Hey everyone, so at the beginning of the summer I made a post depicting my Summer Bucket List, I decided to give you all an update on the things on the list. Let’s get started…
1.Use no Social Media for the entire summer.
I did this for about 2 and a half months. June 3rd- August 22nd (I think but don’t quote me on this). It honestly wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. Not using social media has taught me that there is more to life than constantly checking my phone for updates and seeing how many likes each of my posts gets. Funny thing… I still haven’t redownloaded the Facebook and Twitter app. I did redownload Snapchat and Instagram, but really only check Instagram once a day or less. I do however use snapchat a lot, but I used it wayyy more frequently before I gave it up for the summer.
2. Meet my Fitbit step goal 6 days per week. (goal is 12,000 steps)
Funny story… not actually that funny. I lost my Fitbit (end of July/early August) and just found it the other day, so during the past 3-4 weeks I haven’t been keeping track, however when I did know where it was (my wrist) I was meeting the 12000 step goal at least 5 days a week and almost always 6 days.
3. Take a photo a day (I may start another page on here documenting it)
This failed. I mean I was working constantly and didn’t have much time for other things… I did take at least a few pictures a day and may be putting up a page on my blog for them so keep an eye out…
4. Make a vegan cake.
Okay, I actually did this one last night. I was sitting at home with my sister and we were like “let’s bake something.” While she pushed me to make cookies, I told her that I HAD to make a cake because it was on my summer bucket list. So I found a recipe and we made it. I’m going to make a full post for it because I have a lot to say about it and actually took a few step by step pictures, so once again, keep an eye out for that.
5. Explore Chicago.
Well, I wouldn’t say I explored Chicago, but I definitely did go downtown more times than I normally would have. I went to a lot of new places… restaurants, museums, parks,etc, which is exploring enough for me
6.Spend a weekend in Wisconsin by myself
7.Go to my local farmer’s market.
8.Start doing yoga
9.Complete the one-month makeover
10. Get my passport.
7-10 did not happen… oops
11. Reorganize my room, throw out old things, get rid of clothes I don’t wear, etc.
I did a lot of going through old things and throwing out things I don’t use/need. I organized but since I’m moving into my basement within the month, I wouldn’t say everything is exactly to my liking but it will be once I’m out of this room and in the basement.
12. Make nicecream
13. Go thrifting
I actually did this quite a bit and got some super cool articles of clothing
14. Read 3 books
Working on my third as we speak
15. Run, I want to be able to run a 10k but we’ll see. My knees hate running
16.Write down every good thing that happens to me and put it in jar or here
17. Get another piercing
18. Get another tattoo
15-18 didn’t happen, unless you count my piercing that closed up and I had to re pierce myself
All for now,
