Top 5 Things To Do During Easter Break | CityBlock

Easter break is a time to chill out and relax before you go back to the normality of being a student. Not sure what to fill your time with? Don’t worry! We’ve come up with a few things you could do while you’re away.

#1 – Uni Work

Sorry, we had to give this one a mention. We know you don’t want to have to think about your uni work while you’re relaxing, but you might as well use this time to make at least a little bit of a dent in your workload! Trust us, you’ll thank us later when you get back to University and can go out with your mates rather than trying to cram in a load of last minute revision!

#2 – Start a New Series

If there’s one thing that we love about student life, it’s the fact that nobody can judge you for the amount of time you spend watching Netflix. In fact, the more you watch, the more your peers will admire you… true story. Why not use this time to start that series that you’ve been dying to watch? Need some suggestions? Here’s our top 5:

How To Get Away With Murder

1 Season

It’s like House if House were a lawyer. Expect plenty of gasp-out-loud moments!

The Big Bang Theory

8 Seasons

If you want something to watch and not think too much, this smart sit-com is perfect!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

7 Seasons

If you’re looking for nostalgia, this classic 90s show is perfect!

American Horror Story

4 Seasons

Be warned, you may be in for some sleepless nights after watching this show!


5 Seasons

This Community College based comedy will make you feel a lot better about exam stress!

#3 – Indulge!

Hopefully, some elderly relatives have taken pity on you and bought you an abundance of Easter eggs. If you have any left… why? Seriously, this is a time to indulge before you have to go back to everyday student life.

#4 – Cook For Your Parents

Show your parents just how well you’re coping without their home-cooked meals and freshly folded laundry by cooking them a delicious meal. While you’re off having the time of your life at university, your parents are probably sat at home worrying about your vitamin intake… probably. So, put their minds at ease by showing off your cooking skills. Don’t know what to cook? Find a recipe here!
