They say a picture is worth a thousand words, right?
1. Beach sunset/sunrise pic
They’re just so pretty, who wouldn’t want to share with a hundred of their closest Snap friends?
2. Lake view
From a boat, from the deck at the lake house, from the edge of the water (since it’s too damn cold to take a swim but so damn tranquil you have to document it), or all of the above. Often accompanied by the famous…
3. Mountain view
Snow-capped peaks even in July? Yes please!
4. Swimsuit selfie
Friends optional, but highly recommended. If you’ve got it, flaunt it, right? (P.S. You’ve all got it!)
5. Selfies with friends
Swimsuits optional, but strongly encouraged.
6. Hotdog legs
It’s not summer until someone’s Snap story causes a “are these hot dogs or legs?” debate.
7. Top of a Ferris Wheel
Aka the top of the world. Basically. Also, props to you for the clear split second snapshot in the wiggly chair.
8. Friend’s pets
You’ve all been away at school so long, your friends probably forgot what they looked like. And literally everything they do is adorable so obviously everyone should get to see.
9. Summer parties
Almost as good as college parties, but with a completely different (also wonderful) group of people.
Between vacation food, mom’s home cooking, and grandma’s baked goods, it’s enough to get your mouth watering every time you check your phone.
11. Work selfies
Just because you’re stuck indoors doesn’t mean you can’t be part of the fun! Of course, a work selfie is never complete without a #werk or #worklife thrown in.
12. View out the car window from the passenger seat
The altitude, weather, speed, and geofilters are always a nice touch.
13. View out a plane window
Just so all your friends know what the clouds look like from the top. Bonus points if you get the wing in there!
14. Selfies with random family members
Most likely grandparents or cousins. They’re probably all people that nobody on your friends list knows but they should definitely see who you’re with at any given time of the day.
