Spending Spring Break At Home


This week officially marks my last ever Spring Break. At my school we have Spring Break so early that I miss out on getting to plan anything with my friends who usually have Spring Break at the end of March. I also have work every afternoon which makes it a little more difficult to make any plans that involve going further than an hour or so away. Here are some things you can do to still make the most of your break, even if you're staying home. 

Get your nails done. Paint them a bright, spring color and think of warmer days. 

Clean a room in your house and than spend all day making it messy again. Everyday this week I've cleaned at least one room in my apartment, I started with the kitchen, and then I cooked in it that night and made it messy again. But that's okay. 

DIY something. I loved this paper rose idea from the girl who loved to write. It's so simple and pretty but it doesn't take many supplies! 

Spend a few hours in the library. Not doing school work of course, but picking out what could be your new favorite book. 

If you live near a beach, go there and have a picnic. Bring your new book, a few snacks and a blanket and hit the beach. 

Take a class in something new. If you don't have time to go out to take one, try one like this online Succulent Gardening Class from Brit & Co. 

Re-organize your closet. Sell some things that you don't wear anymore on sites like Poshmark or Ebay. Not only will you have more space but you'll also have more money for new clothes! 

Try a new ice cream place. We have a new one near our apartment called the little calf creamery and all of their ice cream is homemade. It's safe to say that I am addicted. 

Go thrift store shopping. Even if you don't buy anything it's still fun to try stuff on. Have a movie montage while you're at it. 

Go to the movies on your own. This is something I have never done! But I've always admired people who do things on their own, and eventually I'd like to have the courage to be one of those people. 

Meet some girlfriends out for breakfast or on their lunch break. Catch up, we all know how busy everyone is now that were all out here pretending to be adults. Spend some time together. 

Stay up late, sleep in, watch netflix, be productive, or don't. That's the beauty of Spring Break, it's really all about what you make it.
