My Kind of Spring Break

I might be slightly bitter because I am seeing lots of Spring Break posts on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and other kinds of social media. Spring Breaks are great, of course. This is a time for students to unwind and take a breather from their heavy course loads.

Sadly for me, my Spring Break consists of studying, taking two midterms, and keeping up with my readings for my courses that I have put off the past few weeks. In addition to this, I am also working on a research project with my professor, editing a newsletter, planning things for the student organization I co-founded, and looking for internships opportunities to build my resume. Worst of all, it just so happens that I am moving from one home to another, and calling it tedious is an understatement.

Of course, I can’t really complain I missed out on all the fun, because I went to Miami last week for “early” Spring Break already. There are also bright sides of spring break too. Since I work for the school, I don’t have to work this whole week. It gives me extra time to do some things I’ve been meaning to do:  exercise, cook healthy food, read, catch up on my TV shows, or spend time with my loved ones…which is definitely my kind of spring break!

Here’s a look into some of the things I did:


I made healthy food and snacks like these Vietnamese Shrimp Spring Rolls.


I also got some workout sessions in to my schedule.


I’m catching up on Supernatural on Netflix.



I hung out with some of my best friends.


I’m in the process of reading Meg Cabot’s Awaken.

I feel like this Spring Break has been exactly what I needed. I feel very productive and also really well rested!

I hope that all of you have a wonderful Spring Break as well!
