3 Things You Have to Try This Summer! 1. Work!

By Iris Mosah Ridgeway High School, 16-years-old

Whether it's something as lax as starting a babysitting service with your best friends or delivering pizza for Papa John's, engaging in some type of work during the summer not only gives you a little extra dough to spend during your weekly window-shopping trip to the mall with your buds, it also allows you to develop your work-ethic and money-managing skills. You'll be out of school and job-hunting before you know it, and that part-time gig you had at Hollister when you were 16-years-old will really feel worth it!

2. Release the Drama!

Summer is a well-deserved and highly-anticipated break from the stress of school, but that's not limited to homework! Refrain from Facebook-status-slamming the girl from your English class with whom you have troubled history. It's not worth it. You're not obliged to see her everyday anymore, and there's no point in dredging up the past just to stir up trouble. You'll just look insecure and petty.

3. Try Something Out of Your Element!

Let the unstrict, go-with-the-flow feel of summer bring out your free-spirited side. Instead of sitting around at the house watching re-runs and twiddling your thumbs, call up a group of friends and hit a teen Latin dance class, or ride a horse-drawn carriage downtown to further discover your city. Plan a picnic with a group of friends at a local park, even if you guys replace the PB&J sandwiches with Big Macs. The movies and mall are fun, familiar hang-out spots, but the spontenaity and rush of these play-dates will make for wonderful summer memories!
