Let's face it summer just isn't as fun as an adult. Most jobs don't have summer vacation like you had when you were in school. As a kid, summer was the best. You were out of school, you spent the day outside, ice pops were a necessity as was ice cream from the ice cream truck, and you might have even been able to stay up later.

High School Musical 2 even had a song about how great it is for kids. Summer as an adult is filled with major FOMO. If you are like me and had to look up what FOMO meant the first time I heard it, you are exactly who this article is for. (FOMO stands for fear of missing out.)
