13 Signs You're A Beach Bum

When summer rolls around, you are mainly excited for one thing: the beach! The thought of spending as much time as possible on that glorious stretch of sand fills you with an overwhelming joy that cannot be expressed. And here we are, a few weeks into summer, and you've spent practically all of your free time at the beach. Your friends and family have started categorizing you as the beach bum, but what's wrong with that? The beach is the best place in the world. Who wouldn't want to be a beach bum?

1. You go to the beach whenever you're free.

It's not even a question. Every day you have off from work, or any day to have spare time on your hands, you spend at the beach. Maximizing beach time is of the utmost importance to you.

2. You never unpack your beach bag.

Why would you waste time unpacking your beach bag when you know you're just going to have to back it tomorrow? Just leave a towel, sunscreen, water, and a good book in a backpack all summer and carry it with you everywhere.

3. Your beach chair is always in the car.

Again, why take your beach chair out of the trunk just to put it back? Just leave it in your car, and that way, you will never forget to bring a chair.

4. You're upset if it rains.

You hate when it rains because that means you can't spend the day doing your favorite thing: sitting on the beach.

5. When you're not at the beach you're thinking about the beach.

When you're at work, your daydreams always drift to one thing, and that is the beach. You are already planning out the next time you can go to the beach for the day.

6. You always have sand in your hair.

You always have sand all over you. It's in your hair, on your feet, in your beach bag, and it even manages to get in the sheets on your bed.

7. Your answer to, "What have you been doing all summer?" is "Going to the beach."

People always ask what you've been up to all summer, and there is only one simple answer: "Beachin.'"

8. You have your favorite beach.

Every true beach bum has their go-to beach, as well as their go-to spot to sit on the beach.

9. You go to the beach even if it's not perfect weather.

As the ancient Hawaiians once said, "A bad day at the beach is still better than a day anywhere else."

10. When someone says, "I don't like the beach."

When someone says they don't like the beach, you immediately think that either you heard them wrong or they can't be trusted. It seriously has to be one or the other.

11. You just don't understand how anyone wouldn't want to spend all their time at the beach.

You just can't comprehend why anyone wouldn't want to spend all of their time at the best place in the world.

12. You love the drive to and home from the beach.

You love driving to the beach (down Ocean Parkway, of course!) with the windows down, blasting your favorite tunes, and singing at the top of your lungs.

13. You have a killer beach playlist.

You always have a perfect summer playlist just for driving and going to the beach. And you always encourage whoever your with to play it because you know it's just an awesome playlist.

You spend practically your whole summer at the beach. It's kind of like your second home. It's one of the things you miss the most when you go back to school in the fall, but fear not! You still have a solid two months of rolling around being the beach bum you are. So live it up! And enjoy every moment at the beach.
