The Summer Bucket List.

16 Jun

Since sometime in high school, I’ve started every summer by writing up a summer bucket list, and every summer I manage to never fully complete said list.

EVER.

That being said… well… honestly, I doubt this year will be an exception. I always write up a list of hundred things, and as I am a fairly lazy individual, I’m lucky when I’m able to finish twenty things on the list (most of which are usually television related). This year I’m aiming my sights on completing at least half of the list. I tried to make this list a little bit more, shall we say, doable. So. Fingers crossed.

SUMMER. LET’S BEGIN.
