Yup, I'm a while behind as usual for the 2014 Blogger Challenge, but they do say that the snail always wins the race in the end... (excuses over, now lets begin)
There are so many things I wish to do this summer, from the extravagant to the downright simple. I feel as though a bucket list is something that is private and special to each individual, whereby the creator of the list spends time and effort thinking of all the magical things that suddenly seem realistic with the aim of completing them within a set period of time. As you can see above, my list is covered in dreams, scribbles and hope, three things which I think define my life right now. Here's a snippet of what's in my list, and why it needs to be achieved:
Read 5 books: It was part of my new years resolution to read at least 12 books this year, and to put it bluntly - I failed. I want to do this so badly as this gives my head and my flossy little brain time to think about other people's problems before my own because I am too self inflicting and too annoying about myself and I just want to escape into a fantasy world. A world of pure imagination, if you understand where I'm coming from.
Visit the Coronation Street set: This has been on my mental bucket list since it was announced back at the beginning of the year that there was going to be a tour, I just can't think of anything better. Walking down a film set? Check. Walking down the most famous cobbles in the world? Check. Having fun in Manchester? Yup this needs to happen, and it's nearly planned already.

Go bowling: I've been bowling a couple of times this year already and I've enjoyed myself every time. This was on my list, not because it's something I've never done before, but because I feel like you can't replicate good memories but you can build on them and that's what I plan to do. Who wants to spend time feeling busy doing nothing when in twenty years time these lazy days will mean exactly that to you. Nothing.

Feel comfortable in yourself: Yup, the word comfortable has pushed itself into yet another list of mine, but I would love to tone up, smile and feel good about myself. This doesn't have to mean losing weight, this means wanting to look in the mirror and smile, this means having a change in my insides rather than one on the outside. Even if my belly is pudgy, and my cheeks are full, as long as there's a smile on my face that isn't false is when I know that I've achieved this goal and that I'm truly happy.

What's on your summer bucket list?
