Saying Good-Bye to Winter Break

Saying Good-Bye to Winter Break

As the last week of winter break starts to slip away, you’re probably wondering where all your free time went? Between family dinners, holiday celebrations, and reuniting with friends your entire month of freedom happened all too quickly. While you’ve still got a chance, make the most of your last few days of bliss!

  • Spend time with people you haven’t seen yet or won’t see for a while. Give your high school friends a call to hang out one more time before you head back to college or spend the afternoon with Grandma and Grandpa. And let’s face it, Mom and Dad will miss you again too, so don’t forget to spend quality time with them.
  • Read a book for pleasure. Before you know it you’ll have piles of reading to do for classes again. While you’ve still got a little time, read a book just because!
  • Enjoy your last couple home-cooked meals.¬†Going back to dining hall food won’t be too appealing after a month of home-cooked meals. Put in a few dinner requests and enjoy some extra good food before coming back to campus.
  • Take one more good nap. I love afternoon couch naps and they aren’t quite as enjoyable when there’s a stack of homework waiting for you when you wake up. Snooze away if you get the chance!
  • Snuggle with your dog–or cat.¬†Your pets will be the ones you start missing first once you go to school–turns out they are hard to contact when you leave. So be sure to give Fido and Mittens an extra scratch behind the ear before you leave.
  • Start thinking about class again. When you come back you’ll need to get right back into study mode, so start putting yourself in the right mindset. Oh, and you might want to order your books.

Enjoy your last few days at home and get ready for an awesome Spring Semester!
