Great Ways To Revitalize Yourself This Summer

You deserve a time to experience the good things in life.

Great Ways To Revitalize Yourself This Summer

It's that time of year!! Summer is upon us. This is the time to give yourself permission to relax, reflect, rejuvenate, and find some pride in yourself for all of the hard work that you've accomplished this academic year.

To celebrate that and where you are on your journey, here are just some ideas on what you could do in your "Summer of revitalization 2019!"

1. Travel

This doesn't have to be anything huge. Maybe try a new restaurant, walk in a different part of town, or even just take a drive to a special place.

2. Go to a Drive-In Movie

Throw it back and do something genuine.

3. Lay a Blanket Out Under The Stars

This could be with someone you love, some friends, or even just yourself. Have you ever taken a moment to just look up and marvel in the magnificence of the universe? It's a truly beautiful thing.

4. Skinny Dip

So. Liberating.

5. Hang Out With Feel Good Friends

Laughter is healing. So are hugs.

6. Eat Some Ice Cream

Do I even have to explain this?

7. Go To A Beach

Or this. It's summer, my dudes.

8. Journal

Reflect and feed your soul!

9. Go On A Nature Walk

For me, this is so grounding and relaxing.

10. Feel The Earth Under Your Bare Feet

So is this.

11. Give Yourself Some "You" Time

You deserve it.

12. Do Something That Will Make You Happy!

Whatever just popped into your mind, even if you feel like other people wouldn't like it for you... DO IT. This is your one, beautiful life. Live it for you.

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.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
