Step 1: Relax Vegetate, read, draw, knit, or garden -- do anything but schoolwork during spring break. Step 2: Do film fests Assemble some other friends who couldn't get away and have a nightly film festival. Have a different person choose a new theme each night. Step 3: Travel in the neighborhood Stay every night at a different friend's house. Consider it a mini-vacation as you tour and explore other peoples' property and lifestyles. Step 4: Check out arts Check out local attractions, such as museums, art galleries, and theaters. Use university perks, such as free public transportation, discount meals and merchandise, and free or discounted access to art venues and attractions, to get out and experience new stuff. Step 5: Improve your life Eat better, take yoga, become more organized, or meditate -- anything you've been meaning to do to improve or spark up your life. Now's the time, when palm trees and white sand beaches can't distract you. Step 6: Hike, fish, wander Find nearby places you've never seen to hike, fish, explore, camp, or just wander with friends. Pretend you're somewhere exotic. Pack sandwiches and a camera. Tip Volunteer for a week to keep busy and serve the community. Helping others instead of being preoccupied with your own problems can be rewarding. Step 7: Get the summer job now Spruce up your resume and look for summer jobs now. March isn't too early to submit an internship application. Step 8: Challenge yourself Challenge yourself with a project. Make or fix things around the house during spring break. Doing something for your own edification -- or your parents' benefit -- can give you a sense of freedom and pride. Did You Know? 10,000 college students spent their 2006 spring break assisting relief efforts in the Gulf Region after Hurricane Katrina.
