    So, as I've just finished GCSEs, I want this Summer to be productive whilst also giving me a break I'd like to make some progress in my future aspirations, make some new memories and maintain a strong positive attitude.

    Here's a few ideas that I want to make happen this summer:

    KEY- Not done yet=:stomp:

    In progress=:innocent:

    Completed=:jive:


    -Make some money , for college and my holiday to Hong Kong in November=:innocent:
    -Have something of mine appreciated/recognised, for example having some of my photography displayed=:jive:
    Update #1- http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...24&postcount=7
    -get at least 10 photos that I'm proud to have taken=:stomp:
    -volunteer for St Wilfrid's, in order to help those who need it and give me valuable work experience for medical school=:innocent:
    Update #1- http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...50&postcount=4
    Update #2- http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...6&postcount=15
    -watch the sunset with someone =:stomp:
    -have ice cream for dinner, whilst watching a good film on Netflix=:stomp:
    -enter some photos into the local exhibition=:innocent:
    -push myself to try something new=:stomp:
    -run 10 miles=:innocent:
    -sort out my Spotify premium subscription which isn't working = :jive:yay!
    -walk away from results day (even though I can't change anything now haha) feeling happy and mentally prepared for college=:innocent:
    -finish "1Q84" by Haruki Murakami, one of my favourite authors=:innocent: (still reading this, however I finished "before I go to sleep" which I highly recommend!)
    -do my college summer tasks (gotta be done )=:innocent:
    -start practising the piano again, and a little guitar. Perhaps try to learn some of Chopin's Raindrop Prelude on piano??=:innocent:
    -meet up with friends, have a good time=:innocent:
    -get some nice clothes, for summer & college=:innocent:


    I'll probably add more ideas/aims as I think of them. Any questions or comments are very welcome!! I'll also try and update this post with each bullet point, adding photos and writing about what happened (although maybe I'll make separate posts, depends on how long this turns out). This looks like it could be a Summer to remember!!

    I've never been to Hong Kong before, but I'm really looking forward to it, there seems so much to do and see!! 10 days in Hong Kong

    Haha, running 10 miles will be a push, the most I've run is 7 miles in around 1hr 10mins.. But thank you!

    Well, it's not as if I normally have ice cream.....

    Even just the photo opportunities of the harbour and the peak are enough to go!

    I used to only run 1-2 miles but one day I decided it wasn't enough and ran another 3 miles; nowadays I never run less than 7

    One step closer to achieving this aim now

    Tysm! It was a lot of work, but once I knew what I was doing I found it fairly easy. I heard the music exams were fairly easy, and there was a mistake??

    UPDATE

    So, on the hottest day of the year so far, I've just come back from my group interview! We did some discussions, get-to-know-you games and some presentations on more specific ideas and issues surrounding the hospice.

    I found it to be a really enjoyable experience, meeting many nice people all of completely different age groups and backgrounds. I also felt as though I made a positive impact in the way which I came across, leaving with a good first impression

    So what happens now??
    Well, I've been invited back to a second interview/meeting, this time a one-to-one session with the administrator. This will be in about a week's time! Afterwards, all being well, they have suggested speeding up my application process as I'm still in education, so it'd be beneficial for both me and the hospice to start soon incase my time table for college clashes. After the next meeting and all the checks are done, my training will begin, along with my shadowing of whichever role I take. I'm hoping to take the role of a "host"- this will include interacting with patients, the public, as well as working in all different sectors of the hospice at various times, which will hopefully provide a very interesting and fulfilling experience!!

    So overall, I feel today has been productive and worthwhile! Now to relax before my 6:30 am start tomorrow when I'll be working, hopefully making some more money for Hong Kong and for college!!
