School is officially over for the summer.

And it’s very surreal.

This year flew by, I can’t believe it’s June already. So it hasn’t completely sunk in that summer has arrived, and I haven’t been doing my usual summer project planning for months leading up to it. I’ve been thinking about it a lot today, and here is my Summer 2011 To Do List. There may be things I add as we go, but this is what my goals are right now.

  • Read 11 books. Not picture books, actual books with chapters. That’s roughly one for each week of my summer break.
  • Go back to yoga once a week.
  • Finally get around to painting the downstairs bathroom.
  • Clean out some closets.
  • Get back on the treadmill every day.
  • See at least 1 movie per week. I started already, I saw Green Lantern today. It was awful, as expected, but a nice start to vacation.
  • Go to Hawaii.
  • Go to LeakyCon with my brother.
  • Go to PAX Prime with Adam.
  • Work with an architect on plans to convert the attic into a studio for me.
  • Make breakfast.
  • Get a headstart on my homemade Christmas gifts.
  • Learn to make homemade pasta.
  • Have at least 2 cookouts.
  • Explore 2 new beaches.

I think that’s an excellent list so far.
