    Think about what you love to do, and what you want to try. Now that you have more time, you can do things that you didn't have time for during the school year.

    Make a list of everything that comes to mind, even if it seems silly. Even if it seems too juvenile for you, like going to your local playground, you should consider it if you really want to do it. You are only young once! (And it's YOUR life, don't get down if someone thinks what you do is childish.)

    Find out what is going on in your area. If you love animals, painting or photography, consider going to a local zoo or nature trail, or enrolling in an art or photography class. If you love music, find out if there are some concerts going on. There are a lot of great events that happen during the summer.

    Spend some time with your friends during the summer. This is a sure fire way of making sure you don't lose touch with your pals over the summer. Yes, texting is OK, but to really make good memories and great bonds with your friends you need to go do things together. Cookouts, swimming, playing volleyball, going to your local river to fish, shopping at the mall, and other things are great ways to hang out with your friends.

    Clean your room. If you are like me, it will take a while to get your room ready for school. It will be worth it though when you are not losing important papers. Plus, your parents will see that you are more mature when they see that you cleaned your room without them threatening to take away your cellphone.

    Spending time with your family is another way to make the most of your summer. This is a great thing to do. Your parents and siblings will always be there for you if you have a good relationship with them. Even something simple like eating dinner together can make your relationship closer with your family.

    Read some books while you're not at school. There are books out there that are really interesting, believe it or not. There is one collection of books that i have fallen in love with called "the princess diaries". I think it is really cool because it is based on a real princess, but has bits of fiction in it to fill up the spaces of what they didn't know about the princess.
