9 Winter Break Activities That Are Sure To Keep Boredom Away

Looking for a few things to do this winter break to keep you from drowning in boredom? Check these ideas out!

1. Get a job. 

This is a great way to stay busy while also making a little extra cash before going back to school. Just try to get a job that you will actually enjoy working at so it doesn't end up ruining your fun over break!

2. Catch up with old friends.

Going home over winter break is the best time to catch up with some old friends from high school! Although everyone's schedules may be crazy, try to just go out to lunch sometime to catch up!

3. Go to a holiday light show.

Although you may have to do this early on over winter break, try to get to a light show or display before Christmas! It will be so festive and its always fun to go and take in all the beautiful lights with a few friends or significant other.

4. Do your hobby. 

You love playing basketball? Join a winter league! Want to knit a scarf? Do it!! Finally, take some time for your self and do something that you love doing but never have time to do during the school year.

5. Read a book. 

You'll finally have enough time to curl up by the fire and read that book that has been sitting on your shelf all year!

6. Go to the city.

If you live near the city, spend a day in the city!! There is always so much to do and its always decorated so nice for the holiday season.

7. Visit family. 

If you have family members that you only get to see a few times a year, take some time over break to go and visit them! It is also a great excuse to travel if they live far!

8. Take an online class. 

Although you just finished the semester and school work may be the last thing on your mind it is a great time to get ahead in your coursework!

9. Binge watch an entire TV series. 

I think this one speaks for its self and it's always a great option.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
