Spring Break: Expectations Vs. Reality

Spring Break is so close we can almost taste it. Whether you’re going to an exotic island with your best friends or if you’re just taking a trip home to relax with your family, spring break always seems to turn out not exactly like how we would expect it to. Like going home for the week expecting to relax and binge-watch old episodes of Scandal on Hulu just to find out that your wifi connection is less-than-stellar. Or taking a road trip with your friends only to get to your destination and discover that the hotel room you found at the last minute looks a little like the set of a Hollywood thriller. No matter where you end up this year, HC UGA is here to remind you of the reality of what your spring break may just turn out to be.
