Summer is BORING. Nothing to do? FML is here to entertain you!
1 - Summer school can keep you entertained, but it's still a bore
Today, I found out my mom is signing me up for summer school, while she and my sister go to Hong Kong for the summer. Not only am I missing out on that, but I'm also missing out on a cruise with my cousin, who my parents suggest I stop hanging out with because apparently, he's "too old" for me. FML
2 - Facebook friends aren't REAL friends
Today, none of my 500 Facebook friends responded to my status about "who wants to hang out during summer holidays?" I created an imaginary person on a different account to respond and ask me to hang out with him. I had a conversation on my status, with myself. FML
3 - It's even worse when Summer School becomes a Bummer School
Today, I finally finished my summer assignments for three AP classes. My schedule also arrived. Turns out my school can't place me in any of them, and I just wasted the last four weeks of my summer. FML
4 - What's the point of a vacation if you can't move around without hobbling?
5 - Beach holidays are fine if you can sit out in the sun without smelling like bacon
Today, I went to the beach. After applying sunscreen liberally and doing my best to stay out of the sun, I came home with the worst sunburn I have ever had. I almost needed to go to the hospital. I am officially too pale to be allowed outside in summer. FML
6 - Rekt by Dad
Today, I was talking with my father on the phone when I mentioned I wanted to stay at school over the summer and work. He asked if it would be lonely with the campus empty, when I replied that my friends would be working here too. He asked: "What, all two of them?" FML
7 - At least you're swimming during the heat, some people make do with cold showers
Today, my mom signed me up for a swimming class to show my sister there's nothing to be afraid of. Considering I'm 17, I assumed I'd be in an advanced class. Instead, I get to spend summer blowing bubbles in the shallow end with four-year-olds as my little sister cheers me on from the steps. FML
8 - I Know Where The Summer Goes
Today, my doctor called and asked me when I could have my broken hand x-rayed again. I said the ER staff had told me it was a bad sprain over two weeks ago. I'm now in a full cast, and have to have my partially healed bones re-broken. There goes my summer. FML
9 - You've got a friend in me
10 - Vacationing abroad isn't just about crossing borders, you also need to cross language barriers
As the Pet Shop Boys sang :
"She said: “We were never feeling bored
‘Cause we were never being boring
We had too much time to find for ourselves"
So try that mindset! Boredom comes from inside. Make your own entertainment if this Summer is getting you down, there's always something to do or discover. Have fun!
