Summer Bucketlist 2018

What time is it? SUMMER TIME!

Did I leave my last exam singing that song? Yes. Yes I did.


For those in education I am guessing that you are all on your summer break now. I have been on mine since the middle of June and I don’t start college again until September sometime which means I still have quite a while left.

For some people, the summer is a chance to relax and party and hang out with friends. That is my plan but my plan is to also work quite a bit so that I can actually afford to go out clubbing and saving up for university. But I also want to spend this time off productively by doing things that I haven’t been able to do because I was busy at college, such a blogging, or taking the opportunity to try new things.


I highly encourage you all to go out and do stuff that will benefit you in the future, such as looking more into the career path that you want to do. This may not apply to you but it does to me because I want to go into fashion and therefore I am doing some online courses and going to visit loads of exhibitions and indulge myself in the world of fashion. Just because school/college has ended, it doesn’t mean that you should stop learning because knowledge is so valuable and important.

Every year I create I bucketlist of 50 things that I personally want to complete before starting the new academic year. I am yet to complete one fully but I do it because it gives me things to do when I don’t know what to do, I can just consult the list and see what I haven’t ticked off. There’s so much I want to do so by having it written down in a nice handy list it means I won’t forget it. Instead of sharing exactly what my list with you, I have constructed a list similar to mine of things that you can spend this summer doing if you are stuck for ideas.

Hope you find this useful!
