Summer reflective essay

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Summer Aim´┐Że Bremner Summer, for a young child it evokes thoughts of long sunny days making sand castles and dashing in and out of the cold salty water at the beach, maybe birthday parties with cake and paper hats, songs and face painting, being chased around with sun-tan lotion or even just spending a day at the park. For the average teenager of today the word summer brings to mind a time to be spent with friends, whether they're at a party drinking, laughing and dancing or at each others houses watching scary films in their pyjamas, munching popcorn and gossiping. For the adults among us it's simply a time to just relax and take a break from the stresses of daily life. Summer brings about the thoughts of a holiday for all, but sadly different people have different opinions of what a 'holiday' truly is. It seems to be very rare that you will find a teenager with the same taste in holidays as their parents and me and my family are no acception. ...read more.

The possibilities are endless but just having allies with you makes it so much... better. After arriving home I spent the rest of my summer making memories I would like to remember. The majority of my time was spent with three of my favourite people, Sammy, Jill and Kyle. Together we did many things. Many, many things. Some were hilarious and others were... just as hilarious but made us look all the bit more stupid. We even attempted to bake cookies. Can you imagine? Once all of the mess was contained and the treats baked the final product was... unconventional, to say the least. Unconventionally shaped, unconventionally coloured... Green. And every single one of them looked like mint chocolate chip ice-cream. I personally thought that they tasted rather scrumptious but Jill claimed that they "tasted of green", and despise the obvious deficiency of logic in that statement this is still her claim today. But who knew, blue food colouring makes green cookies? ...read more.

Conclusion

I think that I'm getting just a bit too old to frolic at the beach or paddle in the sea but I'm just too young to be able to do as I please. I'm approaching the age where soon I'll be going on holiday just me and my friends to have fun and my parents will be going on their holidays to relax. Years down the line I may be taking my own kids on holiday to repeat the cycle that I've grown to loathe and I'm sure that they will eventually too. I'm sure that one day I'll miss being at this awkward 'in-between' stage, I may even feel sad at not making the most of it but for now I just want to grow up. I want to have independence and freedom but most of all I want to be able to do as I please and enjoy life the way I choose. ...read more.
