Here Comes the Summer!

Here it comes! The SUMMER! The SUMMER!!!!

So many things are here because of it! And even though we students must suffer through dead week, exams, and the wrap-ups of our semester projects, summer is finally here -- and there are so many things to do during it! There are

                            SONGS TO BE SUNG,

                                                ADVENTURES TO GO ON,

                                                                                  AND NOVELS TO WRITE;

and the best part of it all? We have three entire months to do it in! For most students (whose school dips into the season of summer), that's about
                   eighty-seven days of freedom!!

And it's only four weeks away!

But what songs to listen to on those long road trips to faraway meetings? Or when you can't decide which movie or program to watch? And what things to do when you're at the peak of boredom? Well, you could...

Read these lists? And decide what to do from there. :)
