Top 10 Spring Break Activities

Not sure how to occupy yourself this spring break? Here's KW's top 10 ways to squeeze the most fun out of your vacation!

#10. Hit the Slopes!

Spring break is the perfect time to go skiing or boarding with friends at your local mountain before the season ends and you're waiting 'til next winter rolls around.

#9. Head Out Into the Community

Check out what's happening at your community center during spring break. From dances to sports, it's the place to be. Many community centers have schedules you can pick up ahead of time telling you all about the events planned for that month. Sign up for classes early as they often get filled up. Plus, they'll usually have some cool volunteer opportunities that you might wanna add to your resume.

#8. Get Wet

There's got to be a a public swimming pool around town somewhere. It may not be Mexico, but it's not half bad. Brush up on your backstroke, your butterfly and your front crawl. Lounge around in the hot tub and go for a spin on the slide.

#7. Inside Fun

Spend a day at the museum, planetarium or even a space center. Learn not only about the sun, moon and stars, but also about communication satellites, space shuttles and astronaut missions. Check out www.nasa.gov for info on space centers around the world.

#6. Get Crafty

Plan a crafts day. Drag out the paint, glue and glitter and get as messy as you want. Make picture frames, jewelry or anything else your heart desires.

#5. Think Retro

Forget rollerblading - slap on a pair of roller skates and cruise. You know, those old-skool skates that you can actually control. For info on where you can find the closest skating rink, go to www.rollerskating.org.

#4. Catch a Flick

Go and catch one of the latest movies. Whether it's The Spiderwick Chronicles, Be Kind, Rewind, or 27 Dresses, spring break is a great time to head to the theater and catch a cheap matinee.

#3. Have a Gaming Party

Invite your friends over for a video game tournament. Assign teams, create team names and be sure to have a prize for the winners.

#2. Be a Mallrat

Have a girl's day at the mall. Try on tons of clothes and check out all the latest beauty products - some places even give free make-overs. If you're cash-strapped, head to your local thrift shop and amaze your friends with your cheap finds.

#1. Sleepover

PJ parties still rock the house! Get ready for popcorn, DVDs, pillow fights and lots of gossip. No matter what age you are, sleepovers are always a hit!

No matter how fancy a school is, there will be behaviour problems. Homework can be left to the last minute depending on how tactile you are, after the first few months you'll want to disappear unless you become popular but hang in there! Also, there are three types of people at Middle School or Secondary School:The cacti-The cacti are people who seem hard on the outside [we all have to be in Middle School] but are really lovely and soft if you get to know them. Some cacti can be pricks [no pun intended] but most are nice enough people so a cacti is probably an ideal friend at Middle School.The rocks-AVOID AT ALL COSTS! These are the people who are completely tough and are often bullies. It often seems like they have no emotions because they don't. They are sociopaths and must be avoided. But they are often popular jock kids.The marshmallows-These guys are pretty good, they're soft all the way through and get along well with most people and mostly abide by the rules. They can be hurt easily and roasted because they're so soft. Marshmallows are often smart and get along well with teachers as a result. The only flaw with marshmallows is that some have the tendency to rub their good grades in your face and make you feel insecure but they're nice people mostly.Oh and we can also get cacti rocks and spiky marshmallows.Hope I helped  Teachers are never the enemy!! They're there to help you. They can be a very valuable resource and it is so very important to collaborate with them to make the most of your learning experience!  If you put off a cold attitude and don't speak to people, they're more than likely going to assume you're stuck up and that can make the experience a lot worse than it has to be. Smile, be kind, and if there's someone picking on you, tell a teacher or other staff member, and try to stay out of their path. (I know from experience being an "outsider", it's better not to make yourself a quiet target). im nervous about starting high school.  middle school was alot of fun but you do get alot of classwork and homework. i couldnt have said it any better like you did kirsteeeen.   [s:p/zxl]

Doctors might be the more ethical choice, but honestly I think a lot of celebrities do deserve high salaries considering the scrutiny, lack of privacy, and judgement they go through. They're human too, and their lives are turned upside down once they become part of the spotlight.  Both are respectable careers, in their own ways, and I think that certain positions in the medical profession should get a raise.
