5 Cool Things You Can Do This Summer

With finals week coming to an end and bright sunny days on the horizon, summer break is right around the corner. While we all look forward to the rest and relaxation, there are still plenty of ways to make the most out of this time... that is just not trying to find a part-time job that pays minimum wage. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

Here are a few ways that you can navigate your impending summer vacation!

1. Learn a new language!

With the many resources available online, it is easier than ever to pick up a new language! Ever wanted to be fluent in Spanish or read Chinese? Maybe this is the summer to make that dream a reality!

2. Go on a really cool spontaneous trip with a group of friends!

Sometimes you just got to get a group together and take a train somewhere with little planning. Trust me, it is a lot more fun than it sounds.

3. Go somewhere a little outside of your comfort zone by yourself!

Ever wanted to go somewhere but can never get a group to go with you? Why not make this summer the first time when you step out of your comfort zone and take a really cool trip by yourself?

4. Set a reading goal!

Everyone wants to read more, so maybe this summer is the time for you to really tackle that growing pile of unread books on your bookshelf. Set a reading goal for yourself to really challenge yourself with the number of books you can read over the summer.

5. Do some writing!

I love writing, but I sometimes struggle to find time during the school year to write for my own personal gain. Why not take advantage of the lack of homework and tackle the big writing project you have been putting off?

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
