What Summer does to Teens like ME

When it comes to the last week of school, almost every teen in this chaotic world of ours can’t wait to ditch their backpacks, books and any other item related to school with a smile signifying that “I won’t be touching them for the next month or two” But there are some teens in this world like me, who for some reason always end up not going anyplace fun, and all their friends become the lucky winners to go somewhere halfway across the world. If you’re really unlucky, they never give you updates, leaving you to sit around and keep dreading the unfortunate and hot days that you have to spend doing SOMETHING interesting until the first day of school.

But of course, not many like that situation either, but it’s at least better than nothing.

The GAME DESPERATION: It’s almost halfway through the summer break, and the only thing that is keeping me alive is the Sims 2 game where I’m doing quite well. I am not the kind of person who plays video games everyday to distract themselves, especially from homework (well…i sometimes do), but summer has made me do so.So gaming is a risk for teens like me.


Le paresseux personne (the lazy person) Summer being everyone’s time to relax from torturous PE has extremely decreased my fitness level so much that in extreme cases, I’ve had my brother pass me the remote which is just a slight move and arm length away. Yes, summer can make people like me extremely lazy non-ill people.


The Late Shiner: With the sudden relief of  not having to wake up early the next day or go to bed early the next day, teens like me decide to enjoy life and go to bed at extremely late time like exactly at midnight or even at 2 in the morning. And in some situations, like my used to be extreme cases, waking up the next day at noon and having to have a brunch or messing up the whole daily mealtime.

This ones for book lovers like me…

The Desperate BOOKWORM: This usually starts for me in the beginning of any kind of break, which involves a sudden need to keep reading. I ended up completing 6-7 books (300-400 pages long) in my first two weeks of break this year, with each book done in 2 days. Trust me, it is scary and yet addictive like…(besides the obvious drug consumption)…anything that is addictive. The desperation for reading can start fading over the few weeks that you find other ways to pass your time, but the initial effect is crazy. Currently, I’m on my twelfth book of this summer, and am determined to read at least 8 more. But in the end, this effect of summer is helpful for teens like me who are in the stages to going to high school and beginning advanced types of literature.


And that sums up all the things that summer has done to a teen like me so far, and who knows what other things occur over the few days.

    I have to say that it’s awesome that you’re reading books at such a fast pace. It sounds super productive. I seriously want to adopt your spirit of love for books in my life hehe~
    Have a nice rest of your summer, and I hope that you reach your book-reading goal!

      Thanks! But the spirit of love for books isn’t really that hard. I think you just have to find that one genre or type of book that really gets you reading it like crazy and then all you have to do is find books that share the same theme. Anyways, hope you have a great summer too!
