making the most of your summer

So every summer has a theme, whether you know it or not. We discovered this many a year ago at the end of a summer full of frosty mugs that is heretofor known as "the rootbeer summer". Since that time there has been many a fine summer:

Rootbeer Summer
Summer of Fun
Summer of Play
Summer of Love (most disappointing summer EVER)
Summer of Awesome
Winter of Vengence

This summer there were many fine competitors: Summer of Bacon (think Kevin), The Summer of ROCK ('cept there weren't that many concerts coming), The Teenage Summer (which I know many have adopted, but I am 30 so coming from me it just sounds pervy). But instead we decided to go Multi-Level with this muther:

The Highly Effective Summer (set your 7 habits NOW!)

we have a website and everything. I am not going to give you a link, that would be easy. Just google it, I am sure you will find it.

The idea is that if you really want to have fun, you need some focus, some goals and whatnot.

There is even a powerpoint presentation, and there will soon be a T-shirt.

In retrospect though, it sounds like a kind of bland summer, but I guess that is the attitude of a whiner and a giver-upper (which I am not). Sure there are more epic summers to come, but I ain't even giving up on this one.

wow, that is a very adult summer. I don't even know you, but I'm going to google it, and maybe I will help fund your project in hopes that other 30-something-olds can be taught the lessons of goal-oriented summers. many can learn from your ways. then you can start selling organizers and books. though people might ask for refunds if next summer becomes the Summer of Loafing or the Summer of Marshmellow Creme.
