Top 5 Places to Relax at MAK You Did not Think About
Taking a restful break is an essential key factor to surviving through a day, especially for extremely stressed high school students. However, recently MAK high school students have been facing the difficulty in finding a place to relax or to have a good lunch break. For those looking for tranquil environments to relax, here are my recommended Top 5 places to relax in MAK that you did not think about!
1. Library Right Corner
Let us jump right into my number one favorite place to relax. The library may sound boring, but I’m talking about this specific corner next to the AC in the library. It is the best place to get comfortable. The combination of a rugged floor and some love sac automatically allows for a quality power nap. Literally everything you need for a break is around you: plugs and charging stations are available for any device, and if you don’t have any devices with you, library computers are available. Water fountains and bathrooms are outside of the library. The main window is only five steps away from you to refresh your senses. To be undisturbed, check with Mr. Laytham beforehand for any elementary or middle school library class coming
Behind the Stage Curtain
Area behind the stage curtains are not only for the stage production workers but also could be a great place relax. It’s an ideal place for those who prefer working alone in a very quiet and dark area. Not much lights are allowed behind the curtain, it is very cool there. If you are trying to be away from others, this is also a place for you. Mostly the stage is empty, but be aware of the classes going in the band room behind the stage. The band room door usually blocks off most of the noise, but bring your earphone just in case. Also avoid when there are performances or practices going on. For extra comfort, borrow Newkirk’s pillow from his office. Just remember to ask for his permissions and promise to bring it back.
3. Office Couch
Office was the hot spot I used to enjoy chilling every morning. The AC and the soft couches are relaxing, and the bathroom and the nurse’s office are near for any emergency. Also when bored, they have some school yearbooks, handout and student handbooks to look over. Those are great time killers, especially if you have an Morrison alumn as a teacher. (It’s always fun to laugh at your own teacher’s childhood pictures.) It’s a little far from the high school wing so avoid coming here on Wednesday schedules. Make sure you are also contributing to the silent environment and not disturbing the office workers. You might get kicked out! Also avoid being in there if any guest are around the office lounge area. We want to respect them and give some space.
Picnic Area Outside the Gym
Many of us are familiar with this area due to the TTT activity. Other than those special cases, this area is not used by students enough. We do live in Taiwan where weather is mostly sunny and hot outside but it’s not so bad when bench has an umbrella providing shades. If it gets too hot, the gym is right next for quick AC breaks. The stairs to high school wing is extremely close, so time shouldn’t be a problem. Sometimes the gardeners have fertilizers around the field and the area may smell but that’s a rare incident. It’s always great to have lunch with friends here and feel somewhat picnicky.
The track and fields are usually not in our mind unless it’s PE class or after school sports time. It may be hot depending on the weather but other than that, the field is a great place to get some fresh air. Few of my classmates and I enjoyed the field the moment after our last final of the year. Bring your own picnic blanket and keep it in your locker to get really comfortable. Lay down and look up in the sky. We don’t get to do this often even though it’s the most given and simplest thing to do. Have your phone out and play music. Enjoy the beautiful campus scenery.
We all need our personal time and space. Respect others personal spaces as well as you wish to be respected. Hope the list above was somewhat helpful. Go on an adventure and find your own corner to chill and share with us! I encourage you to try to go out rather than staying in the building.
