What are you doing this summer?
Books On My Parents' Shelves
has a few suggestions.
Become an au pair.
they pay for your room and board and
taking care of strangers' children 24/7 isn't really all that difficult.
Plus, you don't even have to be nice.
You can see the sights
and, if a major movie company spots you,
you might get to dance on a few chimneys.
If you're planning to stay home this summer,
you could always pet sit for your neighbors.
Quality time with pets is good for your health,
unless, of course, that pet is a lion
that thinks it's a dragon.
Then you might want to reread your life insurance policy.
Summer is a good time to work on
self-worth and self-importance.
Work out all of those childhood issues
that have been plaguing you over the years.
no matter how bad things have been,
that's no excuse to stab yourself in the neck with a pencil.
You're worth more than that.
I'm a blog writer.
Whatever you do this summer, though,
I suggest you make it magical.
But it gets hot,
so maybe skip the full-length skirts.
(Though I do like that pattern.)
Also, I imagine it'd be very difficult to play
flashlight tag (in pith helmets) in that dress.
Just remember to be yourself,
unless, of course, being someone else is more fun.
And don't get all torn up when the summer ends.
There will be other summers.
