The week after next week is spring break. What's your plan for that? Go out for fun or stay in home? Will you spend with friends or you want to be alone? I have three mid-terms right after the spring break, so I have to stay on campus and study...

Spring break? What is this 'Spring Break' that you speak of? I'm not off the week after next week or the week after that. Oh wait! All the other schools are! Well, I'm not getting a Spring Break because I might have decided to go to a private school on a weird system! lol I'm going to be doing my homework and studying while you're off on your Spring Break. So enjoy it and don't waste it, because there are students who don't have it! lol

It's not a country by country thing... it's a school and school district thing. Sometimes a state thing if the state is running the school. At least that's the way it is here in America. I don't technically get a "spring break". My year is divided into quarters instead of semesters. I do get a few days off come the end of the quarter... but it's not a "spring break". Oh well. I knew the system when I applied! lol

Actually I think spring break is not a common break for students, there are many country don't have this at all. But even as I have it, I still have to study, not playing... Sign

Hello marmot! Spring is not yet here in my country. It is our summer time. Almost everybody is perspiring everyday. So some are planning to go some places where there are beaches to splash on. Too bad you need to stay in your campus for the spring break! Better luck next spring break!

Yeah marmot, summer is approaching in my country. I live in a tropical country that is why it is different from yours. Summer really can bring a lot of fun. you can go to the beach or to the mountains for fresh air and other places. Though the weather forecast told us, it is a wet summer this year. so it is weird!

It's sorry when you can't go out with your friends in the spring break. I don't have this holiday. But if I have some days off working, I'll travel with my boyfriend and my friends or visiting my relatives.

Yeah, I like hanging out with my friends, I always spend my time with them. It is a very good experience when you have accompany around you. You can both offer and give. That's really a good feeling.

I am always looking forward to the spring break in our company. Every year we organize a spring travel in which every one will enjoy so much. Spring in China has come nearer and nearer, and everything is becoming green little by little. I love taking photos using my DSLR, so I love spring so much. But I suppose our spring break won't come until two months later. Have a nice time in your break.

In fact, many companies here I know will serve some funds for a spring travel, mostly in the weekend. We have it every year, for tree or two days in spring.

My spring break is right after my exams so i guess it will be great. But the other thing is we just have 2weeks off =( Anyway I'm planning on hanging around with my friends and family too. Actually I was thinking of going to the amusement park with my friends.

I always seem to end up doing my shopping on Spring break. This is usually when I celebrate my birthday and most people give me money so I ebnd up doing shopping for new, summer clothes. Where I live that's when it starts getting warmer and the snow melts so I'm in need of summer clothes. This year I'll probably work full-time on Spring break then shop!

In singapore, we do not have any spring or summer breaks because there's only either rainy or sunny season here. We don't have the priviledge of such long breaks except for school holidays. Though we ahve some occasional short breaks in between, they are mostly study breaks before exams. When it comes to long holiday breaks, i prefer to be alone because i will be seeing my friends in school so i don't want to see them again when i finally have the chance not to see them.
