Is this summer better than the last?

My summer is already better than last year’s because of the effort I put into planning trips. This will be the first time I’m heading to Boracay with friends and not family, so I’m really excited.


I also haven’t gone hiking for the longest time, so I’m adding that to my trips because I really think it’s such a fun thing to experience with the barkada.


Lastly, I’ve been able to squeeze more workout time now, because I’m personally setting new fitness goals and summer is the perfect time to break a sweat. That way, when I go on trips I can pig out and eat whatever I want!

This summer is going to be better than the previous one because this is my last year as a college undergrad. Next summer I’m going to look for a job, apply for internships or maybe even continue my studies.


Other than the usual road trips and out of town adventures with the barkada, I also want to try traveling alone. I’m not sure where I want to go, though. I also want to catch up and get closer with my friends before we go our separate ways after college.

Last summer would be hard to beat. But I think I can make this summer better by traveling a lot more around the Philippines, dancing, meeting new people and spending more time with the barkada and especially with my family.


I’ll be leaving for Spain for a couple of months in July, so I’m going to maximize my summer before I start school there. I think I’ll be eating all the food that I want since I won’t be able to do that in Spain.

I will make this summer better than my last by enrolling in classes such as video production and photography, so that I can beautifully document all the summer trips I will be having with my family and friends.

I will grab all the opportunities to make this summer memorable, like go on road trips and do other fun activities with my friends.


I will take lots of pictures so that I will remember each activity.


I would step out of my comfort zone and be open to try different things and be very friendly.

Last but not least, I will hit the beach and savor every bit of the sunny weather.
