Currently I’m waiting to hear back about internships for this summer. Applying for anything is anxiety provoking- I just want to hear back immediately. And, what if I don’t get any of them? I’ve been trying to come up with a back-up plan (more like thinking up crazy ways to spend three months) and stumbled across this Life article about a 1948 summer “cult” called Activationism. Be wild on a beach? Set up art installations? Get advice like, “Artist! Rid yourself of mental constipation”? Yes please.
Life pitched the article this way: “Do you want a ‘real’ experience to talk about when you get home from your vacation? Come and get yourself Activationized!”
So, if I don’t get any internships, join me on a beach somewhere to bring this “cult” back. Read more here at Life.
