Things to avoid this Spring Break


Elliott Kelly, staff writer

During spring break, there are many things that people like to do, and some things that we have to do, but some things should be avoided as much as possible.  Especially in the situation we are living in, we have to be careful to avoid putting ourselves in dangerous or precarious positions.


One of the biggest blunders you can make this spring break: Waking up early.

There are several reasons for this including:

  • Nothing happens in the morning anyway.
  • Your parents will become so annoyed with a dirty house they’ll do your chores for you.
  • You get proper sleep despite the late nights with friends.


Another huge mistake to avoid: staying indoors.  This has many reasons including, but not limited to:

  • There are more chances for your parents to make you do chores.
  • Instagram hasn’t changed since you looked three minutes ago.
  • You can’t buy ice cream from inside your house.
  • The weather is finally improving, you don’t want to miss out.


Finally, quite possibly the biggest oversight: not stocking the fridge/pantry.  This is crucial because:

  • You’re home all day.
  • Food is always a good choice.
  • Sometimes cooking is too much work.
  • You always need Cheezits.


Be careful this year because doing spring break properly is crucial to a good week off school.  As you enjoy your time to yourself, be safe and have fun.  There are many things to do this spring break, so avoid doing things that are disadvantageous.
