School is Finally Out: Time to Make My Summer Goals
We all have experienced that joyful feeling of completing another school year. I have felt it both as a student and now as a teacher. With the summer break comes my summer goals. I know I have a short time in which I usually want to get a lot done. It feels good to accomplish things and mark them off of my list.
Some of the things I put down on my list were:
1. Write, at least 1-2 hours a day.
2. Blog 3-4 times a week.
3. Clean and organize my bedroom and my books.
4. Exercise every day. (Which I haven't done yet today but will later when it cools down.)
5. Help my kids re-organize their bedrooms and go through their things.
6.Clean out things in the basement; organize and dejunk.
7. Rotate food storage.
8. Help my son in passing off his cub scout things and my daughter with her Personal Progress goals.
9. Do some fun activities with my kids and my parents.
10. READ A LOT!!!!!!!!!!!
I was so proud of myself when I looked back at my goals. I know I will be able to accomplish several of these things. At least I have a plan, where before there was nothing there. I wanted to read about other peoples summer goals. I browsed the internet looking to see what other people had planned. Many people (similar in age and circumstance as me) had goals much like mine. The funniest goals I found were from teen-agers (no names listed). They made my good intentioned goals seem rather boring.
~~Eat stale popcorn
~~Catch a blind squirrel
~~Sing in a public bathroom
~~Scuba dive in a pool
~~Play hide and seek with Pierce Brosnan and Tyra Banks
~~Gain 190 pounds
~~Teach Jerry Springer Salsa dancing
~~Get granola bars banned
~~Drink diet coke over a bowl of cereal
~~Square dance on my Dining table
~~Style Britney Spears' hair
~~Do Paris Hilton's nails
~~Meet the travelocity gnome
~~Learn how to say "Elvis has left the building"
~~Spend as much time on the internet as possible.
~~Do a little internet clothes shopping..
~~Get out of the house at least three times.
~~Reread the Harry Potter books.
~~Have some human contact.
~~Watch at least 15 movies.
~~Find Clementines in a grocery store.
~~Finish painting my room.
~~Hang I Love Lucy pictures all over the bathroom.
~~Figure out a place to hang those Harry Potter posters that look stupid wherever I put them.
~~Sleep as little as possible.
I had to laugh at most of them, but I did like the idea of re-reading the Harry Potter books again.
Speaking of laughing, I found this video on facebook and posted it to my wall there. It is so hilarious, I had to also post it here.
Have a good laugh and a great summer!!
