College To Do List Week 6: Make plans with friends
The holidays are a great time to spend with family, but the free time from college can also offer you some time to spend with friends (without all that exam stress hanging over you).
I travel a lot during the college semesters, but like you in the winter time I get a little break. In addition to spending time reading and planning for next year, I also try to spend as much time with friends as possible.
And it's wonderful.
But, as I'm sure you already know, as you get older more effort is required to hang out with friends. Schedules get busy and thus plans (ahead of time) have to be made.
So today my charge to you is to not sit around waiting for someone to ask you to hang out. Be proactive, and start making plans with people you enjoy spending time with.
Don't worry if everyone can't always hang out - keep asking until some plans are made. I'm sure you already know what would be fun to you, but here are some ideas:
Holiday events in your community
Bake/cook at your place
See a play
Play a sport
Sign up for a 5K and train with friends
Do Christmas shopping together
Have a wrapping party
Volunteer with a non-profit
So pick an activity and text a friend. Then laugh and enjoy this study-free time for all it's worth.
