Going Home for Spring Break
Every year there is a rush of excitement around Spring Break. Everyone is going to
the beach, or someplace warm and tropical, but maybe you’re just planning to go
home. Never fear! You aren’t the only one! Sometimes, home can be even better than
going somewhere exotic. If you are going home, here are some tips to help you make
the most of your break:
1. Enjoy the time with your family.
I know, you might feel like it’s super lame; you’re stuck at home all week. But
seriously, if you haven’t seen your family in awhile they are probably super
pumped that you are home for a bit! Enjoy the time with them while you can
before you’re back in Tigertown.
2. Eat as many home cooked meals as possible.
I don’t think its possible to say this enough…GOD BLESS REAL FOOD.
Seriously, we have another month or so of dining hall food, or cereal for
dinner, or half cooked Ramen, or whatever you are eating because you’re just
too tired to make real food. Whether it’s a family recipe, or your favorite
meal, enjoy it while you can. Pack up a box of it and take it back to Clemson
While you most likely have homework assignments and other things to do,
this is the most likely the first time since Winter Break that you’ve been able
to really breathe. Catch up on your Netflix, go to the movies, or just sit and
watch TV for awhile. You’ve been working hard and you deserve a break!
4. Be Smart
While relaxing is essential, if there is a big project you have been putting off,
or little things piling up that you need to accomplish, now is the perfect time
to do it! Going back to school ahead of the game can be a game changer in
your stress levels, and you will be patting yourself on the back later.
REALITY CHECK: (Do not read if you are not prepared to face reality,
especially if you are a senior) When we get back from Spring Break, there is
only about a month until finals begin. But never fear Tigers, we will power
through! No matter where you go for Spring Break, enjoy every second,
because your next break will mark a completed year at Clemson!
