Mine has been awesome. Took a trip to Spain for 3 weeks to get my mind clear and now I have a better idea of what I want to do with my life.

We've even had near to 5 straight days of sun in Scotland.

I have no idea how I'm going to keep the momentum of the summer up until end of September. Can't even be arsed to go back.

I even passed all my exams and that was my hardest year.

Found joy again in music and playing guitar.

Hell, whatever depressed feelings I had before are gone.

How about you guys?

Could do with a trip to Spain for 3 weeks.
Congratulations, I suppose.

Summer barely started for me. And it doesnt feel like summer, too cold here.
STಠ_ಠ

So far it has been brutally disappointing. I never really considered summer to start until like, June 25 or so. I probably won't be doing anything until my birthday.

My summer has been pretty ****ing incredible.

I started working at Menards and have been getting talked up by a couple of different managers already. The work's tough but it's helping me physically; looking at it as if I'm getting paid to work out.

Started talking to a girl who had a crush on me a while back that I never knew about. We'll see where that takes me.

I've been hanging out with my brother and doing cool shit out of town with him at every opportunity. I've also been way more social and hanging out with friends in my town more than I ever did in high school.

UG is there to fill in the gaps and keep me occupied and entertained during my down time. You guys are pretty kickass, and have always played a vital role in my life. So appreciation to all of you who post here.

It's been a good one.

Pretty awesome. I've been overwhelmed by things I actually want to do and I've been happy for more than one day in a row for the first time in forever. Nothing is making me hate me or life itself, life is good at the moment.

Not actively bad, but not good, either. Flatmate and quite a few of my friends have left town. Mostly I just stay in my room watching TV/playing video-games. Occasionally summon up the drive to go to the gym.

Haven't had a summer vacation in a few years. Won't have one for at least 2-3 more years, unless I ragequit school
#22
Shit ton of work, shit ton of homework for summer classes.

Word of advice: Never take more than one summer class at a time. They're usually condensed to a month or so long and so the workload is off the charts. I'm finding this out the hard way.

+Had a few good days of sun, some barbeques, some nice days in the park, drinking and hanging out with friends.
+Found a job, after looking for ages.
+Got a new music project on the go that is looking promising.
+Hopefully gonna be going on some kind of trip at some point, not sure when or where, but hopefully it will happen.

-The job is pretty strenuous, and on a hot day, it is very tiring.
-There was a girl i was close with, but i haven't spoken to her in a few weeks, and it seems like we're drifting apart.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.
#24
So far, so good!

- Learned 2 classical guitar pieces that are more difficult than others I have learned before, and I am working on a 3rd that will be my most difficult piece when I'm finished

- Got a job teaching guitar and working with kids at the YMCA

- Went to a sweet party in downtown Detroit

- Smoked a bunch of weed and drank a bunch of beer on my less busy days

- Made about 50$ so far busking at a rest stop off the highway near where I live

Pretty good. I usually hate the warm weather, but I've been enjoying it lately.

Plus my mood and outlook on life keeps getting better. And I've been depressed since I was 16, so that's good.

EDIT: Probably because I'm finding out what self-expression really means.

I am working and doing some extra university courses at the same time so I don't have too much of a summer. That being said it has been fairly alright so far, and I only expect it to get better!

There has hardly been any sign of summer here in Newfoundland yet.For those who never excelled in Geography in school,Newfoundland and Labrador is the most Easterly province in Canada with Newfoundland being the island part of the province and Labrador being on the mainland and adjoining Quebec.Where I live is the most easterly point of North America and only 200' from the cold North Atlantic.

We have only had a handful of days were the temp went as far as 20 C and today it's a chilly 4 C or 40F and the wind is coming right off the ocean which means that we are getting lots of cold rain.I'm an avid gardener- besides being profoundly guitarded- and it hasn't been nearly warm enough to plant any seeds and hardly been warm enough to get out weeding.With any luck we'll be having at least a few warm days between now and Labour Day...lol.

I work 40 hours a week repairing the shitty work private contractors did with tax payer funding with a bunch of ******s and chatty Cathys that do nothing but gossip and bitch like we're in ****ing high school.

Really shitty. I've just been working and bumming around all day. I was suppose to be really working hard on my playing/songwriting but I've just been too lazy.

I'm suppose to be joining this fairly establish local band so that's cool I guess.

It's been plenty warm for that if you know what I mean.

It's been excellent. passed all my classes last semester, have a job that pays me far too much for what I do, reconnected with people i havent seen in a while, the library increased my borrowing limit, pretty optimistic about my classes next year. I was kinda sad before because I have a leg injury that made me cancel my earlier plans (was gonna travel a bit) and I basically have to sit around and not do anything active for the next 3 months. But I get to travel w/friends at the end of summer so I'm looking forward to that.

It's been a bit uneventful, but I can't complain. Gonna finish recording my album and put it up on Bandcamp before summer's over, and I'll hopefully be in Kyoto from October onwards.

Universities usually start their summers about 2 months before highschools do.

So far my summer has been the most productive ones I've probably ever had. Going through first year of university was a real wake up call to get my shit together, and I'm glad to say it's going well so far.
