*Peaks around the corner to make sure exams are really over.*
Hello, friends! I am now finished with my junior year of college. I am now only one year away from complete adulthood!
*Hyperventilates – casually, of course.*
I’m so excited to say my goal last week helped me to destress and keep me busy when Netflix was constantly calling my name.
*Takes a Buzzfeed poll to see how many other citizens of the internet think they will end up living with their parents after graduating.*
I now have a relatively chill summer of working in retail, house sitting, dog sitting, babysitting, doing free work for people for experience, and spending time with all the extroverts I know.
*Double checks that list, and then cringes.*
I’ll also spend a lot of alone time by the river and in all the many wonderful parks nearby.
*Fist-bumps Jesus in thanks.*
Anywho, this week starts my first week of summer! Woo hoo! And to start it off, my goal is to learn French every day!
*Scratches head in amazement of how nerdy that is.*
I’ll only be devoting twenty minutes each day to it, but it’s a nice little goal that’s super easy to accomplish when I really don’t want to do anything but eat popcorn and go on walks. Which, I honestly don’t think there’s anything wrong with those two things, but I really should keep my mind sharp (read: prepare for the day when I escape this country and need to convince people I’m not American).
So, I’m sorry (not sorry) that this week’s blog is super short, but I didn’t really want to write it since I’m supposed to be in super-chill-summer-vacation-my-old-navy-hours-haven’t-kicked-in-yet-mode. You get what you get. I hope you enjoy it.
*Steps back in shock of own sassiness.*
Have a great summer everyone! See you next week!
If you’d like to see the complete list of 52 things I’m accomplishing this year, click here to check out my first blog! For now, here’s what I’ve done and what’s to come in the next few weeks:
Get eight hours of sleep each night. Don’t worry about the homework you need to do, the shower you didn’t take, or the dishes left out. Just go. to. sleep. Spend 30 minutes each day alone in your bedroom doing something non-electronic (read, sit in silence, etc.).
This week: Spend 20 minutes learning French each day.
Next week: Write a thank you note to a new person each day. And probably mail it? They might want to read the nice things you have to say.
