If you’re anything like me, you’ve seen the numerous films advertising the grandiose spring break lifestyle and said to yourself, “I should totally do that.” This was probably followed up quickly by a look at your bank account and the realization that you can’t live the caviar-and-champagne week-long dream on $30 and some odd change. If so, this list is for you.

1. Binge-watch a TV show

Can’t find a way to get to the beach this break? Craving the sun? How about a Snuggie, ignoring your family and watching all seven seasons of “Mad Men” in your underwear? Far more doable, I’d say.

2. File your taxes

Did you know that you can file your taxes before April 15? Yes, it’s possible to be a golden example of a fine citizen, and you can avoid getting audited. Man, oh boy, is that a one-two punch!

3. Go to the bar if you’re legal

Nothing beats going back home and checking out all those kids who peaked in high school and make the bar their second home. Frank from high school? You haven’t changed a bit!

4. Put off your semester-long assignments like any other week

You’ve been doing it so well for the last seven weeks, why not put it off again? Due at the end of the semester means to do it at the end, right? What was that? Netflix has multiple new series coming out? That’s far more interesting than my micro-economics project!

5. Schedule all those doctors appointments you keep putting off

Did you know that dentists advise you make an appointment every six months? Can’t remember the last time you went to the doctor? Well, no worries, because that’s what spring break is for. Be prepared for three solids days filled with every conceivable medical test that you’ve put off until now.
