Trying New Things and Sticking to them *Gulp*

I realise that by looking at the title you might think this is some kind of January new years resolution kick that will inevitability resolve in the next couple of weeks.

Well it sort of is but also isn't... I would say that I am getting my 'New Years Motivation' in the middle of May but I think this is a bit different. As I finished my second year university exams a few weeks ago I feel a sense of not wanting to waste my summer (even though I will still be working).

 The last four months have been filled with non-stop university lectures, tutorials, essay writing, studying and work. I have quite literally had time for nothing else other than work. I have not even had time for reading which is one of my favourite things to do.

Since I have been in the midst of all this I have missed having free time to work on projects of my own, projects that I can choose and enjoy rather than ones I am forced to do to pass exams.

Now that the time has rolled around where I have all the free time in the world (apart from work) I don't want to waste a minute of it!

Imagine me sitting at my desk with books and papers everywhere day dreaming and making lists of all the things I am going to do with my spare time. I have been looking forward to this moment for months. Now that it has arrived I don't want to just stay in bed and watch Nexflix all day (which I could easilly do). I want to know that I have achieved something in May-September of 2015 other than successfully completing every season of friends. I never really appreciated what great value my free time had until it was taken away from me. 

List of things I hope to achieve.

I feel this will be a good place to document everything. To keep on track and be honest. Or it will be funny to look back on this in cringe then laugh at myself which is what I do with every other 'come back post'.

Exercise more

 (Duh!) I know this is on everyone's 'self-improvement' list but I actually have managed to stick to it so far! What?! I have managed to go to the gym at least 10 times as well as swimming, running and walking as much as I can. I hope to write a more specific post about it later as well and truly getting started is the hardest part!

Start Driving

My Goal is to try and pass my test by September! This could be an ambitious one but we will see how it goes!

Blog More

I love blogging so much. I love looking back at all my old posts and photographs and reading everyone else's beautiful blogs.

Cook More

I always really enjoy cooking and baking. I just never give myself enough time to actually try something new once in a while.

There are also many other little ideas for projects and things I want to do that hopefully I will be able to write about if they seem interesting enough.

Do you have any plans for the summer? Let me know!
