I'll admit the title is a misnomer. I didn't really go anywhere this summer. Typically the heat leaves me too exhausted to explore or go out. The events that transpired in the last month of summer really broke that pattern to bits. The desire to stay at home was gone. I'm not sure home will be considered home for a bit.
Writing this, I'm mentally exhausted from having to socialize so much. But really, it hasn't been so bad. I've always had fun trying new things with old friends, and showing old pastimes to new friends. It's helped me collect quite a collection of summer memories, and that really brings me back to feeling like a little kid. You always tried to get the most out of a summer vacation.
Despite the inconvenience of the summer, I can honestly say that I'll look back on this summer fondly.
