College Talk: Things to Do Over Winter Break

The idea of having a whole month off of school is amazing...until you actually run out of things to do. My finals just ended last Friday and honestly, I'm already bored! What's a girl to do? I decided to come up with a list of ideas that I'm planning on doing this break and maybe it will inspire you to do the same. Winter break is a precious time that shouldn't be wasted!

1.) Get a Seasonal Job - Tons of places are still hiring for the holidays so spend your time making some extra cash! If you don't like the job, at least it's seasonal so you can leave right after the holidays are over! 

2.) Work Out - Winter break is a great time to form good habits like working out. Ease your way into a healthier lifestyle by taking a spin class or trying a new workout routine at the gym.

3.) Make New Friends - All your college friends have gone back home and you might be feeling a little lonely. Try and reach out to people you've never talked to before and meet up at some place like a coffee shop. You never know, you might just meet your new best friend over break!

4.) Start a Blog - I've already dedicated a post to this here!

5.) Travel - This is my favorite thing to do over break and is worth every single penny. Take a couple friends with you and explore a new city. If you're really feeling adventurous, take a solo trip! Make sure to check out sites like Kayak for good deals. 

6.) Explore Your Hometown - Travel can be a bit expensive so why not explore your hometown first? Try out a new restaurant or see what events are going on. 

7.) Enjoy the Quiet - It's rare to find quiet moments during a hectic semester. Grab a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy the fact that you can finally relax after working hard for finals. Read a book, take a bubble bath, or find a good place to watch the sunset.

8.) Host a Party - Catch up with your old friends by hosting a holiday party where everyone can dress up and bring a dish. It'll be a nice break from the ordinary!

9.) Ice Skating - Take advantage of the wintertime by doing winter activities like ice skating! Sometimes it's good to feel like a kid again.

10.) Do Something That You've Been Wanting to Do Forever - We all have a bunch of recipes and crafts that we've pinned on Pinterest. Now's the perfect time to actually do them!

Hope you enjoyed this post! Follow me @ruyakiraccc on Instagram if you're really bored haha. 

Until next time lovelies,
