Summer Goals Recap (How did I do??)

This summer I had a lot of goals.

I went into summer with a head full of ideas and expectations. If you saw my Summer Bucket List post, you saw I had a long list of goals, and I had even more unlisted on that post!

So let’s take a look and see I did on those goals, shall we?

Read 10 Books

In total I think I read about 7 books between June and July. I had a list of books I wanted to read, but as usual I veered off and my ever-growing TBR lured me in. From the list of books I had originally, here is how I did:

  • Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
  • Cinder by Marissa Meyer
  • Flashback by Shannon Messenger
  • The War Within by Cecelia Schmidt
  • A Night Divided by Jennifer A. Nielsen
  • Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
  • The War’s End by Cecelia Schmidt
  • 1984 by George Orwell
  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  • The Cursed Child by J.K Rowling

I’m disappointed I didn’t at least read 1984, The Cursed Child, and Mockingjay, but I definitely will be completing those this fall. I’m almost positive 1984 and The Book Thief is on my school literature list this year.

Here are some of the extra books I read:

  • The Battle of the Labryrinth by Rick Riordan
  • The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan
  • Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer

Go to a Drive-in

Check this off my list. Also go check out my mini storytime >HERE< to find out how it went.

Host a cookout

My family started hosting Sunday dinners twice a month and the past few times we’ve had cookouts. It’s been a great way to connect with my cousins whom I don’t see very often! 🙂

Go berry picking

Unfortunately my family didn’t do that this year, which is the first time in a long time. We were planning on going one day, but decided it was too hot and went to the pool. XD

Pull an all-nighter

HAHA BIG NOPE. I’m trying to prep myself to get up early during the school year (my goal is to get up at 5:30) so I need all the rest I can get!

  • See an air show ✘
  • Go to Cedar Point ✘
  • Stargaze ✔
  • Gain right leg splits and needle ✘
  • Catch fireflies ✔
  • Go hiking ✘
  • Finish planning my novel plot ✘
  • Write a fairytale retelling ✘
  • Go camping ✘
  • Learn new friendship bracelet patterns ✔
  • Get a job ✔
  • Participate in a summer blog contest ✔

Overall I didn’t complete as many goals as I would have liked, but it’s summertime so I’m okay with it.

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this post!

Until next time!

What goals did you accomplish this summer?
