A couple weeks ago, I wrote down some of my thoughts on summer – some of the things I hope to experience before a chill sets into the air again and I’m back off to school. Today, I want to solidify my summer bucket list to ensure that despite my full-time job, I still live my summer to the fullest! Life’s good in the summer, and I don’t want to miss a thing. Here’s my summer to-do list!
- Have a picnic
Go to the closest amusement park– July 20
- Spend a day at the beach
Buy fresh produce at the local farmer’s market– July 4
Take a hot yoga class– June 17
Go for a motorcycle ride– June 29
Attend a music festival– Montreal International Jazz Festival: June 25-July 4 (attended ~5 performances)
- Participate in Camp NaNoWriMo
- Throw a BBQ
- Practice my Spanish on BBC Languages
Cook fresh lobster– July 10
- Take a cooking or a dancing class
Ooh I’m getting excited just writing it all down. So far this summer, I’ve already had so many amazing experiences: drinks at a live jazz club, long talks in an abandoned gazebo, reading on park benches, being showered by love by an outdoor tabby cat, poker nights with doors and windows wide open, fresh pie at midnight on an outdoor patio.. it’s been absolutely wonderful. I’ve been working hard, making friends, practicing my French (I speak exclusively French at work!) and enjoying the beautiful weather. I can’t wait to get the keys to my adorable new apartment and start making myself a home. So many exciting things to look forward to!
Tell me, what’s on your summer bucket list? Have you already had some amazing summer experiences? Let me know!
