Once finals are over we’ll all be wondering what’s next on our agenda since it will be our favorite time of the year, summer. Maybe we’ll be traveling around the world or traveling within the state, maybe we’ll be working. Nevertheless, we all want to do something fun, new and exciting since school will be the last of our worries.
