10 Things You Can Do To Pretend It’s Still Summer
A new term is about to begin. Perhaps you’re about to start uni for your first year, maybe you’re returning for the second or third time, or maybe you’re an unfortunate graduate, mourning the loss of Fresher’s Week.
Whichever one you are, you’re probably already missing the summer and wondering where all those months went. Well, never fear. Here are a few things that will help you pretend the summer is never over…
1. Slap on some suncream.
It may not be sunny enough for you to burn, but the sticky sensation and unique smell will make you feel like it’s July all over again.
2. Wear lots of bright colours.
It’s not time to get rid of those yellow jeans or that Hawaiian shirt just yet. If you’re wearing big, bright flowers, how can the real flowers be wilting? Perfectly logical.
3. Go swimming.
Not only will it keep you trim, it’s an excuse to whack out your swim gear again.
4. Have a ‘holiday romance’.
After all, the term doesn’t specify which holiday. You could have a Halloween Romance…
5. Rain or shine, get your tan on.
It makes sense. Kind of.
6. Eat ice cream.
Let’s face it, ice cream is always good.
7. Have a barbecue.
The smell of those home-cooked burgers will make you forget it’s only ten degrees outside.
8. Make and constantly listen to a playlist of 2014’s summer hits.
If Calvin Harris says it’s summer, it must be true.
9. Drink a lot of Pimm’s.
It will make you feel summery and classy at the same time. It’s a win-win.
10. And I suppose, if we’re being logical here, you could just book a holiday…
What better way to pretend it’s summer than by literally extending it?
And, okay, so maybe all of these won’t always be plausible, in which case you’ll just have to don those woolly jumpers and enjoy a hot chocolate. Damn.
