One of the holidays of the summer is July 4th you can enjoy free fireworks at many places and not spend money. I enjoy shopping for summer clothes is the best, everything from cute sandals to maxi dresses. One of the best parts about summer is that “I’’ve been in the sun, no makeup type of feeling.” Summer comes with endless things to do, without having to worry about the roads or the sun going down at 5 pm. I can pretty much play any sport in the summer, as the weather after the sun goes down is still warm. However not everything about summer is good.
It’s a new beginning, having more freedom and getting to go to places without an adult during summer. Going on first dates with your crush, gossiping to your friends about what happened the next day. Getting so competitive during a sport playing against your bestest friend. Finally being able to get a summer job to possible save money for a car and taking responsibilities to help you for your near future. Not able to wait for homecoming, and prom, then the most important day of your life, graduation.
We get to see our friends and the entire extended family, and there are so many exciting things to see and do in the summer. All of that makes summer my sister’s favourite season, and it really is a fun time for all of us. My siblings and I get to roam and explore and go swimming. My mother also likes it because being with our big family means there are people to assist with the work and other people to talk with; she also gets to see her own brothers and sisters. My father gets to sit with the other men and he doesn’t have to worry about us having enough food for a while.
This summer was filled with great times and a lot of fun with the family. For example, my trip to Cape Cod, Massachusetts. It all started out at 7:30 AM and with me, I was my morning self wearing baggy sweatpants, and an out of control bed head awaiting to be tamed. My sister Sam and I gather our things before we head into grandma’s car for a trip of a lifetime. “Beep beep!” The sound of my grandma's car made us both rush ourselves outside.
We had an enormous amount of fun doing different activities that we did not expect. First, we went swimming in the lake. It was so much fun getting to dive off the diving board and swim with all my friends. I wish we could have stayed in the lake all day because it was my favorite part of the trip. Next we went canoeing down the French Broad River.
A Trip to Lake Michigan This year my family and some friends decided to do something different than our traditional beach vacation. We didn’t want to make the long trip down to Florida to go to the beach for a few days and then have to make the 2-day journey home. So what did we do? We decided to try out the northern beaches of the United States. Moratorium week, just after the fourth of July holiday, was really the only time that the families could get away without having a basketball practice, cross country practice, a baseball game, or worry about work calling.
We also have a couple of activities that happened on land. People can go hiking near the mountain or talk with us to make a scavenger hunt for your friends/family. We mostly have families or couples that come and spend time together with nature. We have gotten many compliments about this being an amazing place and how we can also make this a better experience for others. With the feedback that we get from previous tourist we now know what are some of the best things that many people enjoy.
Whenever I have time, or when I feel like it, I pick up my guitar and start jamming out to some old songs or new. I really enjoy listening to myself when I play, and so do others and I get a lot of positive feedback or some older people would recognize the music I play. Over the summer, my cousin and I would go out fishing, and we would pack food and drinks because we would be gone out all day. Sadly, we didn’t get much catches over the summer and that was it, but it was still an enjoyable time. To cope with the humiliation from not catching much fish, I played video games with my cousins and friends.
Those are all the stories I want to share, and remember either, this summer, I have go through lots of unexpected things and experienced some bad days. Looking at these happy moment and painful days, the satisfy work outcomes and exhausted work process, the respectable teacher but doubtful marriage behavior, the good friend time and heart-broken qureal and fight. This summer is not all happiness moment but not all painful experience, this is the life, I known I am still learning and growing from it. I hope I can known better about my self and learn how to work with different people. Now, the new semester began, I still have more than half a year to enjoin my student time.
