Spring break alternatives: Making the most of your week at home

A good amount of our friends will be heading somewhere warm for spring break, and while you may be regretting passing up the opportunity to go on vacation, I have some pretty great ideas to help fill your time.  I’m not talking about working or doing homework…save that for the semester!! Here are some ideas you may not have thought of:

Workout. While everyone will be enjoying themselves on the beach in PCB, you will be working hard and looking great in the gym. Just because it’s spring break doesn’t mean that you should sit around and do nothing for a week. Start your days off right by getting a workout in and be productive for the rest of your day while you’re at it.

Volunteer. Here at UWW, many degrees require volunteer hours, and why not get it all done in one week, rather than piling yet another thing on your to-do list during the semester. Even if you don’t have to for your major, doing some good for your community is always greatly appreciated.

Visit Family. Most of us have that loving, but nagging, aunt, little sibling, or maybe even older sibling who you haven’t seen in weeks. Perhaps you should pay them a visit, and what better time than a week of nothing better to do. It will give you something to do, and they will love seeing your face!

Movie Night. Give yourself a break from the stressful semester you’ve been having, and just relax. If you don’t like movies, do something else that you do enjoy, like ice-skating for example. Get in touch with some friends from home that you haven’t seen in a while. Basically, what I’m saying here is do something you have been wanting or meaning to do, but just haven’t had the time or resources. Now is the time!! Have some fun; you deserve it!!

What else will you be doing over spring break if you are not going on vaca? We love hearing from our readers!
