How to not squander a summer?
June 4, 2008 2:34 PM   Subscribe

I just found out that the contract that I am working on will be ending at then end of the month. I'm elated. I've been in a rut for a while, and this seems like the perfect opportunity to shake things up. What now?

I have no desire to find another job right away. I'm going to take the summer off. What should I do this summer? Life changing activities or just memorable fun. Bonus points for something that could generarate ideas for a new career to pursue eventually. I've looked into a few internships/programs but most are geared towards students (which I'm not).

The biggest limitation is that I have a puppy at home, and while I can find someone to watch him for a few days at a time, I can't just dump her on someone and jet off overseas for a few months (which is what I'd do otherwise).

I'm in the central U.S.

You could try WWOOFing at the country of your choice. Many farms already have horses, chickens, pigs, so another puppy wouldn't be a big deal. But then I have no idea how international travel with a pet works, if it works.
