To spare myself this agony, I keep a little to do list. Every time I think “I need to do this in summer vacations”, I write it down somewhere and keep the list for when the actual day arrives! In order to keep myself motivated in regards to my summer goals, I thought I’d share them down below 🙂
My summer break is going to be 4 weeks long, spanning Ramadan where I’m going to be fasting, so I can’t really decide to do things like “go out” or “go to the zoo” because that’s just a terrible idea, fasting and doing physical activity, so I had to cut down on quite a few things. My brother is also busy with studying for the MCAT so I doubt that my family would go traveling anywhere- where the only option literally is Karachi. Anyway, without further ado, here’s a random compilation of things I want to get done!
Write 5 blog posts a week// I just really need to keep things in reserve. The day I press publish is the day I sit down and type everything out, usually on a whim. It would be really stress relieving for me to have a cache of blog posts that I could publish whenever I’m busy- which happens an awful lot! So during this summer, I’d like to write up a bunch of quality posts before hand! Initially I was going for 1 blog post a day, but that seemed a bit too much 🙂
Write 2 pieces of poetry// It’s been forever since I’ve written anything? I’d always wanted to write stories and publish books and would you believe it or not, I was a compulsive poetry writer when I was eleven. I seem to have thrown out those notebooks (we moved around a lot back then) though so I’m going to have restart on things. 2 seems like a great number to work towards.
Work on my art journal// I’ve been wanting to do this since forever? I really want to get my art game back up, so I’ve been journaling a bit, here and there, mixing between scrap-book and art journal styles. I’ve got a ton of supplies scattered here and there, some incomplete, some ready to use, so this task also means going out and shopping for a bunch of things like more paint brushes, white acrylic paints, glue, etc.
Re-study Neurosciences and GIT// Those are the latest things I studied and I really brush up my knowledge on those subjects. We’re currently studying GIT (Gastro Intestinal Tract) and to be very honest, I haven’t been studying at all because 1. I’m fasting, how do you expect me to go to school AND study?? 2. I was sick for a few days and that really throws me off my study routine. So I need to make sure I have all my studying handled and up to date!
Finish medical statistics course// I started this course on medical statistics and it’s supposedly a total of 24 hours long and I think I’ve only covered… maybe one hour?? Yes, I’ve barely done anything and I should really get a move on in that department. It’s not a hard course (I think) just a bit of math and stuff and I often have to rewind the video if I was busy doing something else because then I don’t understand a word of what’s happening.
Make or buy Eid cards and mail them// I actually got this idea from my friend (wink wonk wink) who was just voicing out ideas to me and I thought ‘hey that’s actually pretty cool, lemme steal that’ but now that I’ve stolen it, I have no idea what to do and I kind of feel like Scott Lang at the moment. I’ve got this amazing idea (suit) which I stole from a super genius but now I think it might be way too much for me to handle. Should I toss the idea (suit) back over the fence or keep it for another day?
So those are my main goals for this summer break! Of course I haven’t included my Ramadan goals here cause those are a completely separate thing, which consist of mostly re-memorizing a lot of stuff I memorized when I was like, ten but don’t remember that well right now. It’s going to be hard but I need to get it done.
So what are your plans for your summer break? Any travel plans? Book plans? Shopping plans? 🙂
