1. Any vacations you are looking forward to this summer?
YES! My mom and I are currently planning a cruise in May which I am so excited about. It’ll be my first time out of the country and my first time on a cruise. The one we’re looking at seriously is a 5-day cruise, stopping at Cozumel, Mexico and the Cayman Islands. Eee!

2. What is your favorite article of summer clothing (shoes are included)?
Last summer, I was tied to cotton skirts, tank tops, and cut-off capri jeans. I’ll probably be tied to them again this summer. (Can I just say how happy these questions are making me? Yay, summer!)

3. What is your favorite summer drink (alcoholic or non)?
I don’t really have one. Anything I drink in the summer, I drink any other time of year. I will admit that strawberry daiquiris are pretty summer-y and probably my favorite alcoholic beverage.

4. Do you tan or burn?
I never tan. I either burn to the extreme or remain pale as a ghost. I’m trying to get better at wearing sunblock when I’m outside because a) I don’t want skin cancer and b) I’d much rather be ghostly pale than deal with the pain of a sunburn.

5. Any goals you are working toward this summer?
Job searching! I’m hoping to be employed very soon after I graduate, but I know it’s going to be tough. There’s not a lot out there for a new graduate with very little experience. I’ll also still be going strong with this weight loss journey, so there’s that.

6. What is your favorite summertime food?
Hm…hamburgers? Ooh, especially hamburgers on the grill! Yum, yum, yum! And watermelon. I love watermelon in the summer. It’s just not the same any other time of year.

7. What song most says “summer” to you?
There’s really not too many songs that say “summer”. The only ones that come to mind are Avril Lavigne’s “Complicated” and Eminem’s “Without Me” because they were basically my anthem’s in the summer of 2002 and anytime I hear them, I’m instantly transported to that time.

8. Any home improvement goals planned for the summer?
Not really. I would like to buy better furniture for my room, because I don’t have a dresser and my full-size bed is sitting on a queen-size frame. My room is basically the “before” picture of any home decorating project.

9. What is one thing you hate to see at the beach?
Myself? I just really don’t like the beach with the sand and the salty water and wearing a bathing suits. And now I’m realizing how odd that statement is, given #1. But whatever.

10. Did you ever go to summer camp?
Twice, with my girls’ group at church. We only went for a week but it was so much fun. I had a blast both times.
