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.

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.

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!!

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.

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!

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 :)
