Spring Break Is Here!


Julia Pimmel, Writer

Spring Break is right around the corner for all of us here at Bob Jones, just one more day until we’re free! The “official” dates are March 15 – March 19, but we all know it starts right after the bell rings on Friday. Unfortunately, after Spring Break comes finals. But, that just means the week of not using your brain will feel even nicer (March 15 is national napping day, after all). 

During the break, there’s a lot of things to do while you’re pushing the idea of going back to school out of your mind. You could binge a series on Netflix or Disney+, or do a virtual movie viewing with your friends. If you have a projector at home, since the weather is getting warmer and less miserable, set up a white sheet and have your viewing outside! Another activity for the week could be picking up an old hobby, like crocheting or baking. Maybe you could even treat yourself to a spa day. Spring Break is a great time to waste time. Give yourself a chance to relax and de-stress, you deserve it!

Going places is a lot more difficult than it used to be, but if you are traveling for the break, make sure you and whoever you’re traveling with stay safe (and enjoy the trip). Going to the beach or doing college visits for all my senior friends is a great way to kick off a week of doing nothing. Getting the stuff you have to get done first, that way the rest of the week is all about you and having absolutely zero plans.

In the middle of Spring Break is St. Patrick’s Day (March 17), so make sure to wear some green, and maybe get a shamrock shake if you’re feeling festive! Hopefully, all of you have a nice, relaxing Spring Break like you deserve. This nine-weeks has been super stressful, but it’s almost over! We just have one more day…
