Well this is the last week of classes and all I have on my mind is the summer. I love summer. The hot days, bright sun and enjoying not having to study for tests. But for most university students, summer means work. Get a job to make enough money to last for the upcoming year. So that’s my plan for the summer, to work. But I think everyone needs to spend the summer doing things that they like to do. So for today’s item: You are to have one amazing summer where you’re not stressed out and you do all the things you enjoy.
If you can’t think of things to do during the summer, I say remember back to when you were a kid and what did you like to do in the summertime? Here’s a list of things that I want to do this summer.
1. Go on roadtrips
2. Go camping

I didn’t see the ocean until I was 16 years old. It was during a trip to Mexico that I was actually able to put my toes in the ocean and say that I have visited an ocean. The reason why it took me so long to actually experience the ocean was the fact that I don’t live anywhere near an ocean. It takes a good 12 hour drive to get to the closest ocean and I had no reason to travel there. Going and seeing the ocean is an amazing thing and most definitely something everyone needs to experience. So for today’s item: You are to go visit the ocean.
Something about the ocean just intrigues me. I love just how huge it is and the fact that so many different creatures live inside it. Also I love the mystery of it. We can look out at the ocean, yet don’t really know what’s going on underneath the surface.
There are so many things that you can do at the ocean. You can play in the sand, go swimming, snorkeling, surfing, sailing, etc. I just wish I lived closer to an ocean so I could visit it more often.
