LEARNING TRANSFORMS US.
Spring Break causes students and staff to all be beyond excited to escape the cold, boring school buildings out into the sun all week. While some of us take the chance to sleep in all day and keep up with social media posts about other people’s adventures, there are tons of people who explore new places and new people. Making the most of a week off of school seems ideal, and I asked some students about the best Spring Breaks they’ve ever had. With various answers, it’s obvious how differently people take advantage of their long-awaited vacation.
Madigan Warner, a sophomore at BHS told me about her Spring Break last year. She went on a trip to Seattle and saw the famous gum of wall. Seattle may seem like a cold and gloomy place, but at this time of the year it’s definitely a warm site to see.
Milan Ivkovic is a junior at BHS, and he told me about a laid-back break he took during his freshman year. He says that he spent as much time as possible with as many of his friends as he could, whether that be going on smaller road trips or on morning walks or just hanging out by the pool. It just goes to show that you don’t always have to go somewhere far and tropical or new to experience a fun spring break.
And I couldn’t resist talking about my family’s trip to Disneyland last Spring Break. I’m a five-year-old at heart, and spending the week screaming on rides and soaking up the sun was the perfect getaway.
So who cares if you’re hanging out with friends, or traveling, or doing nothing all week? The whole point of a break is to relax and get away from everyday stresses, so it’s up to you on how you want to do that.
