Do you have any recommendations on things to do between high school and college (other than things that cost money)?

  • volunteer - there are hundreds of opportunities around you
  • get a job
  • explore your city - you’d be surprised how much free entertainment you can find. Check your city’s tourism website for local events on the calendar.
  • learn to cook. You don’t need classes. Try some youtube videos and attempt new recipes you’ve never tried. Plan meals around stuff you already have in the kitchen. You will thank yourself for the creativity when you are a starving college student.
  • cook some meals in advance and freeze ‘em.
  • catch up on all the fun reads you’ve been putting off
  • join an adult sports league like ultimate frisbee or basketball or softball. They usually have a sign up fee but are pretty cheap entertainment / exercise.
  • have friends over for game nights / movie nights / potlucks / poker night / clothing swap
  • pick up a hobby and learn online - drag your dad’s old guitar out or learn to knit or draw
  • learn something useful, like how to drive a stick shift or change your own oil or tires
  • go on a photo excursion around town. Try to see things you’ve seen a million times in new ways.
  • blog
  • brush up on your knowledges - use iTunesU or Khan Academy to learn something valuable
  • plant a garden
  • go berry picking and make jams / jellies
  • start exercising if you don’t already, or find some new fun ways to work on your fitness
  • blanket fort. I feel like this needs to be on this list. 
  • reconnect with old friends or family
  • have a yard sale and clean out your closets - it will de-clutter your room and help you pare down for moving to college
  • start learning a new language. There are plenty of free resources online to get you started
  • back yard slip n slide. Alls you need is trashbags, duck tape, dish detergent, and a sprinkler
  • attend a religious service - learn about a faith or denomination different than your own
  • go swimming. Surely someone you know has a personal or neighborhood pool. 
  • become an extreme coupon-er
  • help out someone who needs it - dog sit for your neighbor while they’re on vacation. Take an old lady to the grocery store or doctor. Babysit for your single-mom friend who needs a break.
  • binge watch a tv show you have never seen before
  • re-read your favorite book. in a hammock. hammocks are the greatest.
  • go hiking or for a bike ride
  • people watch. Malls and flea markets are great places for this
