Thoughts Every College Student Has The Week Before Spring Break

Basically just counting down the days until it is finally here!

Thoughts Every College Student Has The Week Before Spring Break

The week we have been waiting for since school started back in January is almost here. Christmas Break was a wonderful, much-needed, month long relaxing vacation. And although summer is still pretty far and we still have finals to face, spring break is finally upon us! All anyone is talking about is spring break and thats all anyones mind is going to. However, I am pretty sure that every teacher decided that this week would be a perfect week to give all of their exams even some on the same day (good thing I have three on Wednesday)! So instead of getting to focus on the fun times we will have whether it's at home or at the beach, we get to spend the week before spring break panicking and trying to study for a huge amount of exams. Here are some thoughts every college student has the week before spring break:

"I can't wait to go home, I can't wait to go home!"

For most, home isn't just 5-10 minutes away from where you are going to school. That's why lots of college students (especially first years) take advantage of the week of to go home and see their families! I know going to school 2 hours away is hard to be away from my parents and sister especially for so long. Oh, and getting to see my puppy will definitely be the highlight of my week! It is hard not to want to go home and just relax in your own bed for a week; sounds like a perfect spring break to me!

When all of your teachers schedule all of your exams on the same day.

I really got lucky with all my professors this semester. They are all very understanding and really help to teach the material which has helped me to so far have a very successful semester. However, with that being said, them being considerate teachers, they all thought it would be nice to make the exam the Wednesday before spring break instead of the Friday. However, that now leads me to having 3 exams on Wednesday all within 3 hours of each other! So while most will be losing sleep over getting to go to the beach in 2 days, I'll be losing sleep by studying just like every other college student will be during the week!

"I haven't had time to start my spring break workout, but I swear I'm starting today."

Oh, the cliche, "spring break beach bod". I won't be going to the beach this spring break so I am not as worried on this one as others are. However, I have heard everything From girls who started their "diets" weeks ago and to those others who are still getting ready to begin days before they leave. It is said so much, especially this week before classes and also adds in to the extra stress of this week before break.

Getting carried away in your thoughts of where you'll be just a week from today.

Just the idea that you will get to be on the beach reading a book, discovering a new town, or just hanging with your family and friends at home is a relaxing thought. Through months of stressful school work, getting that week to have a second to just breathe and not stress about everything going on in your life at the moment is wonderful. It's like letting your brain "nap" and take a break for an entire week!

That feeling when you finally get out of your last class on Friday and get to leave.

Of course you'll be coming back to campus in just a little over a week, but the time off sounds so amazing right now, you can't even think about how little the time is compared to other breaks. Everyone have a fun, safe, and relaxing spring break and begin the countdown until summer break!

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
