Summer break is ending! Schools are out, and shops are loaded with back-to-school supplies. Here are some things to do to have a little fun before your days of freedom and enjoyment are completely over. Let's make the most out of what's left of summer break!


1. Go Thrift Shopping

Thrifting is a fun way to find cute and vintage pieces without breaking the bank! While it's become a huge trend now to thrift at mainstream stores like Goodwill, it's not difficult to find underground places to shop which only sell secondhand vintage clothing.

2. Go Hiking Or Camping

Some fresh air is exactly what you need before you're locked in your room doing AP Bio homework till 3 am. Hiking is not only relaxing to do alone but is also insanely enjoyable with friends or family. Plus you get to watch a beautiful scenery!

3. Deep Clean Your Room And Closet

There's no better feeling in this world than having a clean room. Deep cleaning your room can not only keep you organized and prepared for the coming school year, but it can also help you find some hidden gems you thought you lost. It's a nostalgic experience because you're basically rediscovering your childhood, you may find old things that you loved when you were younger. It's the perfect way to start a new beginning before attending school.

4. Go Visit A Body Of Water

There is so much you can do at a body of water like swimming, fishing, boating, tubing, sunbathing, and kayaking. Since it's so versatile, everybody is guaranteed to enjoy a day at the lake. You can be super adventurous and go jet-skiing, or if you prefer easy-going activities curling up with a book near the lake shore is just as good.

5. Read A Book (For Fun)

I get it, you're saving reading anything till school starts, but you'll be surprised to know reading can actually be a really fun and calming hobby that almost everyone enjoys, even If you swear reading just isn't your thing. You just have to find a book or genre you know you'll enjoy.

6. Try A New Food

This one's kind of silly, but still worthy of doing before school starts. Go and try a fruit that's relatively unheard, like durian or jackfruit. You never know If you like it unless you try it, right?

7. Make A Ton Of Face Masks

Skincare is important. Get that natural sun-kissed glow by hydrating your skin with some face masks! Based on your skin type and problem areas of your face, you should buy or make skin-specific masks to replenish and retain your skin's glow!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
