Top 10 ways to spend your last days of freedom:
10) Shopping: Finagle your parents into shopping with you, subtly dropping hints about how you’ll be all on your own for a couple months.
9) Enjoy the Weather: With a recent bout of rainstorms, I find I best appreciate the lightning while sitting under a tree or next to a light pole. But do whatever works for you. (Appreciate at your own risk).
Hometown Friends: Hang out with those people who you no longer have to prove anything to. So what if you do weird voices, awkward dances, or make the same jokes that have annoyed them for years. As soon as you get to campus, those jokes will be pristine.
7) Laze about: [Author felt too lazy to elaborate]
6) Read: Dig into that stack of books that have been recommended for months now. That way, when you enter classes with half of the Hunger Games read, you’ll be so conflicted over whether you should do work or read that neither will get done. The Campaign comes highly recommended.

5) Movies: Be that hip, gnat of a personality that always asks people if they’ve seen the latest blockbusters–be sure to finish off with the flippant “Oh, it’s pretty good. You should check it out.”
4) Shark Week: Miss the olympics? Here’s another way to blow your time in front of a tv!
3) For those in relationships: Appreciate the time you have together!
2) For those single ladies (and gents): revel in your freedom! (Because this is a feel-good blog post, and I don’t want anyone to feel like they’re missing out.)
1)Run a 5k whilst undergoing intestinal distress: Ok, this may come more from personal experience. And this really shouldn’t be advised. Maybe I have the numbers backwards…
Oh wait, here’s the real number one.
#1) Political Debates: ‘Tis the season to get into arguments with friends, family, and strangers trying to escape your biting debate points over the various candidates views of the economic situation, Healthcare reform, and tax policy. Just remember, to end any such argument in a friendly manner, reaffirm that the whole system is broke, and that things were better back in the day. You, before all those immigrants came across the pond (1492 I believe), when it was just the lands, the tribes, and a noticeable absence of Super PACs.
