Top 10 things to do while on summer break

As finals have ended, summer break has begun. However, it's tempting to sit around at home and watch Netflix all day. So I decided I should come up with a list of things to do during summer break.

1. Take summer classes

Behind on credits or want to get a head start? Summer classes are a great way to keep your mind going and busy for summer.

2. Get a job or internship

Need some cash? Or some experience in your field of interest? Summer jobs and internships are great for students and help future careers.

3. Shadow someone in your field of interest

Just like summer jobs and internship, shadowing someone is great because students can more an idea of what they want in the future.

4. Go to the pool

The pool is a great way to kick back and relax, so take some time out of your busy schedule and refresh your self at your local pool.

5. Read a book

I used to read a lot of and now since I'm so busy it's hard to find time for it. However, like me, try to make some time this summer to read a book or something not on your phone.

6. Go out with friends

Just remember to be safe!

7. Spend time with family

Since your home, take some time to spend with your family. Give your parents or someone a hug. Family is important

8. Take a vacation

Get away from reality for a bit and take an adventure someplace new

9. Play with your pets

Play with pets as much as possible. Love them unconditionally

10. Make memories

Live your summer days as if there's no tomorrow

Moreover, summer is one of those moments when you blink, you end up missing it. Enjoy each day and remember to have fun and recharge yourself before going back to school in the fall!

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
