Don't Let The Red Devil Kill Your Summer Vibe!

Don't Let The Red Devil Kill Your Summer Vibe!

Sleeping in late, lots of sunshine, and cozy nights around the campfire are some of the things that make for a summer worth remembering.

Summer has been defined as "the moment that every child, adolescent, teenager and college student awaits." Although it is intended to be a time of rest, relaxation, and much anticipated vacation, it typically ends up being about 90% laying on the couch playing xbox, and about 10% catching up with friends. However, if you're anything like us, you think that summer is one of the best times of the year. For us, sleeping in late, lots of sunshine, and cozy nights around the campfire are some of the things that make for a summer worth remembering. We're ready to enjoy all that this summer has to offer, but we're also preparing for the inevitable thoughts that come along with that 90% of boredom.



Unpacking - Coming home for summer break can be both a blessing and a curse. The unpacking part? Definitely a curse. But it's not just the living out of a suitcase that can be troublesome. It's the part where you can't find your day-to-day necessities that really gets to me. I guess you've just got to learn how to get by with what you can find.



Final Grades - Okay, so finals are done. You've moved home. You've unpacked. (Alright, fine. You brought all your things into your room. That counts, right?) And now, we wait. One day, two days, three days, four.... A week?! Some teachers are strict on their policies, but when it comes to the rules they have to follow, I guess it's a little bit different. Waiting for final grades to be submitted can become such a routine that it's actually shocking when you go online and see that they've finally been posted.



Boredom - What's the worst thing that could happen to you during summer vacation? You have to sit and watch as all of your friends are out having fun and enjoying their break while you're sitting at home by yourself. Oh, that's right. All of my friends are from school... And they don't live around here... And I'm alone. Cool.



Laziness - Murphy's 4th (lesser known) law is as follows: students at rest will stay at rest unless acted upon by a great enough panic attack. Sitting at home, alone, is definitely one of the leading causes of my laziness. Maybe even lazy enough to take a nap because my phone died and the charger is all the way on the other side of the room.



Not Bored For Once - Then, by some miraculous work of the gods, you have a day off and plans to fill your empty hours. This is going to be the highlight of your summer! Until... you wake up and find that it's raining on your only opportunity to have a social life this summer. Better luck next year!





With a great summer vacation comes great possibility, but there is one thing we're sure of: summer break is what you make of it, so stay optimistic and we're sure you'll kill it!

The Thanksgiving season is a time we spend with our loved ones giving thanks for the blessings we are given. Here are 20 Bible verses that remind us of what Thanksgiving is all about:

1) 1 Chronicles 16:34

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.

2) Colossians 3:15-17

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

3) Philippians 4:6

15 Last-Minute Fall Activities For Anyone Who Hasn’t Done Anything Yet

You don't want to wait another year to do these fun things!

views

With the weather we keep having here in Ohio, it feels as if we have just skipped the season of fall altogether and went from summer straight to winter. What is that about? Fall is my favorite season and every year I tell my friends that we should do all these fall-related activities. Last year, I didn't do any of them. And this year, that same ending is likely to be repeated. So, if you're like me, and haven't done anything related to the season, here are fifteen activities you should plan before the season is completely over.

1. Go apple picking

Either to an actual orchard, or you could go to the grocery store and buy a bundle of apples, place them in a basket, and pose by any old tree, and take pictures. No one will be able to tell the difference.

2. Go to a pumpkin patch

Or any grocery store and buy pumpkins of various sizes and tell yourself you didn't have time this year to go to an actual patch.

3. Go to a haunted house

Why pay $35 or more on a haunted house, when logging onto Blackboard or Canvas can give you an even bigger scare for free?

4. Get lost in a corn maze

Picture this: going to the grocery store with your mom, she wanders off, and you spend the remainder of your trip trying to look for her. It's basically the same thing.

5. Have a scary movie marathon

A fun roommate bonding activity: put on a scary movie, scream, and jump, then go to bed. All the while, it's pitch black outside. What's better than that?

6. Get dressed up

Wear a tuxedo or formal dress to classes and you're all dressed up. Or find a costume at Goodwill and wear that.

7. Go out partying

Or get dressed up at your dorm/apartment and stay in and watch movies or do homework. You could go out in the cold in a costume or you could stay in and huddle under three blankets. The choice is up to you but staying in already sounds so much more enticing.

8. Go camping

And try not to think about how dozens of horror movies end when a group of people going camping. That would just ruin your fun.

9. Buy a pumpkin spice latte

Go to Starbucks. Order a PSL. Take one sip. Post a picture of the drink on your Snapchat or Instagram story. Then throw it in the garbage because those drinks are trash.

10. Jump into a pile of leaves

And try to ignore the fact that there could be thousands of little bugs and germs within that pile and just try to reach your inner child.

11. Drink apple cider

This will bring back some memories from your childhood. But as an adult, don't look at the nutrition facts. Especially the sugar content.

12. Carve or paint pumpkins

Take out your grocery store bought pumpkins and carve or paint away. While you're doing that, throw those pumpkin seeds into the oven to have a snack when you're done carving away.

13. Eat a caramel apple

This will get you into the fall spirit: with a sweet snack that is almost healthy.

14. Step on every leaf you pass

Hearing that satisfying crunch of leaves as you step on them is one of the best parts of fall. The worst is when you step on a leaf and it doesn't crunch.

15. Get ready for Christmas

Just blatantly ignore the wonderful Thanksgiving, and start preparing for Christmas. These deals won't last long.
