Summers in college are hard because you want to make the most of the time you have with your friends, but you're also juggling jobs and other responsibilities. It's so easy to miss high school summers where you didn't have a care in the world. But, these are the best years of our lives, and it's still important to make the most of the last summer you have before your careers start and everybody goes their separate ways.
Here are four ways to make this the best summer ever:
1. Say "yes" more.
Saying yes to random adventures, spontaneous road trips, and mini vacations are the best way to make memories that you never even planned on making! Just say yes more, and you won't regret it.
2. Accept that you will be busy.
Full-time jobs and other life responsibilities mean that you will be busy, and so will your friends. You have to make the most of the free time and plan fun adventures for the times that you all do have off.
3. Make the most of every situation.
Know that memories don't just have to be made with your friends. They can also be made with your family because soon, you will be leaving. Make the most of every situation because even if it doesn't seem like it now, you will look back and miss it.
4. Appreciate all of the little moments.
Appreciate every small ice cream trip and sunset that you see. Not every memory comes from a crazy adventure or vacation-- the little moments typically add up to make a summer that you'll never forget.
