Can you believe summer is almost over? I went back to work on Monday and next Monday, school officially starts for us. I am SUPER excited about this. I know a lot of people love summer, but I'm just not one of them. Sure, I love the beach, vacations and festivals, but one thing I don't love is the heat. Summers get hotter and hotter every year. And in The Bahamas we have summer 98% of the year. Some people envy that, but weather that almost never changes can get depressing after awhile; leaving me longing for sweater weather and steaming mugs of cocoa. If you've been living it up this summer, that's awesome. But if you're like me and mostly stayed in to avoid the heat, then you may feel like you missed out. So here's 5 things I want to do before summer officially ends.
1. Go To The Beach
Can you believe that I didn't go to the beach even once this summer? How crazy is that? I live on an island and visited 4 other islands this summer and still never went to the beach! I'm ashamed!
2. Go To The Movies
I am not in any way a movie person! I have a pretty short attention span but if I go to the movie theatre and it's a blockbuster movie, I'm all in. The movies I have my eyes on are The BlackkKlansman, which is already out and The Hate U Give and Operation Finale. If I'm going to watch a movie I like Marvel comics, Star Wars, psychological or racially drive/historical movies. I finally got to go to see The BlackkKlansman this weekend but I won't go on about how horrible that movie was.
3. Grab Ice Cream with a Friend
I love Froyo but the last time I had it was November of last year because the next day I was terribly sick. I was afraid to go near it again because that nightmare was not worth repeating, but I think I've learned my lesson and I'm ready to have a small amount of it (as long as it's dairy free). I also got some this past weekend after the movie. I stuck to Red Velvet, which a teaspoon of graham crackers and granola, you know, to make it healthy.
5. Go to a Summer festival
I have not been to a single party this summer season. Between travelling and my anxiety from changing jobs, I just haven't been on the social scene much this summer and I know, that's terrible. I've been to small gatherings at friend's homes for drinks but I haven't actually been to a PARTY and that definitely needs to change before summer ends.
