"I'm planning on going to Hempfest this weekend at Myrtle Edwards Park, rolling up the cuffs on my jeans, sitting on those rocks along the water and dipping my toes in, and having a panic attack."

"You know what feels so good? Blend some blueberries with ice water, rub the juicy slush all over your chest, lie down at a dog park, and let the dogs lick you clean. Their tongues can be a little rough, but the wind chill feels nice, especially if you find a place in the shade. I know what you're thinking, but don't worry: Blueberries are not only safe for dogs, they're a rich source of vitamins, minerals, and disease-fighting antioxidants."

"I've been working in an ice-cream truck without air-conditioning at Green Lake all summer. And sometimes when the boss isn't looking, I'll snag a couple Choco Tacos and put one under each arm. Cools you right down. Keep them in their packages, though, or you'll make a mess."
—Brooklyn, 21, Phinney Ridge
"My dorm mate is gone for the summer, so I've been able to beat the heat in peace, you know what I mean? Like, it's really hard to find a good time for it when he's around. Everyone's like, 'Chad, you should come out of your room sometimes,' but I'm like, 'I'm good!'"
—Chad, 19, U-District
