Activities To Get You Excited For The Spring Season

This winter has been very dark, cold and has been filled with snow. Spring is right around the corner, but some of us can’t see the end of winter in sight. Winter weather can make us tired and feel gloomy, but it is time to wake up and smell the roses. Spring is a time of happiness and bright colors which can make us happier and in a better mood. As we wait  for warmer weather and the happiness of the season, I have compiled a list of things you can do to prepare for spring and to get out of the winter blues mindset.


  1. Buy a bouquet of flowers and put them in a vase in your room.

Adding a fresh bouquet of flowers can increase your mood because of how bright and beautiful the flowers are. It can also be nice to take care of the flowers. If flowers are not your thing, try buying a succulent!

2. Add some new decor to your room that is brightly colored.

Incorporating some news posters or decor that is brightly colored into your room can get you in the spring mood. Seeing the bright colors can remind you of the colors and warm weather of spring.

3. Write a list of fun things you and your friends can do in the spring weather.

Making plans and thinking of fun things to do once the weather gets warm can make you excited for the start of spring. Maybe plan a hiking trip or go to a baseball game!

4. Exercise or take a walk outside once the weather starts to get a little bit nicer.

Taking a walk outside is great exercise and can help to clear your mind if you are stressed out. Once it gets a bit warmer it will also be nice to go outside and get some sun exposure.

5. Schedule yourself time in your busy schedule to take part in some spring cleaning.

Spring cleaning can be very good to get rid of germs and tidy up your room. It can also be very beneficial to take some heavy sweaters out of your wardrobe and add in your lighter spring sweaters and items of clothing.

6. Treat yourself to a new spring outfit from your favorite store.

Since the weather is going to get warmer and nicer, you may need a new t-shirt or dress in your wardrobe. That means it is time to treat yourself for all of the hard work you have been doing!


All of these small activities can change your mindset and make you ready for the warm spring air. So, take the time to get rid of those winter blues and engage in cheery activities to welcome the spring season! Let us know if you have any other ideas that help you get into the spring spirit.

How To Have A Fun Friday Night In

It is the middle of winter and for many of us that means we hate going outside into the cold. We often times get bored very easily and have nothing to do , but sit inside. Although sitting inside can be boring, there are ways to make it fun and a great way to spend your Friday night. Here is a list of activities to do inside to make your Friday nights fun and exciting.

  1. Hold a Netflix Movie or TV Marathon in Your Residence Hall Common Area or Your Room

If you are unsure of what to do Netflix has tons of movies and TV shows just waiting to be binge watched.  There are also many different varieties of movies so you can hold a scary movie night or a rom-com night to make you bawl your eyes out. My favorite movie on Netflix to watch with friends is To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before! This movie is so cute and is based on a book.

2. Try Out New Recipes From Pinterest With Your Friends

Pinterest is a gold mine for finding fun recipes to make with friends. All of the Suites have kitchens within the buildings, so it is very easy to go to the kitchen and bake with all of your friends while listening to music. It is a great bonding activity that produces a sweet treat!

3. Buy Canvases at a Craft Store and Paint Something You Like On It

Whenever I am bored, I personally like to do something crafty, but more often than not I paint.  Painting has many benefits including increasing creativity and it is a good way to relax after a long week. It is also very inexpensive compared to other activities. Here is a canvas I painted and a record I painted as well.


4. Do Something Crafty

By doing something crafty, this can mean drawing , a DIY project or something else of this sort. Last semester, I was really bored one night so I found an old jean jacket I had and I ironed patches on it and painted little designs on it to make it custom. All of my friends love that jacket and want to make one just like it. Here is a picture of the jacket!

5. Read a Book That You Have Been Wanting to Read

The weekends are a perfect time to catch up on the reading you have been meaning to do. This is a relaxing activity to do that can also result in many benefits.
