So it's summer...or at least it's hot enough to be...and I thought that I would write about some tips to having the Best Summer ever. Four easy steps. seriously, it's THAT easy.
Tip 1: Hit the Road.
Get out and enjoy the great unknown. Go see a friend you haven't seen in forever, or visit a city you've always wanted to visit. This tip requires a few things: 1.) Another Person. 2.) A Car. 3.) Some Cash. Have fun. Plan out the route, and go have an adventure. They don't take long, and you can even do small day trips if you're chicken.
Tip 2: Hit the Books.
Durring the school year, the last thing we want to do is read books. So reading on our own time gets to be a bit impossible. Loosing yourself in a book can be the best thing during a dull day. Summer doesn't have perfect weather ALL the time. Plus, reading helps preserve brain power and knowledge. Go get smarter.
Tip 3: Hit the Pool.
Water is your friend. Nothing says Summer like swimming, laying out in the sun, trips to the Dunes, or Ocean front. Let the water take control and move you into Summerland. Lakes are always fun and the waves aren't too huge for those afraid of giant surf. Being a native to the European-white skinned people, tanning isn't my strong-suit. I mainly burn, and then that burn turns to brownish. Think of me as a marshmallow. White, but when exposed to extreme heat...keep a good eye on it, or it will burst into flames. Slow and steady gets it brown. It takes me about 3 months. Just in time for Fall...
Tip 4: Hit the Outdoors.
The outdoors are calling your name. Forest, trails, rocks, rivers, mountains and fresh air. These are the things of The Great Outdoors. Go camping with some friends. There are plenty of places to camp, just hit up the good ol' Google. The best part about this tip, is that you get away. It is important to get away from the busy life, and just escape it all. The outdoors will do you good. Trust me.
Getting ambitious? Want to do all Four? Go camping out west, or where ever is far for you. This will take care of tip 1 and 4. Make sure you camp near a lake, so that you can knock out tip 3, and take a book along with you to read in the car, or before you hit the hay. Make this summer, a great summer. Peace to all of you, and God Bless.
