9 Ideas To Help You Plan A Meaningful Summer Vacation


There are a lot of fun things to do in the summer, but it's important that you enjoy yourself with all you can and I promise that you'll see how great it will be!

Say goodbye to the virtual world and connect with real friends.

The first thing we usually do is spending our time to play games, watch Netflix and surf the Internet. Today, almost everyone "eats and sleeps" on the Internet. Some people even put their faces on the phone screen even when they are traveling outside. Meanwhile, you absolutely can put your phone down, shut down your computer, and experience life without the Internet. Make sure you are seeing your real friends and have meaningful activities than just sticking to your tiny phone's screen

Have a picnic with family and friends.

This may sound outdated, but a picnic is still considered to be a lot of fun. Plan to prepare all the necessary food and find somewhere far away from the busy and crowded city, and you will have a truly meaningful picnic with family and friends. This will be a great time for you to look back all the things you have been through, give yourself a fresh treatment by relaxing with your beloved one.

Immerse yourself in the life of nature.

Visit some natural place this summer to see how beautiful the Earth is. Enjoying beautiful outdoor scenes is always a great suggestion for travel enthusiasts. Sleeping outdoors, under millions of stars is a great experience in liberating and refreshing yourself. And you will be connected to nature in a very ... natural way. It can be a lake, a beach, or even just a river. Hiking, cycling and mountain biking can be fun too. Almost everyone rarely walks, while this is a very good activity for your body and your cardiovascular system. Find a park or some trail and walk around, or you can just simply stroll around your neighborhood.

Let yourself feel the peaceful atmosphere that you cannot feel while you are busy studying and working

Do something you have never tried before.

When we were young, summer was a great time to experience new things. Any exploration will bring valuable experience, and why do we ignore such interesting things when we grow up? Since we are older now, we seem to be afraid of things we think that we cannot do it, and we just don't want to take a risk. There are many things to experience and you have all three months to do them. Don't be afraid and lazy! Skydive or windsurf, or take a trip to a place you've never been to ... All can bring you the most unexpected discoveries.

Gardening.

It sounds a bit funny, but this is what I usually do when it comes to summer, and there are many people who make themselves a botanical garden too. You can grow flowers, vegetables, fruits, or even herbs and spices ... and you will be surprised to find that you love life more, and your health also improves positively. It feels pretty good seeing your plants growing.

Exercise everyday.

Summer is the best time to improve body shape. People often choose to lose weight during the summer because it is time for them to rest and plan for themselves. If you start the exercise right now and keep it going until the fall, you will definitely see the results. But remember to maintain it every day

Plan a long vacation or a party.

Daily life habits can be stressful, and a vacation allows you to get rid of all those stresses. You can do whatever you like on your travels and chill out for the busy days of your next job when you get home. Another idea is to organize a small barbecue party and invite friends to have fun, which is one of the great ways to connect and stay in touch with the people you care about.

Watch the summer firework show.

This is an experience you can't miss. Referring to the summer fireworks, perhaps you should not ignore Japan with special firework festivals that attract hundreds of thousands of visitors. Fireworks parties in the sky are held in many provinces and cities nationwide such as Akita, Ibaraki, Nagaoka.

Participate in volunteer work.

It is never too late to help others. You can volunteer in places around your community. That might be just a job like dumping garbage at local parks and forests, but that's your community, so why not help to keep it safe and clean?

Summer is probably the most awaited time of the year for those who are still attending school as it is time for relaxing. Although knowing it is very precious, but while turning away, many of you will have to scream dreadfully because you might have not done anything before you could see that the summer is about to drift away. So don't want to waste your time anymore, and let's have some real fun!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
