15 Things You Need To Do Alone At Least Once In Your 20s

Just make sure you are safe while doing them.

As a young woman, I have always thought that I needed to do things and go out with other people. While there are some things that are not very safe for women to do alone, like go out to the club or bar, there are plenty of things that are safe to do alone. As a matter of fact, there are many things you should do all alone as a young lady in your 20s. Doing these things alone isn't just fun, but you may be able to discover new things about yourself and doing these things may allow you to grow in this prime time.

1. Take yourself out to a nice dinner.

2. Go on a road trip.

3. Travel to a new state you've always wanted to visit. 

4. Go hiking.

5. Go to the movie theater.

6. Get an apartment and live alone.

7. Buy a pet.

8. Go to the beach.

9. Go on a cruise.

10. Take yourself on a shopping spree.

11. Go to a sip and spatter class.

12. Find a new hobby you like to do by yourself.

13. Get a new tattoo or piercing.

14.Get a professional massage.

15. Sit in a coffee shop.

Doing things by yourself, especially in your 20s, can be very refreshing. Sometimes, those things you experience by yourself will be some of your best memories.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
