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.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
