Don't get me wrong, I love school more than the average person, but I mentally checked out several weeks ago. Although I'm finishing the semester in great shape (although I wish I worked a bit harder at not being sick/getting more attendence points so I could receive an A- in Portuguese,), it's a drag to study for a semester with which you mildly got frustrated: you have to pay your dues in order to get access to the upper-level classes, but I feel I did that long ago. I'm ready for new projects and new ways of doing schoolwork. So to keep me motivated, I keep my eyes on the prize.
Although I'll be doing some paid research during the summer and studying for the GRE (and am very much looking forward to the change and spirit of independent work), I have other things on my buckletlist that I want to achieve.
♡ New sets of clothes: I've kind of been distraught that some of my clothes, due to association with a past time, my weight gain, or my acknowledgement of what works for my body, don't really work for me anymore. I really dislike jeans because they're never made for girls like me (big ass, tiny waist), so I'm going to check out waist-length cigarette pants (and they'll encourage me to find some dapper shoes to add, too). My other goal is to look out for pretty dresses and skirts. And non-metal bras and eyeliner.♡ My apartment: I get my apartment to myself for the summer since both of my roommates will be out by June 1st. This allows me to reconfigure areas and make everything spotless (I am a clean freak due a nine-month horrible roach infestation and my condo association refusing to tell me it was wide-spread + roommates always have a different idea of what clean is). Maybe I can get some nice frames or invest in some Warhol Jackie Kennedy and Liz Taylor prints.♡ My boyfriend: Self-explanatory ♡♡♡ We might even be planning a roadtrip to Chicago for August.♡ Portuguese: Hardcore studying this summer. I need to get it up to a level where I can have enough vocab to speak without going into English again. I'd like to be more ready than my other classmates for the fall and when I get to Brazil next January.♡ PHASE OUT AND PURGE PROCESSED FOODS: Save money, earn health.♡ Save money: Work more to save more since I won't have additional income due to roommates ;__;♡ Listen to YMO: ♡♡♡♡ Ignore my phone when I wake up and go to bed: I don't need to be aware of everyone's lives when I start my day.♡ Zine-making: After finals week, I'm going to collaborate with Kailey and we're going to make a zine together. I'm not sure what it'll look like exactly, or what I will write about, but it will probably be a mix-match of lighthearted and not so lighthearted things on my end.
What's on your buckletlist?
