The concept of boredom entails an inability to use up present moments in a personally fulfilling way.– Wayne Dyer
So it’s finally summer, meaning that for a lot of you students out there, you have (nearly) three blissful months of school-free days. It’s easy to fall into pattern of unproductivity consisting of Netflix and sleeping, so it’s important to set the goals you’d like to reach by the end of the season. You don’t want to start feeling bored or lonely in the long days to follow. We mean– school isn’t everything. There’s literally the whole rest of your life to explore. But that doesn’t mean that even the best of us don’t need reminders and suggestions for how to make the most out of a time where much isn’t expected of you.
Of course, you can have your lazy days. It’s okay to sleep in or do movie marathons sometimes but you don’t want to throw away a Summer filled with so much potential and possibilities. Just look at all the movies (On second though, don’t.) There’s plenty to do and so many plans you can make for yourself. Being a student on Summer Break is a unique time in your life that you likely won’t ever get again, where you don’t have to work or go to school. Though a lot of students do choose to some form of one of those during their free time.
You’re completely in charge of constructing the Summer you want. So if we were you, we’d whip out a bullet journal and start listing down some goals for before school starts up again in late August. We even set up “game plans” in ours for how we plan to achieve those goals. On to our Bucket List.
