Things to do during the Summer

This is a list of things I can do during the summer if I ever find myself bored or wanting to do something fulfilling.

1.Choose atleast one written type of source to document what your summer experience. It could be through online blogsites, journal, diary, or a saved document. In addition, be sure to take a picture of anything and write about it or make a note even if it is the most random thing. Make a Summer Scrapbook & collage.
2. Look at pictures taken from the digital camera and old cameras and do something with them. Do a collage, poster, or something creative.
3. Choose one of the summer challenge/wellness goals.
4. Post atleast one freelance writing.
5. Pick 5 careers you see yourself doing. Eliminate three and describe why you sticked with those. Start looking for jobs that lead to those careers and how to prepare for them after graduation.
6. Apply or start working/interning.
7. Pick a topic that you are interested and become a master in it.
8. Learn how to play any kind of instrument.
9. Go see a play.
10. Visit a museum.
11. Try to go to a festival or a concert.
12. Watch the sunrise and sunset.
13. Go to a midnight screening of a movie.
14. Sketch something that you randomly admire.
15. Read a book that a friend recommends.
16. Learn how to put make up on and to not fear it.
17. Participate or make a scavenger hunt.
18. Do a Marathon of some sort. Game, Movies, etc.
19. Have a bubble bath.
20. Write a thank you letter or "thing" to atleast 3 people or organizations you appreciate in life.
21. Do something you have always underminded yourself in and prove yourself wrong.
22. Make a portfolio for college freshman, sophomore, and junior year!!

Accomplishment

This Friday I did a couple of things that I been meaning to do and I just concentrated on completing those tasks. After I had finished doing them and in a faster time and manner than anticipated, I feel quite happy. I like doing things and finishing them. It relieves me from pressure. I would not have to worry about finishing it in the future or eventually not getting it done. One of the things that I did was that I applied for a internship for one of the Assembly Members. I have not heard back yet, but I am still glad that I got as far as submitting my application. I like this feeling of accomplishment and will try to do more things.

Planning ahead

Today, I began developing my summer plan and it is going very well. I already have so many ideas. There is so much I want to do or think I should do. It will be quite a interesting and productive summer. I probably wont finish the list as early as I hope, but earlier than summer for sure. Gosh, I really do love planning ahead.

Superbowl Day

Today is SuperBowl Sunday, yet I have no exciting plans for it. I would love to watch the game and eat delicious snacks with friends. However, I have many assignments that I must complete by tomorrow and by watching the SuperBowl a significant portion of my remaining time would be cut off. Now, back to working on that paper.

February Beginnings

I have decided to get back into blogging again. Before I used a Xanga, but, instead of going back and using it to blog again, I will save Xanga for as my past blog of my teenage years. This will be my new blog. I hope to update as frequently as possible. My posts would include what has been going on in my life, plans (such as lists, events, and, etc), and other random blog posts. I also maintain other social media websites as well. I have a twitter. I will primarily use twitter to get in touch with what is going on in the world. I use Facebook to get in touch with friends and to know about events on campus. I also have a Tumblr, but that is more of a personal usage and it's a place where I can relate and reflect some of my feelings to others. My hope for this blog is to update frequently to help me remember my past and experiences, as well as to improve my writing skills.
