Buffalo has the classic Dash Inn burger joint the Sheridan doesn't. Combine advice #2 and #6 together and grab a bite if you've never been there before. Have fun like seniors Gabrielle Golinvaux and Bailey Carlin.

March 28 came slow for students here at Sheridan High School. For those of you without mind-blowing, exciting trips planned for this Spring Break, there is still hope for you yet to make “Spring Break 2K16” one for the books. If you’re like me, you sometimes find yourself Googling “Things to do for cheap,” but let me save you the trouble and do that research for you.

 

  1. Relax

It’s Spring BREAK for a reason. Take a break.

 

  1. Go on a road trip

Even if it just means going to Buffalo, Wyo. or Billings MT. for the day, a road trip is a road trip.

 

  1. Have a movie marathon

You can never go wrong with watching the classics, catching up on the new blockbusters, or even watching an entire franchise.

 

  1. Go to a concert, play or comedian performance

Check out local or neighboring venues for events that interest you. Support our local WYO Theatre and stay updated on their schedule or check out events in Billings or Denver, CO.

 

  1. Spend time with your friends

Spend time with others who also don’t have huge plans for the week. Meet up with a good friend, old friend, or even make a new one!

 

  1. Try something new

This means try taking a class, go to a place you’ve never been in town, try a new workout routine, eat a new food, talk to new people, read a new book, play a new game, listen to new songs… ANYTHING.

 

  1. Go on a picnic

Grab a sandwich and a blanket and soak-up the crisp spring air. Spend this time to listen to the birds chirping, watching the sun shining and the green grass poking through the thawing ground.

 

  1. Make some “Spring-inspired” foods

If you’re not too sure where to start, Pinterest always has great ideas. Raspberry-mint lemonade and lemon bars are pretty spring-like, but get creative! Or just eat some ice cream.

 

  1. Go on a hike

It’s Spring, YAY! The weather is growing warmer; the snow is melting and so that means it’s time to break out those muddy hiking shoes that are waiting to be used again.

 

  1. Be nostalgic

Seniors: for many of you, this is your last year living at home with your parents and siblings. It’s like your last hoorah childhood. For the rest of the underclassmen, you only have a few years left, so take the time and be a kid because before you know it, it’s time to be an adult. Go outside, fly a kite, dance in the rain, jump in puddles, blow bubbles, color a picture, draw on the sidewalk with chalk…Anything that reminds you of your childhood, when life was simpler.

 

Just remember, you aren’t trying to recreate James Franco’s Spring Breakers, so enjoy your break and be safe!
