You probably had big plans for your summer vacation. You've waited for too long. You deserve a fun and exciting break! Sadly, we don't always get the perfect summer we've planned. Here are some of the summer expectations we have and what really happens to them IRL.
1 Expectation: Getting fit for your upcoming beach trip.
Ahhh, it's the season of swimsuits and sun kissed skin! Time to show off that summer bod!
Reality: Skipping your fitness plan.
There's no way you’re jogging under the heat of the sun
2 Expectation: Seeing cute boys who look so fresh despite the heat.
Reality: Sweaty guys are everywhere.
Never mind. This temperature makes everything look uncool.
3 Expectation: Learning something new and exciting.
"Maybe this summer, I'll learn calligraphy. Or I can learn how to play the piano. You know what, ballet sounds fun, too!"
Reality: You catch up on sleep.
"Cut me some slack. I've had 10 months' worth of schoolwork. I deserve to sleep!"
4 Expectation: Going out with your friends almost every day.
Reality: You're stuck at home watching old episodes of FRIENDS.
Yes, you have friends this summer. All ten seasons.
5 Expectation: Going on a spontaneous trip with your family.
Reality: You have to plan weeks ahead for everything to go smoothly.
Reality: Reading one book on your list is already an achievement.
It's never too early to prepare for school!
Reality: You spend most of your summer in front of your laptop.
Textbook? More like Facebook... and Twitter and Instagram and YouTube. Yay!
8 Expectation: Posting cool Instagram photos with even cooler hashtags.
#thesummerdiaries #fitnessfriday #touchdownBoracay
Reality: Your hashtags are a little different in real life.
#thevampirediariesmarathon #pigoutfriday #touchdownkitchen #touchdownbedroom
9 Expectation: Attending cool parties and concerts.
Nothing's going to stop you from seeing your favorite musical acts this summer vacation!
Reality: All the cool parties and concerts are either too far or too expensive.
Is this the start of a summer romance that could turn into a real life happy ending?
Reality: Yup, he's taken. Don't even bother.
Better luck next time, sweetheart. Maybe, next summer!
