So I'm kind of a list freak...

:) there. I admitted it. I make lists for everything. Wish lists, to-do lists, shopping lists, cleaning lists, birthday lists, favorites list, song lists, lists of goals, pro and con lists... yeah I've got it bad!! Most of these lists end up sitting in a notebook in my room, on a scrape piece of paper in my purse or abandoned on the coffee table. I don't know why I write things down only to never read them again, but I think they really do help me to think things through and keep things everything focus and properly prioritized! Or just to get things out. :) I know I just said I usually forget about my lists, but I have one list in particular that I really want to check things off of... my Summer To-Do list. Essentially it's a collection of things I really need to get done, things I want to do, and ways to spend my time this Summer. If I don't check them all off by the end of Summer, it's ok. But I'd love to see how many I can do!! :) I am going to post my list below with some expanded explanations for each thing, and post a condensed version on the sidebar of my blog. I'll bold things as I accomplish them and at the end of the Summer I'll tally it up and see how much I was able to do! :) My list is going to start right now and will run until the end of September. I know that's a little long, but for me Summer usually lasts until October!! :) Well I think that is enough rambling from me for now... no need to keep going! Here is my list. Wish me luck! ^_^

ps. I might update my list from time to time as I think of more things to do!
