Summer is coming up. I only have about three weeks of school left and then three months of free time before starting all over again in college. So, I’ve been thinking lately, what exactly am I going to do with this free time?
First of all, I want to focus on doing my own artwork. School often makes it feel like I have to keep pumping out different work constantly. It can really become draining at some points. Usually, I feel very restricted in what I can or cannot create. So, over the summer, I’m going to create whatever I want.
Without the stress of school, I will have plenty of time to try new things. So I’m going to try some new things, specifically things that have to do with crafting by hand. I’ve always liked sewing, but I want to practice more with it. I really want to create items like stuffed animals and blankets. I want to make quilts, which is such a grandma activity to do, but I think it’s so charming. I also want to crochet, but I don’t think I’ll have the patience to learn how.
Above anything else, I want to have fun with my hometown friends. I’m leaving to go out of state for college and I know that I probably won’t be able to see them again for a while, so I’m going to spend as much time with them as I can. Right now, we’re planning to have a senior trip together. What exactly we’re going to do is still being planned, but either way, we’re going to have fun. Me and my mom are also planning a little kayaking trip. We haven’t been kayaking together since last summer and it’s finally warm enough to go again.
