4 Ways to Kill Time Before the Semester is Over

This semester is nearing its end, but it still doesn’t feel like it’s ending quite soon enough. So here are four ways for you to kill time as you wait for the semester to end.


  • ​Binge-watch a new series on Netflix

The best way to kill time is by watching a season or two of a new show. My current fav is definitely The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. I grew up watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch and though the 2018 adaptation is much darker, it’s just as binge-worthy.


  • Do some online shopping

Everybody love shopping, and Christmas will be here before you know it, so why not start early and buy gifts for your friends and family?


  • Discover new music

It feels like the radio stations always play the same songs on repeat even though there’s great music outside of the top 40. I could spend hours on Spotify exploring other users’ playlists, discovering new artists and their music.  


  • Start a new book

Books don’t just have to be for class and there are so many good books out there. Many popular movies are based off of books so try finding the book version of your favorite movie!


Hopefully these four things will help keep you busy as you wait for the semester to end and for winter break to finally begin!
