How to Have a Great Spring Break If You’re Stuck at Home


How to Have a Great Spring Break if You’re
Stuck at Home. If you can’t afford to get out of town for
spring break, get creative, make the best of it, and have a blast at home. You will need Relaxation techniques Friends
DVDs Local attractions University perks Self improvement Sandwiches Camera Motivation and
volunteerism (optional). Step 1. Vegetate, read, draw, knit, or garden — do
anything but schoolwork during spring break. Step 2. Assemble some other friends who couldn’t get
away and have a nightly film festival. Have a different person choose a new theme
each night. Step 3. Stay every night at a different friend’s house. Consider it a mini-vacation as you tour and
explore other peoples’ property and lifestyles. Step 4. Check out local attractions, such as museums,
art galleries, and theaters. Use university perks, such as free public
transportation, discount meals and merchandise, and free or discounted access to art venues
and attractions, to get out and experience new stuff. Step 5. Eat better, take yoga, become more organized,
or meditate — anything you’ve been meaning to do to improve or spark up your life. Now’s the time, when palm trees and white
sand beaches can’t distract you. Step 6. Find nearby places you’ve never seen to hike,
fish, explore, camp, or just wander with friends. Pretend you’re somewhere exotic. Pack sandwiches and a camera. Volunteer for a week to keep busy and serve
the community. Helping others instead of being preoccupied
with your own problems can be rewarding. Step 7. Spruce up your resume and look for summer
jobs now. March isn’t too early to submit an internship
application. Step 8. Challenge yourself with a project. Make or fix things around the house during
spring break. Doing something for your own edification — or
your parents’ benefit — can give you a sense of freedom and pride. Did you know 10,000 college students spent
their 2006 spring break assisting relief efforts in the Gulf Region after Hurricane Katrina.
