Apparently Adulthood Means No Real Summer Vacation!

I loved summer, and still do. I love when it finally starts to warm up and I can sit out on the deck reading a book while sipping iced tea. I love not having to wear 3 layers of clothing just so I don’t freeze to death outside. I used to spend my summers traveling around with my family.

Now, adulthood has officially come. This is my first true summer since graduating. Last summer I spent my time traveling around by myself exploring new places. This summer I’ll be working  to make sure I have enough money to pay for my car insurance etc. Don’t get me wrong – I love my job! But I can’t help but look out the window and think to myself of all the things I could be doing. Which in reality I probably wouldn’t do anyway, but it’s nice to imagine!

So I guess summer is no longer going to be that fun, hang out all day type of thing anymore. I didn’t even realize it up until now that adults don’t really have much of a summer. I mean sure they may have a week or two off but it’s just not the same.

Sigh. I already wish I was a kid again!
