So, yesterday marked the end of yet another school year, and today marks the first full day of summer vacation. Well, for me. Then I have this cousin who still has 2 weeks to go, and my friend who got out 2 weeks ago. This doesn't seem like summer to me anymore...it just seems like a lot of wasted time. Then I got thinking...why waste it? I compiled a list of some goals...
-Read 50 books all consisting of at least 150 pages. (Ok, I can go through 3 of those a day. Let's make it 200.)
-Learn to play Jar Of Hearts on piano...that will be a challenge, as I do not currently own a piano.
-Learn ASL. Something I've been wanting to do for a while now, in an attempt to go half of a school year without speaking...which, won't happen, as then everybody else would have to...yeah.
-Leave behind 1,000 Operation Beautiful post-its all saying different things. 0 down, 1,000 to go! :D
-Have a goal that I'm 97% positive I will be unable to achieve this summer, and strive to achieve it as if my life depends on it... Well, that's obvious. Adopt a yearling filly from the BLM.
-Get my weight back down to 90 lbs using -non- harmful methods...as in, the opposite of harmful methods.
-Get a rat. Actually, 2 rats. I would name them Scabbers and Templeton, but local pet stores sell only females. So, Tina and Cinnamon it would be.
-Go veggie for the month of July.
-Take a totally random photo every day of the summer and write a poem to go with it. :)
-Get my ears re-pierced. And possibly my eyebrow...
-Say yes to every single question...even if it's like, 'Hey, wanna have sex?' or 'Want some milk?', because just because you say yes to something, doesn't mean you mean it. :)
-Get those purple contacts that do absolutely nothing to me but make my eyes look all purple and whatnot. :D
-Dye my hair redd. Yes. That's right, redd.
-Don't die. That's a really important one.
Do you have a list of unusual, strange, ridiculous, or totally normal summer goals? I'd love to steal your ideas and add on to my list! :D
So it turns out I weight 88 lbs...in that case, let's keep it that way. :)
I like your idea of having fun goals to achieve so I made a little list with some of my goals for this summer:
-Learn to ride a longboard
-Do a dance dare
-Get a kiss in front of the eiffel tower (this one might be a bit hard since I live in Sweden)
-Learn sign language.
-Don't die (I agree with you, this one feels kind of important. But it's going to be hard combining this one with trying to learn how to ride a longboard.)
I know, right? You can't go through life dead. Heh heh.. Yeah the whole Sweden-France thing'll be hard...just kiss someone in front of a photo of the Eiffel Tower maybe? lol
hahah yeah that will do!
my friend actually just turned me on to the song jar of hearts.
Another problem with it is that when it finally stays in, it's almost impossible to dye it back. x.x
This is really funny to see because I DO have a probably impossible list to do.
-Learn C++ Computer Programming.
-Learn Objective C Computer Programming.
-Learn Japanese. Reading, writing and speaking.
-Read all of One Piece Manga.
-Watch all Naruto (Shipudden included) episodes.
-Run more and get fit.
-Learn some form of martial arts. Probably Tae Kwon Do or Kenpo Karate.
-Watch all vlogbrother videos.
-Spend more time in the library (That really isn't possible, I practically live there, but it'd be nice.)
-Edit all of my friend's books (3 series, 1 with 4 books, 1 with 1 so far and the last one not written yet.)
-Finish my goal of reading 160 books in 2012 and update my goal to 200.
-Try not to die while doing all of this......
It'll be fun trying though but considering that I'm here now..... Keep in mind that I'm 14! So have that all with parents, friends, cleaning my room and my sister's biggest ever exams. Also to keep in mind is that for three weeks of this summer I will be going to live in a rural part of Ireland where I will not be allowed speak English.
Lol your list is far more impossible than mine xD Good luck ;)
Thanks! It'll be fun trying, I know I won't finish it but I may extend it for the year... I think I'll need to... Good luck with your list too!!
Well, I didn't accomplish a lot of this but I accomplished some hidden goals, ones that I never thought about. And I didn't die, well at least not yet. I think I'll make these my year goals and get rid of some, like running....
