Hello lovelies,

This morning I had my Higher English exam and now I have 2 weeks until Higher Art and then I AM FINISHED SCHOOL FOR EVER and ITS SUMMER. Summer makes me happy. I’m pretty much classing now as the start of my summer holidays because, if I do say so myself, I’m pretty good at Art so I’m not too worried about it if I’m honest. I’ll just do what I always do, spend a few days memorising two essays and I’ll be good to go. So now, because I’m so glad that summer is coming, I am going to list some things that I love in Summer.

1. Sunsets. Or more specifically, walking up a hill on a beautiful evening when the sky is clear, taking lots of pretty pictures and then long boarding back down and home. SO. MUCH. FUN.

2. Going to public gardens, having a picnic and taking lots and lots of pretty pictures.


3. BBQ’s and camping on the beach.

(Cannon Beach, Oregon) A family relaxes in front of Haystack Rock, the largest (72m) sea stack on the US coast.  This was the first day of fair weather in weeks on the coast, and the shoeline was dotted with small fires from groups enjoying the sunset. As usual with the people I seem to meet here, they all had relatives in Norway. Or at least these thought they did; as their name started with Mac... I said, sure, you might be Norwegian and took them up on their offer of a shoreside drink or five, to prove my ethnic heritage. I thus missed missed a very nice, partly cloudy post-rain photo op of some large rocks. Oh, well. At last the little girls thought I looked like Johnny Depp. As the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland. I need a haircut.

4. Actually being able to read that stack of books that I have accumulated over the year.


5. Road-tripping to my favorite cities and discovering little cute cafe’s of the way. Bliss.



What I really want to do more this Summer:

Climb mountains.
