The snowpocalypse has come my dear readers.
Snow days are the gem of all school holidays. Unexpected and highly anticipated when rumors of a storm blow in, these breaks are what we live for. Sadly, these massive snow storms only happen once and a while, but when they do, it's like the whole city shuts down just for a short lived twenty four hours. Snow days don't come often enough, so when they do I suggest making the most of them. While you're all snowed in and enjoying your time off, I've come up with a list of things to do to make sure the day doesn't go to waste.
1. Stock up on food.
Sure, you can take this on like a responsible adult and get your bottled water and batteries, but I suggest getting a massive stockpile of your favorite comfort foods. Get the cookies, and the soups, and the popcorn bags and prepare yourself for a day surrounded by your favorite snacks because...
2. It's a movie day.
Snow days are perfect for catching up on all the movies you never have time to watch because life is always getting in the way. Rent a redbox, purchase a Netflix account, figure out how your on demand works. I really don't care, just find access to an unlimited source of movie heaven and enjoy.
3. Sleep in.
You've got absolutely nowhere to be, and I can guarantee you won't be going anywhere for awhile. Shut off those 6:00am alarms and stay in your pajamas. It's not every Tuesday that you can tell the alarm clock to shove it. Don't even bother putting on real pants, who's gonna see them? Your dog? It's all about comfort, and there will be no short cuts taken.
4.Spend some time with the people around you.
You've got food, movies, and jammies on. There is no better place to be than together on snow days. Everyone pick a favorite spot on the couch and settle in, because you're gonna be there for awhile. Enjoy eachother's company, too often everyone has somewhere else to be, except this one day, because you're all trapped in the same house, make the most of it.
5. Just enjoy it.
Put a pause on life outside. Who cares about work emails, who cares about your project due next week. Take one day off and I promise it won't kill you. It's good to take a day for you every once and awhile, besides you're pretty much forced to stay home, so revel in that.
Snow days don't come often enough, but I can tell you I've cleared my schedule for the next 48 hours to do all those things. Feel free to comment your favorite way to spend snow day. Stay warm everybody!
