For the past few summers, I have filled my time with violin lessons, volunteering at the library, learning new material in online summer courses, enjoying outdoors, and studying for the SAT.
Now, the summer before college, I have fallen into a slump.
But people have encouraged us newly graduated high school students to enjoy the last summer of our lives before upcoming summers of internships, study abroad programs, and hot stress. So I’m taking a breather in preparation for those times.
Right now, my daily summer schedule looks like this:
- 10:02 AM – wake up
- 10:35 AM – go downstairs for a breakfast of milk and bread. Sometimes cereal.
- 10:45 AM – begin watching childhood cartoons on iPod’s YouTube
- 1:00 PM – go downstairs for a lunch of leftover dinner or spaghetti.
- 1:40 PM – continue the cartoon marathon on iPod’s YouTube
- 4:39 PM – go online
- 5:33 PM – go to the gym
- 6:28 PM – come home to dinner
- 6:54 PM – go upstairs to either continue the cartoon marathon on iPod’s YouTube or go online
- 9:29 PM – go downstairs to join younger siblings in watching the TV
- 10:40 PM – eat a bowl of milk and cereal
- 11:00 PM – watch random videos on iPod’s YouTube
- 11:49 PM – go to bed
There are days when I actually do something productive such as read a book or study for the college’s reasoning placement assessment. Or on very rare occasions, play the violin.
