How To Waste Your Whole Summer

Today I’m going to be sharing six ways to waste your entire summer. Don’t worry; it’s not as hard as it sounds. I have some really good ways to accomplish this, so we’ll jump right into it.

Have no plans.

If you don’t have any plans, you don’t have anything you have to get done. You can wander aimlessly through your days, accomplishing nothing, and thus wasting a whole lot of time. You will never need to ask what you should be doing or what comes next, because you’ve planned nothing to do.

Sleep late regularly.

When you sleep late, your day starts late, and you are typically running late all day long. So sleep as late as you can, doze the last hour or so, enjoy the comfort of your pillow, and know you are wasting a lovely summer.

Spend time doing nothing important on your phone.

If you have trouble sleeping late, this step will help to make that one easier. What better way to make sleeping late easier than staying up late wasting time on your phone?

And throughout the day you can be constantly checking your phone for texts, emails, and other notifications. If you have friends wasting their summer too, you could text them to see how it is going.

Read while eating or working.

We talk about reading here, so I couldn’t leave it out, could I? If you read while doing other things, it will make both activities take a lot longer. If you have a book propped open in front of you while washing dishes, you will constantly be looking between the book and the sink.

And if you get too focused on your book, you might not be as careful with the dishes and have to rewash some. That would make the job take even longer.

If you drag your meals because you got caught up in an exciting part of your book, that will be more time wasted. When it comes time to do the other things, there won’t be as much time left because you took so long eating and reading.

Complain about the heat or being bored.

What better way to waste your summer than by complaining about it! Maybe it’s too hot, or not quite hot enough for swimming. Maybe you’re bored, or something fun you wanted to do got canceled. If you look hard enough, you can find something to complain about.

Do your chores or school A. S. A. P. (as slowly as possible).

Not all students get summers off from school. I usually had a lighter load in the summer, but still had assignments to do. Whether you have schoolwork, chores, or both, doing them as slowly as possible will make them take a long time.

To make them take longer, you could daydream, stare out the window, talk to someone nearby who may or may not be trying to waste their summer, or just move as slowly as you can.


Now, that doesn’t sound hard, does it? When we stop to think about it, it really isn’t difficult to waste time, even an entire season. If you follow these six ideas I shared, then come September, you can enjoy the Guilt of knowing that you wasted three whole months of your life, ninety days, and a whole lot of hours, minutes, and seconds.
