Winter break is a huge chunk of the year where you have all the time in the world to catch up on sleep and get ahead on all the productive things you needed to do all semester. It’s time to make some extra money, spend time with your family, get an internship, and all sorts of other productive activities. But despite our great efforts to do something more than watch Netflix, the results sometimes prove otherwise. Here are the expectations versus reality of what winter break will probably be like fot

Expectations:

Your brothers and sisters are so loving. They are always there for you. Xoxo.
