Spending your WHOLE summer in Davis? Wondering if it'll suck?

Stuck In Davis This Summer?
Daisy Cuevas

This will be my second time spending summer here in Davis. Below are some things I've enjoyed doing while being here:

1. Summer courses

Summer school isn't the worst thing in the world. I know we all need a break but there are some advantages to it! See below.

- You can take one or two classes at a time (pace motivates you to stay on top of everything)

- You get to meet new people! Everyone is most likely going through the same situation as you and are perhaps feeling like they are the only ones stuck in Davis, this makes it easy to bond with classmates. You guys can suffer through the pain together (yay).

-You can actually get a good grade. Since you have more time and less distractions in comparison to a regular quarter you have a high chance of earning an A++.

-Get them letters of recommendation. Get to ACTUALLY know your professors and TAs. Last summer I got to know my instructor really well! After the course ended we went out for some coffee and I got a lot of great advice. Now when I see her on campus she knows who I am and we joke all the time!

2. Get a job

Since a lot of people are out of town, many places including on campus are looking for students to fill in those positions! Earning some cash during the summer is always great!

3. State Fair

Lucky for us, we aren't too far from the capital of California. Check out the state fair in Sacramento from July 14th and ending on July 30th!

4. Go to a Concert

There's a lot of concerts happening this summer, we got Lady Gaga, Khalid and Kendrick coming to Sacramento. Get some tickets and enjoy some music! P.s I will be seeing Kendrick in August, join me!

5. Enjoy the little things

Most importantly, focus on YOU! Get the chance to do things you haven't done in a while such as your hobbies or traveling around Northern California! Set yourself some goals for this summer and as you start checking items off, you will realize this summer was a productive one.

Although it's hot as sh** in Davis during the summer, it still isn't the worst thing ever. Explore new things, learn more about yourself and look at the bright side of things :)

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

About a year ago, I began my own fitness journey. Growing up, I had played soccer and kept busy, but after an injury cut my soccer career short I suddenly became very inactive. It took years of misfires before I finally found a new active passion for weight lifting. Getting started is never easy, and setting up for success is the best plan of action to assist anyone in your life who is thinking about starting their own journey. These are a few items you can gift for the fitness rookie in your life:

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

The beaches are starting to open up. At least in Cape Cod, where my family and I were able to vacation this week. Near our house, we have a bit of a private beach, which is great.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.
