50 Things To Do Over The Summer

So, right now it's June, but you have until the middle of August to do mostly...well...nothing!

I know you've been waiting for this and now that it's here, you realize you're bored, lazy and unproductive.

Here's a list of 50 things you can do over the Summer:

1. Develop a daily routine—follow it! 

2. Start a blog. 

3. Learn photography. 

4. Meditate. 

5. Go to the gym regularly. 

6. Go for a swim. 

7. Start doing Yoga. 

8. Go on a road trip with a few close friends. 

9. Learn how to cook. 

10. Clean your room—but, like, properly. 

11. Do charity work. 

12. Sort out your clothes, accessories, and shoes by rearranging them. 

13. Start a daily journal. 

14. Watch a documentary (NOT a Netflix one).

16. Learn a language. 

17. Learn to draw.

31. Help the homeless. 

32. Enroll in a kickboxing class. 

33.  Do karate. 

34. Learn how to read tarot cards (because why not?)!

35. Learn how to use Adobe Photoshop. 

36. Learn how to edit music. 

37. Learn how to edit videos—make vlogs! 

38. Learn about a new country. 

39. Explore your city a little more. 

40. Arrange a photoshoot with your best friend. 

41. Improve your writing skills. 

42. Work on your resume. 

43. Have a karaoke night with your friends. 

44. Have a sleepover with your friends. 

45. Learn a new form of dance. 

46. Take time to educate yourself—become politically aware. 

47. Build your social skills. 

48. Start a food blog! 

49. Go on a camping trip. 

50. Do a short internship/job shadowing. 

That's my list of the things you can do over the summer. From now on, every time you sit on the couch aimlessly scrolling through your social media asking yourself why you have nothing to do, know that there's always something out there. You ALWAYS have something to do.

Remember, you have three months. Use this time to develop as a person, discover yourself, and create a healthy lifestyle.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
