Spring break: the once a year moment when people get to spend copious amount of money in order to make memories. From cruises to tropical vacations, I cringed when I heard the amount of money fellow students spent to make memories.
When I first came to college, I was such a homebody that I ended up spending my first two spring breaks with my sister, Jenea, who lives in East Bridgewater, Mass. I loved every moment of it because I only get to see her a couple times a year.
My junior year, I spent a week in Nebraska with my uncle and cousins, who I see every couple years if I’m lucky. Although it wasn’t tropical (even though to me it was, since it was 60 degrees there and 20 degrees here), it didn’t matter because I was with my family.
And for my senior year, after much contemplation between cruises and flying someplace tropical, I flew down to Florida with Sam to spend a week in the warm weather with her cousin, Niki.
