What is "Summer"?

10:57 PM

Once upon a time there was a thing called "summer" and all of the boys and girls would eat ice cream and be happy and go to the beach.  Then I decided I would take a Maymester class, which basically means I traded in my beach time and ice cream for pens and legal pads. A typical day for me looks like this: class, lunch, work, gym, dinner, reading, Netflix, bed.  It's kind of nice to have the structure, but at the same time I kind of envy my boyfriend who gets to sleep until 1:30pm and then spend the rest of the day at the beach.  Yes, I am bitter...

Don't worry, I will get something summer-y done.  I'll get to the beach, mostly because it's actually inevitable when you have a boyfriend who lives at the beach.  I'll hopefully get some crafting done for the apartment next year.  We actually never decorated the apartment we currently live in.  Don't judge.  Or do.  Actually, just do.  I'm going to use this time to hopefully get back into reading as a hobby, and get into the habit of going to the gym everyday.  It's part of this realization that I need to start being healthier, which includes hydrating and eating healthy as well. I'm also working on being better with money, which for me basically just means not spend all of my money on Chipotle and frozen yogurt.  I'll start looking over graduate schools and I'll get ready for next semester.  Clearly I have a busy summer full of adult things and a couple fun things sprinkled here and there.

In all honesty, I don't actually mind. I enjoy learning, and I have a feeling that the setup of my Maymester class will be more relaxed yet intriguing. I also really love this idea of getting into a routine. I have class from 9:00am to 12:15pm and work from 1:00pm to 4:00pm every weekday. I like the idea of going to sleep and waking up at roughly the same time. I think routine is a very adult thing, as long as I also understand that there must be room for flexibility as well. I also think it will be great for my health, both physical and mental. I will admit that I'm already a bit tired just after day one, but I think the next three weeks will be great.
