Things to do outdoors
Go for a nature walk in Point Pleasant Park, Victoria Park, or, really, any park
You can always count on Nova Scotia weather to have some winter days that almost feel like spring. If the weather is nice, why not head to a park and enjoy the fresh air? If you’re lucky, you’ll probably even spot some cute dogs and squirrels!
Go skating on the Oval and have a Beaver Tail
Have you really been to Halifax in the winter if you haven’t done this?
Go skiing at Martock or Wentworth
This activity requires a car, but it’s the best way to enjoy the snow!
Things to do Indoors
Flex your artistic muscles
Draw or paint a picture and then hang it on the wall to spruce up your room!
Have a crack at the book you’ve been meaning to read
Even Netflix can get old after hours of binge watching. This week is the perfect time to check some things off your to-read list.
Your place will smell delicious with the added bonus of a yummy snack at the end.
Go to the Seaport Market on Saturday morning
Delicious local foods and cute homemade gifts–what more can you ask for?
Have a board game night with your friends
Do it at home or at one of the local board game cafés any night of the week.
Go see a game
Show your Dal spirit and cheer on the Dal Tigers basketball and volleyball teams on Feb. 15, and basketball again on Feb. 16 at Dalplex. Downtown at the Scotiabank Centre, the Halifax Mooseheads are playing Feb. 20, 22, and 23, and the new Halifax Thunderbirds lacrosse team play on Feb. 15 and 21.
Get work done
Plan the rest of your semester
You’re halfway done! Take some time during the break to prepare yourself for what’s to come and make sure no assignments or finals sneak up on you.
Catch up on your class readings
It’ll hurt less now than when you have a bunch of other work piled up.
