Midterms have come and gone and spring break is upon us. If you’re anything like me, a poor college student, then you really have no plans this break. So I am here to suggest a couple destinations for you to pursue while your friends post pictures of the beach and pina coladas with those tiny umbrellas.
Whether you’re going back home for the break or staying at your apartment, your bed should be your #1 destination this spring break. After all, who else could be there for you in your time of need better than your bed? No one. The answer is no one.
Now that you’re momentarily free of the weight of education, why not head down to your local grocery store and buy anything and everything your heart desires (as long as you can, you know, afford it). Stock that fridge high so when you wake up from that 4 hour nap, you have a snack or two waiting for you.
Netflix or Hulu
Now that you have some free time, why not catch up on all those shows you’ve been meaning to watch? You and your bed can spend some quality time together as you binge watch the latest season of Workaholics or Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Lose yourself in TV shows and ignore all the responsibilities that wait for you at the end of the break.
Spring Break is a time for you. It is a time for you to take a moment for yourself and remember what you enjoy. And just because you or your family can’t afford a fancy vacation doesn’t mean your break can’t be as fun or as mentally rejuvenating as someone else’s. And Walmart sells those little umbrellas, too, you know.
