Summer To-Do List

So, on Wednesday (the 16/11/2013) I finished my first year of uni. I packed up my room at college, and came home for the summer. That's pretty insane, isn't it? Ok, maybe it's not insane for most of you. I mean, most of you are probably still in school for at least another five-ish, six-ish months. But this time last year, a whole lot of things were different.

For one thing, I was in another country. Yes, you read that correctly. It's been a full year since the European Adventure (and I still haven't finished putting pictures up because I'm lazy).

I was a pretty different person too. Or, at least I think I was. Uni can do that to a person. In terms of stress management, not much has changed. But I've also made great, great friends. I've learnt more about myself. And my self-confidence is (ever-so-slowly) evolving.

But now I'm on a ridiculously large summer holiday. And (other than working) I have not a whole lot to do. So what do I do? Make a project list, of course. Lists are fantastic, and I thoroughly recommend you make one, one day.

Things I Want to do in Summer:
1. Write/Finish writing a novel
2. Clean and move around my room
3. Cook stuff
5. Finish my reading goal
6. Do WiiFit/Exercise
7. Re-read Harry Potter

I don't know if I'll add things as I go but this is my basic to-do list. I'm pretty happy with it. I think it's all achievable. In fact, I've already completed one of them.

So, I don't know if you know this about me, but sometimes I get a little restless. I don't actively love change, but I do appreciate it. I cut a lot of my hair off earlier this year. So for me I suppose, the next thing to get the cut was my room.

The basics are still there: a lot of my furniture has remained. Same with the painted walls. Things have just been moved.

Things are still a little messy. I really like it though. I feel like my room looks a lot more open. I'm very happy with it.

In regards to everything else on the list, I'm very slowly making progress. It'll be a good summer though. I can tell. And Christmas is coming up too! That's a little exciting.


  1. That painting in the background of the last picture is beautiful. Did you paint it?

    1. I wish! Nah, it was birthday present from a friend (who didn't paint it either. She bought it online, I think?)
