Targets for a fabulous summer...

So today is the day of my last exam of uni for the year. After this I have just one year left until I am let loose into the outside world. Eeeek!

I'm not going to lie, this is a scheduled post - I will no doubt currently (and hopefully) be celebrating finishing for the year in style, probably being carried from one pub to the other, before crawling into bed fully clothed with a false eye lash stuck to my face.

I always feel as though I don't make the most of my summer. I either waste it away saying I'll do something tomorrow and it never gets done, or I find that I'm working every hour that god sends to see me through my next year of uni, that I miss out on catching up with all my favourite people.

This year I really don't want this to happen. I've decided that, in order to focus my mind on what I want to do and what I want to get out of this summer, to set myself some targets.

Its all very well setting targets for myself, but what is going to make me fulfil them? I thought that by putting them on here, I'm sort of commiting myself to my readers and followers. I've also decided that I will do a monday round up of everything that I have been up to in that week. That gives me the opportunity to not only add another series to my blog in a style that I have never really tried before, but it also means that I will hopefully have a fabulous summer with lots of memories.

So what are my targets?

To get a second part time job
Although I said that I don't want to spend the whole of my summer working as much as I can, I do have to bare in mind that I do have another year of uni to pay for, and lets face it, to have a good time I need mulla! I do already have a part time job in a bar, where I have been given extrra hours for the summer, and I have also applied for a couple of others, so hopefully something will come of them

To catch up with old friends
So many of my friends are at university now or have full time jobs, that I find that I only see a couple of them on a regular basis now. Although, if I'm honest, I'm quite happy to see the back of some people I went to school with, it does make me said that I have completely lost touch with others.

To spend some quality time with the boy
The past year has been a hard year with the boy to say the least. The pressure of living away from each other, my study and his full time job has definitely put a strain on me. I still enjoy and love every minute I got to spend with him, but I have definitely felt a negative effect for not seeing him more than I have. This summer I really want to make the most of having me and him time alone. I love that boy more than I could ever tell you - we need to make the most of it while we can

To volunteer
Although I have done some volunteering this year while at uni, I haven't given as much time as I wanted to due to all the work I have had. I love volunteering, and having worked for a children's charity for a year myself, I understand how much volunteers are needed.

To spend lots of time on my blog
I want to really want to put some quality time and effort into my blog this summer, including weekly updates, new series and to carry on with some good quality posts.

To lead a healthier lifestyle
Not only do I want to concentrate on my diet, but I want to improve my lifestyle all around - for example going to bed earlier, getting up earlier, walking everywhere rather than driving, etc. I have an important year at uni coming up, and I want to start it with a healthy body and healthy, fresh mind.

To travel
Aswell as going on holiday with they boy (only a month to go eeek) I want to book some other holidays to try and see more of what the world has to offer. I'm not just talking holidays abroad, I want to go on day trips in my area, camping weekends away, a couple of days in a new city, anywhere and everywhere.

So there it is. My list of targets - rather longer than I thought it would be! Hopefully I will be able to fit all of this in!

Have you got any targets you would like to set yourself? How about you do a similar post and send me the link, I would love to see it!

Now you'll have to excuse me, I'm off to find another Gin and Tonic to celebrate.

Lots of Love
