Summer To-Do List

Extreme Boredom Edition.

Summer To-Do List
Suzanne F.

There are multiple stages of summer, and at some point you will reach the stage of complete boredom. When boredom strikes, there is only one way to handle it: complete that summer to-do list that you have been working on for years! Here is a Summer To-Do List: Extreme Boredom Edition that is sure to fill your time with fun, nostalgia, and excitement.

Pet your least-favorite pet. We all have that one pet that gets the least amount of attention. Show him or her some extra T.L.C. when you're as bored as ever.

Make all those delicious foods you find on Pinterest and Tasty videos. Ever wondered if they actually turn out as good as they look in the videos or pictures? Well now is your chance to try them out when your stomach is feeling extra bored.

Clean out your closet. When you have absolutely nothing to do and you're overwhelmed with the leftover clutter in your room, go through your closet. You'll be amazed at how much "fun" there is hiding in there.

Get a job. You had to have hit your peak of boredom to go this low. If you are really suffering, go out and work your empty days away.

Pretend you're crafty. Have a clean closet and the day off of work? Get crafty! Because who doesn't love hand-painted artwork all over their room?

Whip our your middle school recorder. Because some of the best days were those when you had to practice your music 30 minutes a day to fill out that practice log. Good times.

Call your preschool best friend. If you're feeling extra nostalgic, call you first best friend and reminisce on all the good times you had, that is if you can even remember them.

Visit your old teachers. Because who doesn't love reliving middle school distress and high school mess-ups?

Knock on your neighbor's door. They were there for you in Capture the Flag and Man Hunt, so I guess you could say it's time to rekindle that friendship you once had and cherished so deeply.

Sew your dog an outfit. Or two, depending on how much time and love you have for your companion.

Experiment with homemade face masks. You will basically become a dermatologist from the comfort of your own home.

Make a lemondade stand. Secretly spike it if you're THAT bored!

Search for lizard eggs in your backyard. My sister's personal favorite.

Build a fort. This is particularly fun if you're over 18. I encourage everyone to do this at least once this summer with their siblings, whether you're bored or not.

Hold a garage sale. Sell all that junk you found in your closet. Even throw your recorder in there, too!

Plant a garden. Duh, you need somewhere to hide your lizard eggs so your dogs don't get to them.

Wash your car. Better yet, turn this into your job and charge your parents $5 for every car you wash. You'll be loaded in no time!

Prank call people. A middle school favorite. There's no better way to make friendships than to call random people and pretend to be someone you're not.

Read a book. Make your grandparents proud and exercise your mind. If you're really desperate for activity, solve a puzzle, too.

Special thanks to my 21-year-old sister, Mackenzie Murray, for inspiring me to create this bizarre yet accurate summer to-do list. Can't wait to search for lizard eggs, make a fort, and sew the dogs outfits with you!

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.

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!"
