my *realistic* summer bucket list

It’s summer at last *sigh*. The last few weeks of school were such a drag but now I AM FREE :)) Even though summer has technically started, I (Ivy) haven’t had a lot of time to think about what I want to do. Summer is a whole two-ish months and I can’t waste all of it away being unmotivated, which I am very good at. So I always see summer bucket list ideas when I’m scrolling through Pinterest- sure, some of them are very corny (“make memories with my best friend!”) and some of them are pretty cool but very unrealistic for me (“ride an elephant in Thailand!”) but hey, there’s some that would actually be really fun AND realistic. Some of this stuff is just for fun, some of it is for adventure’s sake, a few being able to say I did (to be totally honest😂) and some are personal goals- things I’ve wanted to do but have never gotten around to doing. Without further ado, here’s a few things that I want to do this summer (ooh I rhymed!😂):

Try bubble tea.

There’s this bubble tea place by the safeway we always go to and every time we pass by, we’re like “oh, I wonder what bubble tea is like. We should try it sometime. But we NEVER DO gaaah

Have a backyard camp out.

Go backpacking.

I’ve read books like Wild and a Walk in the Woods and I would love to experience backpacking firsthand. But *clarification* NOT for months. Just for a few days. It would be such a cool adventure.

Tie-dye something.

I’ve wanted to do this for a long time. . .maybe this summer I’ll actually do it? 😄

So far, this summer is lovely. It is everything I’ve hoped it would be. And it’s only been like two weeks. The best part is I still have two full months ahead of me.

This is just what I want to do this summer. What about YOU??


Comment below!! Hope you all have AMAZING summers!!! We will keep you posted! (haha, literally, get it? I am really really sorry about that, I couldn’t help myself😂)

Love always,

  1. Amazing inspiring list!! I really love the idea of leaving s note in a book, and backyard camping, my family does that often during summer but I haven’t been involved much lately. Again, really nice list!

  2. Wow! This is AMAZING! I tried a sample of bubble tea. It’s more like squash and tastes so sweet. It had a little fruity bubble in it which popped in your mouth. I’d love to leave a note in a library book! Or camp out! Wishing you a fantastic summer, girls!
