We know: It’s extra hard to stay motivated in your cubicle on Friday.
Hopefully, you work for one of those awesome companies with Summer Hours, and you get to hit the road after lunch. (Or at least play ping-pong and drink a beer, like they do at OfferPop .)
But if not, we’re here for you. Every Friday afternoon through Labor Day, we’ll be bringing you a round-up of summery fun to get you through the workday.
Do: Pick Your Perfect Summer Road Trip
Trying to plan your next summer vacay with your friends? The fine folks at Buzzfeed have put together an interactive quiz (yes, involving animal photos) to help you decide where to head next. If ever there was a perfect 4 PM Friday time waster, this is it.
Make: Watermelon Ice Cubes
This weekend, combat the worst thing about summer (sticky, oppressive heat) with the best thing about summer: watermelon. In ice cube form . Enjoy it with water if you want a tastier way to stay hydrated, or have a simple happy hour by splashing some rum or sparkling wine on the watermelon rocks.
Listen: Tunes That Makes You Feel Like You're on a Beach
Not headed to the beach after work today? Don't tell that to your imagination! Put a tiny cocktail umbrella in your coffee and tune into one of Songza's Lying on a Beach playlists. (In a different mood? We also recommend Dance Party: Beach and Pool Party .)
