How to enjoy the summer

If you’ve successfully passed your courses during the normal school year, you know what comes after that: summer. It’s the greatest time of the year. The sun is shining, the days are beautiful, and the nights are filled with fun. And if you think about it, how many more summers are you going to have to yourself before they are filled with 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. work? In college, you might get an internship or something. So, are you wondering how to properly enjoy the summer?

Play “School’s Out” by Alice Cooper
This is mandatory for the first day of summer vacation. This needs to be blasting for the entire day to get yourself in the ‘I don’t have to do anything’ mood.

Get Other Good Summer Tunes
Make a nice CD with the following songs – Summer of ‘69 by Bryan Adams, Summer in the City by The Lovin’ Spoonful, California Girls by The Beach Boys, and Hot Fun in the Summertime by Sly and the Family Stone.

Find Some Girls (or guys)
Depending on your gender/sexual orientation, it is highly recommended that you find a few people that you like to hang out with. Make good friends with them and maybe even a little bit more. It always makes the summer that much better.

Go Outside
I swear to God, if you spend the 3 best months of the year in the house playing XBox 360, you are going to hate yourself during the winter. Sure, 1 or 2 nights of week of video games is fine, but if you are spending all day and night playing it, you need help.

Play Sports
Not only do they help keep you in shape, it’s really fun too. Play baseball at the park or basketball outside. Something to keep you energized during the day and get some color. If you haven’t tried it, you will learn to like it.

Drink
Nothing beats drinking outside in the summer. Hang at a friends backyard and sleepover there, or even have people over at your house. I’m not talking about Kool Aid either. And although I’m saying this is fun, technically I can’t recommend to you an illegal activity (underage drinking). But…it’s fun (hint hint).

How many summers of freedom do you have left? Don’t waste them sleeping til 4 p.m. and playing video games til 5 a.m.
