“It’s only a week long so plans are to hang out with my mom because I haven’t seen her in awhile. Go shopping with my mom and eat good food because I want to take a break from Sam’s and like chill. I don’t really have set plans because there’s not much time to go somewhere or do much.”

“It’s been a pretty tough semester so far, so I’m gonna try to find time to relax and see people I don’t usually see. I’ve been looking for an internship this semester so I can be more prepared when I graduate because I’m supposed to be graduating next semester. So over spring break I have projects to work on.”

“For this spring break I will be working. I own a small business “Twisted by Camille”. I took the advantage of having this long break to work on my brand, work on my business, and gain some more clientele. Instead of spending money and going away, I’m deciding to stay here and save money.”
