So, Summer is coming to a close, School is coming around the bend, and it's getting cooler here in Illinois.

It's a tad depressing, so I ask you UG what are some of your greatest accomplishments you have achieved this summer?

And you can post all sorts of good things, not just achievements, good things in general. (or the bad)

The Good:
1.) I beat Zelda: OOT and TP and LttP, So it was a very zelda summer for me.
2.) I hung out with my friends a bunch, almost everyday.
3.) I'm a yellow belt in my Karate class, and I beat a Orange belt in a Sparring match.
4.) My birthday scored me some great Ramones merchandise.
5.) I got in great physical shape, from 166 pounds, and 5"11' to 147 Pounds, 5"11'

The Bad
:
1.) I still have acne and I'm going back to high school
2.) I am nowhere near my new guitar that I want.
3.) My best friend has been gone for weeks
4.) My A, D, and high E string are all busted and I have no replacements. My dad is also to lazy to take me to the damn store.
5.) I still don't have a girlfriend
6.) I DIDNT GET TO SWIM AT ALL
So Post some things that are good, or bad that have happened to you during the summer.

I've changed a lot in a good way
I've lost weight.
I bought a guitar with my own money
I got driving lessons out of the way for the most part
I have a job for once
I concured my fear of heights, oceans, and sharks
I went to 6 flags for the first time


The bad:
..... hm school is soon?

Honestly... nothing bad happened for me this summer. I'm going off to college in 3 days and I really feel like I've gained a new sense of maturity, especially over the last two months. I've grown up more in the last 2 months than I have in all of my four years of high school. College is going to be so awesome I can't wait. This summer was awesome.
