Summer To Do List


Summer. Without a shadow of a doubt, the season is in full swing. Besides the heat, what isn't there to love about this wonderful season? The BBQ's, the longer days, the carefree outfits and laid back atmosphere, it's all just wonderful. With the exception of vacations, I typically don't like to do too much planning as I feel that summer is a time to embrace spontaneity. However, there are a few things that I hope to do:
  • Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge (on a not too hot day of course)
  • Visit (for the first time) The Guggenheim
  • Explore NY in general. One thing going to school in Brooklyn Heights taught me is that there is so much of NYC that I still need to explore. 
  • Be a tourist for a day. Statue of Liberty and all. 
  • Make the most of summer produce from the Farmer's Markets.
  • Improve on my photography. (I haven't picked up my camera in weeks...)
  • Visit New England and DC.
  • Revisit and (try to) perfect macarons (see here for my failed first attempt.)
  • Finish redecorating my room (finally put pictures up, making progress).
  • Make a grilled pizza. 
  • Pick back up learning Italian.
  • Catch up on some reading.
  • Embrace the season in its entirety
Speaking of reading, thank you for all of your responses via comments and Twitter per my last post on e-readers. After spending about a month weighing the pros and cons, I decided to go ahead and purchase the Kindle Touch. I started to regret it after I opened the box, but after downloading a book last night, I can say I truly love it. As someone mentioned to me "reading is reading" (thanks Hannah).

So tell me, what are your plans for summer? Reading anything good?
