Ways To Break a Sweat Outside the Gym

Ways To Break a Sweat Outside the Gym

With summer starting, everyone is working hard to get themselves beach ready. While going to the gym is a great way to workout, there are many other ways to work up a sweat.

Swimming is a great way to workout and stay cool. Whether it's swimming laps, water walking or water aerobics, there are so many ways to get a great workout in the pool. Water sports are another great option. I love playing water volleyball as long as I get the shallow end.

Biking is an exciting way to enjoy the summer scenery and get a great workout in. There are so many parks with beautiful biking trails. If trails aren't your thing, it's always nice going for a bike ride around your development. If you like wheels, but don't have a bike, you can roller blade, roller skate or even skateboard. When participating in these activities, make sure to wear a helmet for added safety.

Golfing is a fun way to get a leisurely workout in. Round up some friends and hit the course. Going to a driving range is also a great way enjoy the fun of golfing without all of the walking.

Believe it or not, you actually do a lot of walking when you visit a theme park. Whether you enjoy small rides or massive coasters, there are options that everyone can enjoy.

With so many great options for outside workouts, get out and take advantage of the warm summer months.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
