6 Inexpensive Things To Do This Summer
Reader's Digest

Summer break is about relaxing from school and enjoying the (hopefully) nice weather. Many college students find that they feel bored because they "have nothing to do" during the summer because they can't afford to go on big trips around the country or world. There are many affordable things that can be done during the summer months that don't require lots of travel or commitment.

1. Go see a movie

There are tons of movies that are released during the summer months and it is a great opportunity to take a break from being in the sun and heat and enjoy a new movie. A movie ticket itself doesn't cost that much money usually and instead of getting a soda and candy, just ask for an ice water which should be free.

2. Go to a park

Parks are a great place to go and bring a blanket and just hang out or read. If you have a hammock, it is also a great public place to hang your hammock.

3. Visit your local library

Libraries offer a large selection of books you can read in the comfort of air conditioning.

4. Go on a walk around your community

Walking is a great way to get exercise, and going around your community can help you notice things you may not see when you are driving around.

5. Go on a bike ride

If you own a bike, it is a great way to get around and explore places you can't get to in a car. It also doesn't need gas so you save money by not using your car.

6. Take pictures with your phone

No need for a fancy camera, you can take pictures on your phone of local buildings or of nature. It is a great way to see the world around you and if you have an Instagram account, you can post the pictures you take there.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
