Top 10 Things To Do Over Spring Break
To some, it feels like just a few days ago we were all migrating back to campus for the start of the new semester. Others are crawling toward Friday with the desperation of someone who hasn’t had a break in 10 years. Either way, spring break is finally, thankfully, upon us. Whether you’re taking advantage of the sabbatical to travel to a sun-warmed beach, to catch up on work or just to relax at home, we’re offering some alternative spring break activities in this week’s Top 10.
Take the week off — that’s what it’s for anyway. Your work will be in the same place on your desk when you get back.
We have a hopeful feeling that if we warn you about procrastinating, you will actually keep on your toes about homework and other responsibilities. We also have an inkling of dread that warning you is pointless and the anxiety of not having done anything all break will hit you all at once in the final, fleeting moments of break.

This one will be especially effective if you grow a long beard and stroke it wistfully while recalling the lonely, vast emptiness of outer space.
Whether you left your secondary education career as a well-liked class favorite or an obnoxious troublemaker, make sure to pay a visit to your alma mater’s halls again to see how many teachers’ names you’ve forgotten. For added adventure, find the spot where Sarah turned you down for prom and bask in the nostalgia of that crushing rejection.
You can have all the fun of spring break right here in Oakland. Better yet, go to the now-empty classrooms when you would normally have class. Practice conversations with fellow classmates and take notes based on the upcoming readings in the syllabus. This way, you’ll be more than ready to make new friends and experience academic success when everyone comes back after break.
Admittedly, this is probably the hardest one on this list, as mastering the ancient practice requires a depth of wisdom and understanding that eludes the casual learner. But have we mentioned how much time you’ll have? You got this.
Oh yeah, now is the time. Today is the day. There’s no time like the present. We’re going to make it happen. Oh man, I’m so psyched. Are we seriously doing this right now? Dude. Don’t tease me, bro.
That guy has had it too good for too long. After the way he abandoned us by ditching “Live! with Regis and Kelly,” — leaving us stuck with merely “The Today Show,” — he could use a verbal dressing down.
