Something you should know about me is that I love to be productive in my periods of relaxation. It doesn't always happen (like, never), but I always dream of vacations in which I do something creative, or pick up a new skill, or read piles of books. So, without further ado, here is today's quick, little post: my summer 2016 bucket list.
Inspiration for this post came from a balancing peach, find her summer to-do list here!!
Read many booksDuring high school I only ever had time to read books that were required for English. Done with that.
Included in those many books, read some classicsI really want to read Beloved and the Color Purple.
Buy a camera!I've been using my mom's Nikon d3100, but she (understandably) needs it back before I go to college. So I've saved up for my own!
Take lots and lots and lots of photosI desperately want to get better at photography.
Go to pretty outdoors locations (and take more photos)I live in a state with many cool places, and now that I'll have a (brief) period of time in which I won't constantly be stuck in a ballet studio, I want to go visit some of them!
Bake something really prettyLike any of this. Whenever I come home from ballet summer programs (aka: a month and a half of cafeteria food) I get really inspired to bake things for, like, a week.
Cook something really healthyTo balance out the pretty (albeit, unhealthy) baking.
Practice sewingIt is one of my dreams to someday become a person who can sew dresses and skirts for myself. Like I cannot even express how happy I would be if I got to that point with my sewing abilities. Now, though, I'm very much a beginner.
Go thrift shoppingObviously.
Buckle down on social mediaThis is by far my biggest challenge when it comes to blogging. I know that in order to move forward with my blog I need to be more active on social media. But as someone with few (okay, very few) followers and what can only be described as social-media-induced anxiety, I've been avoiding it. But hopefully this summer I'll work on it more!
Learn more blogging stuffI posted my first blog about a month and a half ago (wow?!?) and while I'm pretty happy with how things have started out, I sure do have a lot to learn! :)
What are your plans for the summer?
