So how does winter break for college students go about? Well for one thing there is no place like home right? Going home for winter break can bring about the good and the bad. The reason being is that after being away from home during that big fall semester at university there is quite an adjustment to make. Therefore if you want to find out how to make the most of those 4 weeks of break, here are some tips.
What is the first thing to consider in regards to winter break as a student? Well consider this question. Do you really need to do that job during break? Yes you might be thinking that you want to make some cash while you do not have to worry about school work. But the thing you might be surprised about is that it is highly recommended that you take a break from your job during the break. You do not need any stress during this wonderful holiday time! Save your workload until you return to university. In the meantime have that cup of hot chocolate and just relax.
• More than likely you have that big pile of laundry that you just want cleaned right? During the student winter break bring that big basket of laundry home. More than likely your parent will be so happy to have you back that they will do it for you. That means for time for relaxation and some PS3 too! In a way it is a win-win situation for everyone. So when you come back from your winter break as a college student, you will have a nice fresh load of clothes again.
• Take the advantage of your winter break and enjoy things you could not enjoy due to your studies. Read your favorite books, do some holiday shopping, bake cookies and brownies, watch all the TV you want, and so much more. Play on that Xbox-360 or have fun on the iPad. Maybe watch a showing of How the Grinch Stole Christmas or the Polar Express? If you are kind enough maybe you can help around the house for holiday preparation. Get yourself into that holiday spirit! You have a couple of weeks ahead of you. There is definitely something that you can do!
• Okay, maybe prepare a little bit for your next college semester. By preparing I mean stock up on some new supplies such as notebooks, pens, and folders, and get a new wardrobe if needed. Hey spring is around the corner after all. Maybe your bedroom needs a makeover as well? Take the time during your student winter break to freshen up your bedroom a little bit. Maybe you need new sheets, new pillows, a new bedside lamp, or your closet needs to be cleaned out? By having a nice clean room you will be ready to take in the holiday season
All in all enjoy your student winter break and have a happy holiday!
