Summer Bucket List

7 Things You Should Consider Doing This Summer

While summer is much anticipated, it can feel like a long stretch of time if you aren't kept busy with the right activities. It is easy to fall into a routine since, well, we have almost nothing to do now that school is out. So if you haven’t made a bucket list for the summer or a mental list of what you want accomplish then now is the time. In case you already have your bucket list, you can revisit it to see what to add to your list because I have got some great ideas you might enjoy.

1. Go on a road/camping trip

Schedule a road trip or a camping trip with friends! While it might seem like a lot of work, it is necessary to get out of the same environment and visit new places. Don't forget a road trip playlist though, as it is required for the optimum experience.

2. Learn another language

Learn another language: French, Spanish, German or whatever feels right. Learning another language is a great opportunity to know gain cultural knowledge of other countries. It is definitely something that looks great on your resume and will also get you out of your comfort zone. You will definitely impress your friends if you come back from summer with a new language on your tongue, mais oui j'approuve.

3.Go to a concert, or two

Going to a concert is a way to relax at the end of the day. Go see the artist whose concert you've been dying to attend and bring out your inner crazy side.

4. Channel your inner artist

If you have a talent or hobby you can't practice at school or don't feel like taking on as a career, now is you chance. Paint, refine your drawing skills or practice the piano. You'll thank yourself later.

5.Relax on the beach

If you live in the Midwest, well I'm extremely sorry. But I am sure you can find a nice water park to relax at or get your tan on. But all you West and East coasters, go to the beach, relax in the sand and enjoy the water. #noworries #summer

6. Go see new movies

This summer will definitely be filled with new movie releases. whether it is romance, action, horror, or comedy; you are set for this summer in terms of cinema. I encourage you to go see those movies and have a laugh or a scare. It's definitely worth adding to the summer bucket list.

7.Catch up with friends you haven’t seen in a while.

Having been away at college, you have certainly not seen a lot of your high school friends. Visit them this summer catch up. There is nothing better than catching up with old friends.

Have a great summer!

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
