some goals for after uni finishes

This lockdown season has been weird for me because on top of everything that's going on, I was supposed to be finishing up my final semester of my degree. Looking back on the past four years this was definitely not how envisaged spending my final few weeks of uni but I'm so so grateful for my uni experience and for all the friends I made and things I learnt along the way. Since the last few weeks have been spent solidly cooped up doing uni work, this is not your usual list of goals. Nope this is just things I've been dying to do but have been putting off due to fear of getting too distracted and not getting my uni work done. Basically, this is just a list of things I want to do in my free time.


1. Binge the HECK outta Disney+

My self-control has been massively tested since Disney+ was released and I'm miraculously yet to sign up but the first thing I'm going to do the second that I finish my final exam. I already have a list of everything I need to watch starting with High School Musical The Musical: The Series because the first time I heard Wondering I SOBBED and then my new found love of Tom Holland means I think I finally have to actually watch his Spiderman movies. If you've got Disney+ let me know what else I should watch because I need ALL the recommendations.

2. Learn DaVinci

I've been doing a lot of video filming and editing recently for my Dad for his church and I feel like I've exhausted all of the features of iMovie and I just want to learn how to use a new software to edit and see if I can improve my editing game and DaVinci seems to be a great alternative that I've seen so many people talk about. On a similar note I also want to try and post more on youtube!

3. Get Through my TBR

I love reading and getting stuck into a really good book and it's something that I definitely haven't done enough of lately so I'm determined to make a big dent in my to-read pile this summer.

4. Catch up on Netflix Series

I'm probably best known in all of my friendship groups as the go-to person for Netflix recommendations but since Money Heist 4 came out I literally haven't watched a thing (I haven't even seen Tiger King yet) and there are so many things I need to catch up on so that's definitely a priority.

5. Bake some bread

I know everyone is baking bread right now but I've literally been planning on making bread since last summer and I still haven't done it so this summer it is DEFINITELY going to happen!

6. Blog more

It's no secret that my blog kind of took a back seat this year while I was focussing so much on uni but it's kind of making a revival and I'm determined to keep it up as we go forward so stay tuned for better and more frequent posts in the future!

Eventually, I'll actually get round to setting proper goals for after uni but right now the only thing on my mind is RELAXATION so that is my main priority. What things have you been enjoying doing in lockdown or what are you looking forward to picking up?
