Fresh crisp air with fully blossomed flowers and green treetops is something we all look forward to after the wet, freezing, and frostbitten toe winter days. It is summer finally and everyone is excited! Everyone has plans with some even travelling halfway across the world. However, here you are bidding your friends good bye with a churn in your tummy because you have no plans and have no money to visit the other side of the world. Most of all, you have nothing to look forward to. And all of a sudden, you are not looking forward to the long day light hours because you have no idea how you are going to spend it. Your summer need not be gloomy and blue because there are plenty fun activities you could do and enjoy at the same time. Here are a few ideas you could explore.
Spending time with your family
You might think, but that is what I do everyday! Being at home and with my family. Spending time with your family can be much fun than you could think of if you can be a little creative. Come up with a project that you could do as a family like giving a new look to the garden. Or fixing up those garden chairs and tables so you could enjoy a fabulous barbie with fine taste ribs and burgers in Melbourne and a cold salad in the sun. You would be surprised how accomplished you feel not only because you have things fixed up or completing a project but because of the beautiful memories you’ve just created with your family.
Apply for an internship
An internship might sound boring because it is more work that you want to actually get away from. However, if you spend a few hours on the internet doing a few searches you will find oodles of opportunities that could offer you the chance to travel like your friends. The only difference is yours might be paid for and could also add to your college application. Internships offer great many things, such as meeting new people and cultures. Plenty of opportunity to taste different cuisines and be part events that you would have never had in your hometown. It could even help you see the world in a different way. So stop feeling sorry for yourself and get on that internet and get those search engines moving.

Volunteer as an alternative
If that internship did not workout, consider volunteering. There are great many places that could use your help. Again, it need not be something that is boring. Think of things that you are passionate about. If you love animals, checkout if there are any openings at the zoo for volunteers. And I bet during summer time they could use all the help they can get. The experience will not be only about the animals but the people you will meet and who knows this might be the time when you lock down the kind of career path you want to take.
These are only a few ideas but big ideas that you could explore. There are always more if you can take the time to think a little creatively.
