Let's face it: a lot of college culture revolves around drinking and partying. Thursday through Saturday, you WILL find groups of people stumbling to the bars, laughing uncontrollably, and inevitably doing stupid, intoxicated things. College, for a lot of people, is a time to push limits and have a ridiculous amount of fun. Whether or not you participate, you can't deny that where there are college kids, there is going to be drinking. That's just the way it is.

That being said, St. Patrick's day, while it is officially a celebration of Irish culture, is a day that all the drunks have come to love and celebrate. To those who love it, it's a day of many memories. Some get up at 6 a.m. and are hungover 3 separate times by the end of the day. Some like to laugh at all the drunk people and make sure nothing too dangerous goes down. Either way, a lot of people, specifically college kids are HUGE fans of the holiday and will stop at nothing to celebrate.

Many even celebrate Fake Patty's Day, which is essentially celebrating the holiday a weekend before the actual day since March 17 typically falls on a weekday, where party culture is (usually) not socially accepted. But this year, somehow the stars have beautifully aligned, and St. Patrick's Day is on a Saturday this year. This won't happen again for another 12 years, in 2029, so this event is kinda a big deal, if ya ask me.

Here at Bowling Green State University, we are HUGE fans of St. Patrick's Day. Even as a first-year student, you just KNOW it's a big deal. People start talking about how they excited they are as soon as Spring Semester begins, and the passion and excitement slowly builds on as we trudge through the first few months of the year. So the fact that the holiday falls on Saturday, where most classes and schoolwork can be pushed aside in favor of other, more fun (and more alcoholic) activities, makes the day all that much more exciting to look for.

With excitement at an all-time high for an already crazy day, 2018's St. Patrick's Day at Bowling Green is going to be both a beautiful and chaotic mess to watch. With 30+ bars in a 12 square mile town filled with college kids, expect complete and utter madness. BGSU might truly burn down on March 17th, but it will be in the most fun and obnoxious way possible.

Us Falcons are going to need the luck of the Irish, that much is for sure.

Doing Nothing All Summer Is Okay Too

It's okay to have no plans this summer.

Summer seems to roll around faster and faster every year and the question that's always asked is"what are you doing this summer?" Some people love to answer this question, maybe they have a trip planned to backpack across Europe or have a 2-week vacation in the Bahamas. My point is, everyone seems to have these big summer plans. Some people spend the whole summer traveling and are never even home, but there are always gonna be some people who, like me, have absolutely no plans this summer.

Do I wish I was traveling across Europe or spending a few weeks in the Bahamas? Sure. But in reality, my summer plans include working 5 or 6 days a week. I'm not ashamed of this and I wouldn't say I'm jealous of those traveling because I'm still determined to make the best of my summer.

There is so much pressure everywhere on Instagram and Snapchat to post all the fun things you're doing and to capture the moment. This creates the pressure that you always have to be doing something fun or spontaneous.

Summer should be whatever you want it to be. If you want to spend every day at the beach, do it. If you want to spend every day in bed or at home, that's good too. We all have different definitions of fun.

Summer has just started and everyone should make the most of their summer in their own way. My friends and I always make a bucket list of all the things we want to do by the end of the summer. None of it involves traveling or much planning, it's just little things we can do when we get bored.

Don't feel jealous when you see other people traveling this summer. Make your own fun plans, make a bucket list, and make the most of every day this summer.
