19 Unconventional Things To Add To Your Summer Bucket List

Every summer, we all have a list of things that we want to get done before the fall rolls in and we head back to school. A lot of things include going to the beach, losing weight, or have a bonfire. Summer is an amazing time, but here are some different things to take on this summer!

Visit a farm

Find a local farm! Seeing some pigs and cows can be a fun day trip!

Do charity work

Giving back to those who need help the most is something we should all try to do when we can.

Have extended family time

Go find the cousins and uncles and aunts and have a family cookout or beach day!

Read a good book

You have the entire summer, why not find a good book to relax with and enjoy.

Try a new food

Give something new a try, if you don't like it you have the rest of the summer to stock up on ice cream.

Get a summer job

Might as well make some money this summer so you can afford all the fun things you want to do.

See a play/musical

Do something "classy" and go to a theater and see the play/ musical playing! There's always a good one around!

Keep a journal

Keep track of your summer with a daily journal! Then you can relive your summer even when it's over!


If writing isn't your thing, take a daily photo to show what you do for the summer and keep them on your phone or a journal! This will be something amazing to look back on when the summer is over.

Learn how to play a new sport

Tennis, kayaking, or any other sport you want to learn more about, this is the time to do it!

Grab a pad of paper or a canvas or find some fun ideas on Pinterest! Have fun this summer and use your free time creatively!

Visit a state you've never been to

Why not go on a road trip to some new places! Carpe Diem!

Go to a sporting event

Grab some baseball tickets (or any other game) and have a fun day!

Visit monuments/ famous locations near your house

Get some history into your summer and learn about your surroundings!

Watch your favorite childhood show

Spongebob, Hey Arnold, Ed, Edd, n Eddie, Dexter's Lab... the list can go on forever! Why not enjoy some time with your old favorites

Visit a flea market

Go out and find some old gems and hidden treasures at a local flea market!

Clean out your closet (literally or figuratively)

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.


Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
