    3. Talk to my crush
    4. Pour the drinks
    5. DJ’ing
    6. “Partying” and comparable activities will do nothing to advance my objectives.
    1. Learn a musical instrument this summer. There’s a wide array of instruments to choose from and, who knows, you may discover that you’re one of the best triangle or cowbell players in the world.
    2. Besides getting tipsy during this break, we recommend that you take up collecting. We don’t necessarily mean collecting beer cans or other frat water containers, however, it’s a fun hobby that matches any interest. Think of anything you adore: flags, dogs, My Little Pony? There’s merchandise to be collected.
    3. You seem pretty outdoorsy, so we recommend hiking, mountain climbing or even hang gliding during your break. Anything that will bring you outdoors. Take advantage of the beautiful clear skies and lovely Bay Area locales to do a variety of outdoor activities.
    4. Get a summer reading list together if you haven’t already and actually read them all. Explore books outside of your comfort zone as well this summer. So if you’re normally a “Twilight” type of reader, don’t be afraid to delve into some H.G. Wells.
    5. Unleash your inner gamer this season. 2016 has had numerous new releases such as the new DOOM and Hitman games or the 80th Final Fantasy title. Hit up your local Gamestop and get to it.
    6. Just keep doing your thing, honey. It looks like you already have plenty to do this summer with your plans for world domination.
