What to do during Harvard's Winter Break: The Casual "Stay-at-home-and-Netflix"

I'll be the first to stand up and admit that any time I have a break, I pull up Netflix on my browser. It's even an app on my phone, and with the addition of ALL SEASONS OF my all-time favorite show Friends on the entertainment hosting site, I'm the happiest I've ever been (though my spring semester grades won't thank me come the full swing of classes). 

You may not think of Harvard students as being the types to just lounge around, but let me be the first to assure you that: YES, the majority of us loves to lay in our beds with our laptops propped up by a pillow in the throes of a Netflix-binge sesh (snacks are a must). I'm unashamed to say that days can go by without me noticing... ok, maybe I'm a little ashamed.



But really, I'm being absolutely serious! Today, we were doing class introductions in a circle for one of my Engineering Science classes (called Design Survivor, all about how to determine what is desirable in today's market), and honestly, 50% of the students said they were chillin' at home, cuddling, reading, hanging out with their family -- the most mundane, but honestly the most enjoyable activities.

So yes, we stay at home. And yes, that's perfectly acceptable--even noble. You don't have to be moving at 160 mph all the time to be successful. Sometimes, its nice to sit down and enjoy your cup of coffee and take a breather.
