A Look Into My Summer Bucket List Maryland Edition

A Look Into My Summer Bucket List Maryland Edition

My friends and I make a summer bucket list every year of everything we want to do together before summer ends.

My friends and I all work full-time jobs so making time to all spend time together can be difficult but that doesn't stop us from making our list. We make our bucket list as soon as we are all home from college. The list always contains a day trip to the beach, a concert, and your other basic summer festivities.

This year, we added some new things to the list such as a trip to Alexandria, VA and a trip to DC. It's always fun to go into the city for the day to shop and explore. We usually take the metro which is always easy and cheap.

We never end up doing everything on the list, we just run out of time. Something new we added to the list this year is going to Beaver dam which is a swimming location with zip lines and high dives. We haven't gone to Beaver dam yet, but hopefully, we'll go by the end of summer.

The list also contains simple things that we would do even if it wasn't on the list like go to downtown Annapolis. We all also got gym membership together which was not on the list either but was a good idea because we go together frequently.

Even though we won't be able to check everything off our list this summer, we still make time for each other despite our busy lives and that's what is important. Coming home for summer after a year of college is very different from summer break in high school. Everyone is busier, working full-time jobs, working internships, or taking online classes.

I've been home from school for a little under 2 months and all I have been doing is working which I don't mind but I've decided to start spending more time doing fun things and cutting down my hours at work.

Summer is whatever you make it, it always flies by so I try not to waste any time.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Now that college is around the corner for most if not all young adults, students once shook by a pandemic now have to shift their focus on achieving their career goals. As if we thought we had it together already! As an NYC girl, I have always seen myself as a hustler, hungry to advance my career in journalism by having one skill: working hard.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
