Staff Picks: Summer plans

Summer is so close we can almost taste it. Check out our staff’s summer plans below.

Melissa Boneta, news editor, said:

“I plan to work all summer to replenish my funds for my senior year here at NSU. Hopefully I can get out of the house, go to the beach and spend some nights on the town. I also have to do adult things like find a new place to live and apply for internships in my field. I need to take better care of myself and set up a successful life plan so I have minimal stress next school year. So, the plan for the summer is to relax and replenish before I enter my final year of undergrad *heart eyes emoji*.”

Grace Ducanis, co-editor-in-chief, said:

“For the first part of the summer, I’m going to enjoy spending time with my family and friends and also continue to freelance and intern. Then it’s off to Lausanne, Switzerland at the beginning of August. From Lausanne, I hope to visit Italy and other countries in Europe. I’ve never been off the continent, so I’m beyond excited to get beyond the Atlantic. Aufwiedersehen, ciao and adieu.”

 Jacqueline Lytle, co-editor-in-chief, said:

“This summer, I’ll be staying in Fort Lauderdale to begin my master’s in composition, rhetoric and digital media at NSU. While my summer plans will mainly consist of studying and working – as if that’s not fun enough – I also plan on spending some time in Pennsylvania with family and friends and traveling to a couple places in or out of the U.S., per my bank account’s approval.”

Danielle Pucillo, multimedia manager, said:

“I’m going to take advantage of my light schedule this summer in order to pursue my passion for photography and art. I’d like to travel and set up a small office as well. I’m hoping to go kayaking, and go on a road trip heading north towards upstate New York. I’m also going to be working on creating classes for the Multimedia Camp hosted by Student Media.”

Brianna Walker, news intern, said:

“I plan on looking for a job after graduating and focus on living life to the fullest. At this point in my life the sky’s the limit.”

Jeweliana Register, arts and entertainment editor, said:

“I plan on going back home for the summer and interning locally. I also hope to find a few freelance opportunities to help me save up for my senior year here at NSU. I want to be able to travel as well and also spend time with friends and family back home.”

Carli Lutz, chief of visual design, said:

I don’t really have that many plans for this summer, but I know I will for sure be spending most of it making lots and lots of art for my portfolio, and hopefully even making some extra money by selling my art online. I’ll mostly be staying inside to hide my pale self from the bright, scary sun so that I don’t turn into a terrifying lobster girl.”

Trenton Strafaci, sports intern, said:

“I am planning on going on a graduation trip with my family to California to play golf at Cypress Point, Pebble Beach and Spyglass. I also plan on caddying for my brother in some of his big golf tournaments and writing articles about the tournaments.”

Nicole Chavannes, copy editor, said:

“This summer will be an exciting one for my family, as both my brother and my cousin are getting married – two separate weddings, in case that wasn’t obvious – and I will be a bridesmaid for my future sister-in-law. So, I’m getting ready to go on a weekend trip to the Keys for her bachelorette weekend, as well as saving up all the money I can so I can spend it all on fancy dresses, bridesmaid things and gifts. I’m just hoping my bank account holds up.”
