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
- My number one goal is to not screw up with my bf. Lol.
- Finish the quilt I'm working on for my friends birthday that was..last week....
- Find a safe home for my new chicken friend.
- Finish the website I'm working on.
My summer goals are
-finish all the books I've bought, put on the shelf while I read somethings else, and then ignored, plus all the books on my list of books to buy
-watch all vlogsbrothers videos in order (I'm already about halfway through june)
-hang out with my friends more
-find good healthy recipes that don't taste like healthy recipes
-do more stuff that is actually important
- Have a mad hatter tea party
- Make a scapbook thingy with favourite quotes, photos, ect.
- Make movies with friends (Me and my friend are trying to re-make the lord of the rings, and are failing horribly)
- Write a book, that no one will ever read, and i will lock it away, and then forget about it and read it again
- Write myself letters for when I am 25, 30, ect, saying what i want to be/do, ect. then put them away until that date
I still really need to find some more ridiculous goals, mine are all far too reasonable.
-Buy a PS1 again. Because I fucking regret selling mine, gosh. And get a few games too.
-Buy an Xbox360 again. Once again, because I fucking regret selling mine, gosh.
-Buy lots and lots of DSBM patches, and sew them all to a bag.
-Get a second part-time job. (This may be considered ridiculous, since I already work nearly full-time)
-Complete DA:O and Amnesia again. (And terrify myself in the process)
-Two more piercings, just need to figure out what. :3
-Find my morals and maybe stop being a douchebag for a while.
-Buy 20 books (and read them aaaall).
-Save money for a small trip away.
-Stop being so unhealthy and having noodles for breakfast.
And if I don't get in to College, I can just pretend that my Summer lasts forever. Yay.
Pshh, who -doesn't- eat noodles for breakfast these days?
Delicious though they may be, but curry flavoured noodle burps aren't a nice experience throughout the day. It'd be for the better.
Are you crazy! Take it from someone who lives here, don't come to Florida! For all that you value in your life, don't come here!
Summer Goals in no particular order:
1. read a huge amount of books that I have wanted to read all school year
2. make more youtube videos
3. draw more and try new mediums
4. learn the mandolin
5. find the best unnoticed youtubers
1. get a better camera for my birthday
2. Start acting more on my ideas
3. Eradicate my terrible procrastination
4. Subtly attention whore myself to potentially have more people watch my videos.
5. Get my learners permit and not run anything over!
My goal as it has been for the last 3 summers is to do a cartwheel or a somersault or both.
I want to give away peeps! But I might not actually do this until school starts because I think the response would be better at school...
-Restart my vlog/video making
-Practice guitar more
-Write and enter the Nerdfighter 2012 short story contest as well as simply writing more
-Read. A lot. No particular gauge here, just do it :)
-Work on swimming fitness
-Participate in more Nerdfighterian discussion (as in right here, right now :)
