10 Things You Will Want To Do This Summer
Standing in the fine sand

With less than a month left in the semester, I can't help but start planning my summer. I wanted to brainstorm some ideas since summer is my favorite season. A lot of ideas that came to mind focused on trying new things or self-improvement:

1. Roadtrip with mom.

I love to spend some one-on-one time with my mom between our busy work schedules. Visiting a town we have both never been to before would be fun!

2. Go to a concert.

There are so many great concerts during the summer!

3. Volunteer.

This is a great time to give back to your hometown while you're home for the summer. Your local SPCA or YMCA could probably use your help!

4. Go to a beach I've never been to before.

I love the beach and visiting new places.

5. Go hiking.

There are so many places to go hiking and would be a great trip with close friends. Not to mention the endless amount of photo ops!

6. Visit a family member you haven't seen in awhile.

The school year is such a busy time, so the summer is a great time to catch up with a family member or friend you have been wanting to see.

7. Find a new hobby.

It can be photography, baking, or learning to play an instrument!

8. Go to a drive-in movie.

This one is a great date night idea and worth it even if you have to drive an hour to find a drive-in location.

9. Have a summer reading list.

Summer is the time to read books for your own enjoyment, not assigned chapters your professor will quiz you on!

10. Start and finish a DIY project!

Try refurbishing a piece of furniture or make a DIY gift for someone!


A summer job can take up a lot of summer break, but if you plan your summer out, you can still enjoy it! With a bucket list of ideas for your summer, you can take full advantage of the break you have away from classes!

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket. You have the whole day off and no responsibilities besides refilling your popcorn bucket. Now all you have to do is decide on what movie to watch, but you know one movie will not fulfill your need of relaxing all day. A movie marathon is the only answer to your problem. In case you did not know what movie series to start with, try a few of these.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

The decision-makers of Yale's law students have invested in therapy dog sessions in order to reduce stress. In 2011, Yale Law Library had a sign-out sheet for their certified library dog. The 30-minute sessions were equipped with unconditional, stress-busting puppy love.

Law Librarian Blair Kauffman stated that the free, three-day pilot pet therapy program at Yale Law Library launched as "a positive addition to current services offered by the library."

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
