Summer List::

I like making lists. I would dare to say I make them a bit too often, but it's nice to set goals and write them all down! Plus, this list was fun to make :)

go running every day:: ok, ok, this particular item has ended up on every to-do list and new years resolution since jr. high. If you know me, you know I despise running. But I know that its so good for you. THIS time I think I can do it. I'll just need the motivation and perseverance :)

acquire an automobile... somehow:: hey, I can dream can't I? :)

learn to play the guitar:: I'm not sure how realistic this is, but my friends have offered to help! by the end of the summer I'd like to be able to play something!

go camping:: I haven't been camping in forever! The fresh pine tree scent, pitching a tent, campfires... sigh. I miss it!

learn to wakeboard:: last summer I decided I loooove it.. and this summer I want to actually be good at it :)

read all 6 Jane Austen novels:: alright, confession... I stole this idea from a movie.. but you have to admit, they are SO much better than twilight! wholesome reads that don't fill your mind with vampires? yes please. I really need to spend more time at the library in general... but I thought a summer with Jane would be nice :) 1 down, 5 to go!

go on a fantastic road trip adventure!:: My best friend and I have wanted to do this for a long time. We're not sure where to, but we'll figure something out :)

pick up photography again:: my 10th and 11th grade years I LOVED photography class. I want to take lovely pictures of my summer :)

spend more time with my family:: this past school year was so busy for me. Interns and High School at the same time? Crazy! Although I adored every minute of it, I do regret not taking as much time to spend with my parents and my little brother. We'll fix that :)

learn to cook:: its true, I am a terrible cook! Probably because I never had the time and/or patience to learn. Now I'm not saying I want to be the next Julia Child... but knowing some of the basics is kind of important :)

out of all the things I want to do, those are the only ones that are coming to mind. well, I'd call that a good start! Here's to a great summer :)
