Spring break is a beautiful time, it’s a taste of freedom smack dab in the middle of spring semester hell. Whether you’re headed to the beach or back home, here are six tips to make this spring break the best one yet.
1. Get all of your school work out of the way
If you’re going away for spring break, make sure you plan accordingly and get spring break assignments done before you leave. This will save you a lot of stress when you arrive back on campus Sunday night. Also, if you’re chilling out all of spring break- don’t procrastinate. Yes, you have a whole week to complete the assignment, but it's better to get it done early and be free the rest of the week.
2. Don’t forget sunscreen
I don’t care if you “never burn,” if you’re going to be out in the sun- wear sunscreen. Skin cancer is not a myth and it’s the sunburns you get when you’re 20 that come back to bite you in the butt later in life. Be safe and prepared by packing sunscreen!
3. Clean before you go
There’s nothing worse than coming back to a messy room after vacation. Save yourself the stress and clean your room after you pack your stuff up for spring break. You’ll thank me later.
4. Get some tunes
What is spring break without a spring break playlist? Sad! Do some searching on Spotify and make a killer playlist so no matter where you go you can grab the aux cord and sing your heart out.
5. Pack warm and cold clothes
So, early March isn’t exactly spring quite yet, as many Georgians know. If you’re headed to the beach make sure to pack a sweater just in case because when the sun goes down so does the temperature. Also, if you’re headed to the beach, bring an extra swimsuit so you don’t have to put on a wet one all week.
6. Drink water
Staying out in the sun all day drinking is a prevailing theme in spring break plans for UGA students. Don’t forget to balance all that sun and drinking with water. Even if you aren’t drinking, extra water never hurt anyone.
