Despite what a lifetime’s worth of pop culture mythology has to say, there’s nothing inherently magical about the period of time between the Summer Solstice and the Autumnal Equinox. You’re just remembering how great the last day of school felt when you were a kid.
Besides, road trips, beach volleyball, campfires, all that stuff is just a summer reading assignment from a soda company, or something. The real key to discovering any magic that summer has to offer is a completely blank and directionless schedule. If you find that all the outdoors, fun and sunshine stuff is actually what you want to do, then by all means, enjoy it to the fullest. But if you don’t, don’t let anyone tell you that you’re missing out.
It might turn out that the something you want to fill your summer with is nothing. So turn off all the lights and listen to the same album ten times in a row, because changing it is too much of a bother. It will make those times when you actually have to leave the house more special.
It’s the season of whatever.
