Last Day of Summer, Last Day Things are Allowed

Well, today is the day, folks. The day that glorious, carefree months end.

It’s the last day of summer (technically).

You know what that means?

  1. It’s the last day that cool drinks at Starbucks are acceptable

Be Single this Summer

IMG_3668

~ design and photo created by me ~

People think a summer fling would be the perfect story. However, staying single for the summer is better for you than having any significant other. Instead of spending half of the summer finding someone who is good enough and only being able to spend 6 weeks with them before going back to school/home/work, you should stay single and enjoy the good life. Here are 5 reasons why you should try to stay single during the fine months of May-August.

And remember to stay sassy throughout it all!

1. Freedom 

blogg2

This is not meant in a sarcastic or discouraging way. I mean freedom to decide for yourself what YOU want to do, when YOU want to do it. Relationships are compromises and giving things up at times for your significant other. And I’m not saying this is not great for people, but what I am saying is that this is the time for you to be selfish. Like the great Koyoko quote states. Be selfish and learn to love yourself.

  1. Making new friends

 blogg3

Now, you can meet new people at some social gathering. And you’re ALLOWED to do it! You are single, so no one is restricting you from interacting with the opposite sex. You can mingle, flirt, have fun and meet new people. It is a great thing, really. You do not have to feel guilty by any means. Plus, the summer has way more social events and the atmosphere is so free. It is a great time to be single.

  1. Traveling

 blogg4

Travel to visit friends without having to accommodate anyone else. Now is the time to travel without any strings attached. Go for days or weeks or a month. You do not have anyone calling you back! Cross things off of YOUR bucket list. You will not need to travel to a random city in the middle of nowhere to meet more family member of your SO’s. Travel to the coast of your interest!

  1. Work on bettering YOU

 Blogg1

Summer time is the personal-renovation months. There is plenty of time to re-adjust your eating habits, start exercising and taking care of yourself, start a new hobby, finish a project, or whatever it is you need to do to find out who you are. You need time to focus on yourself and learn what you really love.

 

  1. Showing yourself you can be independent

 blogg6

Many times people go from relationship to relationship, but the summer is a great time to step back and force yourself to be on your own. You learn who you are and what you are capable of. Living on your own and living with just yourself is a great lesson in life. Take the time to be selfish and do whatever you feel like!

And just walk by couples and give this face to them: it’s so refreshing!

8 Challenges for the Summer

Don’t just sit on the couch for three months. Set some goals. Have some laughs. Don’t end up like most of the people in these GIFs.

  1. Learn new water tricks to show off at the beach or pool

GIF4

Everyone just goes to the pool or beach and lays on a towel. I mean, how impressive can that be? Don’t just be a beach bum and lie there slowing burning and thus, dying. Take this guy for example, he is trying really hard to impress someone. Challenge here: Impress someone with something new you’ve learned

  1. Get a part-time or flexible side job

GIF6

Look into babysitting or being a nanny. You literally get paid to play with toys, and then sit in a home watching TV. Sure you need to be fully prepared for anything that could happen, but it is also a really fun job. I mean look at this woman, she obviously knows how to babysitting correctly. Knock the kid out early on, and you’re golden. Challenge here: Twerk so hard it sends someone to the ground.

  1. Go to the gym a couple of times to get yourself into a routine for the fall

GIF7

Don’t worry about those people doing hardcore workouts and posting about it every day. Do it your way, on your time, and at your pace. But just do it. Look into different types of classes or workouts, experiment. Kickboxing, yoga, volleyball, Frisbee, swimming, whatever! There are plenty of options to get fit and many places to go to get your workout on…like a bathroom apparently. Challenge here: Don’t deface property.

  1. Try new foods

GIF10

Venturing outside your comfort-zone-palette can be good for you. Try a new ethnic food or go out to a new (but cheap, of course) drive-thru, oh I mean restaurant. Try actually cooking food that does not require a microwave, or expand your food horizon to foods that do not need hot water added to it. Challenge here: Eat a new food and wear it somehow.

  1. Don’t spend your precious summer time worrying about your future/life

GIF9

Summer is time for great adventures, relaxing, stress-free planning, and sleeping. It is our only time to really detoxify our minds. If you must plan something about your future, do it slowly and peacefully. There are no time constraints during June-August! Challenge here: Don’t go full-Schmidt and panic.

  1. Don’t date for the sake of a summer-fling

GIF3

That only happens in movies, or when people forget they live in the real world. Be single and happy about it during the summer. It is three months of just focusing on YOU. Plus, let’s face it, how do people actually meet anyone in the summer anyway? On the plane for an hour? Walking down the same streets you walk down every day out of the year? I do not know where people find summer-flings that they cannot find during the year. What could you possibly be doing that is so much different than the other months of your life? Challenge here: Practice your sassy comebacks.

  1. Cross something off of your bucket list

GIF12

First, make a bucket list because it is cool and helps you realize how little you have actually done in your life so far. Then mark something off, so you can feel better about yourself! Even if it seems impossible, write it down because  when you accomplish it, you feel invincible. Kind of like Batman. Except when Bane threw him in the sewer that one time. Don’t be that version of Batman. Challenge here: Don’t be lame.

  1. Go somewhere new, whether it is in the same state that you live in or a new state or new country

GIF11

Traveling really changes a person. Seeing how other people live and how different the world looks in other locations can make you a smarter person. Staying in the same place your whole life makes you lose appreciation for places and people. Travel, explore, and get out! Challenge here: Get as wanderlust as possible, and then beg people for money so you can travel even more.

Or make your own 8 challenges. Whatever works.
