With the summer vacation coming up/already started for some, what are some things you're planning to do to keep busy? Learning a new instrument, building something, something non-music related?

I'm thinking of either learning to play the drums or bass along with trying to learn a basic understanding of music theory.

What about you guys?

I'm starting work on my 'extended project' for college, which will eventually be a report titled "A comparison of English and Russian literature of the last two centuries in terms of political, social and economical growth and change" accompanied by a 5,000 word commentary on said report. I'm going to be doing an awful lot of reading and researching over summer

Calm, calm me more; nor let me die

Drink
Drink some more
Drink until I realize that I'm so bored
Drink away the boredom, in the process realizing my crushing loneliness
Drink to forget the loneliness, mix with heaps of self pity
Wallow in self pity and feel very low


Go to college, and miss the summer holidays.
