Hi all I hope your week is starting out well. Mine is going ok but I’m tired (more naps needed). Anyway I wanted to introduce you to a new series I just came up with. It’s about 10 things to do for the month.I plan to do this for each month giving basic ideas about different things that I hope make people smile in spite of our current America and World. So without further ado I give you 10 things: September.

Read a book

So I’ve been working on this one book since maybe June and I am hoping to finish it this month. So for my fellow book lovers and also to my non book lovers I want you to just read one book for the month of september. Not something you have to read for class but something that interests you.

Take a nature walk

While we still can before it gets too chilly. Close to CNU we have the Noland Trail which has a beautiful view of the Mariners Lake. 


Go to a coffee shop

Not a Starbucks or Dunkin. Support the locals. In Newport we have this one in City Center called Aromas. A nice quaint place with specialty drinks like “Snickers Latte” and “European Sipping Chocolate”.

Make a playlist

 My most recent playlist is titled “Junior Year Chill” and it features some Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, Ashe, Smash Mouth, Brantley Gilbert, and Halsey just to name a few. 

Go to the beach

One last time, social distancing and only if you feel comfortable.

Buy something new for your wardrobe

Fall is in the air with PSL and everything spooky trying to make its appearance. Why don’t you go out and buy a new cardigan. 

Start a new show

New school year, new show?

Play a game

On my phone I am currently playing Homescapes and Property Brothers (both having to deal with renovating houses). Then I play solitaire by myself and a card game called Nertz with my friends. 

Go to a Farmers Market

Help support our local farmers and get some delicious fresh fruits and vegetables

Try Something new

Whether that be a new workout, new recipe, or just switching up your everyday routine. 

Alright so that was the first installment of the 10 things series. I hope you enjoyed and see ya in October.

Hi everyone my name is Nicole and I am a senior at CNU. I am majoring in psychology and am currently applying to graduate school to become a licensed counselor. I currently enjoy watching American Horror Story with my roommates and reading.
