A Lonely Summer and a Long List
[A picture of our 'gang' several summers back. We dressed up like the parts of a hamburger for my sister's birthday. I'm the freaky one in the green shirt with my hair in my face, looking short and stupid. My best friend's right next to me- he's the tomato. :D]
Just saying, because of my guilty conscience, this isn't my own idea: personally, I found it first on Kay's blog Cerulean Skies, and then on Shalia's blog Stop hate.Spread love☮ [both of which I adore].
With my best friend (who is also my only friend who lives nearby) leaving for the summer, and then for college, this summer will be the loneliest yet. BUT, I don't plan on making it the most boring.
There are already some things I have to do, like:
 Finish my summer work (before the last week of summer)
 Do some things to earn some money (mostly for France, but some for me)
 Practice doing the PSAT/ACT (thanks, Mom)
 Volunteer doing different things (thank again, Mom, for signing me up to do things with strangers.)
BUT, there are some things I have set on my mind to do this summer, like:
 Go to a concert (Not just ANY concert- a concert with one of my FAVORITE bands in it, hopefully, if any of them come around. Probably Warped, if my parents'll let me.)
 Play outside with my dog in the rain (Even though it might be difficult- he hates it.)
 Go on a run/jog every once in awhile (I live right next to a park, after all- it's not out of my way.)
 Go up on my hill all by myself :] (I'll explain that when I do it.)
[X] Spend a whole day reminiscing (Preferably by watching old Disney movies.) It's one way to stay happy while being sick.
 Make a new friend (OR, help a friendship blossom.)
 Send my best friend a card/candy
 Go on the Mystery Mine Rollercoaster again (Even though I was scared to death riding it the 1st time.)
 Learn how to swim
 Leave special messages in books (I actually have accidently done that before. But these will be on purpose.)
 Try a new food/type of food I'd normally never attempt
 Get a new hairstyle I actually can do (And like.)
 Write a story I actually like (I'm not very good at them)
 Go camping in my backyard
 Dance down a busy street (as long as there's music)
 Take more pictures than I ever have before
 Appreciate something my Grandma picks out for me to wear/have (I'm not so sure I can 'like' something, though.)
 Go on an adventure (Imaginary or not.)
 Have a full-blown epiphany
 Bake something (with or without setting anything on fire)
 Draw up my future plans for my future house/cottage :]
 Fully realize my self-worth; I am beautiful, and I don't need a guy to be in my life.
 Update this blog as often as possible (In general and about these experiences)
I'm going to stop it at that- otherwise, I'll have too many things to do in one summer!
