My Top Twenty: Things to Do

I love doing things, especially on a warm summer day. I don’t like being at home for extended lengths of time, wasting my day away watching TV or playing video games. I’m not saying I don’t do this sometimes, like on a cold day during bad weather, but when I have free time during a beautiful day, here are my ideal things to do.

20. Go for a walk up in the nearby cedars
19. Search the fields for old treasure
18. Give the dogs a bath, then watch how wild they are afterwards
17. Ride the 4-wheeler
16. Jump on the trampoline… well, until we broke it!
15. Try to get the highest pogo record in my family
14. Go to an amusement/theme park
13. Ride bikes into town, visiting stores and stopping for ice cream
12. Go to the park
11. Play badminton
10. Go Swimming
9. Spend the day in the mountains
8. Train my horse
7. Train my dogs
6. Wade in the streams and slower-moving rivers
5. Go fishing
4. Go hiking 
3. Go for long trail rides
2. Go Hunting
1. Do anything fun with my family, especially camping

Summer Personality

In my opinion, each season is wonderful and has its own special traits that make it enjoyable. My favorite season is definitely summer not only because school is out or because I was born in the summer, but because the summertime is the warmest season. I love the warm summer days when there is still enough sunlight to be outside until nearly 9:00 p.m. here in Colorful Colorado. Not only that, But the warm rays of light shining down on me warm the air and create the best temperatures to live in. Since I am a huge fan of the water (and if I could control one of the four elements, AKA the Triplicities, I would immediately choose water) swimming is another reason why I love the summer. I  have many reasons to love the summertime, but an interesting reason I love the summer so dearly is because of the similarity this season and my personality have.

The summer is filled with warmth and fun-filled days, and I am always seeking something fun and adventurous to do.  In my opinion, the summer heat provides the best time to go camping, hiking, swimming, and going on a mountain adventure… the things I love doing most and what defines a great deal of how I like to spend my free time. I would describe my personality as a fun, happy, kind, and caring personality, and the summer helps my personality shine.

I appreciate all of the seasons, but summer is my favorite time of year!
