I have a 4 month summer holiday which this year I am going to be resting through to try and get better. But here are some other ideas.. Do some voluteer work Get a part time job to help fund doing other things throughout the summer Plan day trips with friends to places like the beach, the zoo etc.. Make sure you make the most of the summer and spend time outside doing things like playing tennis, having a picnic and water fights. Even just reading a book outside is nicer than staying inside Use the hot summer as an excuse to try and make different yummy cocktails. If you are like me and don't drink there are loads of nice virgin cocktails to try. This is some thing I am going to be doing this summer! This may sound kinda geeky but it's a really good idea to set in mind what you want to achieve the next academic year. Write it down and keep it in a safe place so when you are feeling less motivated you are reminded of what you want to achieve

working 7 days a week. had to take a paycut at my main job in April so that squashed all plans for fun this summer. Now I concentrate on paying the bills on time and keeping my house! UGH. When will the economy get better? I do try to go to our community pool after work during the week and to take the kids to the movies (we have a 1.50 movie theatre by our house) once a week too. They are old enough to make their own fun now and end up sleeping til noon anyway :)
