Time for a quick progress report! I should have done this every end of a quarter of my 4-month vacation.
1. Major Internship (Community)
I cancelled this one. Honestly, I felt scared and incompetent to push this one. I need to finish at least all my 3rd year subjects first before I can comfortably go with this plan. Let’s see if I’m brave enough to do it next summer:)
2. Driving lessons.
None yet. I’m not totally disregarding this yet, though.
3. Learn more cooking recipes
I just collected some easy recipes that is all. I wish we stayed in Laguna so I can move around freely at our kitchen T.T
4. Read the books on my ever- growing reading list
Finally, I got tons of time for leisure reading! It’s fun taking things slowly:)
5. Hang out with friends and family more
Singapore with family, MOA with Angela, Nuvali with Karmel, Gea and Rodessa, Robinson’s Magnolia with Tobi, Nelly and Alou, Vietnam with Joyce, Lola Phuong and other relatives and family friends… more to come hopefully.
I learned so much things frome these hang-outs and trips. I have to write a separate posts for these insights. I hope I won’t forget or become to lazy to do so.
6. Catch up on some series
My sister and I are watching the last 3 seasons of One Tree Hill. The series is so long but definitely worth watching. We’re in the middle of the Big Bang Theory and Awkward, too. Next: I shall watch the last season of Gilmore Girls (I’ve been putting this off for too long) and Sherlock (I actually want to watch it again from the start before starting S3 but I don’t think I’ll be able to do that). I’ll start Game of Thrones, too, as recommended by friends (by the whole world, too hahaha)
7. Save my deteriorating art skills!:)
If you count those doodles in my planner then I might really be saving my art skills at this point:)))))
8. Try yoga/ pilates
Yes. We TRIED. For the first 3 days, we were so absorbed with it and after that I just stopped. Then, I just did it again when I felt like doing it. Where the hell is discipline :)))))
9. Find a decent summer job
Not having the community internship, I decided to work from 9:00 to 5:30 from modays to fridays for my tito’s office again instead of finding another one. I spent the weekdays of my April and May helping his bookkeeper and the manager. I made 7,000 pesos (almost). Not bad.
Things may not have been how I expected them to be but I am so happy to know that I still became productive after all! I still have 1 month left to go and hopefully, I can accomplish more.
PS. I’ve got to add doing more chores even if we already have a helper in the house. She’s one lazy helper T.T
Today’s my second day of being an official stay-in gal! If I were to spend the rest of my summer just being at home with this kind of weather, I think I’d rather stay at the office again because at least, there’s an all-day and all- afternoon switched on aircon:)) But then, watching series and reading books are really fun things to do, too… I thought of documenting my summer 2014 but I’m just too lazy to log in here to do so. Also, mom lost the memory card of our camera so that really sucks!:(
Let’s go Tine!!! I’m so excited to read more novels and do colored pencil drawings over the break!
