Pinion staffers’ suggestions for winter break

Thai Bui, Nyler Acasio, An Vo, and Ryan Vanairsdale

As of December 23rd, winter break has started. At this day of the week, you would normally be in school. However, you won’t be back until next decade. Winter break is 17 days that students can do whatever they want. To make use of this time, you should have a plan.

One thing that should be high on your priority list is to get as much rest as possible. You want to come out of the break as energetic as possible and recovered from the semester. A great way to unwind is to spend time with your family and friends and catch up on things you couldn’t do before because you were too busy. Watching holiday movies can be great to lift up your spirits as well. Whether you prefer the Home Alone or The Polar Express side of things, these can all be a great way to have fun. Although Frozen II isn’t necessarily a holiday movie, its timing and theme make it a great movie to watch around this time of year.

The weather will be a bit more chilly by Hawaii standards, but you can still have fun outdoors. Wet ‘n’ Wild would be a great place to go. Trying all the slides in one day would be quite an achievement, and with many things to do, there’s something to keep almost anyone entertained. Spending time outside can be a great way to recharge and refresh yourself to tackle the new decade.

As 2019 draws to a close, you should start thinking ahead and plan out some New Year’s resolutions. After all, it is the end of the decade, so it will be more special than usual. Create a list of things you want to improve on and follow through. Whether it’s getting into the habit of exercising or cleaning your room more, make sure that you have a plan for how you want to change this decade.

Having a plan over winter break is always a good thing to do, but make sure that you’re doing what is best for you. After all, 17 days is a lot of time. There’s no shortage of possibilities, so make sure that you don’t let this winter break slip by without purpose.
