500+ Words Essay on How I Spent My Summer Vacation
Every student looks forward to the summer holidays – waiting for school or college to end so that they can stay home and not worry about piles of homework or nagging teachers. Everybody needs a break from routine, and the summer months are the perfect time for that. Apart from freedom, every student loves the summer break because it allows us to relax in the scorching weather.
Moreover, the summer break is long enough for anyone to try something new or continue pursuing their hobbies. Some people also like to travel during their summer break, either to visit relatives or to visit foreign countries and cities. While I do enjoy travelling a lot, unfortunately, I had to spend my last summer vacation at home because I had to wait for the exam results. Nevertheless, I did have an eventful summer vacation!
I took some time out this summer vacation to learn a new song on the piano. I’ve been playing the piano ever since I was a child, but there have been points when I’ve fallen out of practice. Due to that, I was determined to learn at least one new song in the summer, which I did.
The song I chose to learn was The Truth Untold by the worldwide sensation Korean group BTS. This is because BTS are my role models to work hard and to continue learning more about the world and myself.
Their songs are filled with thoughtful messages of self-love and compassion towards others, and they also sing about several issues pertinent to the youth, such as mental health. I wanted to learn a BTS song because their songs mean a lot to me, and I knew that if I mastered a BTS song on the piano, I would feel rather proud of myself.
The Truth Untold is a primarily piano-based song, so I had plenty to learn from it. It’s a very sad, heartbreaking song about hiding behind a mask and being too afraid to show your real self to the people you love, hurting them and yourself in the process. As a poet, I find this song to be beautifully written and extremely touching, so learning it was a wonderful experience.
Spending Time With My Brother
Since exams were finally done, I wanted to do something I didn’t get to do because I was so busy- get out of my room and spend some time with my little brother. He’s very kind and understanding, so he never nags me when I’m studying. Nevertheless, I felt bad for leaving him so bored with not much to do.
I spent most of my summer days playing or chatting with my brother. When we talk, we never stick to just one topic. He likes to stay updated on what is happening around the world, especially in terms of technology.
Because my brother always tries to be open-minded, he is also a good person to have a conversation with when it comes to discussing serious issues. This also helps me teach him more about some things that he might be confused or misinformed about.
We both love playing video games, so last summer was an opportunity for us to play plenty of Fortnite. We hardly ever play against each other though- it’s a lot more fun to work together. We do, however, play against each other when playing sports games on console, because they incite more competitive energy from both of us.
Waiting for Exam Results
While I did have some great moments in my summer holidays, most of it was filled with tension because I was going to get my final results soon. I was very nervous, and because of that, it was difficult to completely enjoy not having to go to school anymore.
Waiting for your exam results is always a painful and nerve-wracking experience. Sometimes you may want your results to arrive right away so that you can get it over with, and sometimes you don’t want them to arrive at all because you’re too scared to see them.
I regret having wasted so much time just worrying when I could’ve been trying new things or reading more books. When the results finally came, all the worrying felt utterly useless, because it’s not like it would have changed the answers I wrote on my papers. If I could’ve done something differently, I would’ve tried harder not to be so tense and to assure myself that I would end up happy no matter what my marks were.
I’d say I had a fairly eventful summer- it was cut short as soon as my results were announced because it meant having to pack up for university and wait for classes to begin. Nevertheless, summer is always a good time to relax and take some time to think about yourself rather than your obligations.
