Summer.. job, maybe (looking very bad for that at the moment).

Quite frankly, its two weeks into summer and I'm bored to death as I don't usually see my friends unless I'm iin school becuase we live far enough apart that walking is out of the question

It also means far too many baseball games (brother plays). sun burns, and Silver Lake.

Band camp, writing camp, church camp, school camp! Camps almost every day of the week!

My volunteer job starts up again next Wednesday, and I couldn't be happier. I am a donation box attendant at an outdoor theatre. This year they're doing Much Ado About Nothing. Haven't seen that one before, so it's gonna be extra fun watching the dress rehearsal on Sunday. I plan to watch it as many times as I can. Last year I saw the play three times from the beginning and twice after my shift ended, about half-way into the play. This year if I love it as much as last year I'm going to try to do it more.

For me it is a mixture of all those things- Summer Camp, Family Vacations, Pools, and being lazy in addition to all of it.

I could always walk to your house. :twisted: Come on, I don't live THAT far away from you. And walking's good. I might do that someday.

Come on, you people are so pessimistic! Summer is TONS of fun. *ignores the whispers of, "Has Crys finally lost it??"*

Yeah.. I guess sodas have the same effect on me as they do on Mesh. *laughs* But still. If you actually get off your bum, grab some friends, and plan to go somewhere, it can be awesome. Of course, my parents hate spontaneity.. But still. They'll get over it. ;) I plan to have one hell of a time this summer. I'm sick of lounging around at home with nothing to do, so I'm gonna do something about it.

Mesh, don't be surprised if I show up at your door and drag you out into the car. :twisted:

Going home, spending time with my family anf friends, shopping and NO SCHOOL.
The only thing I hate about it is that I have to put up with my brother (he's 9 and I have nicknamed him BRAT) and my sister (shes 12 and I call her moocow or cowmoo) always fighting.
Uniaeca was here
here she was
was she here?
coz she was!

Summer means swimming for 2 hours in the morning (swim team, not fun stuff) then pretty much just hanging out the rest of the day. Also some occasional baby-sitting for my little sister's friends and her sibs. And pet-sitting. Right now we have Tucker staying with us. He's a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who keeps trying to hump my Cavalier Ginger.

Plus I have one week at Camp Henry. I do the "Teen Challenge" program where we go up to the UP and do stuff from Monday night-Friday morning.

Getting extra work time in. So I voted "other." Of course, I do go on vacations and swim...sometimes.

I just realised what else summer means to me this year: My mother bugging me to get a job ¬¬ it's illegal for me to do what I want with my own life in this house hold.

None of thee above.

For me it's heat, poison ivy, starry skies, great sunsets and sex.
I'm not even angry... I'm being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart.
And killed me... And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a fire.

Summer means for me.... July busy and boaring!
The rest of the summer, loughing(sp?) around reading, writing and surfing the net...

Also Family vists (always fun:D), listening to music (exspechally(sp?) when it's in the car all the way up!), Hot days and nights...

That's about it for my summer... the rest is long car trips and looking for houses... (I'm moving again!!)

Summer means hanging out with my mates, being bored, being hungry, being an insomniac, writing, reading, watching, raising havoc. . . .

Summer is... Er... The time of year that friendships are formed, broken, reastablished, broken once again. Stupid things happen, you seem to have no control over your life. Everything reminds you of everything else. You get confused. Oh yeah, and Sun, Sea, Sand, Pools, Parties and Barbeques. And stupidity. But Fun stupidity. Damn, I'm saying all this on a public forum!

All that, and more.
