Spring Break is soon upon us and if you aren’t headed to a beach somewhere, you’re probably trying to come up with things to do to pass the time that aren’t homework or sleep. We can only take so many naps. Who wants to do all their class reading while their friends go skiing and the sun shines bright around them?
