It’s that time of the year again! The time of the year that we, as students, have been looking forward to every year since the First grade. Summer! It’s that one time of the year where you can pretty much just relax and do your own thing. I am taking Summer A classes but let’s face it, even the classes are easier in the Summer. Even the professors want a break from the long year of hard work gone into the semesters. I will also be working a part time job with flexible hours. The reasons I want flexible hours for this Summer is because I am determined to travel! I have not traveled anywhere in the past 5 years, honestly, that’s so sad. I love to travel so much and Damn it, I deserve it. So it’s happening.
Places I plan on traveling to. I want to go on a cruise, I have never been on one before nor have I ever been to the Caribbean so that is going to be amazing. Also, it’s motivation to get that Summer body in shape and ready to flaunt. I’d like to find cheap stand by tickets to travel somewhere in the US or maybe purchase a ticket to visit my family in Colombia. I plan on working to save up some money like I usually do in the Summer. Last Summer, I saved over $2,000 and put a down payment on the beautiful Hyundai, Elantra. I’m super obsessed with it till this day. I enjoy working hard and earning money and buying trips and material things to reward myself. I think that’s so healthy to do for yourself. Life should always be balanced with work and play.
I plan on getting more in shape at the gym with my free time and doing random little adventures which I have actually already started. I am beyond excited to be going swimming with the Dolphins next weekend to celebrate the fact that finals and classes are over and that I got some kick ass grades this semester. Getting straight A’s was a promise and goal that I set for myself after last semester and I’m so proud of myself for the amount of effort that I have put into my courses this Spring. I also have a Lana Del Rey concert coming up next week that I’m so excited to go to, she’s one of my favorite artist. Stop thinking that you’re an average person meant to live an average life. These are the best years of your life, the ones were you have the most leisure time and freedom. Go out this Summer and have amazing adventures that you can carry with you for the rest of your life!
