C-Mag Recommends: What to do Over Summer Break

With summer break coming up, students who are vaccinated may need some ideas on fun activities that they can do with their family/friends.


Make jewelry

Making jewelry has become extremely popular over the pandemic. Having fun with friends or family while making beaded rings or necklaces can make a jewelry piece have so much more meaning than if you were to buy it.

Rent out a movie theater with your friends

As people start to become vaccinated and Santa Clara goes down in tiers, movie theaters are opening up. You can rent out a whole theater for $100 and it can be a very fun way to hang out with your friends as the pandemic starts to loosen its restrictions. 

Go thrifting

Buying more clothes is never a problem, but making sure you are shopping sustainably is key. Head to your local thrift stores or venture out and find some vintage shops in the city.

Pick up a book to read

Take time every day and dedicate it to a new romance or fantasy book that can instantly brighten up your day. Here are a couple of recommendations:

  • The Invisible Life of Addie Larue by V.E. Schwab 
  • The Push by Ashley Audrain
  • Writers and Lovers by Lily king
  • The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
  • Devolution by Max Brooks 

Treat yourself to a you-date

Being in touch with yourself is key, and one of the best ways to do that is dedicating a day all to yourself and making yourself feel better. Treat yourself to your favorite foods, desserts and activities. Doing it all by yourself will create a whole new experience in your life.
