Make or break your summer

Aliana RItter ’25

After school gets out I think it is important to stay busy. But I think it is a good thing to have free time and do fun things with your friends over the summer while you can. Many people that live in Grosse Pointe go up north but friends or family over the summer which is a great way to make memories and have a little getaway. I took off a few days of work last summer to go up north with my friends and it was the best week of the entire summer.

I had to get a summer job in high school and when thinking of where I wanted to work I just wanted to be with my friends and be outside. I had no idea that I would become so close with the people I worked with and it started to not even feel like work anymore. So many people are lifeguards and I think it is the best summer job because you know a lot of people from school and you get to be outside. I think being a camp counselor or being a camper is something fun to do over the summer. There are also many nannying jobs and you get to play and be outside while earning money.

The park league swim teams are very popular for all ages because it’s for fun and you get to be with your friends. I got the privilege to be on the team for the last two years and it’s some of my favorite memories from the summer. Anyone who lives in Grosse Pointe has the ability to go swimming at their city park to swim and eat with friends and family. On the days when you don’t work, you can relax at the pool with friends and family and play games at the park.

You want to be able to enjoy your summer but having some sort of routine or schedule is good for mental health. Getting up and doing something productive in the morning sets me up for the rest of the day and makes me feel good. Whether it’s going to practice, going to the gym, or going on a walk, any physical activity in the morning is great and you have the rest of the day to do what you want and still feel productive.
