As much as I love school, and I do love school, I have really been looking forward to a break. I'm very excited to get things done this summer that will make my life more organized and pretty. Today alone I have rearranged my room, hung up four more pictures (my newest obsession), decorated the boxes that hold my makeup and my brushes, cleaned the entire house and made a list of goals. I have goals for the day, goals for the week, goals for the month an goals for the entire summer!
Yes, I have been a busy little bee.
I'm also going to try to be a more sociable person. I realized lately that I've been quiet and weird as of late with my friends and loved ones, and that doesn't sit well with me. I've always been introverted, but I don't want that to effect my relationships. I think that during the school year I allow myself to get completely absorbed in my schoolwork, which is a good thing, but it is much easier to ignore the social part of my life. Weird, huh? Most people use school to socialize, but I use it to avoid it!
I'm not going to talk about everything on my lists, because some of them are personal and some of them are just boring things I have to get done, but here are a few things that are fun.
I'm going to be saving up money to move in with my boyfriend. We decided a long time ago that we weren't going to move in together unless we had the extra 'emergency' money to back us up. We are saving up 5,000 big ones before we even start looking for an apartment, which is a hefty sum for two college-students. I'm just a paranoid person, so it's more for my comfort than his.
I'm also saving up for a nice video camera, so that I can start a video blog as well as this normal... not-video blog. Plus, Becca and I would like to record our dances with a nice camera for a change.
I have a birthday coming up, but I'm not sure what I am planning. Anyone who knows me well knows that I haven't had the best run with birthday parties. Ever since I turned fourteen they have been god-awful messes, and I don't really like them anymore. I've come to really hate July 24th, with a passion. But... I think maybe going out to see a movie with my boyfriend and then having a sleep over with friends might be cool.
One other goal I have is to lower my 'to-read' list. I have about forty books I want to finish, and really need to get started. Unfortunately, I need to find a way to pay for my high-school stupidity. I used to check out books and not return them for months, if at all, so my charge is ranging on the side of 'high'. How high? I don't remember, but I'm afraid to ask. I think it's a little above a hundred.
So those are my plans for this summer, except I have many more on my list. A lot of them aren't worht mentioning, like filling out my FASFA and getting a copy of my parents tax returns, or buying a new notebook to keep my lists in (the one I have now is running low on free pages).
Right at this moment I'm going to go finish my 'today' list by throwing some laundry into the washer and folding my clean clothes. <3
