Have you started counting down to summer break yet? I have - and it’s only March! Get out your calendar and the red marker! First it’s two months, then it’s two weeks, and before you know it you have one day until you’re on summer break. If you need some ideas to make the most of your summer, look no further! Take a look at the ideas below to jump-start planning your summer! First, do you have any plans for your summer vacation? Even if you do, schedule in some time for you around all of those doctor's appointments that are scattered around your summer calendar. Self-care is all the rage, and should be a priority during the summer as these are the few months we students get off from school!• A coffee or ice cream get together with one (or a few!) of your friends. Nothing beats the summer heat like some of our favorite cold treats that scream summer, like freeze pops, fro-yo, iced coffee and ice cream! • A movie night with your significant other, best friends, or your family. I look forward to movie night no matter what time of year it is (I admit to watching a few during the school year too...) but summer movies are the best! Make a list of old favorites to re-watch or ones you haven’t seen before; if you don’t want to stay at home, see what’s in theaters and grab some buttered popcorn! • An active outdoor activity (rock climbing, hiking, swimming) or an indoor one if cool air is more your style (Just Dance, yoga, and cleaning are all indoor activities that get you up off of the couch!) You can’t relax all summer...or can you?• Catch up with the shows you didn’t have the chance to watch while studying for finals. I know I miss most of my tv shows during the whole school year, let alone during finals. I love it when I get to watch three or four episodes in a row during the first few days of summer! • Spending time with your family, if you don’t live at home like some of us college students! This is something I can’t wait to do, and summer is the perfect time to reconnect with that younger sibling you left behind, or to reconnect with an older sibling that’s coming back home! • Creating a summer, bucket list! Make a list from a list in your Notes app, to a fancy marker-decorated paper list. There are tons of things you could put on it - going to the pool, getting your nails done, and shooting some hoops with your friends are all ideas free for the taking (Including those I previously mentioned above!). Try asking your friends for some ideas too, if none of these make your list!
