SUMMER GOALS

Hi everyone!
It’s been two months since my last exam, and because I’ve been working hard on a few Summer goals, I thought I’d take some time to write about them on my blog.

When Summer comes around, I always plan to be completely productive – never wasting a single bit of time, but of course, the reality is never as simple as the initial idea. In all fairness, I haven’t really been productive until a couple weeks ago.

Luckily, in the last month or so, I’ve started to really get everything together, and with still two months left until I return to university, I’m hopeful I’ll be able to complete most things I wish to achieve this Summer.

Here are a couple of things I planned to complete at the end of exam season, and how far my goals have developed since then…


Summer Goals

  • Get a jobSince the end of last month, I am officially employed, working as a Sports and Leisure Assistant at a school. I may be working a second job this month too, thanks to my mum’s work as they currently need someone to do filing, faxing, organising, etc.

  • Revise Driving TheoryI originally passed my driving theory nearly two years ago, but because I haven’t taken lessons yet, I will need to eventually re-take my theory. Because of this I’m doing some revision flash cards now. I’ve only done three/four sections so far, but I will probably have them ready in time for a re-take in October.

  • Finish my Open University CoursesI thought, if I had enough spare time, I’d do a couple of online courses from June-September. So far I have completed a course called Changing Law: Mental Capacity Legislation, and I am still working on Beginner’s French and Children and Violence: An Introductory, international and interdisciplinary approach.

  • Eat wellI’m just going to be honest, I am failing this objective miserably.

  • Finish editing my first manuscriptThis may be the seventh or eighth time I have edited down my manuscript, in order to make it as perfect as possible. I’ve decided that this Summer will be my final read through and edit. I have about one hundred pages left to read [*I’m on chapter 19 out of 27*], and hopefully after this I can just leave it alone and continue to submit it to various places.

  • Finish writing my second manuscriptThis is another objective that is a bit hit and miss at the moment, mainly because I cannot decide whether to write the sequel to my first manuscript or start something entirely new. Because of this I am like three chapters into both, and have hit writer’s block.

  • Visit friendsI have visited a couple of friends during my time off, but not many. We’ve been to places such as Star City, where we played Mini-Golf, and Stratford-Upon-Avon’s Butterfly Farm.

  • Work on my WordPress blog and photographyDuring May (exam season), I only posted one blog article that month. Since then, I have tried to keep a strict schedule, which has been going a bit hit and miss. It’s hard to think of ideas and actually stick to them sometimes. But I’m still aiming to push some type of blog pot out every three/four days.

  2. Good luck with your goals! I need to set my august ones (and perhaps revisit my July ones and see how much and what I’ve completed). Like yourself, I should probs focus on eating better and taking care of my health, and investing more time in my blog!
