Things to look forward to between now and summer

It's the little things that will make the weeks fly by!

It’s around this time of year that Summer seems so close but yet so far…If you’re in an exam year all chat seems to turn to the JC or LC and if you’re not, the homework and tests just seem to pile up.

It can be easy to get stuck in a little bit of a rut with school and your routine and especially since the pandemic, it can be hard to make plans to look forward to, for fear of them being cancelled.

But having something to look forward to is so important in day-to-day life. It doesn’t have to be a major holiday or big party, it can be as simple as your bubble bath in the evening and dedicating time to your favourite YouTubers after your homework.

If you’re feeling a little bit stuck in the same old routine, we wanted to give you some simple things that you can look forward to, that are ACTUALLY going to happen.

Longer days

Yep, an obvious one we know, but it’s true! We are already seeing a ✨grand stretch in the evenings✨ and that is only going to continue!

If you’re coming out of school and study to some brightness now, think about a month from now and how much later it will be bright for. There’s so much more opportunity to enjoy the evening when it doesn’t feel like nighttime.

Easter break

Another thing to look forward to, that happens every year, is the easter holidays! They are fast approaching and present two weeks of school free bliss. School is great and all but we all deserve a break. By then we are expecting better weather (hopefully), brighter days and a lot of chocolate to munch on.

Plan some dates with your friends, walks, chats , sleepovers and don’t forget to pencil in some well deserved you time. Pamper sessions, catching up on your fave shows and taking the time to do the things you enjoy!

There’s nothing like coming home from school and having a brand new episode of your favourite show to sink your teeth into. We are expecting a new season of Bridgerton in March and The Kardashians in April (hopefully). As well as the opportunity to discover new shows you’ve not seen before, ask your friends for recommendations and find a new binge worthy obsession.

The cinema can be so underrated sometimes. We don’t go often enough! Between now and June we are buzzing for the release of…

  • Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore
  • Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness
  • Downton Abbey: A New Era
  • Sonic The Hedgehog 2

And that’s just to name a few! If you have a film you can’t wait to see, book your tickets early and make a date of seeing it with your besties.

It’s always nice to have little milestones to look forward to so pop a few of these into your calendar and you’ll feel the school weeks break up way more once you’ve little moments of excitement between them.
