Summer vacation is a time when one should relax, hang out with friends, and go visit one's family members. However, most of the time we end up doing piles of homework or job assignments and get beaten up by club activities. In this piece of writing, I will first write about the advantages of summer vacation, second about the disadvantages of summer vacation, and lastly my opinion of summer vacation.
First, there are three advantages to having a long summer vacation. First, summer vacation is a time to relax. On free days, you can do anything you want! For example, you can wake up at noon, watch the TV all day, or even go to a tropical island with your family. Since there is no school, you can go watch movies during normal school hours. Second, you can go hang out with your friends. You can go to the beach at Enoshima on a hot summer day to tan, play, or even fish. I especially like to go to new movies with my friends. Some movies I enjoyed were The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, and The Grey. Some movies I want to watch during the near future are Prometheus and Resident Evil 5 Retribution. Third, you should visit your family members when you have time, maybe during "Obon" break. Having a good relationship with your family members is a good thing because they can help you in times of need.
On the other hand, there are two big disadvantages of our summer vacation. First, there are piles of homework during summer vacation. Back in the US there was no homework during the summer excluding summer reading. I mean since it's called a "summer break" give us a "break". Second, even if we have homework we have a lot of club activities so we have hardly enough time to finish it. I'm not against club activities but I just want some time to finish summer homework and prepare for the exams. The students' schedules are all very busy so I want the teachers to discuss this
and give us less homework in the future.
In my opinion, I love summer vacation but I want it to be a little bit longer and with less homework. Since our school changed the school's system from three-term to two-term, students have to study for their exams during summer break while finishing homework. This is a very difficult thing to do considering the amount of club activities we have. During this year's summer vacation, I had hardly any chance to relax or hang out with my friends. I hope that this will change next year. This is a very difficult thing to do concerning the amount of club activities we have.
In conclusion, the advantages of summer vacation are that you can relax, hang out with friends, and go visit your family members. However, the disadvantages of summer vacation are that your schedule becomes crammed up. I hope that next year's summer vacation will become a vacation that I can relax more.
