5 Things To Do This Summer

Are you bored during the summer? Well, here are some ideas!

5 Things To Do This Summer

Over the summer, I start to miss seeing my friends and going to school. I tend wish that summer was shorter so I could go back to seeing all my friends. But over the years, I've started to cure my boredom. Here are 10 things that I like to do when I'm bored during summer break.

1. Get a job

I know that's probably the last thing that anyone wants to do, but in all honesty, it's a great thing overall. You get money, and you can get out of the house for a while. Jobs look really good on resumes, and all that money can help you when you go back to school. You can afford more groceries or be able to do more fun activities with your friends. A job is a great thing to do while over summer break.

2. Arts and crafts

Being in a sorority has definitely sparked my creative side. I love to decorate my dorm room with the crafts that I made, and summer is the perfect time to research and to create the perfect craft. Painting canvases is one of my favorite projects because I can create so many different canvases to decorate with. There are many different arts and crafts that anyone can do: the perfect cure for summer boredom.

3. Spend time with family and old friends

It's always nice to catch up with people you haven't seen in a while, so find old friends that you used to hang out with and have some fun, or take the time to spend it with your family. When you're away at school, you miss your family, so spend time with them while you can.

4. Plan a trip (or a few)

Summer is the perfect time to plan a trip with all your friends and family. Go somewhere you've never been before; it doesn't have to be an expensive trip, just somewhere fun that everyone will enjoy.

5. Relax!

Don't worry about anything — take the summer to enjoy life and not stress about anything. Summer is a time where there is no school, so no worries! Just enjoy the summer while you can. Go tan out by the pool with a nice cool drink and enjoy the warm weather.

Summer is one of my favorite times of the year, and there are only so many free summers that we have until we realize that we have to get real jobs and be adults. Don't be bored over the summer, there is a whole world to explore just waiting for you.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
