Not Florida Bound for Spring Break

Today marks the first day of Spring Break for all students attending Winona State University. Most students are in the air flying south to warm and sunny Florida. I, on the other hand, am sitting in my bed watching Couples Retreat and preparing for a day filled with laundry.

Let the record show that I have never been on a "real" Spring Break. Which means, I have never flown down to Florida to spend a week with thousands of other college students drinking each day as if it were their last - for some it might be. Drink responsibly people, haven't you seen the Heineken commercials?

In my opinion, Spring Breaking in Florida on a beach and drinking all day does not sound like fun. There is always the inevitable hangover moment the next day, and headaches aren't my friend. Some people think that if they just keep drinking that they will avoid the hangover. I don't know if this is true. I don't want to try it though.

So what am I going to do with my week long break from school? Well, I'm going to visit my friend Andrea in River Falls, go to TI, lounge around my apartment in my pjs all day, work, and go home to visit my parents. I'm looking forward to it. I could really use a break right now, and this week couldn't have come at a better time.

For all of you going to Florida - drink plenty of water, kiss only the people that you know (my nutrition teacher tells us this every Thursday after class), watch your drink, and wear sunscreen. Don't forget to wear SUNSCREEN, or else you will come back looking like a lobster and I will make fun of you.

Happy Spring Break everyone!

Oh, and Happy Birthday to my sister! Enjoy your day with the family, Kyrstin!!!! She has her own blog too where she features the crafts she does with her kids: See What We Did Today

  6. Sounds like a very nice and reasonable spring break week to me. And those are some excellent tips for the spring breakers down south. Drunkenness plus no sunscreen equals one side of your body being lobster red and the other side... notsomuch!

  9. Happy Follow Friday... :)

    ... and I , uh, may have graduated with an English degree in 2007 and ... well I am now a college adviser (after going back for my Master's in Mass Comm). Good luck it's rough out there!

    And, nothing's wrong with a Florida spring break! ;) I happen to live on the beach here.

  11. Thanks for the birthday wishes. I did spring break in Florida one time it was fun, but we drove down, and relaxed on the beach alllllllll day/week long! I think the road trip down was one of the best parts of the trip!

  13. I have never been on a official spring break trip , either. I went to the cities last year and that was the closest I've come. A week of relaxing from school sounds much better than a popular (read:crowded) spring break destination.

  20. Don't feel bad about not hitting up the Flo-Ridah up over spring break. I've been. Didn't get drunk every day and might not have had a drink the whole time. Plus everything is so crowded, it is miserable.
