Need a breather? 5 excuses for escaping the family madness

 
You love your fam, we know you do. But when your sibs are hogging the tube and your little cousins are hopped up on sugar and Gram keeps forgetting she’s already asked you a bajillion times about your nonexistent boyfriend, well, let’s just say you’re long overdo for a little you-time. Here’s how to grab it.

 

 

Excuse #1

Getting ahead on “homework.” Whether or not your teachers assigned reading and math worksheets over winter break, you could def use some time for pleasure reading. And hey? Your ‘rents are never gonna know if you’re sitting at your desk plugging away for your GPA or just getting in some R&R. Take a break from the crazy fam to crack open a library book or find some time to journal.

 

Excuse #2

A friend’s in trouble. Your BFF is in the middle of a major crisis and absolutely needs your help. Excuse yourself from the family gathering for a few minutes to just give her a call and catch up.

 

Excuse #3

Offer to walk the dog. A long walk through the neighborhood is bound to calm your nerves- and his-after being buckled down inside. And who’s gonna know if you stop by your friend’s house just to chat for a bit?

 

Excuse #4

“I’m not feeling well.” Even if you’re not a victim of the flu, ya could prob use a quick catnap. Find a way out of the crowd to curl up in bed for an hour. You’ve needed to catch some zzz’s, and the fam will understand.

 

Excuse #5

Group project. Even though the presentation isn’t for another month, you’ve been dying to chill with your friends and maybe brainstorm ideas. Either way, a change of environment and a BFF session is the perfect solution to avoiding family drama.
