How to Be Liam (in the Summer)

Wake up very early, even though you are 15.

Say good morning to and hug your mom.

Design video games: Scratch programming, JavaScript, or your submission to Minecraft.

Then, play video games with your brother, and sometimes your sister.

Practice your clarinet.

Reluctantly read your summer reading required texts.

Nap. Sometimes you do this before playing the clarinet or reading.

Spend the rest of the night snuggling with your mom, watching Big Bang Theory, and telling corny math jokes that we find hilarious.


*This poem is inspired by Vicki Spandel’s “How to Be Ms. Sader.”

  1. Why is it that waking up early when you don’t have to is easy while waking up early when you have to is hard. Love this format. Great way to get to know someone quickly.
