what’s up? it’s brooke :). today i have a really cool post in store. if you couldn’t tell by now, it’s time for an overload of summer posts. today i am going to be sharing 5 things to not do this summer. i’ve never seen a post like this, so give me a big round of applause for being unique and posting twice this week. anywaysssss, i’ll stop rambling and move on to the post.
*before any of you get offended or whatever, please know that this is for comedic purposes only because, 1. my writing sucks and 2. no one ever takes me seriously
1. SKIPPING OUT ON OPPORTUNITIES
okay before we even start let me just feel you that i have a TON of experience when it comes to missing out on big opportunities. i was given the chance to talk to a celebrity (megan fox) but i chickened out. i was sitting at a restaurant when i saw megan fox walk in and sit at the table across from mine. i immediately recognized her and freaked out. but i was too shy to say hi. the point is, when given the chance to do something unique or fun this summer, do it. whether it’s skydiving, taking a summer camp or even cutting your hair, go for it!
2. SETTING UNREALISTIC GOALS
i sort of already touched upon this in my summer goals post, but this is an extension of that. i hateeeee seeing posts where people put things like, ” shed 50 pounds this summer!” or “learn german fluently in a month!”. while having goals for the summer is good, you also have to remember to have fun and not stress yourself out.
3. HAVING A “SUMMER FLING”
well, i have no relationship experience at all but based on examples in my life plus dozens of chick flicks and YA novels, i’ve seen that summer flings never do anyone good. sure, you may have fun for a while but in the end there are broken hearts all across the board. but i’m not saying that you should isolate yourself from guys (or girls) completely. for example, right now i have a crush on this guy but i know nothing will ever happen because school ends in a few days. have fun but to an extent.
4. DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING
this was me the whole school year… oops
yeah i may be a bit of a hypocrite on this one…
don’t get me wrong, laying in bed for hours and watching netflix might seem like the perfect plan for summer but trust me, you’ll regret it. this summer i’m going to be super busy. i’m going to yosemite in june, show choir camp in july, taking summer classes, and running this blog. as you can tell, i’ve got my hands full. but in those little slivers of time i’m going to be so bored. so take up some hobbies this summer! learn how to knit (okay maybe not unless you want to be a grandma), make origami, or even start a business. there are so many things to do!
5. DON’T REGRET
for this point, i’m speaking from a ton of personal experience. i have a super bad habit of letting things slip. and once i realize what i’ve said, i instantly have a wave of regret washing over me. i think about what i could have said or what i shouldn’t have said. it sucks. but i’m making it a point this summer to just let go. sure, i may have said that one stupid thing but it was a mistake. like my favorite quote says, “just keep swimming”. because that’s all you can do. you can’t reverse time (unless you can like doctor strange).
i realyyyyyy hope you guys liked this post! i’m finally starting to get back into my regular posting now that
jail school is basically over.
