Listen, you survived Winter Break and that was a month long – so Spring Break will be a breeze!
If you’re going home this Spring Break (instead of on an alcohol-driven beach trip) first of all, I’m sorry. That sucks. Besides that, you have the potential to run into your ex from your hometown. Which also sucks.
In my hometown, there are two places you want to avoid if you don’t want to run into anyone you went to high school with/ dated/ hate/ etc. Oddly enough, these two places are the bank and the grocery store. So if I have any active advice, don’t go to these two places.
Besides that basically useless advice (because everyone needs to run errands when they’re home) here are some things to keep in mind:
You’re over it! You’ve been having the time of your life at school and haven’t even thought about the dumb ass girl/guy that broke your heart! Just because you ran into them at McDonald’s and they recently got a hair cut that makes them pretty attractive, doesn’t mean they’re not the same dumb ass.
Keep calm! If you do run into them, be casual. Don’t open up a conversation that will keep you up at night. Say your hello’s and then say your goodbye’s.
Don’t worry! You’ll be back at school in no time. Dress as if at any moment you’ll be running into your ex and you’ll be fine.
Have a great Spring Break and be safe!
