Challenge Yourself With A Summer Bucket List
Sarah Cucco

Summer is a great time to relax from the busy school schedule. The warm weather, sun, and wealth of activities provide great opportunities for exploration. However, in the expanse of the many great activities, we forget about our summer goals.

This summer make a bucket list to keep yourself motivated and off the couch. The list does not have to include grand adventures like venturing out of the country, but small things like walking your dog every day, going to the beach once a week, or even reading a set number of books each month of summer.

Bucket lists can act as a more fun to-do list to engage you in completing summer goals. This way instead of bingeing Netflix all summer or forgetting important things you wanted to get done, you have a go-to on what you want to complete.

Just because the school year stops does not mean you should forget about pursuing your goals. There are many adventures that await and can be completed outside of school. Even in your hometown (no matter how small) there are things to be done. Consider making a vegetable garden, growing sunflowers in your backyard, redesigning your room, reading a book a week, going to the gym every other day, learning to cook handmade pasta, or even learning how to paint.

There are also a lot of outdoor adventures that can be accomplished like training to run a 3k, riding a bike around your neighborhood, and swimming outside (in a lake, pool, or the ocean).

Summer is filled with so many adventures and goals waiting to be accomplished that can easily be forgotten in the face of relaxation. Don't forget all the great things that can be accomplished with the extra time provided by long summer days. Make a bucket list and include small and big goals on your list!

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.

Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
