13 Activities To Take Advantage Of This Summer
Allie Rusinski

Even though we are in July now, I still have things I want to do before summer comes to a close. I hope you see these different activities and try doing them with your friends, family, boyfriend, etc. Let us make this summer, one to remember!!

1. GO TO A "NICE" BEACH

Beaches, where I live, are not really the greatest & so I want to go to one that has actual sand, clear water, and is a good time.

2. SEE A SHOOTING STAR

I see at least three every summer & I love getting to see more each and every year. They are just so special and absolutely breathtaking. If you have yet to see one, I recommend looking for them in August (that is when you will see them the most!)

3. GO ON A NEW ADVENTURE

There are thousands of different places to explore in my hometown and probably yours as well. Take advantage of the gorgeous weather and get out there. Find cool and exciting things!

4. GO TO THE FAIR

Every year I go to the fair and I would say I got at least five times a year. The atmosphere is just amazing and so is the greasy food. There is no place I would rather be than at the fair my last few weeks of summer vacation. Look to see if there is a fair by you & go to it.

5. HAVE A BONFIRE WITH FRIENDS

I love relaxing by the fire with my favorite people, just talking & chillin'.

6. GO TO A COUNTRY CONCERT

I at least like to go to one or two country concerts in the summer. They are always such a good time with good vibes and even better music. Find a country concert near you and have some fun.. trust me you will thank me later.

7. RELAX ON THE LAKE

I have been going to a lake with my boyfriends family for about two years now and it is the most relaxing vacation I have ever taken. I feel so calm and it surprises me because I am never calm...EVER. If you have the chance to go to a lake/beach for a few days, take that chance.

8. BLAST MUSIC IN THE CAR & JUST DRIVE

There is nothing I love more than being with my boyfriend, family, or friends, jamming to different songs while driving aimlessly. I think that is one of my favorite things to do in the summer, and I can not wait to do it again.

9. MEET A NEW FRIEND

I would love to meet new people in the summer and eventually have them become great friends. I love meeting new faces and getting to know them.

10. OVERCOME A FEAR

We all have many fears and I have one that holds me back from doing the one thing I really want to do. This summer is all about becoming a new and happier me... so that means facing my fears and having a good time!

11. PLAY IN THE RAIN

okay, but for real...this is so much fun to do. Usually, I say I can not stand the rain, but when you are outside having fun and goofing around...it is honestly the best. So on the next rainy day, go outside and have some fun.

12. UNPLUG FOR ONE FULL DAY

I want to try it out this summer. Basically, for an entire day, you shut off your phone, your social media, the TV, and the computer. You shut those off and get outside to do something productive.

13. JUMP ON A TRAMPOLINE

I know this one is extremely silly, but I do not have a trampoline and I have always wanted one. This summer I just want to jump on a trampoline....that is all...


I hope these helped you in figuring out what to do for the rest of the summer...Have fun and good luck :)

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!

It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
