12 Things To Try When You Only Have A Two Week Summer

Summer is coming to an end. But, for some of us, it is also just starting.

For those of us who took spring and summer classes, we only get a two-week summer break. For those who only get two weeks for our summer break, it feels like you get just long enough to breathe and re-center ourselves before diving head first into the stress and craziness of the fall semester.

If this sounds like you and you don't know how to center yourself and relax before the craziness hits you like a brick here are some thoughts on how you can do that without breaking the bank.

1. Go to the beach with your friends.

your friends will make you feel better about everything and chances are you haven't really gotten much sun this summer if you have been in classes all summer

2. Practice self care

no seriously if you can do this you will be more relaxed for the upcoming semester

3. Get your planner

and have it already organized

4. Go to the bar on karaoke night.

after all you will probably laugh at some of the drunk people singing and laughter is the best medicine for everything.

5. Take a day or weekend trip to your favorite city

You will feel better after you make the trip

6. Take a trip home to see your family

especially if they help you stay grounded

7.Catch up on some sleep

because you know you won't be getting much again once the fall semester really gets rolling.

8. Stay away from your school as much as possible

You really only have 2 weeks left so why would you want to spend it on your campus when you could spend it doing something else.

9. Go to a concert or local show

everyone else you know got to go to a concert so why shouldn't you go to one too.

10. Check your email

you might have a professor email you with something that want you to have done for the first class and you don't want to start out behind.

11. Have a few days that you do nothing

seriously it will help you feel more relaxed when you start the fall semester.

12. Just be yourself

being who you truly are is the best way to get yourself re-centered before starting a new semester.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
