Signs that you have Pre-Spring Break Syndrome (PSBS) and require Spring Break:
1. It's hard to get out of bed
For some reason your body is almost heavier in the morning. Your body seems determined to stay on your crappy dorm mattress instead of hopping up to get ready for that obnoxious morning class. If you can't get up as easily, you probably have PSBS.
2. Permanent Dark Circles
No matter what you do, those dark circles under your eyes will not go away! If makeup can no longer cover up the bags under your eyes, you probably have PSBS.
3. You are this close to killing your roommate (even though you are best friends)
If you are suddenly irritated by everything that your roommate does, or anyone else for that matter, you probably have PSBS.
4. You suddenly don't care at all about homework
You are beyond sick of homework. All the teachers are relentless and want you to do work over break. If you are calculating how little you can do in order to pass, you probably have PSBS.
5. You started packing early
You usually don't pack until the night before, but you suddenly felt the urge to pack a few days ahead. If you already have your suitcase halfway full, you probably have PSBS.
6. All you want is a home cooked meal
If you miss your mom's cooking more than ever, and will take burnt grilled cheese over campus food, you probably have PSBS.
PSBS is not a fatal disease, but should be treated as soon as possible nevertheless. Spring Break is not for everyone. It can cause laziness, weight gain, and a related disorder called Too Much Netflix which can cause symptoms like insomnia, bleary eyes, red marks on your thighs, and depression after withdrawal Talk to your doctor about PSBS to make sure that Spring Break is the right choice for you. If you are on tour for Co-choir, staying at college, or hate home with a passion, Spring Break is not for you.

Just to clarify: PSBS is not a real disorder and should not be treated as such. Don't get me in trouble people!
