100 Things To Do This Summer

You’ve been anticipating for summer with an unbearable eagerness all year, and yet here you are, in the middle of it seemingly stuck in your room, clutching your phone in one hand and binge eating with the other. Maybe it’s your overwhelming desire to make the most of your abundant free time that’s drowning you or perhaps it’s your boring hometown that falsely seems uninspiring, with nothing to offer. However, don’t be fooled. Fun can be found in the smallest things.

For me summer is the opportunity to idly do the things my busy schedule has deterred me from venturing on throughout the year, be it relaxing, creating, visiting new places or merely hanging around with my friends. Thus, I compiled a list of 100 things you can do to keep yourself entertained and motivated at all times. 

Also a friendly reminder: there’s no need for you to strive to make this summer- or any time of your life- unforgettable by being pushed to do one thing or another. Special moments are effortlessly created when you’re carefree and appreciative of your surroundings. Enjoy!
