What to Do When You Can’t Travel Over Winter Break

Winter break is probably the best thing your school does for you, other than the whole gives you an education and prepares you for life thing. For about a month after finals, you are left to your own devices, and get to do whatever you want. On top of that, there’s holidays! Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year’s, these all happen during the the time off you have from school, right before you have to go back to the grind of papers, class, and all nighters.

For most of us though, it’s a universal routine for all of us who are stuck in our home state instead of off to an exciting city for the next few weeks.
