    Survey: How Are You Spending Your Winter Break?

    We’ve already talked all about your favorite things about Christmas and what your plans are for this year. But we know that Christmas itself—though totally exciting and wonderful—isn’t the only awesome thing happening this month. You’ve earned this time off from school because of your hard work all semester and by making it through finals!

    Now, you’ve gained a little R&R time mixed in with some fun holidays, which includes New Year’s Eve and the ushering in of a new year. We know you aren’t spending every day shopping and prepping for Christmas, so we wanted to give a little space for you to talk about what else you have going on during the break.

      10. What excites you most about returning to school? seeing my friends and basketball try-outs but i’m sad that my best friends are all in running club and if i make the basketball team i won’t see them that much cuz i don’t have any classes with them, but if i don’t make the basketball team then i will have wasted my parents money on new basketball shoes. Also, the day we get back from break we will be choosing new lunch seats that we have to keep for 9 weeks and i have no idea who i’m going to sit with because i have one best friend in my lunch hour but the rest of my friends probably already have other friends that their sitting with :,( so i basically don’t wanna go back to school
