I sometimes feel I’m not doing much with my summer. Or, since it’s almost over, that I didn’t do much with it. I see some friends abroad helping others; I see people exploring the U.S. by car; I see some classmates taking many summer classes to graduate earlier; I see others reading book after book after book while I’m stuck in the same one. And, well, as for me I am just here at home most of the time.
But today it made me reconsider.
Even though I feel did not do as much as others this summer, I had fun. And if I think about it I did do several things. I worked as a research assistant in my university, I traveled with my family, I helped my mom and my aunt start their local business, I’m about to finish that one book I’ve been wanting to read, and I spent the beginning of summer with my grandfather, among other things.
One thing that my boyfriend and I finally got to doing, that I love we took advantage of this summer, was swimming in his pool many times. We bought an underwater camera a few days ago and we went crazy with it (cuz it was just so cool to throw a gadget in the water and it be ok – a strange feeling and a little scary too!). Being there with him, swimming, playing, capturing underwater shots, made me think about how much I really liked this summer. (And how much I love spending time with him.) So those “negative” thoughts just went away. (Thank you, David.) I did the things I had the chance to, and even if I could’ve done more, I am happy with the stuff I did.

I still need to learn how to swim.. maybe next summer! :D
