Stuck In Davis This Summer?

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 :)

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!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
