View Full Version : What did you do this summer?

August 26th, 2009, 4:18 PM
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).

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.

August 26th, 2009, 9:27 PM
lots and lots of videogames and sex

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.

Worked. Not much. I wish I'm able to take vacations.

August 27th, 2009, 4:49 AM
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.

August 27th, 2009, 5:10 AM
Nothing really.

Played video games, went on computer and was forced to go to some awful beaches.

August 27th, 2009, 5:25 AM
I took a cruse. :/ It was alright.

August 27th, 2009, 5:45 AM
Played a lot of video games, and sleep a lot.

August 27th, 2009, 6:59 AM
Worked out, learned some songs, played video games, and....school. -.-

August 27th, 2009, 7:05 AM
I worked all summer for the parents. Other then that spent time reading for my retakes and the internet.

Moved in what has to be one of the Stupidest. Moves. Evar. 9 miles up the road into a place less than half as big and more than twice as old. As well as decrepit and dilapidated.

Oh, my parents hate internet with a passion, so I couldn't even be on PC but once or twice a week.

So glad it's over:/

August 27th, 2009, 10:24 AM
Played videogames, moved to Fla, & worked my ass of like always

August 27th, 2009, 10:36 AM
Went to two weddings, went camping a lot, had my birthday, went cosplaying for the first time everrr.

So it's been okay. :3 I was pretty depressed for most of it though. XD

August 27th, 2009, 10:38 AM

and then we just came home, and i've been sleeping in and going outside ever since

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.

August 27th, 2009, 1:25 PM
Uhh... I joined PC in June and then went to France and Italy for two weeks and it was amazing ^^
Umm then I went to ropes course camp <3
Then to Chicago for a convention with my family's business
then I had foot surgery and have been on crutches since August 4th

so that's my summer

August 27th, 2009, 1:36 PM
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.

1: Hung out with a certain friend. A lot.
2: Went to arts camp. Loved it. Like usual.
3: Went to computer camp. 2 reasons why I'm not going again.
-8 hour day of learning the same subject
-Reed. This jerk kid from that camp.
4: Went to Israel.
5: Anime convention in Israel.

And that's basically it. All the important things.
..I swear I'm forgetting something.

Summer: 8/10

For the most part, I sat at the computer all day. Then when I felt I was doing nothing, I started feeling fat, and made an attempt to work out. Did so, then went back to sitting at the computer all day. Then.. the process repeated over and over again all summer with a very few adventures made out into the real world and out of my bedroom. Clearly I have a very exciting life. :(

Though, of course, I made no effort to contact my friends (nor did they make an effort to contact me, which I really don't care) to go out and do something, so I guess I'm to blame on my summer basically being the most boring summer vacation I've had.

Since school ended for in in early June...

- I turned 20

- Had dinner at my dad's country club
- Met up with some old high school friends
- Went to Walt Disney World for two weeks (spent one day checking out the Kennedy Space Centre)

By the end of the summer we need to paint our front door and garage. XD

It'd be nice to meet up with Kura or Lightning again before school starts.

Chilled with friends for most of it until I got my car taken from me :3. It was my best summer ever actually, despite the crappy ending.

i was at home for all the 6 weeks and helped my mum to clean something when i wasnt playing sth on the computer

August 30th, 2009, 1:46 AM
I died a little on the inside ;)

August 30th, 2009, 9:41 AM
Visited family, relaxed, went on forums, etc.
Didn't go on vacation anywhere =/
It was kind of a lazy summer. That's ok though.

August 30th, 2009, 12:00 PM
The Summer started off with my birthday. Then I joined a Summer sport thing and rolled out my ankle. Ermmm, I had a bunch of fun with that sport thing and I did really well. That lasted July and that was all I did. OHOHOHOH! On the 19th of July, I got three hermit crabs. Blues is dead now but the other two are still alive. I didn't see any friends other than my sports thing, but yeaph yeaph. Oh, and for the fourth of July, I went down the shore for two days with my family. I didn't do anything with friends until late July, when I saw Harry Potter. I went to a party, erm,

In August, I started a new Summer school activity that goes on until June. I went to a couple of those things before going to the mall to shop for my cruise. I actually went on my cruise and had loads of fun! Then I came back, chilled with friends, went to the mall, and went on another vacation which I just came back from three days ago. I'll be doing homework and chilling with friends until the school year starts in September. :'D

August 30th, 2009, 1:13 PM
Ah, I think this was my best summer yet! ^^
I started it out on my last day of school when I got my ears piecred for the second time. I really wanted to get them pierced again, so I was excited.
Later that same day I went up to the mountains with my friend and met some of her "mountain friends" and went to a party. It was definitely the right way to kick off the summer.
Then later in June I saw 13 Killings, The Word Alive, Eyes Set to Kill, In Fear and Faith and Sky Eats Airplane in concert. They were awesome!
Shortly after that concert, my boyfriend and I became official ♥
In July, my parents allowed me to bring my friend on vacation to South Carolina with me so that was super fun.
The first weeks in August were band camp for me. It was super fun! I play bass guitar in marching band and the parts are hard this year, but really fun. I'm looking forward to marching season.
Finally, in late August I went to Vans Warped Tour. It was beyond amazing! The singer from Big D & the Kids Table crowd surfed and landed on me! That was the best knee to the face I've ever taken. I wouldn't trade it for anything :3
I also went to the beach a few times a week all throughout the summer.
I'll miss these past three months! D:

I traveled all over the world.

In order, starting from my home in Den Haag, The Netherlands: Antwerp, Belgium → London, England → Lakehurst NAES, New Jersey USA → Manhattan, New York USA → Baltimore, Maryland USA → Charlotte, North Carolina USA → Orlando, Florida USA → Key West, Florida USA.

I had waffles in Belgium, stole a boat in England, learned to fire an M16 rifle in Lakehurst, visited relatives in New York, Baltimore, and Charlotte, went to Disney World in Orlando, and had cranberry-lemon sangria on a boat in the Keys.
