Being at home and away from all of your friends from school can certainly be a buzzkill. Summer is full of experiences, but after a while, it can get pretty old.
Although Summer may seem to be dragging on without the freedom of being at college, it’s important to remember that the school year is just around the corner. The school year may entail the best parties and late-nights with friends, but it also means schoolwork. At the end of the day, we’re all going to college to get a degree, and that’s something to be reminded of.
So, before you get loaded with lots of homework, papers, and projects, make these last few weeks of summer count.
1. Go On Adventures
Summer is prime time for adventures in the sun. Explore the places around town and hang out in the nature around you while you can.
2. Save Money
Even though you want to buy everything in sight with money from work, save a little for the school year-you’ll be thankful when you want to order late-night food or have a spontaneous trip.
3. Go To A Concert
Summer concerts are some of the best concerts. You get to jam to some groovy tunes outside, and what could be better than that?
4. Make Family Time
As much as you want to go out and spend time with friends, make sure to spend time with the family. Soon, you’ll be at school and won’t see them for weeks-or months-at a time.
5. …But Also Make Time For Friends
Your friends from home must also be cherished, because you won’t have the chance to see them a lot during the school year. Take a few nights off of work or plan a lunch date with your high school buds before you head off to school.
6. Hit The Beach
Final call to soak up the sun and be a beach bum for hours on end. Grab your crew and some speakers for a casual hangout by the ocean.
7. Sleep In
At school, you won’t have time to sleep between studying, parties, and horrible 8am classes. Remember to catch those Z’s, because extra sleep never hurt anybody.
8. Be Spontaneous
Make a quick last minute decision to go on a road trip, hike a mountain, or camp out-because spontaneous trips are always the best trips.
9. Take Risks
Have you been dying to get that tattoo? How about skydiving or zip-lining? Just go for it! You’ll have plenty of stories to tell when you get back to school-and the memories you’ll never forget.
10. Enjoy Yourself
Most of all, enjoy the Summer. Cherish the lemonade stands, Summer heat, cook-outs, day parties, and music festivals. Relax, don’t stress, and surround yourself with good people. Don’t forget to have fun and let loose-after all, Summer only comes around once a year.
