Hey guys! I have great news. Fall Break is upon us, and I am ecstatic. Around this time every year, I desperately need a break from papers and tests, and Fall Break is just that. While it may be tempting to just hole up in my apartment, binge watch Netflix, and sleep, Fall Break is an opportunity to explore and have fun. If you are having a hard time thinking of ways to spend your break, we have some ideas. Here are some of the ways the Choctawk team members are spending our long weekend.
I have a confession. The other day, I sat all day on my couch and binge-watched The Office. My sole meal for that particular day consisted of chocolate chip banana pancakes and peanut butter. Now that's out in the open, I'm here to tell you that you shouldn't spend your summer like that. With the summer heat pounding down and left-over exhaustion from classes, lazy days are sometimes needed, but the problem arises when those days become the entire summer. You only have one body, so treat yourself well this summer. What does that look like practically? We have some ideas!
Summer is months away, and I am craving the bright sun and long days. When I was a child, summer meant school was out of session, leaving plenty of time for vacation, camp, sleepovers, and movie marathons. As I've aged, summer has become a short window to explore the world and to take on new challenges.
