The Alternative Spring Break

Hi again!

Spring Break is just a few days away, and by the time you're reading this, I am probably making the journey all the way to Nepal. This year for Spring Break, my roommate and I are traveling to Kathmandu to volunteer in an orthopedic hospital. I'm so excited, but I am also very nervous.

Break A Difference coordinates local alternative spring break trips.

In the past, I've done more typical spring break trips. My first year I took a cruise and last year we traveled to D.C. and Chincoteague. This year I felt compelled to partake in something more service-oriented, which led me to the concept of the alternative spring break. The idea is to spend spring break giving back rather than indulging. Often time, in the midst of volunteering, there are also opportunities to travel and have fun, too.

I am volunteering through the organization A Broader View this year.

Alternative spring break trips exist in many forms. There are some very inexpensive trips that take place locally in the U.S. There are also international trips both close to home and far away: from Mexico to India to Nigeria. Whatever the location, a spring break spent volunteering is not only a fun experience but also a fantastic addition to a resume or applications to jobs, graduate schools and more.

Have you considered an alternative spring break?

  41. Aleksandr “s1mple” Kostylev is known to be one of the best Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players in the world. Despite being first known as a paramount rifler, he began to showcase his amazing potential with the sniper rifles in Amazing Gaming and HellRaisers.

    Having started his career in the game in 2013 with Ukrainian team LAN DODGERS, he was discovered in early 2014 after his impressive showings online especially on StarSeries IX for team Courage Gaming. Due to internal issues, however, Kostlyev parted company with the ex-Courage squad and returned to the DODGERS team that later became Amazing Gaming.

    In mid-September 2014, s1mple saw his career elevate to a new height as he signed for team HellRaisers, joining stars like Dosia and markeloff.[1] In his time in HR, his first international achievement happened at DreamHack Winter 2014, beating fnatic in the group stage 16-14, which led to surprising win of the whole group. Their DHW run ended in the quarter-finals as they were dominantly beaten by Ninjas in Pyjamas, losing the series 2-0.

    HellRaisers parted ways with s1mple about two months later, with the main reason for the decision being s1mple’s ban from ESL tournaments (a notably harsh blow to his potential due to two majors organized by ESL in 2015). His ban has finally expired on February 1, 2016.

    s1mple then joined the predominantly Ukrainian Flipsid3 Tactics team. Due to his aforementioned ESL ban, players like DavCost and CyberFocus were often seen standing-in for him in events managed by ESL. He left the squad on July 17, 2015 following internal problems, and later announced that he would be going inactive for the time being. However, he took a sudden U-turn to this decision only a few days later as it was announced that he would join the revamped roster of Evolution, which later rebranded to Evolution.Dark. His Evolution.Dark story didn’t last long as Evolution released whole “Dark” squad after a month. However, the players would keep playing together under name of Worst Players.

    Just a few weeks later, it was announced that s1mple was going to stand-in for his former team, HellRaisers, which had been looking for the fifth player after the surprising departure of Dosia.[2] Two weeks later HellRaisers attended DreamHack Stockholm 2015, which was a qualifier for upcoming Major, DreamHack Cluj Napoca 2015. The team failed to qualify despite being a big favorite for a Major spot, as they lost to Titan eSports 1:2 in the winners match, and then were upset by Vexed Gaming losing 1:2, which they had defeated just a day before 2:0.

    s1mple became good friends with Hiko while Hiko was playing as a stand in for Flipsid3 Tactics, who would later go on to recruit him to Team Liquid, sacrificing his university course in the process. Team Liquid, with s1mple and Hiko would go on to make it to the semi-finals of MLG Major Championship: Columbus. At the same major, s1mple was chosen for the NA vs EU All-Star Game on the NA side which would go on to win the match in overtime. s1mple was awarded the All-Star MVP.
