As all Bobcats know, working hard is an everyday part of life here at Texas State University. Between balancing academics, being involved in extracurricular activities and, more often than not, working to pay the bills all at the same time, being a student is a full time job in and of itself. So it’s no wonder that we all get excited about catching a break every once in a while.
Spring Break is more than just a break away from school. Many of us utilize our time to go on vacation with friends, to catch up and hang outside of our rushed college lives. Some of us go home to family and friends back home. However you spend your free time this break it’s not just about having time off. It’s a time to sit back, relax and rejuvenate so that you can finish out the semester strong once you’ve returned. This semester has been a very busy one already, but once we return things will certainly be even more hectic than before.
Big events such as River Fest, LBJ Student Center’s Great Weiner Battle and of course the dreaded pre-finals are all good reasons to get some rest during the week that we have off. The second half of the Spring semester is also a busy time for student involvement.
Organizations’ final events of the year typically take place this first two weeks in April, so it is a great chance for you to check out some of the awesome things that they do and think about getting involved next semester.
It’s no secret that the Spring semester goes by faster than Fall, but you can make the most of it by making the most of your time off next week. Sit back, relax, kick your feet up and forget about some responsibility for a while. If you do that you’ll be more than ready to kick it into high gear when you return. Have a great, and safe, Spring Break bobcats and we’ll see you back here on the 19th!
