5 Unusual Summer Activites That You'll Remember

They may not come to mind first, but you'll remember them forever.


1) Finding A Lesser-Known Beach or Lake


Sure, you could go where everyone else is going. But here's something adventurous about grabbing a map and doing a little bit of searching for your own little piece of paradise. They are all over Upstate NY!

2) Building (With Your Own Two Hands)


Take a trip to your local hardware store and get crackin'! It can be large, small, or anything you want it to be. Maybe a new picnic table, or a bench for the porch! You can do a little bit each day in the nice weather, and in the end, you'll have something to admire and remember as it lasts through each season.

3) Splurging On Something With Friends


It can be an item you can all use, a day trip together, or even seats at a nice restaurant. Find something that typically isn't in your budget and everyone can save some money towards it. One of my favorite summer splurges is a nice clubhouse at the Saratoga Race Track. Plus, if you start now, you'll have a good chunk of change by June!

4) Host A (Classy) Party


We're not talking about day-drinking and Domino's, here (no disrespect to either, though.) This summer, send out invitations, formulate a dress code, and put on an evening that everyone will remember for years to come. It doesn't have to be any other occasion besides spending special time with friends. Plus, you'll feel fancy all the while, which everyone can appreciate.

Pitch A Tent (In Your Backyard)


You read that correctly. Embrace the weirdness and home-away-from-home feeling with a tent right behind your house. You can bring friends, your dog, or just go solo with a book and lantern. You may even find some unexpected tranquility, and it sure as hell won't be everybody else's go-to summer plan.

Hittin' the Road Playlist

With the end of August approaching more quickly than many of us would like, the preparation for school is happening in more ways than just one.


The car is all packed. The money you saved (and didn't spend online) from your summer internship is secured quietly in your bank account. The immediate reunion with your long-distance college friends is set. The real question on everyone's minds is: do you have the perfect melody to jam to as you journey back to school?

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.
