It's summertime, and that means it's time for the family road trip. After Mom packed up the cooler and Dad loaded up the trunk, my siblings and I crammed ourselves into the back of the car.

In the past several months, a handful of Penn alums have qualified for the Olympics. Wharton student, Anthony Quill '22, has recently qualified for Olympic track and field after an impressive Netflix marathon time of 4 days, 6 hours, 23 minutes, and 44 seconds.
So, I've been going a little stir crazy from my childhood bedroom and am looking for something to do to pass the time. I want to be clear; I have been doing things. Watching Netflix and sniffing glue are worthwhile pastimes. There are only 8 weeks until I'm back in school, and since I can't find a professional job that will hire me, I thought I might be internship material.
The 4th of July marks the day that we Americans celebrate our freedoms — while some hold their annual reading of the Declaration of Independence, others light up the sky with fireworks.

Since Penn freshman (now rising sophomore), Erika Smithson (W '24), didn't get a summer internship, she decided to go through last year's to-do list to find something productive to do. In her search, she found many things she had done but had forgotten to cross off including, "get into Penn," and others which she would have to erase because they could never happen, such as, "get into Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Princeton, or Colombia."

I know you wanted to go all out for Father's Day, but sometimes you're lazy, broke, or both. What to do? Time to whip out old reliable: I'm talking about Breakfast in Bed. I know what you're thinking: "But, I'm 20 years old, I can't do Breakfast in Bed anymore." Say's who? I still tell my parents I believe in Santa Claus, and guess what? Santa keeps coming.
Father's Day is coming up, and I'm willing to bet you haven't thought of what to get your Dad yet. Fortunately, there's still time to string together the one thing that Dad has been hoping for: that idealized fantasy picnic shown during the side effects of every medication ad.
Home only a few weeks, your parents are already getting on your nerves, telling you to get out more, clean your room, and set the table for dinner.

We all have embarrassing moments from childhood preserved by unflattering pictures of dance recitals, pairs of patterned pants shoved to the back of a drawer, and of course, our all too eccentric, overly-bright room decor left to make us cringe upon our return from college.
