40 Ideas For Your Summer Bucketlist

With summer right around the corner, it's hard to stay in the school mindset. Class has become shopping online for your summer wardrobe, or maybe just scrolling through Pinterest looking at dope summer boards. Nonetheless, as the days keep getting warmer, that summer itch just gets stronger. You can't stop thinking about the million different things you're going to do, or the friends that you'll finally get to see.

Now, if you're anything like me, you've started making a summer bucket list, of everything to do over the incredible summer months. If you haven't, get started immediately! Having a bucket list will encourage you to do more; you'll truly have a more fulfilling summer. So whether your list is almost finished, or you've only just begun, here's 40 things from mine to kickstart the best summer yet!

1. Go camping.

2. Swing from a rope into a lake.

3. Go to the aquarium.

4. Roadtrip with friends.

5. Beach bonfire.

6. Write a book of poetry.

7. Watch the sunrise and sunset.

8. Go skinny dipping.

9. Try a new haircut.

10. Host a bbq/pool party.

11. Lay out on a hammock all day.

12. Find someone who owns a yacht and invite yourself to one of their parties.

13. Participate in a hotdog eating contest.

14. See a drive-in movie.

15. Do a helicopter tour.

16. Go to a music festival.

17. Make breakfast in bed.

18. Get a massage.

19. Go hiking.

20. Spend ALL day at the beach.

21. Bike down the lake.

22. See a play.

23. Go to a fancy brunch.

24. Travel somewhere spontaneous.

25. Get a pet.

26. Go zip lining.

27. Go on a cruise.

28. Snorkel.

29. Do more yoga.

30. Learn more ukulele songs.

31. Stargaze.

32. Buy and lay in a hammock.

33. Do a backflip.

34. Watch a movie every week.

35. Try more exotic foods.

36. Finish a crossword.

37. Morning runs on the beach.

38. Treat yourself to a massage.

39. Try geocaching.

40. Commit to 24 hours of silence.

This last one is my favorite. Something about devoting an entire day to inward thinking intrigues me. Who knows what thoughts I might think, or what adventures I could concoct.

I encourage you to print out this bucket list or start creating one of your own. I have never made one and am stoked to give it a try!

Share it with friends, family or anyone you can think of; summers are more fun when they are spent with those you hold close!

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
