1. Camping

There isn't anything like camping to have a blast before you all part ways. Whether you go to the beach or out in the woods, you'll be sure to make another great memory before college.

2. Concerts

This summer has been packed with the most concerts I've ever been to. It is an awesome way to party with everyone a few extra times. Sometimes a smaller group is a better way to go for this, since it gives you more personal time with the friends you are closest with.

3. Boating

Nothing says making memories more than almost dying multiple times out on the river or lake with your best buds. You can make a whole day out of it, or even a weekend if you want to tie in camping.

4. One last visit at each house.

Something that my friends and I have been doing is visiting each house as a group each weekend as a countdown to when the first few of us leave. It is a really fun way to have a last hoorah in each of the places we have spent growing up in.

5. Reliving old memories.

Giphy

We're all adults now, and pretty soon nobody will want to do the really awesome stuff we did when we were young. Nerf? Fort building? Do it now one last time with everybody, and remember the great times you had when you were younger. Nobody besides your best friends will know, so don't be afraid to do the most embarrassing, cringe inducing activities.

6. Just spending time together and talking

Spend time in big groups, spend time in small groups, spend time one on one, and just take it all in. It is very possible that you might not all ever be in the same room again, so embrace the people who have made you who you are, and don't pass up the opportunity to make one more memory.

As you move on and begin to make new friends that will quite possibly be lifelong friends, don't forget about the foundation that your childhood and high school friends gave you, and the comfort level that you have with these friends that not too many other people will be able to give you.

An Open Letter To My College Roommate As I Go Abroad

I may have put "college roommate" in the title, but you'll always be like family to me.

Right now, you're packing your suitcase and asking me advice on what you should and shouldn't bring on vacation. It's finals week, which means in just a few short days, we will both be saying goodbye to State College. Another semester down in the books.

Many people don't know Jul without Aub, or Aub without Jul. Probably because we've been a package deal ever since summer session. I feel like I've known you for a lifetime, so how is it that 2016 was only two years ago?

It's funny because we both get randomly sappy and emotional in person, but on the internet, we love a good roast. I promise I won't do that right now though (maybe).

How can I not be emotional though? In less than a month, I will be living halfway across the world without my sister.

Although I know our random FaceTime's won't come to an end, they will never amount to the past six semesters. As cliche as it is, you've truly been there for me through the thick (thicc) and the thin. Through ugly crying, to weird dancing, to laughing until we grew abs.

I will forever be in awe of how the universe works, bringing people together in the most unexpected ways (thank you, Facebook).

As sad as it will be to part ways for the spring, nothing makes me more excited than the year ahead, when you, Paige, and I will all be living under one roof. For every time I get upset or homesick, I know there will be a hundred happy memories to come.

I just tried to think of some things that I won't miss (to make us less miserable) and I couldn't think of anything. I'll even miss driving in the minivan together, hearing everything through the walls, and getting roasted. You mean so much to me that I'd even kill a cricket spider for you.

Sometimes when people go away for a little while, they worry about how things will change while they're gone. They worry that things may be different when they come back. But those thoughts have never crossed my mind.

We've gone summers and breaks without seeing each other before and we always pick up right where we left off. The only thing that will be different this time is that we won't be rooming together for a semester. But that's nothing we can't handle.

I can't wait to get your daily calls, Snapchats, and funny memes. You're like a sister to me and I'll love you always.

Until senior year,

Jul
