those were the days...

I was sitting in class today (yess I am doing summer school. blahhh) & I was thinking about how uneventful my summer is going to be. Pity party I know. But seriously, I'm going to school, working, & maybe doing an internship..... with zero plans of any trips yet. Becoming an adult sucks! I was thinking about the days in elementary, junior high, & even high school when summers were amazeballs. I literally did nothing. I had no obligations, no responsibilities, no where to be, didn't have to pay for anything.... you get the idea.

Then I got really bored in class & started listing things I loved to do in the summer when I was a kid. Ha weirdo I know, but I'm always thinking about my blog & you people! So here we gooo.
