At the end of a long Fall Semester when our work is done and our classes complete, students often return to their hometowns for a long period of well-deserved hibernation. Others fill their break with fun activities like skiing, visiting friends and family, or catching up on all the TV they missed while studying. Regardless of how they plan to spend it, students are undoubtedly excited for Winter Break! The interns here in North Carolina State University’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions are no different, and we have awesome plans for the break as well! We will all be taking a break from blogging to enjoy winter break but blogs will be posted regularly again starting at the beginning of the spring semester. Don’t forget to check back!
After a long and arduous semester, I plan on doing nothing but relaxing during my winter break. I think I may spend a bit of time rock wall climbing with friends, because I haven’t done it in a while and I’m sure I improved since the last time I’ve done it. I’m also organizing a family event for my younger cousins and siblings called “Camp Cousins”, which will be filled with a bunch of fun little activities and outings for them to enjoy. I’m most excited to take the little ones to an indoor water park near my home in Concord (even if I can’t swim, watching them try will be enjoyable). Other than that, I have a few personal comic book projects that I want to finish writing and drawing, so I’ll probably do some of that too. I’ve also been missing a lot of Monday evening cartoons, so I think I’ll get caught back up on those as well. Oh, and I’ll be sleeping. I’ll be doing a LOT of sleeping.
For winter break I will be in Raleigh working on the calling campaign with Admissions up until December 21st. During Christmas I will be home with my family in North Raleigh and after Christmas I will be going to Gastonia for a Debutante Ball. Over New Years I plan to be at the beach with friends.
Hello blog readers! This winter break I will be working with Admissions until the 21st, then I will be off to the North Pole to ensure that Santa’s Sleigh is in tip top shape on the 24th. Once that task is complete I will be helping Dick Clark’s replacement in Times Square as his(or her) personal water boy. I’ve got a packed break, should be fun!
Wow I can’t believe Winter break is here already! I am super excited because Christmas is my most favorite time of the year. During the break I will be going back home to The Bahamas. Summer was the last time I was home so I am very eager to return. I’m hoping the weather is warm so that I can spend a good amount of my time lying on the beach. I also plan to catch up on sleep and enjoy home cooked meals from my mummy J. Season greetings to you all and I hope you have a great Winter break!
Words cannot describe how excited I am that break is finally here!! For the first few days, I will be disappearing off the face of the earth to catch up on sleep (I know, sounds a bit dramatic but let’s be real, it’s college). Reality is, I am not sure what I am doing for Christmas Day. I’ll either be in Asheville or Orlando but either way, I will be celebrating with family. After that (drumroll please), I will be off on a snowboarding adventure with some awesome friends from State! The week after that, my family is having a huge reunion so let’s just say, I am extremely excited about all of my holiday plans. It doesn’t get better than this! To get more updates on how my holiday break is going, just follow me on Twitter: @NCSU_brittney — oh and of course, GO PACK!!
Two days after my last final exam, my mom and I will be flying to Boston, MA for a short visit and some quality mother/daughter time. I don’t have too many exciting plans for this coming break after our trip to Boston, I will be moving home for next semester to complete my final internship in Richmond, VA. I will probably spend a large amount of time over break moving back into my room at home and readjusting to living away from Raleigh and my friends. Hopefully the break will be full of good food, sleep, and visiting with friends and family I haven’t seen in a while. I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable holiday season, see you in 2013!
Winter break is almost here. It’s about that time to head home and be with family, but there is always something I need to do to keep myself busy. Usually the Boys and Girls club near my house needs some help for a few days so I will volunteer when I can. Stay busy and Have a great break!
Winter break? More like GRE-Break. I will use the free time to focus on preparing myself to take the GRE (a standardized test that is required to apply to a Master’s program). It will be hard, especially considering I am Graduating on December 15th…
so it will be weird to be studying afterwards, especially with Christmas and New Year’s coming up and all the side effects of it (too much food, too much of a vacation feeling and too much family time). So studying for the GRE will be particularly challenging, but I expect my commitment to be strong. I wish you all a very good Winter break, and hopefully you will receive good news from NC State right before the holidays!
Winter break is one of the few times during the year I get to go home. Other than spending time with family and friends, I will be volunteering at a middle school in my hometown. This will be my second time visiting this middle school to tutor the children and get them started thinking about college. This has been a very eventful semester for me and I am excited to share my accomplishments and to see their progress in school.
I’m so excited to be spending the holiday break wearing colorful sweaters and working at the mall! I love the decorations and frazzled shoppers. Santa’s there nearly all the time, too! Nothing says “Christmas” like a mall pretzel!
Winter Break is a time of family bonding, holiday shopping, house decorating, random visits from long lost relatives, last minute scholarship applications, NO CLASSES, and pure joy and happiness—at least for me it is! This wonderful winter break I will not only survive December 21st, 2012 but I will get to visit my sorority sisters down in PEMBROKE for Secret Santa! Utterly excited for my sisterhood bonding! But it is not all fun and games! I will dedicate a majority of time applying for scholarships (,because I will never turn down free money), securing my internship for this summer, and planning for upcoming events for my student organizations (Spring 2013 is going to memorable for sure). I can not wait to see what occurs over the course of Winter Break 2012!
This break could not come any sooner. Not only is it a break from constant course work for me, but its a chance for my friends and I to just sit back and enjoy where we’ve been and how far we’ve come. My group has a camping and hunting trip planned, we also want to spend some time around the bonfire (like we used to do in high school), and just catch up with each other. If you went to Wakefield High School, you’d know the Starbucks tradition: for the most part on any average night you could drive up to the Starbucks up the street from school and see about 20 kids just hanging out there, drinking coffee, conversing, or playing cards. On breaks from school when everyone comes home, we like to reignite that tradition and just waste time together.
Well, there you have it! The NCSU Undergraduate Admissions Interns have a lot of plans for the break. Though we will miss this beautiful campus, as well as the wonderful people who inhabit it, it’s time to kick back, relax, and recharge!
