Summer is here!!
After Winter with the rain, wind and snowy weather, Spring has come and the leaves and grass have slowly been making a recovery from the wetness and moist. A new life has begun. SEASONS IN OUR LIVES: SPRING…
The trees have leaves again, the grass has returned to its full green color, the sun is shining brightly. Everything is back the way it was before. Nature is beautiful once again… Summer is about being alive again and living life.
But in general, in the season view of point, summer means also:
Falling after spring and before autumn. “At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summer
Summer is all about having a good time and by doing that people go to the beaches, have ice cream, hiking, cycling and all sorts of fun activity that is suitable for the new season that arrived. That’s why I am going to talk about the benefits summer can bring into your life…and probably my picture of an ideal summer…
Let’s jump into today’s blog post!!…
In South Africa, the summer months are usually from the beginning of December until the end of February. “Over much of South Africa, summer is characterized by hot, sunny weather – often with afternoon thunderstorms that clear quickly, leaving a warm, earthy, uniquely African smell in the air.” http://www.photodestination.co.za/south-africa-weather.html
The best time to visit South Africa (in my opinion) would usually be in December, because of our famous beaches and sunny weather. And it’s Christmas!! Just imagine A SUMMER CHRISTMAS!!
Like my blog post title says ‘SEASONS IN OUR LIVES‘ we are just like summer, and how, you may ask? Well, we know for a fact that we feel more alive and happy, especially when it comes to the sunny weather. We went through a rough time when the storm was there, when spring came, we were recovering from the storm and had to process everything, and now that summer is here we have made a full recovery and living life to the fullest.
It’s still winter in South Africa, but when summer comes in December it’s school holidays for all the schools here. I also see summer just as important as school is, because it gives you the time to gain important life experiences. You also go away on vacations and experience new things. Another important part of Summer is the rest and relaxation time for teenagers. Summer is so important because it lets teenagers take a break from their everyday school life and just enjoy life.
Summer holidays provides me with the opportunities to relax, catch up with social life, being a bit more active (after “hibernating” winter), nice longer days to do more things and just an overall feeling of well-being. I also like to tell you guys about what I like to do in summer…
Whether it’s going out with friends, going to the beach, or having a party, Summer is a great time to just have fun. My ideal picture of summer is going to the library, going for ice cream or just going to the beach. It’s very hot in South Africa when it’s summer, so I don’t really want to go outside, except if it’s going to the beach. Or I go for a swim when it’s extremely hot, then it’s time to cool off.
In my opinion, Summer is the perfect time for me, as a teenager, to recharge all my batteries. I LOVE SUMMER!!
That’s all for today peeps!!
