It’s a painful realization as the calendar flips to August – it’s the month which hosts the halfway point of summer. You’ve already enjoyed July 4 fireworks, countless BBQ’s and weenie roasts, Saturdays on the beach. The days are beginning to shorten in an ever-increasing way, and you know it’s back to school time soon. Soon the nights will become lonely and cool and your fun will be at an end. So when it turns to August, it’s important to enjoy a little before it’s too late. Here are some things you can do to make the most of the time you have before the crushing depression of real life comes crashing back on top of you.
If you whine about not being able to afford an impromptu vacation, you might as well just jump off a cliff and end it all, because life is made for living, and what’s a few extra dollars here in there. You can’t take it with you after all. And you also can’t take that credit card debt with you. So who cares? Find a saver fare on some online cheap airline place and go somewhere awesome. Go to Hawaii. Go to Puerto Rico. It doesn’t matter. Just get up and go somewhere for a few days or, ideally, a week. Actually 10 days is the perfect vacation. Long enough to get out of town, but also by the end you’ll actually be ready to come back to your life. Don’t make excuses, make fun.
Buy a New Car
You know what sucks? Your car. You spend a lot of time in it driving here and there and doing errands and picking up friends and crushing to Home Depot. Might as well enjoy your time in there instead of always worrying that it’s about to break down, or, what’s that noise, or it’s never felt like this before. That kind of worry can really get a guy or gal down. The auto industry is still reeling and is trying to come out of its hole it dug for itself so there are great deals that can be had on cars of all kinds. For example, head into garden grove dodge and you will most likely be able to walk away with a cool new Dodge. After all, no one really wants a Dodge so they’ll be willing to make a deal.

Swim Swim Swim with a Swing
What separates summer from winter? In the summer we like to swim. So don’t let this summer go by without getting your fair share of swimming it, whether it be at the lake or the ocean or a crick or a creek. Submerge yourself in Mother Nature’s finest, the waters that run her lands. You’ll be thankful you did. It’s the little things that can really make your life worth living and the Autumn and Winter not so bad.
