Every summer is a new opportunity — especially while you're still in school and you excess free time readily available. With this being my last summer as a student, I've come up with a list of ideas to make the most of my free time, and I'm hoping you guys try out this bucket list too.

Have a picnic

Pack up some fruit, nuts and sandwiches. Throw in some lemonade and beer — along with a blanket. Then, eat outside with your significant other for a cute date!

Go on a hike

Nothing beats looking out over a beautiful mountain in the summertime, except maybe the fact that you walked like ten miles and got in, like, your week's worth of workouts.

Go shopping

My wardrobe is basically only summer clothing, leggings, and sweaters. Summer clothes are — undoubtedly — the best ones there are. Don't miss out on the great fashion that comes every summer.

Take a roadtrip with your friends

Road trips either suck or will be the best times you'll ever have. All you need is the right group of people, a little time off, and a fun path to travel and try new things.

Hit the beach with your family

Family time at the beach is the best type there is. You get to ride waves, jet ski, build sand castles with little siblings, read and suntan. It's simply a must-do every summer.

Go on a crazy ride

Do you know those bungee cord balls at the boardwalk? I'm talking about stuff like that. Go on the craziest, scariest ride you can imagine just to get that adrenaline rush and excitement.

Go swimming

Just go and swim, regardless of if it's in a river, lake or pool. It's refreshing and a unique summer experience.

Catch fireflies

If the summer goes by and you don't catch a single firefly, you'll be missing out on one of the simplest joys in life.

Play some sports

Volleyball, soccer and baseball — really any outdoor sport will do. Just get some friends together and play a laidback game at your local park. It's just as fun as you remember it when you were a kid!

Pick up a new hobby

Just try something new! Maybe you'll decide to learn an art style, learn a new instrument, or learn to cook. Anything will do! Just expand your horizons by trying new things that you always put off.

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.


Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

The history of photography is the recount of inventions, scientific discoveries and technical improvements that allowed human beings to capture an image on a photosensitive surface for the first time, using light and certain chemical elements that react with it.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
