The Definitive Guide to Your Adult Snow Day

Snowstorm Hercules is hammering the east coast. It's time to get inside, get cozy, and start relaxing.

With Winter Storm Hercules (eye roll, Weather Channel) dumping snow in 21 different states, there's a good chance if you look out your window right now you can see some wintery weather.

If there's enough snow on the ground out there you might have even been lucky enough to score yourself that rare gem known as an Adult Snow Day. They don't come around often, so when they do it's important to take total advantage of them. Sure you've got work to do, but life is for the living! CARPE ... SNOW DAY.

(Apparently there is no latin word for Snow Day, but I think you get what we're going for.)

So, for your consideration, here are the absolute, without a doubt, best ways to pass the time during your day off from work. (And if you ARE at work, just consider them excellent weekend plans instead)

1.) Take your pants off. 

There are days for pants, and snow days are not one of them.

2.) Spike your hot chocolate.

Snow day = vacation, and vacation requires a relaxing cocktail. So that should be the end of discussion on this one. 

3.) Finally watch all those new Beyonce videos from her secret album.

Or watch some old videos of Beyonce. It doesn't really matter, just get some Queen Bey in your life.

4.) Netflix binge with no regrets.

Orange is the New Black? Sherlock? Breaking Bad? Blackfish? There's got to be something on your list you've been putting off starting. TODAY'S THE DAY. 

5.) Try out that recipe you pinned to your "Future Projects" board 11 weeks ago.

Or don't, because doing things is hard and mac and cheese never goes out of style. 

6.) Grab your roommate/parent/friend/sibling/partner/cat and play a board game!

Board games are SO FUN ... until you get mad about landing on Park Place and losing all your money. The struggle is real. 

7.)  Catch up on some much-needed beauty rest.

You've been burning the the candle at both ends and you need a breather. Put your phone on vibrate, send a few emails to coworkers so they think you're hard at work even though you both know neither of you are and grab a few zzz's. It's not like you've got anywhere to be.
