Q: What does Planning for the future is like going fishing in a dry gulch mean?
A: @hsc95867 This is a metaphor. “A dry gulch” is a river or stream that has dried up. If you were to try to go fishing there, it is guaranteed that you wouldn’t catch any fish because there is no water. So, “planning for the future” will be just as successful and trying to fish in a stream with no water, which is to say, not very successful.

I'll explain some of the changes:

Use "summer vacation" if you're talking about the time off from school in the summer. If you're talking about time your employer always gives you off from work, "summer holiday" is fine.

"I wish to have" is correct, but "I'm hoping to have" sounds more natural to me.

Seafood is "seafood" (no "s") even if it's plural. "Shrimp" also doesn't have an "s" when it's plural.

"Besides" isn't correct here, but you can change it to "Also".

This is very well written! Nice job!
