8 Things to Do Over the Last Days of College Break

8 Things to Do Over the Last Days of College Break

By Scott Greenstone

“I’m a college kid now,” you think as you get out of bed at 2:30 P.M. and slither down the stairs to a bowl of whatever you other adults eat (not Chex, that’s for sure). Your parents don’t tell you what to do, but they’re probably ready for you to head back to the dorms…and you don’t know what to do with the rest of your break.

Well, you should ask your doctor if getting off your butt is right for you, because if it is, here’s what you can do in your last few days of break.

-Make a mockumentary: The War of the Worlds. Monty Python’s Flying Circus. The Office. What do these have in common? They all pretended at some point that they were documenting reality. Mockumentaries are easy, cheap, and fun. Get some friends or some bums together and make it into a project. Make a mockumentary about a midget who wrestles pygmy crocodiles for a living. Make one about a war between a tribe of pygmies and a tribe of midgets. Make one about a midget who thinks he’s a pygmy. (The point being, you don’t have to go big or go home. You can go small and still make great entertainment.)

-Design the costume you’re going to wear to The Dark Knight Rises premiere: And make it something original. There are going to be twenty other Commissioner Gordons there, I promise you. Do somebody obscure, like the Joker’s dentist.

-Pirate The Avengers and send it to me!

-Create a masterpiece by melting crayons. No, I’m serious. It looks really cool!

-Brush up on your George of the Jungle impression. You were so good at that in 3rd grade, man.

-Learn another language! Did you know Rosetta Stone is giving out free trials? There’s no better time to pick up Tagalog than now.

-Play an awesome game. You know that $25 iTunes gift card that you accidentally redeemed on the App Store? Well, instead of getting Jason Castro, you can play Braid, a game that will change your life forever.

-Write for SparkLife about what you did. And send it to contribute@sparklife.com.
