School is over and probably all students are excited to change their daily routine. Long sleep and late wake-up are one of my wishes hoping I could still experience it even if I have an eight hours job.  But I can’t because I’m not a student anymore. I only have weekends to enjoy those things. If I were given a chance to have a full blast summer, I would probably do these 5 things:

1. TAKE A LONG SLEEP to recharge body energy.  Eight hours sleep is enough. Don’t do oversleep or else you will end up lazy all day.

2. GO OUT AND TRAVEL. Plan those travels ahead of time so you can get promo fare flights and save up some money for the escapade your are planning . I would probably go to Vigan to see their historical street, Ilocos to discover the windmill or in Baguio to wear some comfy sweater during summer and dig for cool wag-wag finds.

3. HIT THE BEACH. If you have that summer body ready, this is the perfect time to scream it out to the world. Hit the beach wave with your friends. Try all the amenities that they have. Wear your floral dress at night, have your hair braid and draw some cool henna tattoo at your hand, neck or back. Then chill and sip some cold fresh buko  juice shake with your friends while witnessing the sunset.  I’ve been to Boracay with my colleagues last 2013 and it was awesome! Another destination that I would like to visit are Dahican Beach in Mati to try skim boarding, El Nido Palawan to have that instagram moment with your hubby between those majestic islands and Pearl Farm in Samal Island for the VIP feels and family relaxing getaway.

4. LOAD UP SOME SKILLS. Staying at home for three days make me feel bored especially when your internet connection sucks. Samahan pa ng long blackout damn you really get bored. But don’t waste your time. Sabi pa nila “Time is Gold” so better use of your time and plan your day right. So why not load up some skills. Attend some free summer workshop or seminars you wish to join like badminton for sports, hair & makeup workshop for fashion glamour, cooking or baking for some culinary feels, unleash you artistic side by make some DIY or doodle at home. By these ways you will be surprise of what you are capable of.

5. TAKE TIME TO PAMPER YOURSELF. Sometimes we forget this especially for those who are working mom like me who works eight hours a day. We don’t like to look haggard right? So when payday comes make sure your set aside money for your nail grooming, hair treatment, foot & body massage or facial treatment. By this way you will be able to treat yourself for a job well done.

Since school is over as I mentioned a while ago, I would like to congratulate all the graduates for moving up to the next level and for the moms out there who finally end chaperoned and tutorial sessions with their kids.
