Befores and Afters of Spring Break

The moment we get back from winter break, we count down the days until we can lie under the sun, throw our textbooks to the wind, and just relax. The promise of spring break is a saving grace from the grey and slushy days of this Midwest winter. The sheer joy and excitement we face prior to spring break is all but shattered when we return to school to finish up the semester. Leaving and returning from spring break is an emotional roller coaster, that can be summed up simply in the gifs below.

 

Before:

You and your friends are ready to go, this is what you have been planning for.

After:

Returning to Winona is going to be rough, but we promise that you will return to reality…eventually.

Before:

You could care less about your grades or school work right now, hell, you deserve this break and you are going to leave everything academic behind.

After:

Wait, what is school and how do you do it?

Before:

You thought you had a lot of money to spend going into this vacation. That private yacht tour and helicopter ride is totally necessary….

After:

Needless to say, you never return home without a large dent in your bank account.

Before:

Prior to spring break, it’s all about getting beach bod ready.

After:

Maybe you were a little too overindulgent over break.

Before:

We all crave that vitamin D we have been lacking for so long.

After:

It will turn to a tan eventually, right?

We have all experienced the ups and downs of leaving and returning from spring break. Cheers to a smooth transition for all, and not too much of a sunburn that a little aloe vera cannot handle!
