The 5 Things That Need To Be On Everyone's Bucket List This Summer

Finally, it's summertime! After this long midwest winter and nonexistent spring, everyone needed summer to come. Although summer is an amazing time of the year, it's also a time where everyone is busy working and being an adult. But, it's also a wonderful time to reflect and experience everything that you have always wanted to do but had no time to do during school.

1. Go camping with friends

What's better than going somewhere with your best friends? Now imagine sitting around the fire roasting marshmallows during one of those warm summer nights under the stars. Even if you go camping in your backyard, there is something about sleeping in a tent with all your friends that is such an amazing summer memory.

2. Stay up to ungodly hours playing board games

Almost everyone has a story of what they swear by was the longest game of monopoly ever. Well, its time create that story with your best friends. Take all the money, make deals, and take over the world. Be aware board games have been known to get very intense and ruin friendships.

3. Movie day

There are a billion movies in this world. Some you will love and some you will question why you ever thought that movie would be good. Take at least one day during the summer to watch every movie that you have wanted to watch but always said you have no time. Who knows you might even fall in love with a movie you never thought you would like.

4. Do something that makes you uncomfortable

A YouTube channel named "Yes Theory" swears that seeking discomfort is the best way to grow. So go try something that makes you want to jump out of your skin or something that you have been too nervous to try.

5. Find yourself

School sucks. It takes apart of us away every year. No matter what it takes this summer really find yourself and grow as a person. Reflect on the past year and become one with you again.

Reflect, celebrate, do something you have never done before, and do your self a favor and make a summer bucket list.

Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Chemistry.com, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).

Chuck And Blair, Blair And Chuck

Why our favorite Gossip Girl couple should not be our relationship goals.


I love Gossip Girl as much as the next person. There is nothing better after a long day than curling up in bed and submerging myself in everything that the Upper East Side and all of it's drama is. Over the course of the seasons I fell in love with the characters, particularly Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. When I first watched the show I idealized the two of them. They were my relationship "goals" and I wanted everything that they had. However, as I went back and watched the show again some time later, after I had had a few years of experience with relationships, I realized that they are most definitely NOT my relationship goals. And they should not be anybody's.

A letter to my friend I’ll love forever

“It’s sad but sometimes when two people come to the end of the road they have to take different paths”

A letter to my friend I’ll love forever

It started way back in 2014, the very first time I saw you, you had long blonde hair and bright green eyes and a smile that was infectious. You where holding my favorite cousins hand, you didn’t say much at first and neither did I.
