Beach Essentials

beachessentials

Wow, we’re already in the month of July! Like most people, I’ve been spending my summer working as much as I can and searching for a new apartment. I’ve been pretty busy, but I have also managed to spend some time relaxing at the beach.

The beach has always been one of my favorite places to visit, and now I live ten minutes away from one! Unfortunately, I typically find myself too caught up in work to be soaking up the sun seaside very often. There’s also traffic and parking to deal with which also deters me from going 24/7.

Anyways, I always like to be prepared when I go to the beach (especially since I like to spend a few hours there), so I thought I’d share my essentials. Of course, it depends on what type of trip you plan on having (a fun day with friends, a relaxing trip by yourself, etc), but I tried to include items that would help either purpose!

Should You Get A Pet?

shouldyougetapet

I, like many other people, wanted a dog when I was a young child (okay, and maybe a pony and a guinea pig and a couple more dogs as well). My parents, like many other parents, didn’t immediately get me one. Why? Because having a pet is a huge responsibility.

While I’m all about people rescuing poor animals from animal shelters and rescue organizations, it’s also important to consider if getting a pet is right for you. It’s not going to be beneficial for you or the animal if you’re going to neglect him/her. I’m not trying to dissuade anyone from getting a pet (if you’re ready, you definitely should because they’re the best!); I’m just saying that you need to think about it beforehand. I’ll even help you with some questions to consider!

Journal Ideas

Who else is addicted to journals? There are so many designs out there-Disney, horoscopes, nature, quotes, superheroes-that I tend to buy more notebooks than I need (especially now that I’m out of school). In the past, I used my journals solely as a diary type of thing, but lately I’ve found so many different ways to utilize them!

Summer Bucket List 2018

While it might not officially be summer yet, it certainly feels like it since my campus job ended and all of my friends are done with college exams. With the nice sunny weather and a work schedule that’s not as chaotic, I’m looking forward to relaxing and spending time doing things that I want to do!

I’ve included a few bucket list items that are completely doable and some that are on the brink of impossible. Who knows what could happen! Also, I unfortunately don’t have much money saved up for a grand adventure at the moment (life expenses and pets and getting a new apartment etc. can really take a chunk out of my income), but mini adventures can be fun too.

What I’m Watching on Netflix

With summer right around the corner, I have more free time to use my Netflix account! There are quite a few series that I’m currently working on (I am so far behind), plus there’s a few that I would love to start. The majority are TV shows, but I do have some movies and documentaries on my list as well.
