So, theres a lot I want to do this summer. Its basically my last summer as a “kid” and I want to make the most of it. This time next year, I’ll be either looking or had already found a full time job in my career field and won’t have summers off like this. That means that the summer of 2019 has to be the best of the best. So I decided that in order to hold myself to these promises of creating such a great summer, I need to share with everything else the few but important things that I want to do this summer.
First, my blog. It will be my biggest priority this summer. I will be working on my it like a full time job and I will be teaching myself the ins and outs of blogging. This blog has brought me so much happiness (I can’t even put it into words). Ideas are flooding my head and I can’t wait to actually start working on them.
When I’m not blogging I want to be exploring, going on walks, and discovering new places. I have really been loving going on walks and finding new nature parks. It is so peaceful and really gives you a chance to either clear your head if you go alone or, spend some time with your loved ones talking and catching up. My family and I have been going on walks every weekend after dinner. It has ended up being a portion of the weekend that I find myself really looking forward to.
I also really want to start taking more pictures. Sounds like such a silly goal, I know. But I’ve noticed that I will do all of these fun things and go to all of these cool places but then when I get home, I realize that I had completely forgotten to take any pictures or videos. And sure, while its nice that I naturally like to “live in the moment”, I still want to be able to look back at pictures and have these little collected memories. So this summer, I will be taking pictures and videos of all the big and little moments.
The last thing I want to do is journal everyday. I’ve kept a journal since my freshman year of college but this year, I really slacked and only wrote in it a few times. Its so much fun looking back and reading the most random things from two and three years ago. My journal will be following me everywhere this summer so that I can make sure that I can get back into the habit of writing down everything.
And thats… basically it. Its a short list but its all of the little things that are really important to me right now. Just writing this post has me counting down the minutes until summer. Who else is ready for it to be here already? What are your goals for the summer? Let me know so we can encourage each other!
