What I'll Actually Be Doing Over Spring Break

Yeah, this year I'm just going to stay home and relax.

What I'll Actually Be Doing Over Spring Break

This Spring Break is different, instead of planning a vacation to a Tropical Island I'll be making reservations for one in my bed. This semester has been long and tiring already, so instead of stressing over planning a trip, I'm just going to relax and stay in bed. Some may disagree and believe that vacationing is the only option to do over Spring Break, but honestly, sometimes it's nice to do nothing at all. So here's my list of activities I'll actually do over break instead of tanning at a beach.


This semester has kept me up for long hours in the night, so all I really need is a day where I can just sleep. Most college students love the idea of napping in between classes and sleeping all weekend (at least for me), so now that Spring Break is approaching this means I can sleep for days with no judgement. We've been working so hard, so why not treat yourself to a day full of sleeping? You deserve it! I know this break I'll be in bed for most of the day and maybe I'll get up for food once every few hours.

Start a new show on Netflix.

Now that you're not worried about studying for a math test or finishing a lab for science, you can actually watch Netflix in peace! How exciting! No interruptions, just non-stop episodes of a new show you want to watch or a classic show you'd love to re-watch. I know this break I'll be starting a new show to watch and hopefully finish during my time off because I won't have any responsibilities... YAY. Thank you Netflix for all your amazing options, it'll be fun hanging out with you for most of my break.

Read a new book.

If I'm not sleeping, watching Netflix, or eating then I'll be starting a new book for sure. Finding a good book is a must during a break, you can finally read something besides American History or Anthropology. Enjoy the free time you have to read a relaxing book, I know I will.

Dressing like a hobo all week.

Now that it's break, I don't have to worry about seeing anyone, which means sweatpants and crew necks all week. If people chose to come over and see me as a mess, that'll be there own fault. I intend to dress for pure comfortable all week, so goodbye jeans and hello sweats.

So this break what will I be doing? Absolutely nothing. It's time I give myself an actual break and just enjoy the comfort of my own home for a whole week. Might as well take advantage of this break because pretty soon we'll be cramming for final papers, final assignments and finals themselves. It's nice to just enjoy the simple things in life sometimes like, sleeping, reading and watching Netflix. Yes, a cruise to Mexico would be dope, but just a take break completely, just relax. You can find me in my bed with a bag of Cheetos in hand. Have a fun Spring Break everyone!

clock indicates that it is free time

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?
