A few weeks ago, I made a promise to myself that I would only book something “big” every other weekend this summer. By “big,” I mean overnights, houseguests, or any trip that requires more than an hour in the car. With my friends and family mostly vaccinated, I knew it would be pretty easy to schedule myself into an overwhelming, unmanageable state of anxiety, and I wanted to protect my sanity. But guess what? I totally, epically failed.
It’s not even Memorial Day, and I’m currently looking at a calendar booked straight into mid-August. Go figure. I guess the only thing I can do now is roll with it and tweak my original plan. My new rule is this: Just have the most fun possible. It’s as simple as that.
Here are 10 things I am going to do to have the most fun this summer—even if I need to sleep through the entire month of September to recover.
