Spring Break Alternatives


A majority of the people I know from school and what not went somewhere for spring break. For me its a little unusual that a lot of people are still willing to go somewhere for spring break considering the state of our economy. This got me thinking… what would be other things to do instead of cliche spring break? I came up with a few:

Get ahead with your classes: If you have nothing to do you could try to get some work done for after break. It will make your life easier when you get back to school after break.

Alternative spring break: A couple of my friends did this as well. They would go to a city and volunteer there for a week. I’m not sure what else it consist of but this is a pretty solid idea. I think ever college kid should do at least one of these breaks in their 4 or 5 years.

Plan your summer: Start to look for what you’re going to do during the summer. Looking for an internship? Looking for a job? Use this break to get ahead and plan your summer.

Explore a city or town that’s relatively close: I live about 35 minutes from Chicago but I’ve never really experienced and explored Chicago. Maybe spring break would be a good time to explore that one place you wouldn’t other wise.

Uhhh….actually take a break?!?!?!: You could stay at home and rest? Go to sleep late and wake up later? Watch T.V like its your job?

I’m sure some of you task warriors out there can do one or more of these. I actually made a list of things I wanted to get done at the beginning of break and that’s what I’m working on.

ohhh.. and ray j should stop making music (random point +1)
