Last summer I went on a road trip all around the
Eastern Seabord and that's basically all I did that summer. My guidance counselor tells me to list it because since I've done other things every other summer (research, work, workshops, college courses etc) it would look weird if I left that summer blank. I don't think it really adds anything to my Application. Should I add that?

Also, I spend a lot of time writing and I have a lot of awards and activities to show that. But should I list "writing poetry" under my activities in a resume?

Also, how can I make the resume not so boring and kind of interesting to read.

hmm yes it would be weird if you left that summer blank. try not to leave the impression that you did nothing. maybe incorporate a story into your essay

as for the "lot of time writing"
i can't see how that could do anything unless you participated in some type of contest
