Hey everyone, welcome to another post! Today’s is all about what I would like to do over my summer break off school, which is a good 7-8 weeks! I still have four weeks of school left, so I guess I’m writing this post a bit too early…but I couldn’t resist! 

Before I go back to school in September, I’ll be making an update post, to share with you all what I completed from my bucket list!

Now, what do I actually want to get up to this Summer….

Go on holiday for a week!!

It’s very likely this will be happening! Most of you might remember when I made a post on this on my old blog….my mum was hurt badly in a bus accident. Since then, she’s put a claim in and we’re suing the bus company. They’re a very good chance we could win up to 10,000 and my mum did say if we win 5,000 – 10,000 we’ll be going on holiday! We’ll find out in a few weeks….

Meet up with my friends a lot!

It’s no secret I’m very antisocial. Even my mum’s been trying to get me out with my friend more. And I’d really like to! I feel like I’m missing out on….being a teenager really. I NEED TO GET OUT MORE. It’s also really hard to meet up with my friends! Sadly I’m thinking I won’t complete this one, but it would make me so happy if I did. 

Find and eat at good restaurants with gluten and dairy free meals!

This would be awesome! I’ve done a few searches, and there’s quite a few in my area. Hopefully, I can eat at some and enjoy the meals. 

Plus, it would be a huge bonus if I ate a gluten and dairy free pizza….dying to try one!

Buy makeup!

This summer I really wanna kickstart my makeup collection and start learning how to wear it, it’s about time!

Rewrite English Lit notes 😦

Boring…but necessary. I’m not happy with the majority of the notes I’ve made in class, I’m gonna spend two days rewriting them neater and colour coding. I’m gonna be thanking myself once I reach year 11 that I did this!!

Back to school shoppingggg!

So excited for this! LOVE back to school shopping, all the stationery, binders….and since I’m going into Year 10 and starting my GCSE’s I can buy much more stuff! I swear I enjoy shopping for school more than I enjoy being in school!

Follow a blogging schedule!

Over summer break I really want to blog consistently and give you guys quality content, after all, I’m going to have much more time!

Drink lemon water every morning!

I’ve read so many things about how good this is for you, and I am trying to be as healthy as possible, so this is a must! 

Make a new friend(s)…(by possibly joining a club….?)

This one. Now, I’m 90% sure this won’t happen, but I’d be so glad if it did!! Like I said previously on this post, I need to get out more. And as well as that, I need to make more friends. I’m lonely af, all my friends have other friends, their phone’s contacts bordering on 30. I have 18. 

18!!! 😦

If I made a new friend over the summer, friends even, that I can meet up with and have a laugh, I feel like my confidence would grow tremendously. 

Join Camp Nanowrimo!!

SUPER EXCITED about this one!! Took me a while to decide I’m gonna do it, but I finally have! With the help of another awesome blogger out there ( you know who you are! ) I decided to take part in this summer’s Camo Nanowrimo! Fingers crossed my old talent for writing dusts off its cobwebs and bounces straight back into action. I already kinda have an idea of how my story’s gonna go… 🙂

Buy a guitar and start learning!

Made the decision a few days ago to stop learning piano and take up guitar instead, and I feel as if it was the right decision. I feel as if I’m gonna click with guitar much more….wasn’t really clicking with piano. I hope I learn fast, I need to be able to play well enough for my music GCSE when I’m in Year 11!

Read, read, read!!

Reading really helps me feel at ease. When I just want to escape from my life, I pick up a book. I love it and I miss it. Yes, I’ve been reading often, but I want to read more!! I’m aiming for 10 books over the 7 weeks. 

Go shopping!

Ahhh retail therapy. I think I’m very due for a session… 😉

Hopefully, with friends, I can go shopping in town for some new clothes and more. I would love that.

Look after myself…emotionally and physically.

This school year, this whole year has been the roughest I’ve had. I haven’t been vocal about it all, to friends especially. With what I’m going though…people just don’t understand. Even if they really want to, they never will. It’s such a lonely thing to go through. 

This year has left me exhausted. Hopefully, over the 7 weeks I can recharge. I’m hoping with all my heart that my year will improve. Plus, I’m hoping I get my hospital letter for my referral to a clinic I need to go to. 

Get a kitten….?

To be honest I’m not even sure if we’re still doing this. We haven’t talked about it for a while. I hope we still are, getting a kitten will definitely add some light into my life. 

Cinema trips!!

I love watching a good film in the cinema, boosts my mood like crazy. I’d love to watch a few movies in the cinema. Which cinema do all you UK readers prefer…Odeon or Cineworld?

…And just have fun!!

No matter what I end up getting up to over the summer break, I just hope I have a fun, relaxing time. And I hope all of you do too!

  1. I LOVE these goals, Jas! I totally agree with reading — I’ve already read eight books this month and I have SO MUCH MORE TIME! And yay! You’re doing Camp NaNo! I hope everything goes well for you, and be sure to write a post about what you’re writing! 😉 Oh yes, I definitely need to get together with my friends this summer! And my mom drinks lemon water every morning and she says it’s been making her skin softer and all sorts of things. 😛

    WHAT YOUR SUMMER IS ONLY 7-8 WEEKS LONG??? Wait… *counts* 1, 2, 3, 4, 5… 6, 6, 8, 9… 10. Wow. 7-8 weeks sounds like it’s really short but it’s… not. XD

    • Thanks May! I’m very sad to announce that I’ve only read three books this month😭😭My reading game is horrible, I NEED to step it up!! And this summer break is the best time to do it!
      I’m soooo excited about it! Scared but excited😄 Thank you, I hope everything goes well for you as well! But I have no doubt that it will, you’re amazingggg at writing! Oh that’s such a good idea, I think I will write a post about it😊
      I knowww, so ready for super soft skin, baby butt status…that sounds so weird😂
      Yeah😔😔 UK schools are so mean with breaks, they used to be 10 weeks believe it or not! But they keep reducing the break we have😭😭 It’s still ok though, I’ll definitely take 7-8 weeks away from hell!
      …I mean school, totally meant school *nervous laughter*

      • Well, you’re still in school, so three books is understandable! XD And aww, you’re so sweet! I’m assuming you’re a really good writer as well (since I haven’t seen any of your writing yet *wink wink*). Please do write a post!

        Aw, that’s sad! Do you get more breaks during the school year though? And what…? No… School totally isn’t hell…OOOOO TO THE FABULOUS STUDENTS AND HOMEWORK LOADS!!! XD

      • True! Counting the days until I’m free…(27 days to go😄)
        Aww that’s nice of you! To be honest I haven’t written anything in such a long time I’m not too sure if I am a good writer or not😂 Guess I’ll have to find out! Definitely will, in the next week or two hopefully😊
        Yeah we do have more breaks, like Christmas, Easter (that are both two weeks long) and a few random one week breaks before a new term! It’s a lot but kinda not😭
        Yeah…kinda harsh of me to compare it to hell!😂 It’s ok, sometimes. Maybe hell’s second cousin?😂

  2. This bucket lists sounds awesome! I’m also experimenting a bit with makeup at the moment and, like, trying to learn how to do eye makeup. IT MAKES ME FEEL SO GLAMOROUS I LOVE IT. Even if I’m not very good at doing things without my glasses on haha. I’ve done Camp NaNo a bunch of times but I don’t think I’m doing it this year — I dunno, I’d like to use the holidays to write a bit because I haven’t done any in ages haha. I hope that you can meet up with your friends and go on holiday! ❤

    • Thank you!😊 You are? I’m finding it so hard at the moment! Hard to actually get makeup😂 I’m too shy to buy some with my mum (for some odd reason) and I’m too shy to go alone and get the people that work in the store to help me, because I have no clue what to buy! So far I only have a brow pencil and mascara😭 I hope I do get more over the summer, I wanna feel glamorous!!
      Talking about glasses…I wear some soon! And I feel like doing your makeup when you wear glasses will be much more harder if you don’t, and wouldn’t it be harder to tell that you’re wearing makeup with glasses? Why is the world of makeup so complicated???😭
      How did Camp NaNo go for you? I don’t know what to expect, I’m so new to this!
      Thank you, I hope so too! Yay to socialising!

      • Aw, I feel you, I used to have that problem & I bought a lot of stuff online! But I’ve since talked about it with my mum & friends which has made it a lot easier to go shopping with people. Haha I often only do my eyebrows! (But I like my eyebrows a lot.) I actually really love my glasses — it depends what kind you get/prescription but I think mine makes my eye makeup look nicer. 🙂 I just can’t see very well putting it on!
        I found Camp NaNo really fun — less stressful than actual NaNoWriMo. It’s cool to get into the swing of writing! 🙂

      • I should do the same, hopefully it makes things a whole lot easier with me as well!
        Aw you’re lucky you have good eyebrows! Mine are pretty much nonexistent😭😂
        Yeah that’s true, maybe at my next opticians appointment I can get new ones, fingers crossed! I’ve heard that a lot, that Camp NaNo is much less stressful than NaNoWriMo, so glad that Ive picked the right thing to get into!

  3. You’ve got so many goals!!! I have one more week of school and then winter holidays for two weeks. And I’m so excited to have time to blog and update you and my other followers and whats been going on and why I’ve been so so busy!

  4. Ugh reading this post makes me so sad since it’s not summer here anymore (my school year literally started a week ago) ugh, anyways, I hope you can do all of your plan, if not all, the majority!

  5. Wow! Looks like you’re about to have an amazing summer! Most of these are the same with me, actually! Although i wish i was getting a kitten… I’ve got two dogs though so I don’t think they’d agree with it 😂😂

  6. These were some awesome things on the list and I definitely agree with you on most of them and consider them for myself. In my opinion, I like Odeon better than Cineworld cause for me, Odeon is closer and I’d only go to Cineworld if I was going to a shopping centre and wanted to watch a movie after (cause Cineworld is pretty much only in shopping centres), but overall both of them are awesome. Good luck on your goals! 🙂 ❤

  7. This is such a positive list it’s actually inspired me to try and make something of my summer. Going back into Year 13 isn’t the nicest of thoughts but you know, maybe it won’t be all that bad. I love the list and hope you achieve what you want to achieve! 🙂
    Prepping for the upcoming academic year is an interesting process!
