Free time is something that seems foreign to students, but it's summer time and, as they say, the living is easy. Since we all get to live a few months without academic responsibilities hanging over our heads, it gives us a great opportunity to do a lot of things we don't have time for during the school year. 

One of those things, for me, is watching movies. I love stories. I love reading them and watching them, which I don't always have time for during the school year. Though I get my fair share of Netflix, there's a difference in mindless Netflix binging and really choosing to watch a movie. If you have free time this summer, watching a movie is a great way to pass time. If you want to watch some movies but you don't know where to start, you've come to the right place.

Here are some random, but great, movies to watch this summer:

There are some ways to fill your empty summer nights! These are some of my favorite movies (apparently I'm a big Tom Hanks fan) and I hope that they bring you as much joy as they have me. If you're more of a reader, check out this list that I wrote last semester. 

I wish you a happy journey through all of these stories and many relaxing summer days to accompany them. I promise, it's okay to rest. 

Stay great,
