I realized today that there is so much I want to do. Not just in terms of academia or a future job but just life in general. I want to go places, see things, try new things, talk to new people; I just want to do so much. Whatever you believe, the thing we can all agree on is that we have this life to live, and it can be taken away at any moment. Why put something off till tomorrow when we don't even know if we'll get a tomorrow?

It's inspiring now to see everything outside so lush and healthy; the green blinding my irises with it's vibrant hue. Nature around us is in full bloom and that's how I'm feeling, too! I want to make this summer the best summer I've ever had. Not by doing huge things, not by taking long trips or going somewhere expensive, but by enjoying things I never have before. I want to go to a beach because I haven't been to one in years. I want to take walks around the mountain I live on because I can. I want to throw parties with friends on a hot summer night just because we all feel like hanging out. I want cotton candy & smores & popsicles to sticky my lips, and tiredness to edge around my eyes until I summer myself out. I want to wrap up this summer bug I have and spread it around. I'm going to try my hardest to make this summer one I remember by filling it with memories that etch a place in my heart that can't be forgotten.

With that, I give you a list of things I plan to do this summer. In no particular order...
-Go camping
-Bonfires (yes, more than one)
-Go to an amusement park & spend all day there with friends
-Go to the beach
-Popsicles (I want tons of them stocked in the freezer!)
-Soak up the sun & get a tan!
-Road trip to see my friend in another state
-Fishing trip
-Throw a summer (slip n slide) party
-Go to the Zoo & the huge river you can swim in by the Zoo

Those are just some things I've been thinking about that I really want to get done this summer. I'm sure other things will get added to my mental check list, or random things will take place to fill in spaces of boredom. The thing I really want to do this summer is have fun. Even if only a few of those things on the list happen, I will be happy. I'll be happy because the sun is shining, I'll be with family and friends, and I will be a graduated high school student. If I can't smile after that, what is there to smile about? I feel like I'm sitting here, the clock just ticking, and my excitement level increases with every move of the little hand, until I almost can't sit in my chair anymore.

This is going to be one hell of a summer, and I say bring it on.
