Now that winter break is over, students at Leesville Road High School are in a frenzy to finalize their spring break plans.

For the exclusive, popular friend groups at Leesville, this can be a stress inducing time — they have to coordinate with all the other popular friend groups in order to have the best spring break possible. 

With such an important task on their hands, these friend groups must create a system to make everything go smoothly. 

“We made a group chat with representatives from each friend group attending our spring break vacation,” said Morgan Lane. “If you have too many people in a group chat it is hard to agree on things. I like this system because I always get what I want.”

Abigail Smith, who is in Morgan Lane’s friend group, felt frustrated with this system. 

“I’m not involved with any of the decision making, which is unfair,” said Smith. “I never know what the plan is and I don’t like the choices they are making.” 

“We decided to go to Emerald Isle, and now all of the representatives will go back and tell their friend groups where we’re going,” said Lane. “Luckily, when people get mad that we’re going there, they will fight in their friend group chat — not the one that makes the decisions.”

“I can’t believe we’re going to Emerald Isle,” said Smith. “We have gone there the past three years for spring break.”

After the representatives choose the location and ensure they can rent multiple houses next to each other, they have to find the best parent to chaperone the trip.

“We have to have at least one parent there so that everyone’s parents allow them to go,” said Lane. “We have to find the parents that will let us party though.” 

After talking to more students attending this trip, I used all of the information to create a potential itinerary for the spring breakers.

One day at Emerald Isle:

10:30 am – 11:30 am: wake up and get ready for the day

11:30 am – 12:15 pm: take pictures with friends 

12:15 pm – 1:00 pm: take pictures with friends from neighboring houses 

1:00 pm – 1:30 pm: go to the beach 

1:30 pm – 3:00 pm: eat lunch 

3:00 pm – 5:00 pm: get ready for evening dinner and party 

5:00 pm – 3:00 am: evening dinner and party 

4:00 am: research the nearest COVID-19 testing spot 

5:00 am: go to sleep 

If you feel that you are missing out on this premium spring break experience, I regret to inform you that there is no application to join this spring break group.

However, if you have a house in Emerald Isle, a very relaxed parent, or a friend in high places, you might be included on this trip. Reach out to your local representative today to see if you are eligible for a luxury spring break trip to Emerald Isle.
