The summer season is the perfect time to get things done and accomplish anything you want. I always make a list of my summer goals and books I want to read. I try to do as much as possible because my school year is always jam-packed. Having a jam-packed summer doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. All these activities are relatively cheap and achievable. Also, they can be done with a significant other or group. Feel free to add more in the comments below.

Happy Summer!


*Please remember you must be 21 to drink and always drink responsibly*
