It's fun once. And then you kind of want to wash your hands.

2. Ghost stories.

The dead aren't necessarily good watercooler chat.

3. Sleep in a bunkbed.

Because gravity.

4. Handmade friendship bracelets.

Messenger bags are a better look.

It's a KIND of shelter.

9. Skinny dipping!

Again. This is fun in theory. In practice it's a LOT of anxiety.

10. Communicate with friends through hand-written letters.

It's like getting a text five to seven days later!

11. Candy for every meal.

You can try, but come on, consider your teeth.

12. Archery!

Katniss Everdeen is not as easy to live up to as you might think.

13. Spend all day by the lake.

Actually. No, this one we're okay with.

14. Go into the forest to summon spirits.

Unless you're part of a coven. Then game on.
