Sure you may be missing St. John’s, but that doesn’t mean your school break has to be boring. There are plenty of things to do out there to stay busy. Here are ten things you can do while on break to make the most of your time away!
1. Get away.
You can take a seven-day vacation or spend the entire summer exploring and traveling to different parts of the world. Especially if you just graduated, it will feel like a reward to yourself before going back for grad school or starting your career.
2. Take an interesting class.
Try out pottery or an art class this summer. Or maybe brush up on your cooking or photography skills. Whatever the class may be, make it something interesting that you’ve always wanted to do but never had the time for.
3. Spend time with children.
Teach children or babysit for a friend or family member. Children are so fun and they remind us of our youth!
4. Just chill.
No early wakeups, no exams, no homework. You don’t have to do anything but breathe, eat, sleep…and watch Netflix.
5. Go camping.
Summer is the perfect season to go camping with friends. Rent a cabin and hang around the campfire. S’mores are so delicious!
6. Join a sports team.
You can also use this as an excuse to exercise but more with more fun.
7. Learn to swim.
Register for swimming lessons at your nearest pool. The weather is hot enough for you to enjoy a dip in the water and learn a practical skill.
Spend some time serving others at a soup kitchen or shelter in your community.
9. Go to an amusement park, festival or carnival.
There are good times to be shared here! Enjoy the cotton candy, fried Oreos and ice cream. Go with friends or loved ones. You’re never too old to ride the Ferris wheel!
10. Spend time with friends.
If you’re from out of town, your friends from home surely miss you. Hit them up and hit the town. Go for a bit to eat and drinks at a restaurant you all have never been to. Have fun!
