    My favorite thing about summer is... almost everything!
    There's so much happening in the summer. Especially in my parent's town, my old hometown. It's basically a tourist village in the summer. There's lots of festivals and events and everything fun is open in the summer. The water park, the gift shops, the ice cream places, the Cartland, the Mini-golf, all sorts of places.

    And I don't even really mind the heat. It's the cold that I mind. I get pretty cold easy. I guess it's a Cuban thing. lol

    The only things I don't like about summer are the bugs and the thunderstorms. That's pretty much it.

    The best thing about my summer is when the tennis club opens. I don't play tennis, but it's nice to see the daily parade of gorgeous 19 year olds in tight tops and short skirts. If you can find any better way of justifying the existence of summer, I'd like to hear it.

    Probably the time off from school. Everything else sucks.

    It's hot as hell and even worse with humidity. It's always sunny and I always get sunburned. Every year it's a video game drought and we get nothing worth playing for months. Ugh.

    Peeping at sweaty girls in skimpy tops from behind sun glasses. Remember - it's not creepy unless they can see you doing it.

    I love the summer.
    We can swim (like, outside).
    We can have BBQ's.
    We have an excuse to drink a really nice cold beer in the middle of the day.
    Festival's everywhere.
    It's light outside till like 11:00pm.

    I love it! [​IMG]

    yea it's in Fahrenheit, but it can reach 120F here in my town, which is so HOT, can't even open a car door to go to a cool store, because the inside of my car gets like 150+, it's not fun when it breaks triple digits with near 0 humidity so dry

    That's the best reason to love summer I've ever heard of.

    I wish there was a tennis club or something around here. I'd want to join, although I wouldn't attend practice for the same reasons as you. lol

    I like how the days are a lot longer, it stays bright until around 10:30 where I am which is nice, and I like the heat, we don't get much here so we have to make the most of it [​IMG]

    oh wow, I'm sorry. Up here we get temps at 80-100. I don't think I've ever seen a day that's 120F.
    It must be dangerous to go outside.

    I love her smile. I love her hair. I love her knees. I love how she licks her lips before she talks. I love her heart-shaped birthmark on her neck. I love it when she sleeps.

    Best thing about Summer is that redundant two word phrase:

    Short shorts.

    Who likes short shorts?

    I LIKE SHORT SHORTS.

    But only when the girls are wearing them.

    God damn those tennis girls are fine.

    My Every Summer Day
    Wake up
    Go swimming
    Get a chilly cream soda
    Go have lunch
    Take A shower
    Video Games
    GBAtemp (for like an hour)
    Sit in living room
    Dinner
    Sleep.

    Well I guess it's always like that unless I have plans with friends.
    Either way, I'm happy.
    Can't wait to go Skiing though!
    And now you're like "Hey! How can you ski? It's summer man! And Doeo aren't you the guy living in a DESERT? How would you even ski in winter?!"
    My answer to that dumb question: We're in the 21st century. It's about time we had artificially realistic snow. [​IMG]
    I'm serious. See for yourself:

    Jealous? [​IMG]

    I quite like the summer: no school, hang out with friends, go to the open swimming pool, make extra $$$ and girls [​IMG]
    but I prefer the winter, the heat is fun for a while, but after a couple of weeks, i've had enough and i'm going to sit in the fridge.
