What should I do this Spring Break?

Now that Spring Break has started, what is everyone doing?

For some of us, we are traveling in Hawaii for 8 days and sipping on lemonade (or a Mai Tai) on the beach.

*sigh* "I wish I was here"
*sigh* “I wish I was here”

For others, we were too busy during Winter Quarter or too broke to plan an actual vacation. We are sitting at home contemplating on either staying in PJs for the rest of break or going out with our friends.

"All I want to do is lay in bed and watch Netflix all day"

Why not do both? Sleep in, do a Netflix Binge, and go to an event somewhere close!

You may be thinking, “Huh? An event? Nothing ever goes on here…”

Now for the rest of the time that you are not going to an event, remember to relax over Spring Break. Winter Quarter is usually everyone’s hardest quarter. Take this short break to unwind and cool down before the homestretch. Here are some ways to make this Spring Break beneficial to your body and soul:

  1. Find your own way to relax – go to a spa, take long bubble baths, or just go on a run!

  2. Read a book – Reread your favorite book or read one of these popular books before you see the movie:

    (In order of screening) Divergent, The Longest Ride, Far from the Madding Crowd, Paper Towns, and Scorch Trials

  3. Go on a short road trip – No matter if you and a few of your close friends are going to a nearby park to have a bonfire or going on a long hike, getting away from your usual surroundings will make you feel refreshed and ready to conquer the world.

  4. Besides the Netflix binges, have a movie marathon with your friends. Since school doesn’t start again for a week, you can stay up all night!

  5. Go have a picnic at a nearby beach. Seeing a large body of water not only makes you feel calm but it also makes your break feel memorable, different from your everyday view. Here in Seattle, we would get this feeling at Golden Gardens. Where would you go?

  6. Do something new that you have been dreaming about doing but make sure it’s something small. Sometimes the small things bring the most pleasure. Try a free martial art class, give a moment to try painting. No matter what, it will be a great experience.
