My summer bucket list

Now that the summer holidays have well and truly started, I’ve been thinking about what I want to get out of them. Usually, I don’t put this much thought into it but since it’s the bridge between 6th form and Uni, I want to make sure I live them to the full. I’ve compiled a list of random aims and challenges, some of which are more aspirational than others, which I hope to achieve in the next 8 weeks. To make it a bit more aesthetically pleasing, I’ve divided them into loose categories too!

I’ll be ticking them off as I go, so check back at the end of the summer to see how I got on!

Sport:
  • Complete the 3 peaks challenge within 24 hours
  • Go snorkelling
  • Run barefoot on the beach somewhere
  • Swim 3km in one session
  • Do another parkrun
  • Get a parkrun PB

run on the downs with Immy and Alice

Challenges & experiences:
  • Make a bucket list 
  • Pass my driving test
  • Read 12 books (this might be slightly cheeky as I’ve already read 3 in the past week)
  • Keep a diary for interrailing
  • Make a photo board in my bedroom
  • Read at least 1 Spanish book
  • Catch up with old friends
  • Speak more French
  • Make a scrapbook for interrailing

highly recommend this book: Life after Life (Kate Atkinson)

And that’s it! For now, at least. I’ve never actually made one of these before so I’m not sure if I can even call it a “bucket” list. Either way, it was fun to do and I hope you found it fun to read! Maybe this has even inspired you to make your own, or at least think about what you want to do (or even accomplish) this summer. I’d love to hear any of your summer goals!

P.S. I wanted to thank you all for your lovely & thoughtful messages today and yesterday. I’m feeling much better and ready to complete the 3 peaks challenge on Tuesday!
