Spice Up Your Summer

8 things to do when you're bored as heck.

Spice Up Your Summer
Tasting Table

If you’re anything like me, you moved back home for summer and you’re itching to do something with yourself. It’s not always easy coming home, no job, no real social life, and for the most part, nothing fun to do. So here’s a list of some easy fun stuff to do when you’re bored as heck.

1. Watch the movies and shows that are supposed to be leaving Netflix in a month.

Why not take the time to watch all the shows you’ve been meaning to watch before the opportunity is gone forever (jk but you’ll probably have to pay extra money).

2. Go on a Pinterest spree.

Nothing is more fun than looking up cool and fun projects that you wouldn’t normally have time to do, so get out that glue gun and start crafting!

3. Plant herb seeds in pots for your window sill.

It’ll good to give yourself a sense of responsibility by taking care of and tending to a couple plants. You can watch them grow over the summer and eventually use the herbs it produces! Plus it’ll make your place hipster as heck.

4. Make yourself a fancy breakfast.

This way you have motivation to get out of bed at a normal time instead of sleeping in all day. Plus having a really good breakfast sets you up to have a good day, even if you have absolutely nothing to do.

5. Have a dinner party.

Invite all of your friends to come over, dress up, and enjoy a meal together without any cell phones or distractions.

6. Take a long drive.

Fill up your gas tank and take a drive through the backroads of a small town. Crank the music and enjoy not having to be anywhere for any real reason.

7. Reorganize your room.

Sometimes it’s fun switching things up. Flip your bed so it faces a new direction or move your dresser to the other side of the room, either way you’re changing the energy of your space and giving yourself something to do.

8. Host a yard sale.

Cause while you’re reorganizing your room you might find some stuff that you might not necessarily want, but don’t want to throw it away either. Set up a table in the front yard and make some money.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
