Summer Bucket List Ideas
Start writing a post

As soon as school gets out, summer sounds like practically the best thing to exist. However, for those of us unfortunate enough to not be going anywhere during these few months, summer can be insanely boring, and most days are spent sitting around doing absolutely nothing but complaining about how bored you are. During one of those days, I decided to compile my ultimate summer bucket list to refer to whenever I have one of those "bored out of my mind" moments and share them to anyone else who may be suffering from nothing to do (besides summer work of course, but who's gonna do that until the day before school starts again?).
