How To Make The Most Out Of Your Summer At Home

As summer quickly approaches for college students, some of us are dreading it while others are counting down the seconds until it comes. Some aren't excited to spend summer back in their small quiet hometown, while others can't wait to travel the country. However, for those who are working all summer or staying home, it can be hard. Having a fun summer in your hometown/local area can be done! You would be surprised how much it has to offer, that will give you all the Instagram-worthy pictures your heart can desire.

1. Take a hike.

No matter where you are from there are plenty of trails and/or mountains where you live. Take a few friends, reach a cool place for a picture, and make a day out of it!

2. Eat at new places.

Finding small new places to eat is very exciting. Venture into the city or even go a town over to try out a new cafe or Acai place, you won't regret it.

3. Go swimming.

Take a bunch of friends and head to a lake or river for swimming. Find places with cliffs to jump off and spend the day at.

4. Take a road trip.

Taking a road trip does not equate to going across the county. It can just be a few hours away and used as a day trip to break up the regular life of every day in your town.

5. Make DYI Projects

Keep yourself busy by hitting up Pinterest and making cool game day apparel and decor for your dorm or apartment in the fall.

6. Have cookouts, bonfires, or stargazing sessions.

Nothing beats spending time with friends and family on a warm summer night with good food, music, and memories. Enjoy the moment and these nights under the stars, they are priceless.

7. Better yourself.

Whether you want to get fit this summer, take classes, enjoy the moment, or give more of your time to those who need it, do it! Use the summer at home to your advantage because before you know it, school will be back in session.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
