Mistress of Darkness
Well, summer's officially here!

My first official act of being out of school/ summer was going to an Anime Con, which was great.

But in the future, this summer, I'm supposed to be working in an office as a receptionist (I'm in high school, can't you tell? ^_~). Hopefully it'll keep me busy this summer and I'll make money, too. ^.^ I'm also going to Boston for a week at the end of August with my family. I can't wait.

Oh yeah, and I have to read two books for school, but I don't mind - I like reading. =D

Enough about me, what are you going to do this summer/ what are your plans?

summer rocks, don't post to much to busy
Mistress of Darkness
Yes, Mahou, I just got out. Unlike all the other schools in the country, mine begins two days after labor day. I go to public school. State and federal requirements make us go to school for 180 days. Do the math. *sigh*

Now if I was in college, I'd already have been out for a month or something. But I'm not in college. XD
Elderberry
Hehe. I'm still in school, actually. I have another 2 days. happy.gif One more final to take, and then a half day that's just kind of...there...smile.gif
Quistis88
Just because people are in college doesn't always mean they get an extra month off or anything. Shame, that. Then again, it was my own choice.

Summer Sucks!

I get to spend the summer getting original copies of contracts wet with my sweat. I hate summer! Too hot and humid!
edsgirl
There is no such thing as a summer vacation in my case. I go to work, I go to dance, I play with my kid, and then I have to go home and do stuff like mowing the lawn. It's a pain in the ass and it's so damn hot outside. I can't wait for Autumn! tongue.gif

summer is the gayst there should be school all year around
mongooseboi
i love waking up at 1130 everyday. summer is awesome. :]
Yorotoshi
Yeah... you gotta love waking up late. XD
Summer's been good for me, though I've been on the computerall the time, bugs keep attacking me, and the air conditioner broke. sleep.gif

Well, summer for me means work, work and more work. *sigh* I never get a REAL vacation.
Lyndsie_Elric
Summer rules! Staying up late, sleeping in, no school, warmth (where I live it's a blessing! X_X), you get to go out with your friends more often, thunder storms... Not to mention anime conventions! -sigh- What more can you ask for!?
ἀρχή
Have I mentioned how much I hate summer? laugh.gif

It's supposed to be very humid this weekend sad.gif. I think I'm going to move into my refridgerator for a while.

Worse thing about summer is all those pesky brats out of school running around with nothing better to do than cause trouble. I wish school was year round just to keep them away from me. tongue.gif

So if your one of those pesky brats who's getting summer off, be warned, I'm an angry old man looking to emotionally scar you for life mad.gif laugh.gif
Carnal Malefactor
I caught a cold. How the hell did that happen!?
Dreakon
Ever since we got A/C the summer has been much more bareable. I love staying up late and sleeping in! biggrin.gif
ἀρχή
I have A/C too, but I don't like having my electric bill go through the roof ohmy.gif

Why can't there be angry old men like you in my neighborhood? laugh.gif Then again, I live across from an school, so I think the children will avoid it like small pox.

You also love rubbing it in, it seems. tongue.gif Enjoy it while it lasts, kids.

Unlike all you fortunate people, I have no A/C. However, I do have a portable electric fan or two.
~FMAgurl~
Summer means staying up reeally late and getting up at like 3 in the afternoon laugh.gif I go on the computer in between.
Mistress of Darkness
What, no bacon - yeah, I caught a cold at the end of April and then again in the middle of May. I want to know how the hell that happened! lol.
mei_tenshi
Colds in the summer suck. It's the worst weather condition possible to be sick. I've had my fair share of those. dry.gif

For the past week and a half, I've been alternating my time from reading old books dug out from the garage, watching TV programs that require zero brain usage, watching my cousin's anime and my brother's anime and...driving practice. If I stick to my dad's daily regimen, I might actually get my license soon. Maybe.

As much as I hated school as a kid one thing I do miss is having all the time off such as Christmas vacation, spring break and the whole summer off.

I love the summer luckily it doesn't get too hot here mostly in the 70's and 80's. No A/C, which can suck on the really hot days but I have a big fan so it all works out, and thank god no humidity when people say "it's not the heat it's the humidity" they're not kidding.

@ Bacon,

I'm also getting over a cold, how does that happen?

@ Bacon,
I'm also getting over a cold, how does that happen?

I had to study the common cold in science so i know this.
You stayed in a room that is not ventilated very well, with a lot of other people, you touched your nose and/or eyes with your hands and or some sneezed on you.

Since the last day of school came, I was wondering what you all would be doing or planning to be doing? Going to the beach? Thinking of lazing around in the house and going in the pool on a daily basis? Going to be watching the destruction, bored, that hurricanes will be causing (Here in Florida, we have MANY hurricanes...Wilma *two days we had to live off of meat on the grill, cookies, milk and no electricity* and Katrina *a lake of a neighborhood with everything broken*)? What're you going to be doing on this school-out summer?
I'm thinking of going to Spain with my family, or Argentina. I'm scared to death of planes, but maybe my cousin will come!

Merged. My, how time flies...X3
asunder
Well I know I'm not alone in this...(I hope)
I don't have a summer vacation.



So enjoy them while you can kiddies.
Migchao
Wow, merged already? Poor Asu...summervacationless! <----Word in Kitty language.
Miriamele
In Canada, college/uni people get out the beginning of May, but all the kids have to go to the very end of June.

But I'm glad that they're not out yet, because now that I'm a parent, I see summer somewhat differently...my VERY talkative daughter will be home all day, every day...I kind of like having some quiet every day when she goes to school! dry.gif

As for the season of summer itself, I don't like it--too hot and sticky, and then there are all the bugs...mosquitoes, for some reason, love me more than any other person on Earth. blink.gif Spring and Fall are the only seasons I enjoy.
Envy's lil' miniskirt
I hope to do some camping this summer and maybe go surfing one last time before I sell my surf board.

Enjoy your summer vacation guys. You won't get one once you become an adult and join the workforce. sad.gif
quiddityofquid
And WE do not yet have summer vacation... soon... so soon...

I hate summer though, as a season. Too hot, to humid, and just generally icky.

Unless you become an eccentric but successful well respected freelance artist and can declare summer vacation whenever the heck you want. <3

If only...
Envy's lil' miniskirt
Once the two of us figure that one out we'll be set! tongue.gif
Toby-Chan
Ooh, I'll find some way to BS the world into thinking my art is brilliant. Then I'll be set and people will be rooting through my rubbish to find napkin doodles to sell on ebay. *Rubs palms together greedily*
Envy's lil' miniskirt
It's probably not a difficult as you think. wink.gif
Molecular Alchemist
I'm an adult....I have summer vacation...and I'm spending it in the lab and work....so...I guess that means that I really DON'T have summer vacation. Dammit dry.gif Oh well, this is the closest im getting to the beach *puts tubes in water bath* biggrin.gif
phoenix dying
I'm going to see if they are going to let me work full time or at least 40+ hours at my enployment, cause i need the money for college. So there is going to be a summer vacation, i'll just be working the whole time...
Toby-Chan
*Sigh*

And again I'm reminded of how I missed the perfect summer job opportunity.

IT WAS PERFECT, I SWEAR!

You want mine???? I'll gladly give it to you so that all I would have to do is my thesis work happy.gif

Yup, yup, summer IS good. Though I prefer it when it's really rainy(as it usually is here in Sweden, we have tropical summers, for some odd reason.), it's really cozy to sit indoors and play games like FFVII, FFVIII, and FFX. Also, when you wake up at like... 5:20 as I do, you really have a lot of time to spend each day! happy.gif
