In the past few weeks there has been nothing I’ve wanted more than for winter break to come sooner. Now that it is merely a week away, I can be sure that it will be worth getting through the dreaded finals week to have a month of relaxation at my fingertips.

But what happens when relaxation turns to boredom? It’s inevitable that many students may find that they don’t know what to do with their free time, as we are not used to having any. Also, your hometown may be missing the hustle and bustle that you’ve grown accustom to in this college town.

As always, I am here to offer many a solution to you with this list of 50 things to do when you’re bored over break.

  • Have a backwards day, as in wake up and eat dessert, then dinner, see a movie, have lunch, take a shower, then eat breakfast
  • Go ‘window shopping’ at one of the most expensive stores in town. Dress up before hand to make it look like you belong there
  • Try to climb through your entire house without touching the floor, i.e. jumping from furniture to furniture
  • Stalk people on Google Earth
  • Build a fort , eat mac n’ cheese and watch an old Disney movie inside
  • Read a book in a language you barely speak
  • Make noodle art, but not in the traditional way – when noodles are cooked properly they will stick to the wall, so cook some noodles and throw them all on the wall in an artistic manner
  • Play humans vs. zombies, but don’t tell the neighbors why you just shot them with a Nerf gun
  • Have someone lock all the windows and doors and attempt to break-in to your own home
  • Learn how to moonwalk
  • Buy some moonboots (Yes, their back!!!)
  • Make up crazy stories to put as your Facebook status and wait for hilarious comments to appear
  • Try to make an object explode with mind power
  • Buy an unusual pet, like a hedgehog or a tiger
  • Check out Craigslist’s missed connections
  • Create your own TV series and post a video on YouTube each week
  • Time  how long you can hold a note
  • Time how long you can hold your breath
  • Try not to think about penguins – this gets tricky because in trying to not think about them you will inevitably be thinking about them
  • Be a pirate for a day
  • Perfect your Wookie noise
  • Make a smoothie out of everything in your fridge and try to sell it at your neighbor kid’s lemonade/hot cocoa stand
  • Try to run as fast as cars
