How good are school holidays? 2 whole weeks of fun, zero responsibilities and time to catch up on sleep – hooray! But the best school holidays are ones when you actually achieve something, you don’t want to go back to school and people ask you what you got up to and because the days rolled into one you can’t even remember, so it’s time to make a holiday plan of attack, make memories and make these school holidays your best yet!
Here are my top ideas to keep you busy and fulfilled these school holidays!
Start a short course or master a hobby
There is no time like the present to brush up on your skills in something you love doing and learning about or alternatively spend more time on a hobby you haven’t had the time to do or have been putting off. There are so many options for online courses which could see you mastering the art of Photoshop or dabbling in Interior Design, whatever you would like to learn about there is a course out there to suit you so use the holidays to your advantage and further your skills!
Jump online and check out what is happening in your city
There are loads of school holiday activities happening all over Australia you just have to know where to find them! Jump on google and have a look see and what is happening in your city, if you are a foodie or just like random adventures then there are some great blogs like Concrete Playground
and The Urban List
where you can search your city and see what’s happening while you’re off on school holidays.
Head to the cinemas, buy a large popcorn and frozen coke and live a little
When I just want to zone out the movies are my go-to, there are a few good movies already out and more coming the April like Avengers: Infinity War with Robert Downey JR, Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson or I Feel Pretty by Amy Schumer. Actually, you have so much time off, why choose? Go and see them both!
Head off on a staycation
Grab your buddies and go and stay overnight somewhere cool, you could camp, stay in a hotel or even just crash at each other’s places for the weekend. It’s the perfect time to hang with your friends, let some steam off and chat about life in general. I’m not calling it a sleep over because we aren’t 7 years old but you get gist, it’s just a whole lot of fun.
Netflix til your little hearts content
Been meaning to catch up on the newesy season of Riverdale? Ahhh yeah. Then this is the perfect time to binge watch your ALL your favourite series with zero guilt. And while we are on the subject, do yourself a favour and check out The Defiant Ones
if you haven’t already, it is so epic, it tells of the unbreakable bond of trust and friendship between music legends Jimmy Lovine and Dr. Dre, two street-smart men from different worlds who together defied traditional wisdom and transformed contemporary culture in the process. There are also guest interviews by everyone from Eminem to Bruce Springsteen. It’s actually one of the best series I’ve seen in the last few years. Thank me later!!!
