Apologies

Standard

SO. To start this off I’m going to confess something… I haven’t even written out my bucket list. Yes, I’m a full time procrastinator. I decided though that today, instead of sitting outside getting burnt YET AGAIN, or watching way too many episodes of Skins or 21 Jump Street for the 1700000th time I’m going to dedicate my time to writing it. Now, there are no guarantees that it will be finished by tonight, or tomorrow, or friday for that matter but it WILL be done. On a slightly different note, my best friend Meghan is coming over tomorrow to celebrate my first official week of summer (I finished my english exam yesterday, which was my only exam btw, but technically last Tuesday was my last day..)! I might get her to help me with the list and all because she has some pretty epic ideas! I’m most likely about to write yet another post because I have an epic summer story to tell 😀 

Peace in Pieces!
