Gone are the sleepless nights of endless school requirements and projects. You have two months of free time. Sure, you can spend these months in your room doing absolutely nothing, but we have a better idea! Have you ever seen The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants 2 and got jealous of the girls for having such memorable summers? Good news! You don't have to dig up skeletons or have a pregnancy scare (you definitely don't need this, Candy Girl!) to have a summer to remember.

Get your bucket list ready because we are crossing out items that will guarantee to have you feeling like a winner.

  1. Write A Novel
    Always had a story in your head but never found the time or motivation to sit down and write an actual novel? You can join Camp NaNoWriMo this April, a lighter version of the National Novel Writing Month in November. The challenge? Write 50,000 words in a month. How? Sign in to their site and get motivated with a daily word count validator and sprints sent to you to help you finish that novel by the end of April.
  2. Get Ready For College
    By now, high school seniors probably know where they will be going to for college. Take this time to visit your campus. Candy Girl tip: ask an older friend who studies in the university to give you a more personal campus tour to get a hang of the place especially if you will be commuting for the first time. You have two months to stock up on essentials like supplies and a new wardrobe if your school doesn’t have a uniform.
    If you're only in your junior year, you can take classes in review centers to prep you for entrance exams you’ll be taking later on this year. Don’t be too focused on the future though. Take time to have fun and make memories. After all, college is a whole new experience!
  3. Read Up!
    Ready to exchange your chemistry text book for a John Green novel? Give your bookworm-self more fulfillment by doing a reading challenge depending on your preferences. You can keep track of your progress and update your already-read shelf in Goodreads.com. You can also get recommendations from friends on what books to read.
  4. Get Away
    Of course, what would summer be with out a trip away from the hustle and bustle of your normal life? There are a lot of summer destinations available to us that offer a break all that school work! You can opt to go abroad, to the beach or to a road trip. If you want to break free from the mainstream trips out of town or you’re yearning for something more spiritual, you can organize a trip to Monasterio De Tarlac (http://monasterio-de-tarlac.weebly.com/) where a relic of Jesus’ cross is sanctuated. You don’t even have to be religious to enjoy the place. It is on top of Mt. Resurrection, San Jose, Tarlac. The place is quiet and the ambiance is serene giving you and your family a time for reflection.
