It sucks that summer isn’t what it used to be when we were in high school. No longer does the bright and heated weather also mean an 8-week break from responsibility. We still have jobs, chores, and everything else that comes with real life, but even so, it’s important to make the most of summer while it lasts. That’s why this is a friendly reminder to make the most of this summer. Even if it’s only for one day, get to the beach, grab and ice cream cone, and soak up the sun. As mesmerizing as these gorgeous poolside and beachside photos are, you can’t get the real thing from behind your computer screen.
