4 Ways To Pass The Time When You’re Stuck Traveling All Day

4 Ways To Pass The Time When You’re Stuck Traveling All Day

Whether you're stuck in the car, cramped in a plane or I don't know, riding on a midnight train to Georgia.

Spring break is upon us! As you make way your way to your various spring break destinations, here are some ideas to pass the time. If you're in the airport waiting for what seems like forever for your connecting flight or just stuck in the car with nothing to do here are some things you could try to pass the time.

1. Take A Walk

If you're at the airport, go on a little stroll from terminal to terminal. You’ll get some steps in before you get on the plane. You can also peruse the various Hudson News stands and pick up some snick-snacks or maybe even the new Cosmo. This also gives you an excellent chance to people watch. If you're just a little nosey like me, then this is reason enough.

2. Make Up Stories About The People Around You

While you take the a fore mentioned walk around the terminal make up some stories! This is one of my favorite activities whenever I’m painfully bored while traveling. Take turns making up a stranger's life story with your friend. Or if you're traveling solo make up the dialogue in your head. Maybe don’t talk to yourself. Airports are a little stressful anyway so perhaps being the person sitting alone and talking to themselves isn't the best thing.

3. Catch Up On Some Homework

It might be spring break, but homework waits for no one! If you have homework to get done you might as well finish them on your way to your destination. (I know I will be, because I’m the queen of procrastination). Whether your destination is a tropical island, the mountains, a festival or your home you’ll want to be able to be homework-free and stress-free. Bite the bullet and just finish all your work in one day if you've put it off to the last minute. Then you’ll have time for tanning, relaxing and chilling with your pets.

4. Make A Middle School Throwback Playlist

No doubt you and your squad will be jamming the whole way to wherever you might be going. I mean things might get a little emo when Bring Me To Life by Evanescence comes on, but that’s okay. Those painful middle school years might come back to you there for a hot minute, but it’s in the past. You can quickly pick things back up by changing the song to something more upbeat like "Low" by Flo-Rida. I don't know about you, but that always gets me lit. Traveling might be somewhat of a bore, but it’s never boring aggressively booty popping to your favorite throwbacks with your friends.

No matter where this spring break takes you, I hope you get all the sleep, all the fun and all the #friendship your heart desires. And remember; don’t do anything too stupid. No matter how bored you might be.

5 Things To Do This Summer

This simple things will help you get the most out of your summer.

While summer is usually the time that college students start internships or start working full-time to rake in some cash, there are a few other summer activities that are important to keep in mind as we head off into the month of May. Here are a couple of things that you can do to get the most out of your summer:

1. Go on a trip

For the next few months, you probably have more freedom to travel than you do while class is in session. Go on a trip! Get a change of scene, get to know a new place; you'd be surprised how good this is for your mental health.

2. Start exercising

You have no classes to "catch up on" and no homework to do. It is time to get in shape, my friend.

3. Journal

It's nice to look back and see how much you've grown through the years, not to mention your summer shenanigans.

4. Spend some time with the fam

You probably have a lot of catching up to do after being away at school for so long. You may not think it's true, but your family probably misses you! Give them some love and see what's been going on in their lives.

5. Read a book

I know, I know, read? Really? But this is different from reading for class; this is reading for fun. Reading to expand your horizons and become enveloped in another world. You may not remember how fun this can be, but trust me, it'll be worth the time.
