Spring break is finally here! Regardless of your plans, here are some examples of how your week will really go.
1. Going home for spring break
Expectation: Finally, some quiet time perfect for much-needed rest and relaxation!
Reality: What? I have all this work to do? I have a midterm the Monday we get back?
2. Going away for spring break
Expectation: You’ll practically live on the beach, having the time of your life!
Reality: Let’s be real—not only will you not have first-class seats on the plane, but you most likely won’t be going to the luxury location of your choice on a collegiette’s budget.
3. Spring cleaning
Expectation: You finally have time to make your room neat and clean, keeping you calm before midterms!
Reality: Cleaning takes so much effort. If I just spray a bunch of Lysol around does it count?
4. The Weather
Expectation: Finally! Winter’s over and it’s time for some sunshine!
Reality: Williamsburg weather isn’t finished messing with you yet.
5. Studying for midterms
Expectation: You’ll get so much done! You have a whole week to space out your studying and feel prepared for your midterms!
Reality: It’s Sunday night and you’re cramming as soon as you get back to campus for that 8 am Monday exam.
All jokes aside, spring break may not be perfect, but it will definitely be fun no matter where you go or what you do. Have a great spring break—we’ve earned it!
