Snow? What?

So now that its April, the first thing you expect is rain, and some warmer weather.  The past week/weekend was beautiful, grilling and hanging out outside, shorts and a t-shirt.  That changed quickly when it started snowing again.  That's right, April 3rd and its snowing outside, and more is expected to come.  This means two things. Firstly, spring sports are going to be stuck inside for a while once again because mother nature decided to throw us a curveball and leave us guessing.  Another thing it means is that everyone is just going to be mad about the weather.  I mean, who wouldn't be mad when only a few short days ago we were outside in shorts, and now there's snow falling everywhere.  Somethings messed up with this weather, and whether you like it or not, it's New England, deal with it.

Spring Break 2007

Spring break is one of the biggest topics around campus in the weeks before it starts. "Where are you going?" "What are you doing?" are two of the most common questions people ask you about what your doing for your break.  Spring break is supposed to be a time to relax and take your mind off school, and each student has a different way of doing so.  Some kids do the typical college trip, such as Cancun, Florida, Mexico, or anywhere thats warm.  Its a time of drinking and having fun with your friends.  But is that really the best route to take?  A week straight of getting blackout drunk and doing stupid things isn't the brightest idea in the world.  Although its probably fun, why hurt yourself just to have some fun.  Every year you hear about kids dying over spring break from alcohol related incidents, but you don't hear about how many kids have alcohol poisoning.  Don't get me wrong, its college and we're going to party and have fun, but thats pretty heavy.  Other kids go home and work.  It's called spring BREAK. Relax, understandably we're broke college kids.  Yea so its a few extra bucks, but we do work every day when it comes to school.  Other kids just hang out home with their friends and visit some people.  Best idea in my eyes because most of the time you have your fun with your friends, visit others who are in college, and don't have to worry about working or anything like that.  You'll still most likely party if thats what you want to do, and you don't have to pay over $1,000 to do it.
