As I sit home already bored and already missing school
, I think about how many things I could be doing rather than sitting on my couch eating a sleeve of Oreos. Although winter break is that awkward long time home, there is so much to do and before you know it you will be back at school drinking your liver away.
Here are some things to put on your To-Do List when your home snuggling with your puppy.
1. Intern or apply to internships.
This is a perfect opportunity to get on top of applying to any internships you are interested. As it can be stressful and overwhelming this is perfect because you do not have to worry about doing school work and filling out an application and getting your resume in order.
2. Get a job.
Money. Money makes the world go round and it will definitely keep you busy if you find a job that pays well. Working at a restaurant is a really easy way to make quick cash fast. Doing anything you can to put some more bills in the piggy bank for the bars will help our so much.
3. Take an online class.
As much as class sucks, online classes don't suck that much. If you're bored, you might as well get ahead and take care of some credits in the meantime. Some online classes offer two week sessions. It can be super easy and will save you from having to take extra credits later on
4. Get holiday presents for your family.
Hit the mall and go shopping for your grandma and mother. There's no better time than the mall during the holidays (actually it sucks trying to find a parking spot), but you're going to have to buy them presents eventually.
5. Go to visit your city with your friends.
Taking advantage of the city closest to your home is important. See a show, go to happy hour, go ice skating. There are so many things to do the list is endless. Get a crew together and make it happen
6. Catch up on sleep.
Sleep is definitely not for the weak. Sleep in as much as you can and catch up on all the Z's you missed during finals week.
7. Get a haircut.
I see those dead ends, go get a fresh cut you know you can't get at school because you don't trust the people that work there. You will feel good and fresh as new.
8. Go to bars with your friends at your local town and see all the daddies.
Why not go to your local bar and see every single person from high school??? Could be fun and an opportunity to get super wasted.
9. Go to all those food places you see on Buzzfeed.
You know you want to, and you know how many friends you tag in those gooey desserts you drooled over in your dorm room. Go find those food places on BuzzFeed and go.
10. Start a new Netflix show.
I highly recommend Shameless or Westworld, but hey up to you. Great chance to finish some seasons in the month you have home.
11. Visit your college friends.
You know how much you miss them, plan a date with your homies from college and get together.
12. Join a gym and workout.
Start your New Years resolution and get in shape like you said you would ever Sunday morning after being hungover and contemplating your life. Join your local gym- no excuses.
