We take a light-hearted look at what students usually do during their breaks.

Aside from lunch breaks, free time in between class and the end of school, students usually look forward to the holidays.

With no schoolwork and annoying classmates to deal with, the holidays are a good excuse for us to kick back and relax, right?

Probably, it is not the case for some—here are six types of students you might find during school holidays.

1. The diligent muggers

We may not have any deadlines to deal with during the holidays, but we sure have to complete our holiday homework.

These studious students tend to tackle their assignments almost immediately, wasting no time.

You can also expect these muggers to revise for their upcoming common tests or pop quizzes. (They simply cannot catch a break, can they?)

2. The busy workers

Some students see these long breaks as a golden opportunity to earn extra pocket money by taking up part-time jobs or holiday internships.

While others are resting at home, they are gaining new experiences and picking up useful skills at work.

Fret not, they are not always that busy. You might find them partying during their off days, celebrating their hard-earned paychecks.

3. The wanderlust travellers

These students tend to save every penny of their pocket money to spend it on a short getaway to neighbouring countries like Malaysia and Thailand. If they have deeper pockets, you might find them traipsing in exotic locations like Europe or America.
These travellers also have the innate ability to make you envious through their Instagram posts, leaving you to suck your thumb for not buying a ticket out of the country.

4. The happy campers

I often struggle to fathom why some people willingly return to school and spend their precious free time preparing for camps. Do you not want to spend it at lazying home instead?

After hearing several accounts from my friends, it dawned on me that these school camps are like their second home. Being involved in a camp committee and preparing for the camp’s various activities with your friends could be a meaningful way to spend the holidays, no?

5. The hardcore gamers

They have not lost their child-like excitement for games. When school is out, they take off to catch up on their games, such as League of Legends (LOL) and Defence of the Ancients (DOTA).

You might find these gamers behind a console, a laptop at home or at a LAN shop, spending long hours pitting their skills against other people on the Internet.

6. The lazy bummers

This group’s primary aim for the holidays is to relax and unwind. They often let their holidays take its natural course.

They do not fuss about creating holiday plans, choosing to stay at home all day instead. This leaves them to do whatever they want at their own leisure.
