Summer is the coolest season ever. I can’t wait for that when school is out.

What’s the best thing about summer?
Most people would answer differently than me. Don’t get me wrong, I like sunshine and warmth; I love being able to drive with my windows down; I LOVE getting my hopes up about camping and then not going because I have no one to go with; I love BBQs and being able to wear neon without attracting strange looks; I love bargaining with my father – if he picks up the dog poo and mows the lawn, I’ll buy him some ice-cream.
No, my favorite thing is being able to read. I know what you’re thinking. You can read any day of the year! No, not exactly. During the summer, I can kick my textbooks under my bed (I really did that. Damn you, Adelante Dos) and pick up a book that has been waiting all year to be opened – something I picked out. Throughout the course of the year – that is September through April – I seem to accumulate a wide variety of shiny, expensive, brand new books. Taking a break from studying, I always seem to find my way to Chapters. Sometimes I buy a book or two, thinking “Oh, I’ll read it this weekend if I can manage to do some studying first”. I never manage to do some studying first, of course.
