Cancun, Hawaii, Florida. When you think of Spring Break, what are the first places that you think of? I know for a fact that Lake Havasu immediately hits your frontal lobe. Spring Break is a time to get together with friends, consume alcohol at an alarming rate, and maybe even fall in love or whatever, I don't know.
Spring Break is the one time of the year that you can get away, leave the madness at home and be somebody. You can wear a sick visor, open toed shoes and engage in dangerous water activities. You can completely mutilate a beach and nobody will bat an eye, why? Because Spring Break, that's why.
Ready for the kicker? I think Spring Break is overrated. I mean who want's to spend $1000 on plane tickets alone? I sure as shit don't, flying sucks. Now, I've never gone on a big Spring Break trip so that may make me a little biased but hear me out. Let's do a little arithmetic.
$1,000 for plane tickets
$250 for hotel rooms
$500 for alcohol (per night most likely)
Don't know about you but I'd rather spend that money on a down payment for a Subaru Crosstrek. Again, I may be biased since I've never gone on a Spring Break trip but is it really worth it? On the first day of Spring quarter you're rolling into class with awkward tan lines, a liver enzyme problem and a potential child support lawsuit on your hands. I say we forget about Spring Break and the crowds, the booze, the crazy people and we focus on something meaningful, Summer Break. Ah yes, the older brother to Spring Break, the tried and true. Mad because you only get two weeks of vacation per year? Well buddy, you chose a profession that doesn't accommodate your leisurely needs. Summer Break is March Madness to your regional finals, it's regular season to your preseason.
What I'm trying to say is this, give Summer Break the credit it deserves. Spring Break walked so Summer Break can run. Be a teacher you fools.
