Summer 2023 Bucket list

When it comes to summer bucket list ideas, I always cannot think of anything. I always think of the same few things every year. Now that it is almost summer, I have composed a list of the best and most unique bucket list ideas to add some fun to your summer. I sent out a poll to a few ADM students for their input on the matter.
  1. Go visit the Science Center: I know it might sound obvious, but the Science Center is a fun way to beat the heat and spend an afternoon with friends. It is open Thursday-Sunday from 9 am to 4 pm. Tickets are $15 per person over the age of 12.
  2. Go to Mcdonald’s late at night: Bonus points if you dress up. Going places with your friends late at night is always a fun time. With later curfews and longer days, summer makes the best time to go on nighttime adventures.
  3. learn a new skill (backflip): You know that one skill or hobby that you’ve always wanted to pick up? Well, there’s no time like the present. Watch those how-to videos on YouTube, ask around your friends and family and try your hand at whatever you want.
  4. Practice your pyrotechnic skills (WITH THE SUPERVISION OF AN ADULT): With the Fourth of July right around the corner, now is a good time to light up some fireworks. From tiny poppers to giant explosions of fire, there is truly something for everyone.
  5. Do something that gets you out of your comfort zone: High school is the time to learn, grow, make mistakes and make memories. You cannot do those if you stay in your safe bubble. Go do new things. You might just find something you like.
  6. Find a way to connect with nature: Put your phone down and spend some quality time with your friends and family in nature. Go on a hike, Go camping, Build a bonfire or just take 5 minutes to listen to the sounds of the wind moving through the trees. The world moves fast, take a minute to enjoy where you are right now.
In all you do, be present. Live in the moment. We get so caught up in planning for the future. So take some time to be in the here and now.
