A wonderful thing about college is that there’s so much time to do things. Unlike in high school where classes and activities are packed together, there’s time to breathe in between your classes and other pursuits. This applies to winter break as well. When I finished my last final on December 19th, I had a full month of break ahead of me. One full month! There’s only so much binge watching and laziness to go around. And unlike the summer, where getting a job or internship usually takes up time, I had no plans of working and wasn’t even thinking about internships as a first year just done with first semester. It’s rare to ever get free time like this, and I’ve made a list of things to do over break that I hope will help first years next year looking to plan ahead.
There are obviously so many other things to do over break, but these are just a few of the things I did that made my break fun and meaningful.
