Small towns don't have to be boring.

Living In A Small Town

If you're like me, you love being from a small town. However, if you are someone who is dreading going back home for the summer, this list can definitely help you out. Being from a small town myself, I totally understand that they can be boring at times. Since I am from a small town, I have had to learn how to get creative when it comes to finding things to do for fun. If you follow this list, you are guaranteed to have a memorable summer!

Take a road trip with friends

When there is nothing to do in your own town, the best thing to do is drive to another one. Over summer, there are so many music festivals that would be so fun to experience with friends. When you take a road trip with your friends, you create such a strong bond with them. What could be better than traveling and getting closer with the people you are already closest to? Although a road trip might only last a couple of days, the laughs and memories you experience are guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Paint a canvas

This one is so easy because all it takes is a canvas and some paint! This activity especially works for a rainy day. Grab a group of friends and paint cute canvases to decorate your room, apartment, or dorm. Even if you have no artistic ability (like me), it's still fun to see what the finished product is. Painting is also a great way to relieve stress. Turn on some chill music and see what kind of creative paintings you can come up with!

Do a scavenger hunt around your town

A small town is a perfect place for a scavenger hunt! It's so convenient because chances are you probably know how to get around your town and are familiar with where everything is. Scavenger hunts are also great for when you're bored because they take up a lot of time. You can put one of your friends in charge of getting all the objects that your group has to find. Another person could be in charge of making up the clues, and someone else can be in charge of creating a map. Scavenger hunts are so fun and it's always great to have a little friendly competition!

Swim (duh!)

pool party

This might seem obvious, but a pool party is a perfect way to have fun over summer. Make a whole day out of it by bringing out some corn hole boards, a volleyball net, and some barbecue! I know I definitely would not be bored at a pool party like this. What's better than having fun with friends, tanning, winning a corn hole/volleyball tournament, and eating some great food? Nothing!

Movie night

If your town is so small that you don't have a movie theatre, this is perfect for you. Not only is it free, but you can watch as many movies as you want! You get unlimited free popcorn and other snacks all in the comfort of your own home. I honestly cannot think of anything better. Invite your friends and watch the scariest, funniest, or most romantic movies you can find! This is a guaranteed good time.

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.

If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

November is such an underrated month.
