Final Summer Goals Recap

Well summer is now over. :( I didn’t actually complete all my summer goals but I’m ok with this. I did do a lot of them! I think it was a pretty successful way of keeping me motivated and off the couch this summer.

  1. Finally paint the cheapo wooden drawers we got from IKEA. done.
  2. Make delicious popsicles in my new popsicle mold. once (strawberry lemonade). twice (strawberry frozen yogurt). thrice (strawberry raspberry vanilla frozen yogurt).
  3. Go swimming in the ocean for the first time in Vancouver. done!
  4. Ride the rides at the PNE. well we went on ONE ride. :/
  5. Watch fireworks. done.
  6. Finish my Settlers paintings.
  7. Sell a pair of shoes or a shirt or a painting.
  8. Go to one of the night markets in Richmond. donetwice, actually!
  9. Regularly visit the farmers market on Saturday mornings. oncetwicethrice.
  10. Read some books while I actually have the time. Insurgent (Veronica Roth), Let’s Pretend This Never Happened (Jenny Lawson), The Art of Fielding: A Novel (Chad Harbach), Geek Love (Katherine Dunn), Gone Girl (Gillian Flynn), currently reading The Night Circus (Erin Morgenstern).
  11. Make a nicer looking menu planning board. done!
  12. Find a new person to play board games with. done!
  13. Try a new fruit. I guess fresh figs counts for this one.
  14. Do a successful venipuncture on a real patient. I’ve done about 75 now.
  15. Make a new blog header.
  16. Take more pictures. nope.

Basically the things I didn’t finish are the more major art projects. I need the perfect combination of time and space and inspiration to get those done!

I don’t think I will make a new goals list immediately because I’m too busy with school now. But I’ll definitely do this again next summer!

Our house is a total disaster area right now. We’ve got some serious cleaning to do this morning. Happy weekend.
