Summer is fun until you find that there is nothing to do, but no worries! Below is a list of activities to maximize your summer experience and make it one worthwhile!
Explore new music
Whether you’re going on vacation or staying at home, music is always a necessity! Summer should be all about trying new things, and that includes listening to new music. Alec Benjamin’s “Narrated for You” album is one of my personal favorites. Here it is on Spotify, https://open.spotify.com/album/6jKZplJpy21R5lHaYHHjmZ
Go to a state park
Going to the park is the perfect blend of exercise and relaxation. State park’s offer amazing hiking trails and some even have canoes! Bring a friend and enjoy the sun, and maybe you’ll even get a tan! If you are in Birmingham, try https://redmountainpark.org or https://www.alapark.com/oak-mountain-state-park
Reconnect with old friends
It’s hard to keep in contact with your friends during the busy school year; so, if you find that you’ve drifted apart from some friends, shoot them a text and meet up sometime!
Find a job
With more time on your hands, a new job would be the perfect opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills, as well as earn some extra cash! Jobs can be difficult to find, but your local mall should have plenty of openings.
Pick up a new hobby
Use this summer to research an issue you’re passionate about, volunteer somewhere, or maybe even learn a new language! Exploring your interests can keep you occupied and entertained.
Summer 2019 will be amazing!
