Planning for Summer

By: Brandon Sweet

Summer is the time of year when the kids are free from school, fireworks come around, and we all let loose and have some fun.  During this time, the possibilities are endless with the amount of activities that could come from this season. From fishing to swimming, to parties and more, but what do you like to do with your summer vacation? The Squire caught up with the local vacation expert, Miss Howe to ask a few questions and maybe get a few tips on what we could try out this summer.

The Squire: Miss Howe, what are you planning to do this upcoming summer?
Miss Howe: In June, I’m going to Boston, then in July, I’m going to North Carolina on a family beach vacation, and then in August, I’m going to Iceland.
TS: What in particular are you looking forward to most?
MH: I’m most looking forward to my trip to Iceland because it will be interesting to go on a type of vacation that I’ve never gone on before; we’ll have lots of hiking and activities to do while there so it should be fun.
TS: What is your favorite part of going into the first few days of summer vacation?
MH: My favorite part is sleeping in everyday, working outside on my flowerbed and not grading papers.
TS: What are some of the suggestions you could give to others that help you keep your head up on those rainy days?
MH: On a rainy day I might get in the car and drive to Starbucks and just hang out, or watch some Netflix.

Along with Miss Howe, The Squire also managed to also get the opinion of Mr. John Bortz III.
The Squire: So, John, what are you planning to do this upcoming summer?
John Bortz III: To work, lift heavy objects, run, make money, acquire a lot of currency, and then have some fun.
TS: What in particular are you looking forward to most this summer?
JBIII: I’m looking forward to not going to school every day, and not doing homework.
TS: What is your favorite part of going into the first few days of summer vacation?
JBIII: Not having to worry about going to this place (High School).
TS: What are your plans for after high school?
JBIII: I will be attending Hudson Valley Community College, and then transferring to a great school, and we’ll see where life takes me from there.

However you decide to spend the summer, the choice is up to you. The summer isn’t forever, so go out there and see what you can make of it!
