Home / DIY / It’s Summer, Now What?

 

Summer is finally here and I plan on celebrating every minute of it. To get the most out of my vacay, I decided to put together a list of all things I want to accomplish in the next three months.

1. Challenge your intellect.

Go to a museum, see a good movie, or read a good book.  I’m a literary dork so I plan to read a lot of good books. I just started reading My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult.  It’s sooo good.  I don’t want to put it down.

2.  Challenge your creativity.

Learn to cook a thai dinner, write a short story, take a dance class. As for me, I love getting crafty and plan on sewing myself a maxi dress.  Got my fabric and my pattern all picked out.

You can also get all sorts of DIY kits from places like Etsy and learn how to make thinks like these cute pendant necklaces.

3. Challenge your body.

Boost your confidence and your health.  I’m usually an outdoorsy person, but I spent a lot of time on my butt this semester with homework and finals. I set a realistic goal of running 10K (about 6 miles) by the end of the summer.   I found a great schedule for beginners. Anyone want to join me? 🙂
