Things to Do Over Winter Break

We're still in Winter Break territory, in fact I'll be on break until January 17th. With the break comes a lot of spare time and while I'm not 100% sure what to do with all the time (I'm not really used to having a lot), I had to come up with a few things to do.

Netflix, netflix, netflix: Almost quite literally this is what I have been doing at one of my jobs, and at home. My boyfriend is a film major, so he most definitely has a list of movies/shows for me to watch. Needless to say we spend a lot of time on Netflix and just watching shows/movies. 

Cleaning Out My Closet: It's part of my Winter Cleaning (kind of like spring cleaning, but more in depth really; but more on that later). I usually get a few new clothes and books and things for Christmas, so when I do I try and replace items, one new item for one old item. I've got a bunch of things that I don't think I'll wear in the next year/haven't worn in a long time so it's perfect for me to donate to the less fortunate. 

[disclaimer, this is not my closet (you'll see that soon)]

Craft Time: I have two little sisters (sorority little sisters, they're my babies pretty much and I love them with all my heart), and I see a lot of crafts that are perfect presents, random gifts for them (and my family). I get a lot of my inspiration from Pinterest. 
Read, read, read: I'm an avid reader (hello History major and English Minor) but I like reading books that have nothing to do with my school work. During the school year it's hard to find time for me to read all the books I'd like so the breaks are a perfect time for me.

Baking: I'm a good baker, and for Christmas this past year I decided to make all of my friends four different types of homemade cookies. They all actually came out really well and my friends enjoyed them a lot. It wasn't a lot but it was definitely something I enjoyed doing.
