Enough countdowns to Fall already.

Spring, summer, winter, and fall. All the seasons seem to mesh together day by day. But when you step back, it is so easy to see how different they each are. And with so many different people in this world and four completely unique seasons, the discussion about what season is the best is never-ending. I know that every season has its perks and positives, but summertime definitely takes the cake.

Of course, the best season is an opinion and to each their own, but here's why there should be no debating that summer is the best.

1. Sunny, 85 degree days

Need I say more? The warmer the day, the happier I am. Summer temperatures are what makes this season worth waiting for.

2. Beach trips, duh!

Nothing beats the beach. Nothing. So, summer automatically wins in my book with all of the beach trips it makes possible.

3. Late, (warm) nights

Did I say warm? There's nothing better than walking outside to your car to go home and getting hit with the summer air late at night.

4. School's out ~forever~

Or maybe just for a little bit. Those couple months do feel like forever for a while, though.

5. Driving with the windows down

Music up, windows down. I love the summer breeze through the car windows. I know that you "can" roll your windows down during the fall and spring, but summer is the only time when you are guaranteed to not get cold from any breeze.

6. Getting your summer glow

Everybody feels better with a tan, right?

7. Classic summer BBQs

There is only one season that brings to mind parties with family and friends outside around the grill, pool, and patio: summer. These parties and the memories they make are what set summer apart.

8. Bonfires and s'mores

With these BBQs in mind, bonfires and s'mores are never far behind. You know it's summer when your marshmallow has just caught on fire again and you really don't even care.

9. Less worries, more summer days

The dog days of summer have a way of taking away all of life's troubles. I mean how can you complain when it's summer?

If I could live in a world where it's summer every day, I would. Especially if I could spend all my days on the beach.

High School Summer Vs. College Summer

Summer isn't all fun and games anymore.

Summer: the most wonderful time of the year. School’s out, obligations are at an all-time low, and life is simple. The only problem - I’m not in high school anymore. This naïve cupcake phase of life is now over, thanks to you, college. Now, free time is a foreign concept to myself along with my peers; summer's not all fun and games as it was in previous years.

School’s out? Ha, you THOUGHT.

What time is it? Summer (school) time! When the final bell rang on the last day of high school, we all jumped for joy and anticipated summer’s freedom filled with the luxurious free time that displaces class time. When you finished your last final in college, you might as well buy class materials for your nearly approaching summer semester. Unlike the good old high school days, summer marks the start for even more time to incorporate school: particularly, summer school. Here lie students who are retaking failed courses and/or those who are behind on classes and need to get ahead. School’s out, scream and shout? You got it all wrong, High School Musical.

Time to intern!

Not only is summer “break” a good time to take some extra classes, but it’s also a perfect time to intern. That’s right, no sleeping in ‘til noon! Don’t forget to set those alarms because college students have to be up and running to gain work experience for their future careers. College students sometimes even endure these long days without any pay, but you gotta do what you gotta do to lock in a post-college job at that ideal company. High school students: props to you if you intern over the summer, I just see it more often among college kids.

Work, work, work.

I had a summer job in high school, but I didn’t work nearly as much as I do now as a college student. Summer is the optimal time to stack up on dollar bills in your savings account. You need money for those ridiculously pricey textbooks (opened quite less often than you’d think), groceries, housing, spending money, and other miscellaneous college expenses. Yeah, you can always work doing the school year, but juggling that along with classes, extracurricular activities, and an eventful social life can be pretty exhausting. Also, it can deter you from getting decent grades (which is why you're in college in the first place).

Vacation? More like no-cation.

Ah, do I miss those summers where I’d be at the beach for weeks on end. With summer classes, a job, and an internship, vacation is just time I no longer have. You can’t just request time off from class, internships, and work! Other (and more important) matters demand your time and effort. If you're lucky, a quick, cheap weekend getaway is you're best bet.

5 Easy Ways To Make This Summer The Best Summer

Just a few changes can make a huge difference.

Summer is a great time for students to catch up on sleep, relax, and prepare for the next semesters ahead. While it should be a relaxing time, it can also be a period that allows you to reinvent yourself. Unless you are taking a full schedule of classes over the summer, you will probably have some downtime that will allow you to do a lot. I like to think of summers as months where you can create good habits that can carry through to the next years of your life. Here are some things you can do to make your time off as a student worthwhile because after all, productivity is important!

1. Exercise And Workout!

If you are not working all the time or in classes all day, there is no excuse for you not to work out. I know that during hectic semesters with 5 classes and extracurricular activities ruling lives, it can be hard for students to find the time to exercise regularly. But this summer, you have the power to hit the gym as many times as you want or can.

2. Takes Some Classes To Earn More Credits

I don't think people should overload their brains with a ton of classes over the summer, because the school year is stressful enough. However, it is smart to take one or two classes during the summer to keep your brain active and to catch up on credits that you may still need. If you think you'll have a very busy fall and spring schedule, then taking some courses in the summer will definitely take a load off of those packed schedules.

3. Find A Hobby To Dive Into

Personally, during the school year, I get extremely wrapped up In academics and I do not usually allow myself time to do anything I truly enjoy. Summer is a time where I play the piano, write poems, and paint. These things relax me and make me happy. I know I should incorporate these things into my school year, but it is hard to when there is always so much to do. You can take time to do things you enjoy or to find new hobbies you might like!

4. Master Nutrition And Your Chef Skills

Figure out what is good for your body and how you can cook those things. If you learn new recipes and perfect them during the summer, you will be able to make those meals during the school year, which can lead to a much healthier lifestyle during the year. Now that you have more time to cook, take advantage of it and become a top chef!

5. Spend Time With The Ones You Love

I know how busy everyone can get during the year. It is often easy to forget about having fun with the people you love and it is easy to get caught up on schoolwork. Canceled plans with friends and family are not uncommon during the school year. This summer, you may have more time to relax and hang out with the people who are important to you. Make it a goal to spend time with these people and to make many memories! Travel to new places or explore the ones you have already been to!

Hopefully, you can find ways to make this summer productive and to be happy with your life!
