10 Things To Do When Your Friends Leave Town for Winter Break

Madeleine Neuburger

1)    Find the most eccentric member of your family and make them your new best friend.

2)    Finally check out your local tourist attractions (for example: Alcatraz, cable cars, Coit Tower, etc.)

3)    Girls: Review Spring 2010’s upcoming trends

4)    Boys: Review the football teams capable of making it to the Superbowl

5)    Catch up on all the movies and TV that you missed while you were studying for tests and doing homework

6)    Befriend the random classmates who have also been abandoned over winter break and found an exclusive club called the “Left Overs”.

7)    A. Volunteer/ find a job at a preschool or day care center

B. Formulate a mutant army of runny nosed toddlers to do your bidding

C. Reverse all that they’ve been taught (Ex: “Sharing is not the answer.”)

D. Leave the job with some more self-confidence, leadership skills, and maybe some pocket money.

8)    Create a harmlessly misleading Facebook account under the name of a toy or fictional character (Ex: Malibu Barbie or Oscar the Grouch)

9)    Build an amazing treehouse. Alone.

10) Beat the video game that all your friend’s haven’t been able to complete. When they return don’t tell them the secrets to beating the game.
