The Best Winter Break Activities For The Young And Restless

6 weeks of winter break? You can bet I'll need something fun to do.

The Best Winter Break Activities For The Young And Restless

If you are like me, you can't wait for Winter Break. Four to six weeks of no classes, no homework, and no work for me (I work on my school's campus in the Library and we will be closed for Winter Break). Of course, there's lots of holiday shopping and Christmas preparation to expect, but I am also hoping to plan some fun activities into my calendar this December.

Feel free to borrow some of these fun ideas for Winter Break:

Take a road trip!

Me and some girlfriends are planning a weekend road trip to Vancouver, Canada this January. This is a fun and fairly cheap mini vacation, and a chance to explore a new place while making memories with friends!

Bake, bake, bake, and bake some more!

I love to bake treats and goodies in extraneous amounts. If you're like me, your counters are filled to the max with cheesecake bites, brownies and cupcakes, and other tarts and pastries. It' s fun to bring trays of goodies to parties, or even just paper plates of treats to neighbors and friends. I've found that no one turns down a plate of homemade treats.


Although it is extremely cold in the Pacific Northwest this time of year, hiking and nature walks are crisp yet beautiful. Take the morning or afternoon and dedicate it to a hike or walk and I'm sure you won't regret it. I in no way define myself as a nature or outdoorsy person, but even I can enjoy a short hike now and then.

Movie nights with friends!

If I'm not in class, nor are my classmates. Christmas movies are best watched in marathons with popcorn and hot chocolate, invite friends and family members for a comfy night filled with laughs and movie entertainment.

Do some crafts!

Even if you are not an "artsy" person, try to google some easy crafts. Maybe you can decorate your house, dorm room, or dining room table with some fun and festive conversation pieces for this holiday season!

Ice Skating!

Never tried it? It's not as difficult as it sounds! Super fun, super festive, and a relatively cheap afternoon activity for you and some friends!

Concerts, plays, and musicals!

If you have the opportunity to attend a local concert, play, or musical, I would definitely recommend it! I've heard The Nutcracker is amazing!

What Memorial Day Is

The importance of Memorial Day

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.
