Learn how to play an instrument Learning how to play an instrument is hard work, determination and dedication. You would need a lot of practice and patience. Although, when you get really good at it, it gives you an amazing feeling, it makes you feel alive and free!
Driving School Do you ever feel like you going to places and wish that you can already drive? Learning how to drive is a great way to spend some of your summer! It is better to do it when you’re not that busy and not have a lot of things going on. I think it would be easier if you take it as soon as you turn 15. Taking Drivers Ed seems really fun and plus you get to have your permit when you turn 16!
Take Pictures If photography interests you, make a profile and start taking cool photos. Use any social media sites to share them, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, etc. One day you might even start your own business and become famous. (Warning I don’t know anything about photography but I just like to take pictures.)
Make Videos If you love filming and editing videos, then you could just start making random videos and post them on YouTube. You can take cool and funny videos and post them, you can make advice videos, cooking videos, make singing/cover videos or even beauty videos. Just do anything that interest you. You might even become famous, I mean you never know!
