25 Things To Do Before Summer Is Over
4K Wallpaper.net

Most of us have have begun packing our bags, getting ready to head back to our campuses or stepping on campus as a freshman for the first time. Sharing our last laughs with loved ones and best friends before leaving, we prepare for the upcoming semester. Usually, we are busy buying last minute supplies for our dorms and classes rather than enjoying our last few days of summer. For us freshman, it's especially important that we take a step back, and enjoy and cherish the last few days of summer with our families and friends before parting. To me, it seems that we talk about how fast summer has flown by than having on our own adventures.

It's important to realize we have so much time and advantages on our hands. Hopefully the list below will help cross activities off of your "Summer Bucket List"

1. Go to a drive-in movie.

A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.

Hittin' the Road Playlist

With the end of August approaching more quickly than many of us would like, the preparation for school is happening in more ways than just one.


The car is all packed. The money you saved (and didn't spend online) from your summer internship is secured quietly in your bank account. The immediate reunion with your long-distance college friends is set. The real question on everyone's minds is: do you have the perfect melody to jam to as you journey back to school?
