Summer was definetly the bored, grouchy, and sweaty version of me. Everyone was getting tanned and doing things with their friends while I was barely surviving the summer sun. So today I’m going to tell you how to stay cool, fresh, and most importantly not bored.
1. Find A Hobby
School’s over and you suddenly have all this past time to do whatever you want. You could take a class or lesson or just plain practice. ex. calligraphy, painting, cooking, swimming, singing, play an instrument, start a blog 😉
2. Get Ahead of School
Get ahead, even if you’re not in summer school. There are so many resources out on the internet like ixl, youtube, or khan academy. Protip: go to the library and read upon on some books to challenge your mind.
3. Go Shopping
If you saved up on birthday or graduation money, this is your solution! Even if you don’t have money, go window shopping. It’s a great way to keep cool and keep up with all the trends.
4. Binge Watch
Netflix, Youtube, TV, your choice. Just make sure not to overdose or you’ll get bored of the options quickly.
5. Find Local Festivities
Find a friend and ask someone to drop you off if you don’t have a car, or feel free to walk if it’s a windy day. Go downtown, to a museum, concert, sale, or a festival.
The end of summer always ends up with me gaining 10 pounds and my brain turned off permanently. But this time, I’m determined. Even though it’s hot, go in a gym or take a class. Maybe even go swimming.
I’m sure your parents wouldn’t mind this one! If you have the whole house to yourself and nothing planned that day:clean. Blast the music and dance your little heiny out!
8. Create a Bucket List
You have to get motivated for this summer and the best way to do that? Create a list. Make new friends, hug a stranger, do a random good deed, volunteer, etc.
