Life | Summer Plans


I originally sat down to babble about my ever-busy life, but in actual fact what I really wanted talk about was what happens when the craziness dies down. The calm before the storm of my third and final year as a student, my last summer in education. And here are my plans/advice to myself when I inevitably want to spend the summer doing nothing.

1. READ
Remember how much you used to love reading? You'd sit in your bedroom for hours on end determined to get to the last page just so you could move onto the next one. It's sad that you don't have time for that any more, and you won't next year either so make the most of it whilst you can.

2. LEARN A NEW SKILL
Learn to code, learn to draw or play that old guitar you bought years ago, learn something. Don't waste the summer sitting in the sun (or more likely behind your laptop screen).

3. EXPERIENCE THINGS
I know how tempting it is for you to sit there are blog the summer away which will admittedly be both satisfying and productive but go out, experience things that you'll remember, that you can write down. They make the best blogging material. So whether it's hiking up that hill you've always wanted to or going for a picnic in the sun. Do something. Speaking of...

4. DO SOMETHING YOU WOULD HAVE NEVER DONE BEFORE
That one thing that marks the whole summer as "That summer where I got that crazy hair cut" or "That summer where I decided to pierce my ears or dye my hair blue". The possibilities are endless, just make it memorable. Be wild. Be creative. It's what you do best. Just please don't skydive. You'll probably hate it.

5. TRAVEL
It doesn't matter where, just don't stay in a tiny little village next to a tiny little town with tiny little people. Get out once in a while.

6. REKINDLE OLD FRIENDSHIPS
Sit in the beer garden or in a friend's cabin playing pool. Do something to keep the friend's you've always had as you don't get to see them very often and when you do you realise how much you've missed them.
