Summer sometimes sucks.
Dear school district,
Where we live, students get 83 days of summer vacation. This long period can be broken up into 3 main stages.
Aaaaaahhhhh. School is finally out, and the first stage begins. My friends and I meet up a lot, the ones I can't meet in person stay in touch with this magical thing called the Internet, and I have big plans about what my vacation will look like. I put away my backpack with relief, not to take it out again for 2 and a half months. Lazy weeks pass, and I am (guiltily) doing nothing productive with my time.
Of course, as I am preoccupied being a couch spud, the work piles up. Initiate phase two, a.k.a chores. Clean the desk, clean the closet, clean the whole dang room. And then, of course, the studying. Math, science, and computer programming (because of my Indian techie dad, duh) all greet me in the morning. Do I do it all? Eh. Eventually, however, a girl gets bored.
*game show voice* Please welcome............stage THREE! Utter boredom, bordering on sadness. Those of you who don't have summer vacations that are almost three months long may not experience this, and lucky you, because I hate it. My advice to you all who also struggle with this is to always do something with your precious time. Blog, or draw, or whatever, as long as it makes you feel the satisfaction of a job well done. And my advice to the school district; make summer only two months long and spread the rest out over the school year in short breaks. It's been proven to help retention!
Another piece of advice I have is to follow my blog!
