Lets Chat #16: Make the Most this Summer!

Hi everyone,

Well it is basically Summer (not officially but whatever).  Hopefully you like Summer.  If you've been following my blog you must know that I couldn't wait for it to get warmer outside!  

The warmth and sun has finally arrived.  This also means that if you are a student you are probably done with school.  It's ok if you aren't, I have spend most of my Summers doing various activities from SAT prep *shutters* to internships.  Hopefully you won't be as tied down as you are during the school year.  Summer is also that time of year where people make resolutions; think New Years resolutions with a stricter time constraint.  You've probably made one without  realizing it.  You might have said this summer I will read 25 books.  Or this summer I will spend loads more time outside.  Hopefully you lived up to them, but it is likely that you haven't.  But this Summer it's all going to change for the better because you are going to be strict with yourself.  

Instead of having a strict studying schedule you are going to have a strict fun schedule!  
Here are some tips (I'll try to follow them this summer along with you):

  • Make a list (and check it twice ;).  Make a list of the things you want to do.  Can't think of anything?  How about the things you wished you were doing instead of studying this school year?  
  • Be realistic (yes this deserves it's own bullet point).
  • Track your progress.  I don't mean write everything down (if that helps sure).  I mean more like keep track of your goals and the projects you set yourself up for.
  • Get off the computer!  Well... try not to spend so much time on it (unless that is one of the things you want to do this summer).  The computer is time consuming.  You can start off just checking your emails and BAM 3 hours go by.
Well those are my tips (that I will be following as well).  What do you have in store for this summer? Do you have any goals?  Comment below :)


  1. Great post! It's so relevant to me right now because I'm at the part of the summer break where I'm realizing that a month and a half has passed after final exams were over and I've barely done any of the goals that I had set for myself this summer. I've been so caught up with catching up with friends and going on vacation and working that it's been a crazy blur! But now that I've had a little time to settle, I am going to try to work seriously on my goals and get them done!

    Here's to both of us achieving our ambitions successfully!

    1. I'm glad the post was useful Deborah. Well I'm sure that having a great vacation was part of your goals (in a sense). Good luck with everything!
