There weren't any big plans this year. No vacations; No big events. My first summer with a job. But it was still a fun and one of the best in years. Since growing up, summer hasn't been my favorite part of the year. I really enjoyed this one, though.
Some of the highlights:
-Went to the beach.
-Got sunburned really bad on my back and legs. Going to work the two days afterword were incredibly painful.
-Saw two movies in theater; Maleficent and Guardians of the Galaxy.
-Went to Snoqualmie Falls with Morg and her family. Then we hiked to Denny Creek and played in the glacier water. Then we went to Triple X Root Beer and played Concentration till our hands were red and stinging.
-Took lots of photos.
-Bought a Kindle.
-Worked a lot. Had a few eight day weeks, which are not fun at all. At least I have fun co-workers and bosses that make bearable.
-Had a lot of Monk, Doctor Who, and Criminal Minds marathons.
-Learned how to knit. And got addicted soon afterwards.
-Bought VSCO 01 for Lightroom. Best presets ever.
-Stayed home alone for several days.
-Had firepits in the backyard. Some with family and some with friends.
-Had a Doctor Who Tea Party
-Went on lots of shopping trips and bought way too much stuff.
-Became penpals with my friend Rose.
-Went to the film premier for a local film that my mom, sister, and I were extras in. Then got to visit with friends in the area who we don't get to see very often. All of our running around and dancing made me crazy sweaty, especially in the heat. It was so worth it though.
-Decided to start saving for a Canon 6D.
-Ate too much chocolate coconut ice cream from Trader Joe's.
-Saw several $1 family movies at Regal Cinemas.
