So I'm having a bit of writer's block. I wanted to write a blog post but I didn't know what to write about. So one of my friends suggested I write about what my goals are for the summer. So that is what I'm going to do.
1. Read more books for pleasure
As I mentioned in a previous post, my goal is to read 20 books by the end of the year. I'm on my first one at the moment so I've got 19 to go! When I started this goal I figured I would have to read 2 books a month to reach my goal. At the rate I'm going, I'll be lucky if I get to read 1 book per month. So hopefully in May, when the semester is over, I can focus on reading more.
2. Get a job working with kids
I'm still going to keep my job at Sonic, but I would also like to find a summer job where I could work with kids. If I were applying for a teaching job today, I wouldn't have any real experience with kids. About a month ago I found a bunch of places near me that I could possibly work at so hopefully I will hear back from them!
3. Save more money for the wedding
As of right now, I'm only able to work 4 days out of the week and I haven't been getting that many hours since we've been kind of slow. I'm looking forward to the summer because I will be getting a lot more hours in and making a lot more in tips! My plan is to divide my tips in half everyday- half goes in my checking and half goes towards the wedding. Then my paycheck every two weeks, maybe I could divide that in half and put half in my checking and half in my regular savings, cause I'm gonna need to start saving money to pay back my college loans.
4. Get engagement pictures taken
Well, first my fiancé and I have to decide on a photographer, but once we do that I definitely want to get our engagement pictures taken. We have a little over 2 years till our wedding, but I just wanna get the pictures taken and out of the way.
5. Go to the beach
The last time I was at the beach was in '09, so I definitely want to get there this year, enough said!
6. Go to an amusement park
I haven't been to Hershey Park since ‘09, so I really want to go there this summer!! But I wouldn’t mind going somewhere else like Six Flags. My aunt and uncle gave my fiancé and I coupon book and I was looking through it the other day and saw a buy one get one admission for Six Flags. I’ll just have to find the closest one (which I think is in New Jersey) and see if one ticket for there plus the amount of gas (since it is farther than Hershey Park) is cheaper than two tickets for Hershey Park, the gas, and parking. When I was at Hershey Park last, the parking was $30!! That is ridiculous!!!
I think that about sums up my goals for the summer. If you have any suggestions for me like any fun summer dates or books to read, leave me a comment and let me know!!
