I feel like it’s officially time to make my Summer 2016 bucket list. Also known as my “goals” for the summer. I always make a list and sometimes I complete everything and sometimes only a few things but either way it’s just fun to make a list. HA!! #TypeA #OCD
ONE. Go one place I have never been before. I covered a lot of places I had never been before last summer and even though I won’t be taking a big trip like that again any time soon I do have a couple weekend trips planned that should be pretty interesting!
TWO. Learn how to use my DSLR camera. I have actually made this a goal a few times before but this time I really mean it. I want to get more comfortable using it and start upping my photography game.
THREE. Hit 10,000 Twitter followers. I have been on a roll with Twitter lately and so I made it a personal goal to hit 10,000 followers before summer is over. I don’t know about you but sometimes I overwhelm myself trying to be good at everything at the same time when really I should stick to focusing on one thing at a time. I feel like for the past couple of years I have been trying to grow ALL of my social media channels and have somewhat succeeded but I recently took a step back and realized that if I concentrated on just one at a time I would have better success. So for the next couple of months I am going to focus on my Twitter following! If you aren’t already, please follow me and help a sister out!
FOUR. Do one thing that really scares me. As much s I try to put on a brave face I am actually scared of a lot of things….heights, public speaking, commitment, making bug life decisions, etc. I feel like I am at a point in life where I just really need to put myself out there are get over myself. Know what I mean??
FIVE. Get my Google Analytics Certification. This is something I have been looking into and wanting to do for a long time but you know, school. Ugh. So now that that’s finished I want to get my certification. I love numbers and am obsessed with analytics and am always wanting to learn more so I think this is perfect for me!
SIX. Get outside! When I am at work I am inside literally all day long. 12.5 hours is a long time to be stuck indoors so on my days off I want to get outdoors! I want to go to the pool, my local waterpark, take my Sophie girl on long walks at the park, and just sit on the back porch and chill. I also want to get some fun lights to string up outside to make it more cozy!
SEVEN. Eat a snow cone. I always have the best intentions of going out an grabbing a yummy snow cone but then I somehow always get sidetracked…I fully blame Target. And Starbucks. And McDonald’s Frappes. And the list goes on and on.
EIGHT. Go berry picking. There are tons of local farms around and I have not been to a single one and I have zero excuses. I have also never been to my local farmer’s market. I would use the excise that I have been working weekends for the past year but that only covers the past year. What about all the years before? At this point in my list making I am really questioning what exactly I have done with all of my free time. HAHAHA!
NINE. Learn how to use iMovie on my Mac. It’s on there so why not?? I hate wasting free things.
TEN. Go to Painting with a Twist. I have literally always wanted to go to one of these classes and have never been. Ugh. I really need to get out more.
So that’s my list of summer goals. I hope I complete most of them!!
What are your summer goals??
Do you love to make lists??
Annemarie LeBlanc says
Your goals are reasonable enough and easily attainable. Wishing you all the best in reaching these goals. I would also love to get 10K followers on Twitter.
I like your summer goals!! My goal is to improve myself as a blogger as well. So much to do so little time!!!
Stacie @ Divine Lifesytle says
Right now my summer goal is getting the AC fixed. We’ve been living without it all season. And we live in Georgia!
I love your list! I need to make a list for myself and my family for summer. We need to do more things over summer.
Angela K says

I love these goals!! I think I need to add eating a snowcone to my summer to do list.
I hope you make all your goals! I want to go berry picking this year too – I always have that on my list and never seem to do it!
Maggie branch says
Lists, lists, lists. Going to my happy place! These are all awesome summer goals. I think it’s great you have goals for your professional development as well as personal life. I can’t wait to read about your summer adventures.
These goals are doable. I like number 4. I also need to do something that really scares me.
Inspiring Kitchen says
I love your list and I think they are challenging, but doable. I need to work on my Twitter followers, too.
Nancy at Whispered Inspirations says
What a fun list! I should write my own, I would definitely want to go to one place I have never been to before. Good luck achieving them.
Rebecca Swenor says
Having summer goals is indeed a great idea. I love your list of goals for this summer. My goals are to work outside. go bike riding daily, and do yoga outside when possible. Thanks for sharing the idea.
You can totally do this, I have faith in you! These are really great goals, and I think you’re going to rock them hard.
My goals are to do fun things with my kids and get the house completely unpacked and put back together. I am so ready to be done with moving!
You have some amazing goals here! One of my goals is to get my pageviews up. Another one would be to work more on Pinterest. I know I need to work with it more and keep it looking nicer.
Melissa Dixon says
It’s great to have goals like these. I think I may make a list so I have something to strive for as well.
Loving the list!!!!!! Getting outside is definitely on my list as well. I sometimes forget there is a world outside lol…
Ann Bacciaglia says
I love the idea of doing something that scares you. I am trying to do adventures that push me a couple times a year. Such a great feeling when done.
The Cubicle Chick says
These items aren’t on my bucket list but I think our lists look about the same. I definitely need to work on that GA analytics. Thanks for the reminder. – Yolo
Travel Blogger says
As a photographer I can promise you, once you learn your DSLR you will be SO grateful and wonder why you didnt take the time to do it before.
Love your Summer goals! I didn’t know anything about the GA certification, i have to look it up
Ashleigh @Dash of Evans says
Love these goals! I’ve been slowly learning how to use my DSLR camera this year–it’s so easy to spend hours on YouTube learning about them! I want a snow cone–but a WINE one. Have you seen those? YUM!
I have actually not tried a wine snow cone but I need to get on that ASAP!!
Shaney Vijendranath (youbabyandi) says
Love your goals – I really want to work on my twitter too! 10 000 followers would be so awesome! :P
Love your goals Ricci! I really want to go berry picking too, but I think I might be pushing that goal. Also, I think I would love a snow cone each day with this hot weather in Georgia daily. ;)
Marielle Altenor says
Really awesome goals. My twitter goal is 10, 000 too! I’m close, so close! Much success on your summer goals!
