This week and next many people are enjoying Spring Break (I’m talking to you Mom). A nice little extended vacation situated around the Easter holiday. Today I’d like to take a trip down memory lane to spring breaks of the past…

When I was little Spring Break meant no school, Easter baskets, and day trips with the fam. In college Spring Break took on a whole other identity– girls gone wild and such. My brother did the whole “beach in Florida with frat brothers” thing one year. I like to believe he behaved himself and they were all perfect gentlemen.

As for me, my spring breaks were about as tame as could be.

My first college spring break and how did I  spend it?

Yes I’m a nerd. I like science and animals and oceans. The end.

Easter was spent dying eggs in my dorm room with my friend Angela.

While some coeds were tanning-it-up on the beaches of Florida, this was my view in New York:

I did get to see my brother in the High School’s Spring Musical, Into The Woods.

Another year, another Aquarium. This time Mystic Aquarium Connecticut. I really know how to live it up, huh?

As you can see, no booze, no bikinis….not my style. I should have gotten this shirt to commemorate:

Even though I didn’t have what most people consider the “traditional” college Spring Break experience, they were fun for me. I got to spend time with my family who was otherwise 5 hours away, reconnect with friends, and take trips to see things I was interested in. That’s more my speed.
