How to Be Hella Prepared for Spring Break Vacation
You may have been too busy munchin’ on your Moojo ice cream sandwich to realize that spring break vacation is right around the corner.
As in RIGHT NOW, BITCHES.
Finally, a week-long escape from tests, quizzes, and the dreaded 8 a.m. classes. The middle of March is the perfect time to hit the Colorado slopes or the Caribbean beaches, and with two full weekends to spare, you’ll come back rejuvenated for the final stretch of the semester.
Now, if you’re like me, you booked a five-night trip to a Central American hostel two weeks ago and still haven’t started packing. No fear, because burnt_x is here with a complete list on how to be hella prepared for Sprang Break 2k16.
Of course, all you Gulf Shore party animals will be needing the perfect suit to hit the beaches in full sobriety. Girls, Victoria’s Secret and Triangl.com can provide just the suits you need, and boys, hit up your local retail stores for brands like Quiksilver and Ralph Lauren to rock the beaches. Even skiers should pack a suit in case they come across a hot tub on the slopes.
Tan, tan, tan
There’s nothing like spring break to get some sunshine. Lucky for you, UT has multiple tanning locations around Austin, but beware the bed. Putting direct UVA rays on your skin can have serious consequences, so I would recommend the good, ol’ natural spray tan or packing lots of sunscreen. Even if you’re naturally pale like myself (love that German-Swedish heritage), embrace it! You don’t need the perfect tan to still look killer.
Get yo’ supplies
Wherever you may be going, a vacation is still a vacation, so be sure to pack all the necessities. Multiple pairs of shoes, outfit options, toothbrush, sunscreen, towels, and hats are a few things you might be needing this spring break vacation.
One of the most important parts of taking a vacation (even if it’s an Uber ride to 6th street) is figuring out how to get there. Make sure you’re well informed of all travel plans, including flight times and cab fares, and REMEMBER YOUR PASSPORT. Forgetting your passport after a three-hour car ride to the DFW airport is no bueno (I would know).
More than anything, spring break vacation is meant to be your brief respite from the hectic UT student life. So as stressful as it may be to finally get to the beach or the mountains or the Kerbey Lane Cafe on Guadalupe Street, be sure to take a deep breath and enjoy this break from school.
And for those of you hitting Port A, Gulf Shores, or any of the other crazy college spring break spots, all I can is: God help you.
Let’s party our butts off, Longhorns! Have a great spring break!
