Lazy Days of Summer

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

3. Slip ‘n Slide down in my backyard

4. Meet new people

5. Reconnect with old friends

6. Laugh often

7. Dance in the rain

8. Have an amazing time in Brazil

9. Go to the States

10. Eat ice cream everyday

11. Spend time with my family

12. Go to camp

13. Play football in the park

14. Help other people

15. Talk late into the night

16. Watch the sunrise

17. Chase after the ice cream truck

18. Suntan, not burn

19. Learn a new skill

20. Pick wildflowers

21. Play on hoodoos in Drumheller

22. Enjoy the outdoors

23. Not worry about the future

24. Fall asleep in a hammock

25. Visit an ocean

26. Have breakfast with my girls

27. Go 10 pin bowling

28. Make an impact in someone’s life

Olympic Games

I always enjoy watching the Olympics. It doesn’t matter if it’s the summer or the winter ones, I always find something interesting. I also love how everyone seems to get so into watching these games. People around the world are all tuning into their TV’s cheering on the athletes from their country. I can remember when the Olympics were on during exam week in high school and my brother and I watched the games all day long. If events weren’t live on TV, we watched the commentaries to the games from that day and replays. But how cool would it be to actually go and watch the games live. So for today’s item: You are to attend the Olympic games.

If you’re wanting to attend the Olympic games make sure that you plan early. Plan to buy your tickets at least a year in advance as some of the events sell out quickly.

This year are the summer Olympics in Beijing. Only 133 days to go! I’m especially excited for the winter Olympics in 2010 as their in my home country, Canada!

Here is a video from the 1996 Olympics. It is Dominique Moceanu’s amazing beam routine.

Bringing Home the Bacon

March 25, 2008 at 3:42 pm (Activity) (, , , , )

University courses are almost done, which means that summer is just around the corner.  With summer means the job hunt has begun.  Yes I know, I should have started looking for a job earlier.  But with how things have gone, I just haven’t gotten around to it.  In looking for a job, I guess I’ve become very picky.  I would like to have my evenings and weekends free, along with a job that I enjoy.  So for today’s item:  You are to find a job that you actually enjoy.

If you find a job that you actually enjoy the days seem to go by much faster and you actually look forward to going to work. I personally think that when you find the job that you enjoy, your life will also be better.  You won’t feel grouchy about going to work and instead you feel joy in what you do everyday.  I’ve yet to find my ideal job, and that’s my hope for this summer.  To find a job that I really enjoy, but also pays well.

In my search for the dream job I’ve been searching workopolis.com and monster.ca  I’m still looking, but I’ll let you know when I find that dream summer job.  I know it’s out there, I just have to find it.
