I can’t believe it’s July already! Where has the year gone? I’ve moved out of my second year house and I’m back at home, prepared to do another summer at Starbucks. I’m trying out a new method of self-motivation over the summer through creating a bucket list for the two months I’ll be back, so here it is.
- Learn a new skill
- Visit a new country
- Blog more
- Get my knee sorted out
- Learn to use my new camera
- Find material on my dissertation
- Read a new book series
- Go tech-less for 72 hours
- Establish a morning routine for university
- Clear out half of my possessions
- Make one garment
- Redo my Curriculum Vitae
It’s not a huge list, right? What I want to do is make my goals more manageable, and do things I might not otherwise do, like redoing my CV or cutting down on my clothes. I mean, I have a separate list of books I’m aiming on finishing but that’s a post for another time! I think the most difficult thing to tick off the list will be the tech-less 72 hours, but I want to be able to switch everything off and just reconnect with the things I used to do before technology, like climbing trees, or scrap booking, or even just spending time with my family without being distracted by anything.
Do you have a summer bucket list? What do you hope to do over the summer?
