The summer is drawing to an end, so I figured that now might be a good time to reminisce about some of the things we did on our vacations. Did you go anywhere nice? Did you do lots of fun stuff?

I personally think I had quite a nice vacation, even though it started out really bad (I had swine flu for about a week). I spent most of my time hanging at my friends' houses, and we even started writing a book together, but we didn't get very far because we couldn't seem to agree on which ideas were good and bad. We're still working on that. I also went to a big festival-type thing called the Annual Fairy and Human Relations Congress with my mom, which was quite nice, although some of the people there seemed a little bit kooky.

Overall, I'd rate my summer about 7/10.

What did you do on your vacation, and what would you rate your vacation out of ten?

Watched some anime, learned some computer stuff, played a lot of games, and started learning Japanese. Also worked a bit on the ROM hack with my friend (currently in hiatus).
Doctors Without Borders: one of the few charity groups you can rely on to actually do real good in the world.

PM me if you have computer troubles. I work in IT for a living and can probably solve your problems. My rate is $expensive/hr, but I'm still cheaper than Creep Squad and, unlike them, will actually get the job done or let you know if I can't.

The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all.
- H. L. Mencken, unsourced

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."
- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]

I had summer school, chilled with friends, went through a rough breakup with my ex-girlfriend and smoked a lot of weed.

All in all, a fine summer.

Honestly, other than going to Colorado for two weeks, and Band Camp. I've done absolutely nothing but sit on the Computer pretty much all day. That or play video games, and hang out with my sister. There was the beginning of Summer when I rode my bike, but that went out the window quickly.

I would have to give my summer a... 7-8/10. Big points for the Colorado trip, but that's pretty much it. XD;

I did nothing, to be honest. We were supposed to go to Florida last week, but the trip was canceled due to an unexpected death in the family. Despite this fact, I would hardly call this summer a waste. I met some of the most amazing people in the past two months, and I hope the bonds we formed last for a long time.

I worked all summer. I did go on vacation with my family to New York, but that also meant I had to work extra hours to make up for taking time of.

I guess if May counts then I went to Anime North. I'll also be going to a con this weekend.

Overall I guess it's been a good summer, I was actually employed unlike a lot of people, so I'll say 8/10.

I can't say I didn't like my summer. Sure, the entire thing was a rip-off, but I got a puppy, and I won't regret it, even if it means that I have to forfeit each and every day to it.

I went down to Charleston, SC for the beaches. Went to a camp for 3 weeks, then came home early because I got swine flu. Went down to Orlando. And then a couple of pool parties. Parents divorced over this summer. :( This summer was okay... 6 or 7/10 maybe.

Went to my cousins wedding and hung out with my 17 cousins on my moms side and come on here :D

As I painfully cover my permanent wounds
Somewhere in the city that flies by
