A laundry list of what to do during your winter break


(Above: not shredding the gnar.)


So, the 2017 fall semester is coming to an end. Many of us call Chicago home, while a good group of UIC students think that they are from Chicago but are really from the suburbs (such as myself).

After spending about four months at UIC, it is definitely nice to take a break and come home for the holidays to spend time with family and friends. Winter break officially begins on December 16th, 2017 and ends on January 16th, 2018. You might have some apprehension regarding not knowing what to do during break.

As do I.

Because humans really like to read lists, I have compiled a few things that will hold you over until the spring semester.

1. Get a job, you lazy bum. I recommend the seasonal positions for Mobile Sales Consultants at Best Buy, Cart Attendants at Target, or even working for the Pavilion at UIC. Maybe even sign up to be a lifeguard at your local outdoor waterpark.

2. Go snowboarding and SHRED THE GNAR!!!

Chi-beria, Take Two


It’s only November and temperature are dropping like crazy right now. I thought we had enough of the cold this past winter, but looks like another year of warm jackets, high electricity bills and hot chocolate is going to hit us again 🙂


A lot of people have been getting sick because of this weather and I wanted to remind you guys to dress warmly! For those that dorm or have a small commute, it may seem like no big deal for wearing just a sweater, but you’ll end up regretting it the next day when you wake up with a cold.

As simple as that seems, by dressing warm it keeps you safe and helps avoid a trip to the doctor.

Even though the cold can prevent us from doing stuff that we normally like doing outside, now is a good chance to stay indoors, stay warm, and obviously catch up on those favorite TV shows. (Perhaps on How To Get Away With Murder and their season finale?) 😉

If TV isn’t your thing, Thanksgiving is coming up, now’s time to start preparing for that big Thanksgiving meal with family and friends!

Remember to stay warm guys!

Till next time,
