Waking up is probably something you do not want to do on your snow day. But in order to stay on top of your game you should! Your snow days should be used as catch up days. Sleeping in may sound like a good idea, but here are five productive activities to do on your snow day:
1. Don’t Wait Until Deadlines I am sure you have more than a few upcoming deadlines with essays, assignments, and projects. It would be smart to wake up as if you have class and begin to work on those things. Getting them done early will relieve stress and make way for you to get ahead on other assignments.
2. Reasearch Your Career Whether you are declared or not, it is important to do research on your career. Learn about the trends and resent topics going on in your field. Read blogs from people in your profession (or desired profession). Even if you are already in your desired profession, it is still important to be “in the know”!
3. Update and Evaluate Your Resume Review your resume and make sure it is up to date. Add all your recent projects and internships and make your resume stand out. Update any new information, i.e. email address, phone number, etc.
4. Update Your Social Media Sites Just like your resume, make sure all the information is up to date. Spice up your bio and also add things you are working on. Network with others in your desired profession or your peers.
5. Write A Blog Tell your peers about something you have read or seen. Doing these things are great conversation starters. And also a way to share your ideas.
Now that you have seen what I like to do on my snow day’s, what are some things you like to do?
