April 8, 2017 will officially mark the beginning of the long awaited spring break for SHS students.

For many students, a stereotypical spring break of fun in the sun and crazy times with friends are exactly what they are in for. However, what about those introverts who like to party ,but in their pajamas with their cat, and possibly binge watch Gilmore Girls for the third time on Netflix.

An introvert’s idea of spring break may differ from an extroverts; however, that does not mean it is any less exciting or memorable.

First things first, school can be a stressful environment. Why spend spring break stressing over having the perfect beach ready body or rock hard abs when this time could be used to enjoy new recipes and/or restaurants you have been meaning to try.

Being an introvert does not disclude one from the heavy weight of school expectations and endless assignments. It is definitely time to catch up on some sleep. You can always party in your dreams, and kiss those under bags goodbye; you may even awake looking like a new person.

We introverts are familiar with one space and that space only. However, looking at the same surroundings for an extended period of time can be so boring. Use this week to spruce up the space a little. Maybe add a few new throw pillows and/or pictures. Your eyes will thank you.

Introverts get tired too and high school can most definitely leave you feeling a person feeling drained and possibly half alive. To an introvert, a night in is always music to the ears, but why not add some candles, a face mask, and a good book or movie. Self love is beyond important. Plus, its a two-in-one deal:a night-in and a pampering.

Lastly, even introverts need to get out and enjoy the company of friends. If going out really is not your scene, invite a few friends over and have a movie or game night. Make the most of the time you have with your friends because while the time may fade, the memories will last a lifetime.

For some, this may sound like a spring break fit for their grandma; however, an introvert’s heart may be jumping for joy. Spring break is what you make it and does not always have to follow the stereotypes. Just remember not to skip out out on all the fun and spend some time with friends. No, your cat does not count, sorry.
