We all know that rare feeling of accomplishment; that feeling of completeness, triumph and anticipation for the time ahead. When you have time to sleep all day, work as much as you want and even gain a few pounds. I am talking of course about spring break, it is just too bad it only lasts a week.
While most people use spring break as a means to stay in town and work or relax, I use spring break as a means to broaden my horizons. I try to experience new and exotic things such as sushi, travels, books or meditation. I have plans of going to Fort Lauderdale and staying with family, then departing on a ferry to the Bahamas.
Through the school work and studying, most of us forget to live life to the fullest. Your college years only come once in your life, therefore, you must use it efficiently. Once you have a professional career it will be much harder to obtain leisure time. Things to do during spring break include [but not limited to]: skydiving, new foods, IMAX movies, road trips, college visits, new restaurants, resorts, get in contact with old friends, internships and new foods. Just remember to “seize the day” as it is translated from the Latin term “Carpe Diem”, because as Mae West once said “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”
I can’t believe it’s already Spring Break! This semester is flying by I didn’t even have time to count down the days until Spring Break was here. I’m looking forward to the much needed break. I don’t really have any exciting plans, on Monday I’m getting braces which I am really excited about! I’ve wanted them forever and thanks to Uncle Sam I am finally able to afford them. I’m glad I’m getting them the week of Spring Break so I’ll have a little bit of time to get used to them. Besides getting braces I’ll just be working as usual, volunteering, spending time with friends and family and of course catching up on sleep! I might even get a head start and start working on some projects for school that are due in April.
I was just thinking I’ve never really done anything special for Spring Break so I’m promising myself now I am going to do something next year for sure. At this time next year it will be my first semester at USF working toward my Bachelor’s so I’m sure it will be much needed then. We all deserve to treat ourselves to a nice break and vacation every once in a while to get away from the hectic college life.I hope all of you have a fun and safe Spring Break! I look forward to coming back rested and ready to finish the rest of the semester off with a bang!
