Ok, so maybe you shouldn’t be procrastinating during exams right now, but just in
case you need a quick study break, I happen to know about a few sites…
There’s nothing like an addictive game that expands your vocabulary AND helps put food on someone’s plate. When you correctly choose the correct definition of a word, 10 grains of rice are donated to the World Food Programme to help end world hunger. Sure, 10 grains of rice might not seem like much to begin with, but it starts to add up! How much rice can you help donate during your study break?
Think you know your geography? Guess again! This is an awesome game that gives you a 5 minute vacation around the world, without the costly baggage fees or the need to leave your desk. Hint: check which side of the road cars are driving on, and the language the street signs are written in for clues about where you are!
An anonymous blog written by some fellow UBC students, the posts about UBC-related experiences never fail to make me smile. There’s something relatable in here for everyone, no matter your faculty or year!
Feeling stressed? Squishing the gummy bears in this game is surprisingly cathartic, although I must warn you- it’s really, really hard to stop playing once you start. Set a timer if you need to get back to your books!
