If you think April is hot, then May is hot, hot, hotter. Who would not claim it, anyway? May is still thirty one days to continue to spend summer to the way we want it.
It is summer time, and in any case, like any other tropical country, our Aprils and Mays here are really that hot. In lieu with this, it has become part of our summer rituals to spend it a way relatively sizzling hot with respect to the season. A way relative because the term “hotness” of how you spend summer depends on how you define it.
As often as people believe, it is a perfect time to relax and to feel the vibrant rhythm of the sun’s heat as it prickles down under their skin. For these people, summer is just so short and so quick in a year that they would not want having anything else to do that might limit their preferred activities to savor summer with indulgence. For sure, they would not want going to white sand beaches with family and friends be out of their list. Wearing a tanned skin, with matching summer suits would greatly be a perfect outfit for them. It would also be a fun time to partygoers to celebrate to the best time that they want. In other words, there would be no room for worries here. And that is summer for them.
Another possible way to spend summer is to spend it a way not conventional to other times of the year. For some, they would resort to spending quality time for their selves. Because what they often times do in the whole year round is to busy their selves with work obligations and responsibilities, doing away with the usual pace would be what summer is for them. It would mean a perfect time for reflection and recollection to each stressing day while moments of unanticipated rewards would already be worth all the summons for having assigned such responsibility. Cooling down from the work routine would be as easy relaxing in the couch while enjoying a TV show with pineapple juice on the left hand and the remote control on the other. Reading the latest revelation books of Dan Brown or checking out the latest issues of different entertaining magazines depending on what fit your taste could also be another preference. And that would be another case of a “hot” summer.
For others, especially to the laborers and to those devoted people who advocate the same principles with that of these workers, summer is just but another set of time to continue their fight for greater subsidies to supply for their essential needs. Today is Labor Day. For others, it may be of no importance to celebrate this holiday. But for these laborers who feel this strong urge to gather for survival, they will rally in several public places with conviction to ask the government to give them what they deserve — ample basic resources a laborer and a his family needs. And that what constitutes their summer.
In my case, however, summer is summer. I mean, I am not really that particular on following summer trends. I just spend it on a way I think would best maximize my time. Doing anything that you think will make you efficient and productive. Spending time with family and friends. Really, just any important stuff to busy me this summer. And to add up, I must make sure that these stuffs must be worth reminiscing every moment any time of the year and for the years to come. That is summer for me.
Above all these, today is just May 1. Summer is still on the long run. May we all have a fruitful summer.
