Go out with friends.
Ditch the fancy clothes and opt for something more casual and comfortable. It may sound boring and overrated, but nothing beats spending time with your squad. Go out with your crew for some bonding time that may include dinner, a movie, bowling, etc.
Start the holiday season.
Thanksgiving may be over, but the holidays are quickly approaching. Get in the mood by decorating, drinking hot chocolate and watching holiday movies nonstop! ABC Family has already begun its ‘25 Day’s of Christmas’ special.
Slip into the ice skating season!
With the California sunshine slowly fading away, winter is almost here! Grab your squad and celebrate by heading to the ice! The Roseville Galleria has now opened their outdoor rink as well as Skatetown in Roseville. Head to their website to see the schedule for the public rink!
Start/Finish holiday shopping.
School, sports, work, etc. leaves us little to no time to go shopping for our loved ones or ourselves. Take this opportunity to check out different stores so you can get a bang for your buck. Even if you don’t plan on buying anything, window shopping can sometimes take the stress off of this very hectic time of year.
The term isn’t over yet.
The thought of Winter Break approaching has been in every student’s mind since we’ve come back from Thanksgiving Break, but we’re still not quite there yet! Before the terms ends and our grades become final (yikes!), take this opportunity to makeup quizzes/tests, finish missing assignments and study for any finals! And then you can go back to fantasizing about break, we promise!
Never too early to start the party!
We’re still full from our Friendsgiving, but not too full to skip out on Friendsmas! Many students will be occupied with their families during break, but don’t forget about your friends! Celebrate with one another whether you go out or stay in! Plan a Secret Santa amongst each other to put everyone in the giving/receiving mood!
Day-trips in December!
Get an early start with your friends and plan out a day in a whole other area! Whether it’s a quick trip to Apple Hill or exploring the city of San Francisco, a day filled with adventure and laughter is far from boring. Look for cool places to see, good places to eat, and make memories!
12 Days of Netflix and Chill.
You now have time to indulge into your must-see TV shows of the season, so catch up on what you’ve been missing out! Streaming–services like Netflix and Hulu are also great for giving recommendations for new shows. The only way to get rid of your addiction is to tell yourself ‘one more episode!’ at 2am. Don’t let Calculus keep you away from Scandal! And don’t tell us any spoilers!
9. Substitute your friends for food.
This obviously applies to those who haven’t done so yet. Practice some holiday recipes before your upcoming holiday party! This season is all about giving, so give your appetite all those delicious goodies. Check out our Recipe of the Month for inspiration if you’re looking for something new to make!
We look forward to this time of year, but it does get a little crazy at times! Give yourself a little preview to break and just relax! We’ve put in so many stressful hours this semester and it’s time to take a step back and breathe. Do something for yourself like watch TV, read a book, listen to music, or sleep. You deserve it for all your hard work these past months!
