8 University Summer Break Goals

When I am in education I feel like I have no time for myself. I don't have time to do any of my interests or hobbies, and feel like if I spend time to myself then I'm wasting time where I could be writing an essay or revising for an exam.

Fortunately, I am now on summer break. All my exams are over and I have had all of my marks back which means I can finally relax. It makes me very happy that I don't have to do any University work until September! So here are 8 goals I want to meet in my time off:

  •  Read books- I've loved reading since a kid but whether it be GCSEs, A Levels or Uni, if I'm reading textbooks and doing assignments and exams, I just can't read. So, for this Summer my goal is to read at least 2 books, although I'm sure I can get through a lot more!

  •  Go on Holiday- In my gap year I had the luxury of being able to go on holiday whenever I wanted to, providing I could get the time off from work. But now I don't have such a luxury! I'm having a week away just in the UK with some family and then I will hopefully have something booked abroad with my friend. Need that relaxation!

  • Clean My Room- I hate to admit it, but during University I really slacked on keeping my room clean. I've managed to do a massive, 9 hour clean out of my room since finishing University which was such a relief. But my goal is to keep that cleanliness up!

  • Clear Out All Drawers and My Wardrobe- My wardrobe became so full I was hanging things off the doors and my drawers are over spilling. So my goal is to declutter every drawer in my room and tidy them. So far I've managed to clear out and tidy my make up and clear out my wardrobe. I have about 8 more drawers to go, so wish me luck.

  • Colouring- This may sound childish to some, but for me colouring books are therapeutic and relaxing. I used to do it all the time until University and I'd like to get back in to it. It's just so satisfying colouring in the lines with bold and beautiful colours.

  • Go On Days Out- It's hard to have a social life when you're busy working. I'd like to fit a few days out with people on really nice days in my break. So far I've spent a day out by a river with my niece and a day going to Airhop with friends. Hopefully I will keep this up!

  • Pass My Driving Test- I've been driving on and off for 3 years now and I am determined to pass my test by September. Fingers crossed!

  • Get My First Tattoo- I planned to get my first tattoo as soon as I hit 18 but I kept putting it off. Now I've finally bit the bullet and had a consultation last week. My tattoo is booked in for the end of August. I'm super nervous but also excited!

What are your summer goals?
