So we have a few weeks of summer left (school starts early for us, man.) and I want to encourage you all to make the most of it. Here are some ideas for a few spontaneous summer activities. :)
1. Be a daily vlogger (for a day.)
You don't have to post it. You don't have to do anything hardly, just capture a day with a video camera (or an ipod or phone or whatever other device you can get your hands on). You'll look back on that day fondly, for sure.
2. Spontaneously go to the gas station.
Haha. I know what you're thinking. WEIRD. But seriously, just run down the street (or bike or drive) and get some totally unhealthy treat at the gas station. Eat it. Go home. Spontaneity is key!
3. Study something.
I've had a problem recently with getting really stir-crazy. Sometimes the best way for me to relax is to do something HARD first. For instance, I just finished my last pre-calculus today. I plan on studying logic for the rest of the summer. You could grab some books at the library, sign up for a community ed class, etc.
4. Have brunch with somebody you haven't seen forever
Make a quiche. Cut up some fruit. Eat. Talk. Laugh. Cry. Pray.
5. Buy some work out clothes.
Go running! Go hiking! Go do some push ups! Activity is awesome! Just kidding. It often is not. Sometimes it stinks. But do it anyway!
6. Clean out your clothes
Usually because I buy a lot of clothes in the summer (shopping sprees with my aunt, duh) and I just get to a point where I HAVE TOO MUCH STUFF. But seriously. If you're the type of person who hangs onto lots of sweaters that you don't really need, hot summer is the perfect time to get annoyed with how many warm clothes you have. And then you get rid of all of it.
7. Start a business.
I teach piano. I lead camps. You can sell flowers. Sell cookies. Make clothes. Mow lawns. Babysit. Extra cash is always nice for back to school shopping!
8. Make food.
I made lemon bars for the first time in at least four years a few days ago. I cut of cauliflower and made a cheesy casserole out of it for the first time yesterday. Summer is a great time to try new recipes.
9. Read some new blogs.
I just found the blog idastreet.com. I'm in LOVE with her apartment!! I could look at pictures of her apartment for dayssssssss. And sometimes a new blog is all you need to get yourself inspired to keep blogging.
10. Get a haircut.
It is so HOT where I live. Like seriously. I had some paper outside for a project and you could feel the paper getting wet from the humidity. NOT COOL, man. Pun totally intended. So I'm really considering hacking my long locks off. What do you guys think? This article made me really consider it.
Do you guys have any other ideas for spontaneity in these last weeks of summer? I'd love some more ideas. Please share!
