School's Out, Summer's In

It's official, I am on summer vacation. This is the last summer vacation I will ever have. When I realized that, it was the scariest thing I ever thought. After 15+ years of school and summer vacations, this is it--next summer I will be in the "real world" and that'll be it.

Basically my life is over.

Not really but I'm just really dramatic.

I was never big on summer, I love school and having a structured schedule. I also was very bitter about this year ending and becoming a senior in college. I had such an amazing year and I didn't want to come home.

I realized that my life is at school now, at college in my college town. I feel like a stranger in my neighborhood. I'm hoping that feeling will only last a few days and things will be back to normal within a few weeks.

I am happy though, on some level, that I'm home. I needed some down time and needed to regroup from the stressful semester and year. 

Summer is time to lay on the beach, read a book, and relax. It's nice to be able to stay out past midnight with your oldest friends, just driving around or hanging out. I like summer to be as low key as possible--going crazy over summer vacation was never my thing.

I like lazy days in the sun with no pressure to do anything too exciting. My life is exciting enough at school, when I'm home on vacation, I like to rest and relax.

This summer I don't have major plans but there is some stuff I've been wanting to get done. I'll be preparing for the school year with sorority events and such, writing for this blog, UChic, and my new gig with Best Friends for Frosting. I'll also be going back to my summer job at a frozen yogurt shop. I want to make this blog bigger than ever before and start some other projects I've been putting off.

I'm officially moving off campus into my own house with three amazing girls so I'll be occupied with paint colors and decorating that this summer also.

With some day trips planned to see my sisters and all this other stuff going on, I'm sure that I'll have a fabulous summer and be back at school in no time!

What are your plans for the summer?
