It is almost that time again, school! Nobody wants it to come, but at the same time we are all secretly wishing for it to come quick. And most of us are wishing this so we can see our friends. But in our last few days of summer, check off this summer checklist and see how successful your summer was.

  1. Go to the beach at least once with a friend.
  2. Go to a concert.
  3. See fireworks, preferably over body of water.

  8. Catch fireflies.
  9. Have your first kiss.
  10. Have a summer relationship.
  11. Play chicken in a pool with a bunch of friends.
  12. Get some kind of paying job. (Whether it be mowing lawns, serving people at McDonald’s, or writing online, as long as it pays.)
  13. Get a look changing haircut that takes off at least three inches.
  14. Dye your hair. (Semi-permanent hair color is accepted.) (Girls only!)

  37. Run through the rain in bathing suits.
  38. Find a random dry patch where it is not raining and stand in it during a rainstorm.
  39. Sell lemonade.
  40. Make completely homemade sundaes, and that includes the ice cream and whipped cream.
