(25) Days of Summer Explanation

For awhile now I've been contemplating what I was going to do this summer. My first year of college I felt like I grew up so much (not necessarily a bad thing) and fell into a routine of work and school so quickly. With this in mind, I decided that I wanted to do something a little different this summer than just continue on in a day-to-day routine. That is why I have created this blog. I thought up the idea a few weeks ago randomly and for some reason I haven't been able to get it out of my head. I decided to make a list of 25 things I wanted to get done this summer that would be fun, exciting, and spontaneous. My blog is a combination of (500) Days of Summer (hence the name), The Buried Life (except alone, in Greenville, and more PG-rated-ish? aka no playboy parties), and The Bucket List (without the whole dying part).

Some items on the list are going to be very easy to accomplish while others are going to take some planning and research. Who knows if I will get all of them done or not, and in reality that is not the point. The point of all of this is to set a map for this summer to memorable and exciting. I am going to do my best on getting every task done as best as I can. The blog is going to be updated anytime I have either crossed off one of the items or have made progress towards crossing one off. It is not, however, going to be used just to blabber on about my life.

Tuesday, May 4 2010 is my first day of summer and that is when this blog will officially begin. Hopefully, I will be able to start soon after and begin knocking things out. When able, I will take pictures of me accomplishing tasks, but if not you will just have to take my word for it.

I'm excited to start and hope I can stay motivated! Feel free to leave comments with any suggestions in regards to the tasks, or for encouragement!

Thanks guys!
