Do’s and Don’ts on Spring Break
DON’T break yo’self, fool! That goes for your physical body of course, but right now we’re talking about breaking your bank account.
DON’T Put yourself or your friends in compromising positions via pictures. It’s easy to forget that a hilarious post about or picture of your friend could cause them a lot of trouble.
DON’T Leave ANY of your belongings with a friend. They could totally forget about it so always keep your phone, wallet, and other accesssories by your side.
DO Something different!
DO Be safe!
DO Use sunblock! I don’t care what color you are or how gorgeous you want your tan to be, UVA and UVB rays give everyone cancer. Sorry to be a party pooper — this is a survival guide, after all, and long-term damage counts!
DO Enjoy the moment — and preferably not through any sort of lens. This is a perfect opportunity to relax, have fun and be spontaneous. There is only one Spring Break 2016,, and you get to spend it on a gorgeous beach surrounded by friends and potential friends-to-be. This is the time to soak it all in as it comes. So enjoy yourself.

Hold up. Pretty sure we have been waiting for this day since we were old enough to say "Filet-O-Fish." Brace yourselves, McDonald fans. Your favorite chain is working on a hardcore rewards program for all you loyal Big Mac lovers. It looks like the company has high hopes for the program, meaning you should too. Forbes notes, Mike Andres, President of McDonald's USA said, "We're working on a customer-designed loyalty program that we think will be as good as there is out there in the marketplace." Um, already sold. The article also notes the program should be rolling out either later this year or at the start of 2017. The program looks like it might work on a point system, with customers points expiring after a certain time. That way you'll never slack off on your trips to the drive-through. Pure brilliance on their part if you ask us. We didn't really need another reason to go to McDonald's (as they had us at all-day hash browns) but this program definitely doesn't hurt.
