It's summer. Got plans?

Summer is a drag filled with idleness and plans that never become reality. I fill my days with researching colleges, filling out job applications, playing with my dogs, watching movies, sporadic activities with Key Club, and a leadership workshop. I had hoped to take a road trip with some friends though that requires money I don't have from a job that hasn't hired me. Maybe next year.

I have been to many camps and am going to Washington, D.C., to attend a leadership program. I'm also developing my writing during the summer to achieve a more publishable standard. I am excited for the next Harry Potter book, and I am waiting to see one of my favorite books, "Twilight," to be turned into a movie. I really don't want to have too many family reunions this summer, because I want to work on finding myself. I want to try to control my anger and learn how to deal with people who can test my nerves. Also, I want to be more politically involved. I have many plans this summer, and fall is definitely coming too soon!

This summer, I'm hoping to get a job so I can afford to shop and to go places to hang with my friends. I want to spend time with my friends, because it's easy to fall out of touch when you don't see them every day. I'm looking forward to seeing "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" and to reading "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." I'm also hoping to finally finish my novel, now that I have plenty of time to sit down and write.

This summer, I'm doing a lot of sports. I'm playing summer basketball and soccer, and I'm playing a little lacrosse with friends. But for the most part, these sports are in the evenings. During the day, I'm spending far too much time on the computer or doing something that is equally unproductive. I hope to get a job somewhere, to fill that time.
