This is the final post in a series by former FLVS student Makaila, a model, author, and student advocate.
Hey FLVS, it’s Mak – with my very last summer post in what has been a fun year writing for The Virtual Voice.
Summer. Summer. Summer. Those three words used to play on repeat in my head, and where from? High School Musical of course.
Summer is in full swing and you know what that means…vacation! Get excited, and enjoy your time off before a new school year begins. You earned it.
So, to get you amped for the rest of summer, let’s talk summer plans! This month, I plan to go to the beach with all my friends. I can’t wait to soak up the sun, play some volleyball on the sand, and go swimming. I go to the beach all the time, but going in the summer is always my favorite. I don’t have to worry about studying for a test, doing an extra credit assignment, or turning in a new essay.
Of course, at FLVS you may be taking a course over the summer – but that doesn’t mean you can’t relax!
But as we all know, Florida is so hot! So why not ask if you can travel somewhere a little bit colder? I am planning to go to New York or Colorado to visit my family. Summer wouldn’t be the same without campfires, s’mores, and lake days! If you can’t tell, I love to be outside.
Whether you’re staying home or traveling, be sure to get out of the house this summer. I know it’s tempting to want to stay inside and play video games or watch movies all day, but get outside, get active, and enjoy the weather!
I want to know about your summer plans, so comment below and tell me what you’re most excited about doing! Oh, and be sure to read over the summer. Pick up a copy of my book: Blatantly Honest: Normal Teen, Abnormal Life. It will give you some great insight into being a teenager and some great advice in case you need it.
In wrapping up this year’s blog series, I have enjoyed being able to be part of your life every time you read my posts. FLVS is a great school, and be sure to work hard so you can enjoy your well-earned summer vacations.

Thanks again for reading and enjoy the rest of your summer!
