Hello, people of MCMB. :D I had a little idea to start off the summer. Considering I'm not one to set goals or get myself motivated, I thought this might be kind of fun. Just remember to follow the MCMB rules, obviously.

So what are you planning to do this summer? Anything specific you're wanting to do? Random things that sound fun? Share them here! You can make a personal "bucket list" of things you want to do, set some goals, and feel accomplished when you get them done.

I'll start with a few here. Feel free to share your own ideas, too. :)

Artemis's Summer Bucket List:

-Finish writing novel
-Run at least 50 miles
-Eat healthier
-Finish reading Justin Cronin's "The Passage"


Your turn! :D

xoxoArtemis

Write a poem
Write a song
Write a play
Start my novel
Paint my fingernails with bright sparkly polish
Watch the sunrise
Watch the sunset
Make my own popsicles
Watch last year’s hot summer flick

Sleep until noon – once
