7 Ways To Enjoy The Summer Without Feeling The Heat

7 Ways To Enjoy The Summer Without Feeling The Heat

Don't stay indoors 24/7...but if you do, at least have fun with it

If you're anything like me, then you hate the heat. The words "sunny with temperatures in the high 90s" make you cringe, and you hate wearing a bathing suit. There are a ton of great things about the summer, like a break from school.

But, there is also a crap ton of things that are not good about the summer. Needless to say, May-August is not my favorite time of the year. If you can relate, try these nifty ideas to upstand the hot weather without feeling the heat.

1. Get a job (preferably indoors)

You make some cash, you (hopefully) get some A/C, you can put this on your resume, you get to interact with people, and the day goes by faster. Having a job gives you some sort of purpose to get up in the morning.

2. If you have to be outside, spend it in the water

I love swimming, I'm not a fan of the ocean but regardless, being in the pool is a lot of fun. It keeps me cool and it's fun!

3. Take a road trip

Go somewhere new, maybe Antarctica...it's cold there. Either way, road trips are a ton of fun.

4. Exercise

...inside, or in the pool.

5. Get out of doing stuff

This works especially if you burn easily. Have to do something that involves being outside? Don't do it. Nothing is worth the sunburn.

6. Wear the cute summer clothing you have

Listen, you may not like the season, but I know you don't wear sweatpants all day. Show off that romper or cute shorts and tee shirt you have. Live your life.

7. Do fun indoor things

Yes, a lot of fun happens under the sun, but there are a trillion of opportunities to have fun under a ceiling in a room with air condition

If none of these work, just hang in there. I feel your pain. The key is to remember that it will be cold again someday. Not tomorrow, not in a week or a month, but someday.

Prayers For All Of Hawaii & Those In Path Of Alberto

Kilauea Volcanic Eruption/ Alberto Tropical Storm

On May 3rd of 2018, the Kilauea volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii erupted. Since May 3rd of 2018, there have been more than 600 hundred earthquakes from the volcanic eruption. Lava from the volcano has been shooting up more than 200 ft almost every day and there are no signs of letting up. The Kilauea volcano has been on a rampage for over two weeks now causing many evacuations and caution to this serious volcano.

rd of 1983. All the islands of Hawaii were formed from volcanic activity. As of today, Kilauea has been showing its stuff and pounding down on Hawaii with ash clouds and rocks that linger over the island.

The eruption was said to be from a series of constant earthquakes and since the volcano has had no signs of slowing down or letting up. Many homes have been destroyed as the continuous flow of lava invades communities which has not only caused damage but forced many to fully evacuate their homes.

I will say that this must be the most heartbreaking of them all because of the many lives that have to restarted and memories that will forever just be until Kilauea has fully gone back to sleep. But this does not stop here, the big huge issue is that the lava and gases are edging closer and closer to Hawaii’s Geothermal Plant, which is Hawaii’s source of energy through wind, ocean, and electricity.

As of May 29, 2018, the volcano continues to erupt with lava resulting in immediate evacuations for the safety of the public currently. Road are becoming opened by jagged fissures due to the activity of the volcano. Ash clouds have continued to hover over the Big Island of Hawaii.

In conclusion, though tropical storm Alberto has weakened to a subtropical storm, it still did not waste time wreaking havoc in the south. This storm has been brewing over the last past week now. Many in Alabama have been left without any power as the storm has Subtropical Storm Alberto made its way to landfall Monday afternoon in the Florida Panhandle. The storm has reached Alabama and large areas of Georgia — and eventually into Tennessee and the Carolinas.

It has not been confirmed if the storm has caused any major deaths or injuries, however, it has been said that in North Carolina, a crew of a television news anchor and a photojournalist were killed Monday when a rain uprooted toppling on their SUV as they were covering the storm system.

Two very uncontrollable forces of nature as with tropical storms and hurricanes you will have to ride the storm out until Mother nature has run her course just as with Kilauea’s volcanic activity. All in all, I would just ask as with this being a pure force of nature to pray for those in the pathway of these two natural phenomena that are occurring at this time.
