A lot of things are different this summer. I have officially graduated from high school, and I am heading off to college in the fall. I will be turning 18, of legal adult age to be... an adult, which is scary to me. I have a boyfriend, for the first time in years, and this one isn't a loser at all. He's my partner in crime, and has a bit of adventure in him, too. And, unlike all of the other years, I have both the motivation and time to get all of my things on my summer list done. So, here it is, in a draft form, my list of things to do in less than 3 months.

  1. Worship Bon Iver from afar (I had planned on seeing them in concert, but due to some circumstances, like age/location/lack of money, I can't do that. Maybe next summer...)
  2. Dye my hair with Kool-Aid (maybe just dip-dye, red)
  3. Go to Danville, KY again (for my last summer program's reunion- this one will occur)
  4. Make a terrarium
  5. Learn how to make friendship bracelets
  6. Go to the beach, A LOT (I plan on doing this when we go on vacation)
  7. Get a sweet tan
  8. Hike my hill
  9. Make RC floats with friends
  10. Make a rainy day into an ALL DAY movie day
  11. Go to Forecastle!
  12. Watch several of Dylan's baseball games
  13. Go to a flea market, and find precious things for cheap
  14. Make a pillow/blanket fort
  15. Have a picnic
  16. Make s'mores
  17. Go barefoot for a week
  18. Experiment with strawberries (or at least eat them a lot)
  19. Bob for apples
  20. Go to at least one of the Cincinnati Observatory "parties" at night
  21. Visit the Carmi, Illinois movie theater
  22. Sing in front of people (okay, maybe just Ryan or Dirk haha)
  23. Put oldies on my iPod
  24. See a play put on by a local company
  25. Make my major concern in life to be pleasure
  26. Learn how to make sweet tea from the master
  27. Buy a pet fish for college
  28. Go to the drive-in movie theater up in Ohio
  29. Collect earrings and bracelets
  30. Write in my journal- poetry, stories, lists- and blog more often
  31. Wake up real early and watch the sun come up one day
  32. Go to the art museum
  33. Throw a birthday party, or just a regular, no-occasion party
  34. Experiment with new clothing styles
  35. Take more photographs
  36. Eat more fruits
  37. Get all of my things ready for college
  38. Overall just experiment with my creative outlets
  39. Try to spend less time on the computer and my iPhone
  40. Leave special messages in books
  41. Read for fun
  42. Be happy :D
So, that's my list for now. There might be some additions, some... subtractions. It's flexible, it's lovable, and it's mine.

Catch you all later,
