We’ve suffered through cold walks to school, been stuck in the school building rather than at home watching snow fall, and gazed as the sun shone from outside our classroom windows. Normally we’d have had plenty of snow days to give us all a much desired break, yet this year was met with feelings of boredom and desire to be outside enjoying the unusually warm weather.
But don’t fear—spring break is nearly here, and it has come to rescue us all.
Next year, there won’t really be a Spring Break so that summer vacation can be extended to after Labor Day. We don’t always need a break during that time of year because there are usually more snow days to keep us fairly satisfied, but this year we really needed a break. This spring is our last chance to go crazy with vacation plans and really let ourselves go, so we’d better make it count.
Many students are taking advantage of their final chance for a big spring vacation. For example, sophomore Vicah Blair is taking this chance to sunbathe in the sun.
“I’m going to the beach for a couple days,” Blair described.
The beach might be the most common vacation spot, there are other fun activities students are participating in.
“I’ll be biking and probably babysitting my sisters a lot,” illustrated sophomore Rachael Kehrman. “I’m [also] going up to the city where my best friend lives, and our other buddy is coming down.”
Others don’t plan on traveling but are celebrating Easter with friends and family.
“I watch Korean dramas at home,” sophomore Pho Bee explained, “[but] I’m going to church Friday and Easter Sunday.
Spring Break is also a great opportunity to get important things done because you don’t have to work about school work or scheduling conflicts.
“I might get my license during spring break,” junior John Bryan expressed.
It can also be a good time to get work experience.
“I do volunteer at the zoo, so that’s probably what I’m going to do,” junior Alex Bosworth explained, “and look for a job.”
Even though the purpose of spring break is to give students a break from school, some use their time to study and prepare for school-related responsibilities.
“[I’ll be] studying for AP tests,” disclosed junior Amina Ahmed.
Even still, others do not have plans for the break and choose to use their time to relax and enjoy not having any responsibilities.
“My parents try to drag me around and make me hike with them,” described sophomore Robbie Gorey, “but I usually just play video games at home.”
No matter what you do, spring break will hopefully give everyone a well-needed break from school. Your use of the time doesn’t matter as long as you have fun and enjoy yourself.
