My Summer Challenges

Summer Challenges

My Summer this year is destined to be a long one. What with finishing college a month ago and still having a couple of months before I start university, I've decided I need to make some plans. I've made a little list of things I'd like to get up to this summer, I'm hoping I get the chance to do them all and I plan to do an update post a month or so down the line.

READ BOOKS AGAIN
I was once an avid reader back in the day and I believe it was my schools fault for making me read novels (which I considered boring) and not having the time or brain capacity to read other books. I really feel like since I've stopped reading, I've lost all imagination...I need it back! So I plan to read my way through Summer with as many books as possible! Let me know of any recommendations below.

TRAVEL/DRIVE MORE
I've already travelled to Bulgaria to see Kris this Summer but I'd really like to travel around England or even just London to find any secret lovely places. I also want to visit family that have dotted themselves around the country, however me driving to them is a different story. I need to gain more confidence in my driving but the thought of going near a motorway petrifies me!!

GET BACK INTO DRAWING
I've really wanted for a long time now to start doing silly little sketches or patterns. It's something that will be part of my university course so I need to get some practice. I used to love designing greetings cards and wall posters! I want to get back into this and see where it takes me.

LEARN TO COOK
Strange one as I actually achieved an A* in GCSE food, what ever happened to that I don't know! I need to gather up some easy recipe books that will allow me to make cheap and yummy meals for when I'm away at uni. This summer I plan to develop my cooking skills whilst making an awful mess in the kitchen....sorry mum!

HOMEWARE SHOPPING
I've been so excited at this prospect for a very long time. I remember every summer holiday I would look at 'soon to be university students' in the shops buying all their home stuff and I always wished for that moment to come to me. I'm now here and I have no idea what to do, I need to budget but I just want it all! I can't wait to own my own bedding and kitchen utensils and cushions and everything!

So these are my mini little challenges I plan to complete! 
Have you got any of your own, I'd love to know in the comments below :)
