50 Things to do during the Summer


With less than two weeks of school left, many students have mixed feelings about summer. Many are excited for vacations and warm weather, and eager to leave Kennedy behind and move on the High School. Others are more despondent, thinking about friendships separating and leaving 3 years of memories behind. However, since all of us will be out of school during summer break, many of us without vacation plans will spend long days at home, not sure how to spend the 6 hours and 50 minutes that we had spent at school in the past. However, there are many things you can do without needing to leave town. So I present to you, 50 things to do during the summer:


  1. Watch TV/Netflix/other streaming service (during the day instead of watching it till 4 in the morning)
  2. Eat lots of ice cream (or frozen yogurt if you’re trying to be healthy)
  3. Go for a run (burn off the calories from your ice cream)
  4. Do your summer reading and homework (yep responsible)
  5. Write a story (could be 2 pages or 500 who knows)
  6. Take a nap (especially if you just spent 6 hours writing a full novel)
  7. Check social media (if you have accounts)
  8. Buy some office supplies (because office supplies is fun)
  9. Redecorate your room (why not)
