Summer. The cool ocean breeze, blue seas, soft sand, rebellious memories and unforgettable times. Who doesn’t love summer? In my mind, summer is therapy.
my mind: Summer- an excuse for everyone to run away from stress and go to a visually, mentally and physically therapeutic place every year. My favorite type of running away is to my paradise.
This summer was better than every single other summer for me. It definitely was therapeutic for me. I felt more confident, proud, happy and tanned by the end of it! 🙂 Before summer, I did have a bit of a confidence problem even though everyone thought I was a very confident person. No one looks in the inside, they only look at the costume you’re wearing outside. Because of this, no one really understood how much my confidence lacked. When holiday started, I met so many new people, new groups, new personality and I also think I found a new me. I feel refreshed. I feel like I am back to me. And, I never really thought one summer could do all of this but it really did. School and society can really break someone down, you know? Oh, I’m 14 if I forgot to say. Society and ‘fitting in’ for our age is so hard compared to the older ages. We are put in this picture. In this picture are drugs, alcohol, sexual actions and self harm including any other wrong thing. This isn’t right. Now, I’m not trying to be cocky, but I know I am not unpopular and I do have quite a lot of friends, but if they do bad things with their lives and try to make me join them, I’m not. That shouldn’t mean I’m a loser.
But, being away from school… THAT may be the best thing in my life. Away from society. Meeting new people, maybe even better people. People who don’t give a fuck about if you take weed or not. Now, those people look behind your costume. Those that look at you, inside you, those are my favorite people in this big world.
I hope summer makes people feel good. Summer makes me feel free. Summer makes me want to go out and be different, it makes me want to run into the beach with my speakers on full blast and ask people to jam out and dance with me. But, summer also makes me calm. It makes me want to lie by the beach at midnight, look at the stars and listen to the waves. Summer changes you.
My best memories this summer, wow, there are so many. Definitely going into the sea with a big group of friend at night then having a big bonfire at night. Or, going out with my friend at night and just dancing and not caring what people think of us. Or, lying on the tennis courts right by the beach and looking at the stars and listening to each other. Or, taking turns water skiing, weight boarding and mono skiing over the great turquoise sea, taking pictures and chearing each other on. Or, almost falling asleep right by the beach at midnight. Or going to the water park with my friends and being those reckless teens there because all we wanted to do was have pure innocent teenage fun. Sorry society, but we are crazy young kids, that’s what happens! 😀
Well, I hope everyone had an amazing summer or will have one. Please make the most and I can’t say this with more emphasis THE MOST!!! out of it! Don’t care about what people think, because by the end of the day it’s going to be what you care. I regret that I wasn’t as confident as I was in the end of my holiday as I was in the start. I could have made even more memories.
Live life to the fullest guys, I promise it’s not going to be waiting for you.
Don’t let life finish the race before you.
