The end of J-Term brings almost a week off from school. With several snowy days forecasted, check out these ideas to fill your relaxed days.

Read The Princess Bride by William Goldman.

The greatest love story in the world is also one of the greatest adventure stories ever told. William Goldman grew up loving the original story, told by S. Morgenstern, only to learn that the version he heard from his dad was so much simpler than the original. So, he decided to re-write the classic story to be the same way his dad told it to him – a beautiful tale of romance and adventure.

Listen to Most Girls by Hailee Steinfeld.

Steinfeld responds to the cliché phrase, “you’re not like most girls,” with this song about why she wants to be like them. The song has a catchy beat and lyrics that emphasize Steinfeld’s reasons why women should embrace being like “most girls.”

Watch Kim Possible.

Go back to the classics and enjoy a Kim Possible marathon. Balancing her world-saving job and high school is just what makes Kim relatable. It doesn’t matter if she can defeat the world’s smartest criminals, getting a date to the school dance still gives her butterflies. And who could forget her lovable friend, Ron Stoppable, and his naked mole rat, Rufus?

Watch The Prince of Egypt.

For a movie made by a secular studio, this stands as one of the best animated Christian movies out there. With beautiful animation styles, a musical score that makes you smile and a concise telling of the well-known Bible story, this movie is bound to give you all the feels. If you haven’t seen the movie before, it’s definitely worth checking out.

Go bowling.

Stay out of the snowy weather coming up by hitting the bowling lanes (and hopefully some pins too). Whether it’s with friends or family, bowling is a fun weekend activity. Not good at it? Try playing a round to see who can get the best score by throwing badly, or challenge your friends by seeing who can get the worst score.
