So, it's your last summer before college and you want it to be a good one. You might have several plans on the table – sleeping in, hanging out with your friends or spending time with your family. The truth is, this might be your last summer of actual youthful freedom. You might spend next summer working or you might take summer classes to graduate early. No matter your future plans, you need to make the most of your time right now, and here's seven ways to achieve this.
1. Widen out and Become a Social Butterfly
If you're an introvert with a small group of close peers, it's time to become a little more independent and widen out. If you're going to college alone, becoming more outgoing can help you transition into college life easier. I'm not suggesting completely transforming your personality. I understand you can't make an introvert and extrovert, but you can do little things here and there to widen out and make new friends. Don't turn down invitations to events that could help you improve your social skills.
