Awaiting Autumn

I just realised that I haven't been to a single summer wedding this year. This might sound weird, but I love weddings and I love summer so it only makes sense that I would be really into summer weddings. I guess I cannot force my friends to get married. Sadly. Anyhow, I was thinking how I have a few things that I do want to accomplish or just 'do' for the remainder of this year and I thought I should share them with you so that I will be more motivated to actually do these things (often my to-do lists [of which I have many] end up under the table and when I find them again, their time has passed). And because I once read in a "How To: To-Do Lists" that you should always include things you've already done, I will put my biggest, and already achieved goal for 2012 first.
[1] Get a job. Tick.
[2] Buy those Hunter wellies to withstand the English weather. Tick.
[3] Do more DIYs. Target: Once a week.
[4] Throw a combined birthday and house warming party; possibly 20s themed.
[5] Read more books in German (after 5 years of studying and reading Brit lit). Tick.
[6] Save some money for # 7. Tick
[7] Go Christmas shopping in a European capital. Tick.
[8] Bake a rainbow or ombre cake.
[9] Get into sports more and take up dancing again.
[10] Make home made Glühwein (mulled wine).

  2. I am the same way! I am definitely a list maker and often try to combine my lists into one notebook, but that never works. I guess I never really thought about writing down things I've already accomplished! Love that #8 is on your list! Speaking of weddings, I'm going to be in my first in October. Eep! A little freaked out.. ;]

    1. I read that if you include already accomplished things, it will motivate you more to start with the rest of the list. I'm super jealous you're invited to a wedding - I wanna go toooooo! ;)

  3. "I guess I cannot force my friends to get married"
    you're a riot.

    and I think making lists with achievements on them is brilliant. sometimes it's the only real reason for making a list, right? somebody's gotta gloat about it ;)

    1. I'm actually super ambitious but when it comes to actually doing stuff (for myself), I can get a bit lazy and forgetful so I NEED my lists :D
