Hello // Summer goals.


I've been struggling to write this post for a while. As you may be aware my laptop broke way back in October, & I haven't posted anything since. I never intended to go so long without posting. I can give a few good excuses for not posting, but what good would that do? Since I didn't want to just say 'Hi' & disappear again I decided I'd share a few of my summer goals since its gorgeous outside.

1. Take more pictures. I used to have at least 2 cameras on me at any given time, but over the last year I stopped carrying them around as much. As easy as it is the pull out my phone to snap a picture, using my Canon or Minolta feels much more special. Side goal, save up for a new lens to replace my broken kit lens for my Canon.

2. Climb a mountain. This is one of my three new year resolution. Which will happen in mid July. My sister, niece, mum & I are spending five days in Banff just so I can climb a mountain. My sister is pretty savvy with a camera so between the pair of us, there will be tons of amazing pictures.


3. Learn how to code. So I want to be a Graphic Designer. This is something I've been working on for years, but I don't know how to code for the life of me. I know plenty of cheats to get around coding, but I figured its about time I take the plunge & learn. So I signed up to codecademy & bought an idiots guide to coding book.

4. Do something out of my comfort zone. Braydon got a new job 'up north' & it means I'll have a lot of free time to myself. I'm hoping to push myself into doing things I wouldn't normally do. Who knows maybe I'll make some new friends out of it.

5. Travel. I would love to leave the country this summer, but I don't see that happening. I am however going to Squamish Music festival in August. So that will be interesting.

6. Fix my car. I need new rear breaks, tires, an alternator, a break light, a daytime light, the rear bummer repaired, & possibility shocks. & that's not everything, that's just what's on my priority list. I'm hoping to get new tires this month & after that I'll more on to the breaks & then the alternator. The rest will get fixed slowly as I can afford it.


7. Start running. I went on a walk with my mum in Chickacoo earlier this week & could barely get up the first hill. I wouldn't be bother with this usually, but like I mentioned a few points back, I'm going to be climbing a mountain on July. So I'm taking inspiration from my ex co-worker Kris & am going to attempt to start running. Also; you should check out her blog, it will make you feel lazy with how active she is.

8. Grow a herb garden. Every year I always plant herbs, but I am usually too busy to do the up keep & they die before the end of July. This year will be different, I hope.

9. Get my hair cut. My hair is damaged beyond damaged. Firstly, because I haven't had my hair cut professionally in two years. Secondly, because of lightening my hair last summer with bleach. & thirdly, I may have accidentally caught my hair on fire last a few months ago. I really need a hair cut.

10. Wear more dresses. More fun is had when your not wearing pants.

Do you have any summer goals?

With love;
Shelby
