SummertimeSummer is officially here and, because it’s my favorite season of the year, I couldn’t be more excited.  I always view summertime as a time of freedom, youth, and fun, so I definitely try to take advantage of the spontaneity of the season and I encourage you all to do the same.  Take advantage of the sunny summer days, the warm summer nights, and the flexible summer schedules.  Go to the beach.  Go to an amusement park.  Go for a walk.  Go for an adventure.  Do whatever you want, but just make sure to enjoy the nice weather and the freedom that summer brings.  I’m definitely excited for my summer plans and the memories that will come from random moments with the people I love.  The fact that I just graduated and will be turning 21 soon makes this summertime even sweeter for me.  I can’t wait for the unforgettable memories and the nice tan I’ll be gaining this year.  I wish you all the best during what I think is the best time of the year and I hope you all enjoy whatever the next three months have in store for you.  Happy Summertime!
