Have a Safe (and Productive) Spring Break

Yes, it is still only February, and yes, it probably does seem crazy that I am posting this now, but it is important. Spring break is a week of no classes (in case you weren’t aware), and there are many ways that one can spend that week. I am not here to tell you what to do for that week of time, especially because it is almost too late to be planning something super extravagant. If you have already made plans, that’s great! If you are stuck and are needing last minute inspiration, that’s okay, too! Either way, I’ve got you covered.

Killer Harmony | Have a Safe (and Productive) Spring Break | A college junior's tips on making the most of your week off from school. What to do if you are travelling or staying at home. Be safe and have fun!

I don’t have any concrete plans for spring break, but I am pretty sure that I will be spending that week at home. I plan on using the extra time to work on my blog and Etsy shop (which you can access by clicking “Shop My Stuff”). I will of course keep up with a good practice schedule, because #musicmajorprobs, amiright? I hope to get together with some people who are in town, but I want my spring break to be safe and productive (and fun).

To Anyone Travelling:
If you are going anywhere with friends or family or school, and you will be spending some of that time alone (what?), you need to know how to stay safe. Especially if you are going to one of the typical spring break places (think: Panama City Beach), you need to always be aware of your surroundings. Use the buddy system, don’t do anything or go anywhere that gives you the heebie jeebies. I’ve heard the stories, you’ve heard the stories. You don’t want to have your supposed week of fun to be ruined by a bad decision. Just make good choices.

The Stay-cation-ers:
Now, if your spring break will consist of a “stay-cation” either at your college or back in your hometown, you still need to stay safe. But if you are lacking in the ideas department, I have some things to get you brainstorming and get you excited for a week of no class. I hope to spend most of that week practicing music, working on my blog and brand, and working on my online store.

Aspiring Bloggers:
If you want to start a blog, there is no better time to do it than when you have free time. If you don’t have a part time job, you probably won’t be able to get one for the single week unless you know someone looking for help for the week. This means that spring break options are more limited than summer break. Now is the time to at least get a plan completed for your blog or business.

Other Hobbyists:
If you are not interested in blogging, try and find another hobby that you could pick up over the week. Whether you want to learn to knit, sew, or read a new book, you can find something. Or, if you know of a family who will be out of town for the week, ask and see if they need someone to house sit or pet sit. It can put a lot of people at ease if they know someone trustworthy will be at their house while they are gone.

With this lovely place called the internet, you have access to so much. Odds are you will find something to keep you busy. Even if all that is is binge-watching your favorite shows on Netflix! So don’t feel bad if you don’t have the most extravagant plans for spring break. Just make sure you are safe and have fun (My mom says in that order)!
