  • Remember Chadwick Boseman

  • Go thrifting

If you are like most college students right now, you’ve already moved into campus and have started to settle in a new (but very different year). If you are anything like me, you realize that for all of the things you remembered to pack, you still managed to forget something. Instead of heading to Walmart or Target, why not take a trip to a local thrift shop?

  • Have a photoshoot

Before the summer weather ends, go outside and take some photos. If you enjoy taking selfies, taking scenery shots, shooting group photos of you and your friends, or just walking around and finding interesting shots, use the summer sunlight to bring out stunning colors in your images. Even if you don’t have a camera, you probably have a phone which means that you can take some new exciting shots before summer weather stops.
