14 Things To Do Over Spring Break When You’re Not Going Anywhere

Unfortunately, spring break is rarely about fabulous vacations and beautiful days. Sometimes we luck out with a great week filled with long-lasting memories. However, if you're like the rest of us, spring break is about binge-watching reality TV and pretending that spring quarter isn't a week away.

1. Cry yourself to sleep.

Giphy

I mean what else is there to do when the constant hustle and bustle of school and upcoming assignments aren't there to distract you from how horrible you feel?

2. Watch "Mamma Mia 2" and fantasize about having that kind of spring break.

Giphy

Nothing screams "spring break!" like one-time flings, the gorgeous scenery of Greece and the cheerful bops of ABBA. Pop in the musical and dream about a getaway that isn't your bed.

3. Watch "Mamma Mia 2" and then promptly cry yourself to sleep.

Giphy

Because you're not in Greece, you don't look like Lily James and the three guys you're hooking up with don't really care about you and they're just weapons for your personal self-destruction anyway. Is there an ABBA song for this?

4. See your therapist.

Giphy

Oh wait. She's on vacation too. Dammit.

5. Go binge on cupcakes once you realize you can’t see your therapist.

Giphy

TREAT YO SELF. Then feel like complete crap about it for the next week.

6. See your friends.

Giphy

The ones that aren't on vacation. Try to be in the moment and take some killer Snapchat stories to help you feel way more adjusted than you actually are.

7. Take all the naps.

Giphy

And much like the cupcakes, feel like crap at the end of the day because you've literally done NOTHING.

8. Go to work and make that moneyyyy.

Giphy

Which is all you'll do this spring break besides sleeping. Work. And not the fun sexy Rihanna kind. The kind where customers yell at you and you don't get paid enough.

9. Wonder what it's like to have money.

Giphy

Because all those paychecks are either going to car payments, rent, or tuition. The least fun things in the world. On the bright side, there is an ABBA song for this.

10. Contemplate getting a sugar daddy.

Giphy

It adds another fun and sexy layer to the Mamma Mia fantasy. But then you realize that's kind of scary and weird and your hands are full with the whole self-destruction thing. Meh.

11. Abuse Uber Eats.

Giphy

I don't care how outrageous the delivery fees are. I don't have to get out of bed!

12. Overdraft at Starbucks the next morning.

Giphy

Wow those delivery fees really add up.

13. Go on a scenic drive. That ultimately ends up at the cupcake shop.

Giphy

That's what your savings account is for.

14. Do whatever the hell you want even if it’s depressing and gross.

Giphy

Then go ahead and write an article about it! But for real go outside if you can and just try to enjoy because spring quarter is literally a week away. Spring break is kind of a rip-off.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.

@lilyjmoe

CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

After a few months of self-quarantining, becoming suspicious of every cough, and blowing through masks like a medical school student, restrictions due to the pandemic are easing up a bit and businesses are warily reopening. While these public spaces may look the same on the outside, the way they function and operate is vastly different than a few months ago.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.
