Be active

Yes, you finally have the opportunity to sleep till noon and spend the entire day watching Netflix but don’t throw reality away entirely. Use this extra time to apply for internships or do some research on a company. Even just getting a jump start on your next project will really help when school gets back to full swing.

Stay safe
If you are traveling or just staying to chill in Miami, remember to not throw caution by the wayside. Use the buddy system when going out and make sure you always have your phone charged and with you in case of emergencies. Also remember to use that sunscreen when you go to the beach!

When traveling
Make sure you have any necessary documents in order. It’d be quite unfortunate to get to the airport and realize you left your passport on your desk. Keep your money in a secure place, but make sure to always have some accessible for situations where plastic isn’t accepted. Again, always use the buddy system when going somewhere unfamiliar and know what to do or what number to call in an emergency.
Have fun!
The semester is over halfway through. Hard to believe, right? Since you have an entire week where you don’t have to worry about projects or assignments now is the time to go on an adventure or try something new. Make the most of your free time so when all your friends get back from their respective ventures you have your own stories to brag about. Make lots of memories this week! Take tons of pictures (just be careful which ones you put on Facebook!) and make spring break 2014 a great one!
