    :party:MY SUMMER BUCKET LIST 2016




    Hello! Welcome to my Summer Bucket List 2016! I have a range of things I'd like to do, some being as simple as stroking a dog to some being as exhilarating as going paragliding. I hope you enjoy my thread! :woo:

    (UNDERLINED MEANS I'VE COMPLETED IT)
    (ITALICS MEANS I'M CURRENTLY DOING IT)

    Finish Season 4 of Orange is the New Black :borat:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    This was the first thing I did once summer started and I technically haven't finished watching it yet so it's on my list :youbetcha:

    Completed on Day 4 - 17.07.16
    Learn the Russian alphabet
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Not the whole language, just the Cyrillic script, simply as I'm going to Russia next year and I'd like just a little background knowledge on the language :russia:
    Go paragliding
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I'm going to Turkey this year and I will have the oppurtunity to go paragliding. It's something I know I'd regret not doing if I backed out! :crossedf:
    Eat a 20 Chicken McNuggets meal all to myself
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I like the little things in life ok
    Read 4 books
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I have 4 books I want to read this summer. They are:

    Rock Wars - Robert Muchamore :borat:
    Fatherland - Robert Harris :borat:
    The Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown
    Dead Line - Stella Rimington

    (Happy Borat = Completed the book :borat:)
    Prepare for a festival
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Hopefully I am going to one during the 26th-28th August (I know the competition will be over by then but I will need to prepare; buy the tickets, the tent, etc) :cyber:
    Swim in the sea
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Technically I've done this already but I would like to again, when I go to Turkey. :titan:
    Stroke a dog :borat:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I. LOVE. DOGS. :eek3::eek4:

    Completed on Day 3 (16.07.16)

    Pull an all nighter
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Nothing better than getting my sleep pattern messed up :bird: :sleep:
    Use a jacuzzi
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Getting them summer vibes :party2:
    Start watching Game of Thrones
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I would start reading them first but I think with my 7 books to complete I'll run out of time Instead I'll start watching the TV Series :sorry:
    Learn French and Spanish vocabulary for A Level
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I'd like to kickstart my A Levels by doing some mild revision of vocabulary in both languages, which are the two I am taking on next year :france::deal:
    Spend a few days on a barge
    Spoiler:
    Show
    If all goes smoothly this will happen rather soon
    Do some saxophone practice at least every 3 days
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I will be doing my Grade 4 in winter so I would like the best mark possible for my capability :yep:

    I'll also start this once I actually collect my saxophone from school :musicus:
    Go to a waterpark
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I love waterparks so much, so going to one is definitely on my bucket list :scuba:
    Watch a documentary
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I have to have a few academic things on here, right? :pirate3:
    Download and play Pokemon Go every day for a week :borat:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I say a week because I usually get bored of apps like this after a few days, so doing it every day for a week could prove to be quite difficult :sadnod:

    Completed on Day 7 (20.07.16) :pika:
    Visit a museum
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Another academic thing lol :rip:
    Upgrade my iCloud Storage
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I've been meaning to do this for about 6 months now and still haven't got around to doing it
    Come with me as I progress through this summer and attempt to do as many things on this list as possible! :rofl3:

    Day 1 - 14.07.16

    Yesterday I did some French and Spanish revision on Memrise, and also learnt the letters А, Б, В, Г, Д, Ё, Ж, З, К, М and Н in the Russian alphabet, also on Memrise.

    My end goal for French and Spanish is to learn 1800 words for Spanish and 500 for French. My current number for Spanish is 1227 and for French 38 (only started recently). I will screenshot my progress every once in a while.

    Haha I didn't go on it for like 2 weeks and I had to review like 500 words which is why my score went up quite a lot unfortunately I don't know any particular course for german which might be good but like a gcse one might be good for revising vocabulary? There might be a german course specifically for holidays possibly

    Day 2 - 15.07.16

    Late again oops lol

    Yesterday I watched some more OITNB and now I'm up to episode 10, things are getting tenseeeeeee only three episodes left then that's one ticked off!!

    I also caught my second Pokemon, a Rattata! I thought that walking past PokeStops gave you the rewards so I tried to walk past as many as possible on my way home from town but it turns out you have to spin the picture to get the pokeballs :pika:

    I also heard the news about Turkey - what is happening over there is not nice in the slightest and also might risk me going there in two weeks, preventing me from doing some of the bucket list ideas I'd rather be safe going somewhere else than risking going there, unless everything gets better by August the 1st I really hope it all improves over there, Turkish people are some of the most hospitable and kind people on the planet and they really do not deserve this unrest.

    As mentioned before, I played a lot more Pokemon Go and I actually get the hang of the game now! I've caught a lot of Pokemon and apparently I've walked about 2km, but I think I've done more as when I got my first egg I was about mid way through my trip around my city Here is a picture of my collection so far (so many Rattatas omg)
