Summer Plans

Kyle Reed // @kylereed

In my first week of teaching I was told by a fellow teacher why
ever teacher goes into teaching…for summer break,
I start to wonder what i am going to do this summer.

To be honest, I really have no summer plans what so ever.
The only thing I know for an absolute is that I am going to the guru conference
hopefully with Ben Parker, playing softball
and I am taking part in the fantasy day at busch stadium.
Other than that, I have no “real” plans.

To make myself feel a little better, I have decided to come up with my ideal summer.
Obviously the best way to do this is to break it down into a top five list.
So here it is, my top five plans for my ideal summer:

1) Get a Girlfriend
As crazy as this dream sounds. To make this a very ideal summer would be
getting an ideal girl. I am not asking for much, just somebody.
I don’t want any parking place girls thought (see brennan loveless blog video)

2) Make some money doing something I enjoy
Who doesn’t want this?
I go back to a couple years ago in my life where I was a gas station attendant,
terrible times of monotony. The people were great, but the job, not so great.
What is my ideal job? Working with people who have a mission and doing
something I enjoy….can you say personal shopper

3) Read a lot of books
Nothing would be better than to go back to my sophomore year of college
when I was reading a book a week. Reading at least 5 to 7 books this summer
would be great.

4) Pick up a new hobby
I really don’t know what it will be. But I would like to start up a new
hobby that will keep me busy this summer. Any ideas?

5) Make a difference in someones life
I know this sounds funny or cheesy, but for me, to have an ideal
summer, I would like to make a difference in someones life.
Whether it be a timely phone call, a one-on-one conversation,
or a word of encouragement, I would love to make a difference
in someones life this summer.

So these are my top five ideal moments for the summer, I am curious…
what are your ideal plans for the summer?
