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.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

How To Write Down The Holy Grail Recipe Everyone Begs You To Make

Because everyone has a signature cocktail, cake, or pasta they bring to every potluck.

NBC

From back when I used to bring my mom's classic white chocolate chip cookies to preschool on my birthday to now stirring up my signature tequila cocktails at every friends' barbecue, I've always had a couple of standby recipes in my culinary rotation.

Chances are if you're here, you're probably interested in writing an open letter. Yay! We're excited to have you.

Of course, not all open letters are created equal. In fact, there's a recipe to writing one for Odyssey that'll get featured on one of our many verticals. When it comes to Swoon specifically (for those new around here, that's our dating and relationships vertical), we receive dozens of open letters each month, many of which are all very similar.

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

Meet My Cat: Cheshire, The Stray Turned House Cat Who Lives in Michigan

I never considered myself a cat person, but Chess immediately stole my heart.

Madelyn Darbonne

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).
