  • Bask in the glory of not having a busy schedule and school work
  • Go to the beach and smell that sea air I love oh so much
  • Visit my friends in Ireland… Gosh they’re great
  • Maybe I’ll go on a tiny road trip
  • Finish that story I’ve been working on
  • Find Niall Horan in person
  • i-love-summerCook some fancy stuff… mostly pasta
  • Continue some of that dynamite research I started during the year
  • Finally achieve that flawlessly gorgeous tan that every girl secretly desires
  • Exercise with all of that free time I’ll have
  • Plan a trip for next year
  • Refinish an old dresser and sell it for millions
  • Spend a ton of time with my friends who I adore
  • Have all of my ducks in a row for grad school… Be so proactive that it hurts! #studious

  • Looked at pictures of Niall Horan
  • Discovered Bob Evans’ microwaveable mac and cheese bowls… conveniently sized for one person!
