realtor with the Lockport RealtyUSA office. "Stand in a fountain" was on her to-do list 
for the summer. She'll be sharing that list with ENP readers in a weekly column to start 
Twenty-five year old Jessica Cassick wants to have an eventful summer. There's so much she wants to do. She actually made a list.

The list includes visiting new places, meeting new people, trying new restaurants, seeing new bands. Shinedown. That's a definite. She wants to rock climb, go on the Maid of the Mist, try out a shooting range, go to a play, stand in a fountain and play kickball — among other things.

The kickball part will be easy. She'll be playing for Team East Niagara Post against Team City Hall at Outwater Park on July 1.

Cassick has signed on as an intern at ENP for the summer. She'll be writing a weekly column called "Dog Days," in which she will highlight the things she checks off her summer to-do list.

She says she challenged herself with the list "because I don’t go out much, and change tends to be more and more uncomfortable."

Hailing from "the border of Newfane and Wilson," Cassick is a public communications major at Buffalo State College and a member of the class of 2016 — but expects to continue on for her masters.

She says she wants to write for East Niagara Post "because I love to write, and I support everything it stands for. And as you can see, I really enjoy keeping busy."

Her father's passing last July inspired her to keep busy. "It lit a fire under me that is keeping me pursuing new and interesting things all around me."

The director of Public Affairs at Buff State's radio station, 91.3 WBNY, she organized a weeklong series of 24-hour shifts with hourly interviews geared towards the topic of domestic violence. Cassick is a survivor of abuse and hopes to get others out of the vicious cycle.

Her weekly column, Dog Days, begins June 25. She will likely pen other works for ENP, as well.
