Soon winter will be over and we will be able to jump with joy. We can say goodbye to those freezing mornings and say hello to that bright shining sun. This year’s winter has brought one of the coldest days in twenty years. But now that spring is upon us there are five things you should do:
Find fresh tunes
A good playlist will always brighten your mood. When those tunes just hit the right spot, you feel revitalised and ready to take on uni. Create a playlist with all your favourite tunes so that while you are waiting for the 891 or trekking it from the Science Theatre to Sir John Clancy Auditorium you will feel re-energised after the cold winter.
Get a new wardrobe
Say goodbye to those puffy coats and bring out those breezy colourful clothes. Nothing says ‘New Sem, New Me’ like a new wardrobe. Stores will always have the new spring arrival clothing that will give you that edge so you can walk in style. Don’t forget those sunnies because you will need them.
Clean the pool
At the end of winter, pools can end up in one of two ways: either the water has turned to that sickening algae green or the pool is empty and the floor is covered with dirt and dust. Either way, you should clean that pool because spring doesn’t look like spring without a crystal clear blue pool.
Get hay fever medication and tissues
If you suffer from hay fever you should probably hoard a load of medication and tissues. Make sure your bags and pockets are stuffed with anti-histamines and tissues, just in case you get into a jam. If you’re really struggling, you might be able to find paper towels in the kitchens, but be warned some kitchen towels are basically sand paper.
Although the term ‘spring clean’ has American connotations, spare a day to cleanse your room/ apartment. Whip out that vacuum and rubber gloves because you may find those missing fuzzy socks under your bed or find that top you thought you lost. It might be hard to actually do but hey when all your textbook notes are no longer everywhere, you will thank me.
So move over winter because here comes spring.
