As I begin making the final edits on my 6-page essay due tomorrow, outlining my week, and writing out notecards for my final exams, I thought I would take a few moments to visualize my life in say, a week and a half. In this life, I am sitting on the beach beginning my summer reading list, laughing with my mom, and sipping ice tea while attempting to tan. This may sound boring for someone turning 20 this summer, but let me just say that besides the fact I have always been an “old soul,” I need some serious relaxation this summer. I am hoping to get an internship because I want to learn more about journalism, and I get SUPER anxious come July 1st when I haven’t been working in some form for a month. But, you know, I still want some true beach bum days! Hopefully that made sense. I’ve spent the last two days writing a 5-page Declaration of Leadership and a 6-page paper discussing the decision to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. To say I’m a bit jumbled at the moment would be an understatement!
Anyway, what are my beach necessities? I’ll show you:
A cute bikini, usually print and usually a color that doesn’t reveal how utterly pale I am, a comfortable and cute pair of brown sandals, a great book (!!!!), sunscreen (SPF 100, please), a fun sunhat to protect my skin and offer shade while I read, an adorable fully-functional tote, a pair of denim shorts, a pair of sunglasses, and of course, a cute, comfy, lightweight coverup for days I’m not in the mood for shorts.
Hope you’re having a good Monday! If you’re currently in finals week, may the curve be ever in your favor! If you’re already on summer vacation, go to the beach!
