Most of us enjoy being home for the holidays. Sure we get antsy to go back to Blacksburg, but it is nice to have nothing to do for a change. Busy schedules leave us with little free time when we’re at school. Here’s a few things for you to do over break that you’ve been neglecting. Go on; you’ll thank yourself later.
1. Go get your nails done: This is my favorite way to pamper myself. A girl always looks put together when she has a fresh coat of polish on. So go get a manicure, pedicure, or both!
2. Go get your hair done: Picking at your split ends? Starting to see your roots? Then it’s definitely time for a trip to the hair salon. If you’re like me, there are only about 2 people you trust touching your hair (and they are both in your hometown).
3. Get caught up on your finances: This one needs an entire post dedicated to itself (check back next Tuesday). No this isn’t a fun one, but it is essential. It is so easy to have an “immediate future” mindset when you’re at school, buying things and leaving $20 in your bank account. Start planning for the year so you won’t be stressed out later.
4. Visit with friends: You’re probably thinking this one is common sense, but a lot of things can get in our way of seeing hometown friends (work schedules, laziness, plans falling through, etc.). Make it a priority this break to get together with friends you don’t get to see that often.
