  • Post-Spring Break Recovery

    Spring break is an awesome opportunity to unwind, but it can take more out of you than you realize! If you’re having trouble getting back into your routine, here are some tips on how to recover from spring break.

    Getting a little too much sun can be a real energy drain. If you spent your spring break on the beach or tropical destination, chances are your winter skin wasn’t as prepared as it should have been! If you’ve got a bit of sunburn that you just can’t shake, get some aloe and slather it over the most affected spots before bed each night. Make sure you take cool showers and wear loose clothing to begin the healing process.

    If you took spring break as an opportunity to get some work in or volunteering done, you may have overexerted yourself by staying out in the heat or forgetting to hydrate properly. Dehydration is a serious condition that can lead to fever, nausea, or even death in extreme cases.

    Make sure you are getting plenty of fluids to re-hydrate yourself immediately. If you’re feeling sluggish or nauseous, take a break and snag a Gatorade! Next time you grab your hammer for Habitat for Humanity or different volunteer organization, remember to grab a bottle of water too.

    Having an altered schedule for a week can throw your body off its routine. Make sure you take the opportunity to catch up on sleep if you didn’t get enough during spring break. Falling asleep in class is pretty embarrassing, so avoid it with some serious shut eye (caffeine is not an acceptable substitute!).

    Facing a mountain of laundry after your spring break trip? With a higher-than-usual amount of chores to be done after spring break, it can be difficult to find the motivation to get started. Take this opportunity to tackle some belated “spring cleaning” and purge your closets to get ready for summer!

    If spring break was your last hurrah before crunch time (finals anyone?), it can be nerve-wracking to re-enter the real world. Don’t stress! Make a smoothie and grab your calendar. You would be amazed how much stress you can eliminate from your life by just scheduling out a few weeks at a time. Watch your blood pressure drop while productivity rises, just by carving out some time for the gym, pesky errands, and even some down time to unwind. It’s also a great chance to start thinking about your next vacay!

    Spring break can be a great chance to have fun or help someone – just remember to take care of yourself as well and post-spring break recovery will be much easier.

  • Chop Sticks Art Show at Subtext Gallery

    Neko and Persue at Subtext Gallery

    Subtext Gallery is known for cutting-edge shows on the forefront of the San Diego art scene. While they often showcase artists from around the world, they never forget their roots by promoting San Diego-based artists on the regular (which makes them totally awesome in our book). With an emphasis on "contemporary, illustrative, graphic design, pop surrealist, street art, and lowbrow", you can often find Wheatpasters at each opening - basically, we love 'em!

    Their latest show is one that any self-respecting street art fan really shouldn't miss. Neko & Persue are staples of the San Diego street art scene, and "Chop Sticks" at Subtext Gallery is the perfect chance to check out the two epic artists in one fell swoop.

    Neko Burke has worked on projects from furniture to huge wall murals and everything in between. His recognizable style is gritty, geometric, and often aggressive with snarling faces and agitated patterns. Typographic art fonts often overlap weird faces and shapes to create compositions that leave you a little uncomfortable, but sure that what you're seeing is a completely original view.

    Persue a.k.a. BunnyKitty has street art murals up all over San Diego and beyond. He's released prints, a limited edition MTN can, and even runs Home Mercantile in Encinitas and North Park. His iconic BunnyKitty character has been a staple in street art for years, always popping up where you'd least expect it.

    "If you're familiar with San Diego street art, you've seen their work. And if you don't follow the scene, you've still seen their work." Subtext Gallery hits the nail right on the head - the show closes April 26, so there's just over a week to head down to Subtext Gallery to check out this extremely, extremely rad show. Don't let Chop Sticks at Subtext Gallery pass you by without at least a peek!
