Ultimate Summer Bucket List
Siren Communications

Summer -- something we all look forward to the entire school year. It means going back to hometown friends, a job (money, finally), the beach or pool, warm weather, and the most important part -- no classes!

This summer try to check these things off of your list, you may just end up having the most fun summer of your life!

1. Go on a vacation to a lake.

Boating is one of the most fun things to do, and doing it during the summer makes it that much better. With the warm sun and refreshing water, nothing is better.

2. Learn how to surf.

If you live somewhere like SoCal or Hawaii, there seems to be surfers left and right. this should be on everyone's bucket lists, at least trying it once shows that you tried... even if it doesn't work out (like it didn't for me)

3. Go to Disneyland

-If you're a Disney fanatic like me, then there's nothing better than going to the happiest place on earth, during the warmest days of the year. Imagine walking around, riding roller coasters, and watching fireworks while being under the warm sun -- nothing better.

4. Jump off a bridge.

If you have access to a local bridge into a lake or ocean, take that opportunity to check this off of your list! It's always fun to take videos jumping off high cliffs or bridges and looking back at the videos, Afterwards, the thrill is one you've never had before!

5. Go on a long hike.

Hikes are definitely a more fun way of staying active. Whether you are more active or less active, a short or long hike will both be rewarding, especially if the hike leads to a great view (and cute pictures, of course).

6. Scuba diving.

If you haven't been certified for scuba diving, then you should definitely find a local place to take a class. Scuba diving is one of the most interesting and thrilling things to do, and it can end up being some of the most amazing experiences of your life.

7. Go on vacation with a group of friends.

Vacationing with your family is always fun, but nothing like having your best friends by your side while raging internationally. Cabo has always been a dream of mine with all of my friends, and making it happen sounds like the most fun time of our lives! Being with your friends partying, adventuring and bonding is definitely something to put on your bucket list for 2016.

8. Go to a fair.

Cotton candy, ice cream, turkey legs, fried food, rides, concerts, and free stuff... who doesn't like the sound of that? Fairs are one of the highlights of every summer, and experiencing them every year is something I look forward to. The fair is filled with amazing (but unhealthy) food, pretty lights, exciting things, and fun times. Opening day is soon, so make sure to get a ticket to your local fair!

9. Have a bonfire at the beach.

-When thinking of summer I imagine spending the entire day at the beach and sitting around a bonfire on the beach with friends afterwards. These nights end up having the best memories. Bon fires are a major part of summer and I don't think it would be the same without them.

10. Go on a shopping spree.

During the school year we are so busy with classes and everything else that we don't have time (or money) to ever buy ourselves anything nice. This summer try to treat yourself a few times with the money you start to make from working. Go to the closest big city and nice mall, and shop your little heart out! Buy some new swimsuits, outfits, shoes, whatever your heart desires.

Let's make summer 2016 one we will never forget!

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
