12 Things to do in Summer Vacays! (2018)






you keep me safe, I'll keep you wild.
Welcome to my blog! So the first year of college is finally over! I have not done any blogpost this whole year (except the last one lol), made college my priority, completed my assignments on time; oh man that's a lot I have done! xD Now we have the most awaited time of the year, summer vacays! I was more thinking about what I'll do after exams than preparing for them (am I the only one?) Here I am up with some cool things that you can do in you post final vacays/ summer vacays 'coz I know you are there too ;)
Let's dive in!

#1. Get your mental health on track.
It's totally okay if your mental health has been on a rollercoaster and has seen the deepest valleys. It's a real issue that most of us are dealing with and I have burnt all the shame to accept the fact that I am one among the squad. Meditation and yoga is really good to get your mental health on the right path and stop thoughts from staying in your mind more than they should. Right now I am using the meditation app called "aware". It is sorta similar to "headspace". I have tried both and I liked both. 
I am not into yoga. I am gathering resources because I need to be all set before getting started. I hope I'll begin it soon!
ps. if you're into yoga, share your take on it in the comments below!


#2. Get in shape.
Go and sprint every morning before it'll get hot and workout 4 times a week (maybe?). It's summer man, get in that summer body. Lemme just remind you that this is important not to fit in the society's parameters of "beauty" but to keep yourself healthy and fit and stay away from all the baddie health diseases that being unfit can lead to.

#3. Learn a new language.
If you'll be practical for a sec and think, learning a new language will always be an asset in today's world. Or just do it for fun? 
Choose any of your fav language that you always wanted to learn and go for it! Learn it because knowledge in any form is power and know that you wanna do it and it'll make you happy. 
Last year, I started learning Latin because I  always wanted to learn it, but left in b/w. Now I am gonna continue it, ig?

#4. Do something with your hair. 
It's summer, and you should change your hair a little. It'll make you feel fresh and will give you a sense of beginning of a new chapter in your life. Do hair masks regularly, style your hair like every day is a wash day! Go ahead, color your hair, chop em off, get some box braids, or try weave; do whatever you wanna do with you hair!
I chopped my hair a little a while ago. Now I'll get a good and different haircut, maybe?
 #5. Skincare.
Since it's vacays, you can advance your skincare routine and add some steps to make your skin glow (just like your future, babe). You can add 7-step toning to your skin care; it's a little time consuming so one never gets time to follow it during working days.
You can invest some time in searching the right products for your skin, keeping your skin type in mind and checking the ingredients of 'em all.


#6. Read a book/watch a series or a movie.
Reading a book is an amazing way to invest time in. It helps you imagine, it helps you grow. You don't need to buy new books. You can head to the library and read some there/get 'em issued. Or you can read them online. I am addicted to the site called "wattpad". I used to read teenfics there, I still am obsessed with them, but now I wanna try humor or scific or nonfic.
You can also watch some movies/a series you've been saving to watch later. 
I will be watching 13rw s2. I was delaying the plan just to keep my mental health sort of stable before the exams end. You can always go for emotionally light shows but honestly, this show is my type. 


#7. Visit your best friend!

If you're best friend is in a different institute or stays in a different part of the city, chances are you have not seen 'em since some time too. It's the vacays man, what are you waiting for? Go and see them, I am damn sure they miss you the way you miss them.

It's been a year since I haven't seen the ugly face of my best friend. I miss her so much and so does she. I'll try going to her place to see her or maybe she'll come to mine, idk. But we'll plan a 6hrs long meet up or a sleepover? But we are gonna meet, end of the story. ðŸ‘…


#8. Do an intern. 
If you can find some place perfect for the courses you've chosen, you can work there. If the place will provide you money, that's so good, but if it doesn't, it's okay; experience is what you should gain at this stage, ig.


#9. Learn shuffle dance.
Shuffle dance is a really cool thing that you can do anywhere you want. Just head to the YouTube and search for it and learn some easy moves; practice them and voila! Enjoy it, gurl!

#10. Write/paint/YouTube. 

If you have a writing bug in you, go ahead and feed that little monster right. You won't regret it. I am gonna continue the story that I started writing when I was 15 on wattpad (lol) because I love this bug in me and I want it to grow up and grow fine. 
You can also paint, for fun, or go ahead and make YouTube videos. (that's fun too)
If you know me, yk I am a makeup person. Makeup therapy is real and it works for me really well. Maybe I'll end up doing some makeup videos? (ehehe)

#11. Calligraphy.

You can go ahead and get yourself a calligraphy kit or try faux calligraphy (like I do). The whole process is always fun and so relaxing to me. You can always write some inspiring quotes from the internet and stick them around your room!



#12. Travel and take pictures!
It might be a little too hot to go out. Spot the perfect time of the day and go to some nearby place that you always wanted to visit. I really wanna visit a zoo or a century. It's been a while since I have seen nature that closely and I wanna learn about the fellow species a little more!
Also, summer is the perfect time of the year for photography! Golden hour is the best time of the day to take photos. I am all about self portraits and I am most comfy in my own company (introvert alert!). I am so into golden hour right now. I love trying different angles and different props with self portraits. ig it helps you to understand your style better.
The whole concept is to make self happy and help self grow a little in any form. You have worked hard the whole year, you deserve this vacay. Let it be a time where you'll learn more about yourself; unwind self a little, allow self to rest and relax and enjoy each moment of this summer!

  13. Sounds like you have made some good plans for the summer. I can understand wanting to make sure you prioritized your schooling this year. Takes a lot of self control to do that. That's great. Looking forward to seeing what you do this summer.

  14. Cool ideas you got here! Last summer, I did change my hairstyle. I don't let anyone cut it cos it would end up not to my liking so I cut it myself. I also read a lot of good books (finally caught up with my 2018 Book Challenge). Thank you for sharing!

  21. You got me on the travel and take pics. lol Being that I am Canadian, home of the 9 month winter, there are few days that I consider to be "too hot."

  22. That's a great list to note and yeah getting in good shape by working out is good

  23. This is a fantastic list. I especially love that you included mental health. There is such a stigma around mental health and many people don't feel comfortable talking about it. But, it's a real issue in the world and we must address it as a society, but also in our own lives. Life can be stressful even when it's good. It's ok to seek help or take a break just to get yourself back on track!

    Also, congratulations on completing your first year!

  24. I love all the tips and especially number one! It's not easy to stay sane while juggling family, career and personal responsibilities! I certainly have to take meditation to another level.
