The past at least two summer’s I have been doing this thing called a summer blink list. Basically, it is a summer bucket list (last year’s here). It’s called a ‘blink list’, because summer goes by so fast and so this list is things I want to accomplish before the ‘blink’ is over. Some of the things on my list I came up with and others I found on Pinterest (mine is here).
Keep reading to find out what is on my list!
- This is always on my bucket list. Every. Single. Time. Watch a sunrise.
I have done it twice and I just get an exhilarated feeling watching the sun rise so I want to do it again!
2. Witness the total solar eclipse on August 21st.
There is supposed to be a total solar eclipse this summer. I think that would be a really unique thing to experience, so I want to make sure I do that.
3. Leave a note in a Library book.
I think this would be really fun to do. And what better time to do it then summer?
4. This is so random…. but I really want to try fried Oreos.
I know I’m probably going to the beach a few times this summer so I will have an opportunity. I have no particular reason for doing this. They just seem interesting.
5. Finish an entire coloring book.
I love coloring and will hopefully be able to complete this wild goal!
6. Sew, Sew, Sew!
I love sewing and want to do more of it this summer. I have all the supplies and projects I want. I need to just start.
7. Have a shopping day.
The mall is one of my favorite places (I sound way too much like a teenage girl…. but it is true). It would be so fun to spend a whole day there with my friends. Since there is more time in the summer that is a perfect excuse.
8. Take more pictures.
I’m going to Florida this summer and also on a missions trip and I want to take a ton of pictures while I am on these trips. Plus, hopefully I will have more time to photograph my friends so I can build a portfolio and improve my skills.
9. Bible Journal more!
I love Bible journaling, but I don’t do it as much as I would like. Because I want to make sure I do it more, I’ve made it one of the things on my blink list so I am reminded to do it.
10. Enjoy the break!
I want some time to just kick my feet up, do a face mask, and swim at the pool. My summer is packed already. I’m looking for a few days to just relax.
What is one thing you want to do this summer? Let me know in the comments.
Have a beautiful day!

Ooh, this is a GREAT list, Rebekah! I want to do several of those things too! I think it would be especially neat to see the solar eclipse. 😀 Hmm… one thing I want to do this summer is work on my art more and maybe open an Etsy shop for it. 🙂
I hope you complete all the things on your blink list, Rebekah! 😀
Thank you! I think it would be so cool if you opened an etsy shop for your art work. Your artwork is stunning.
Aww thanks so much! I really hope I can!
Fun! In April at a retreat I went to we went on a really exhausting hike at 5:00 AM (and I fell asleep at 12:00 AM) to see a sunrise. The sunrise was absolutely gorgeous over the mountains!
Ever since I learned about solar eclipses in 3rd grade I’ve wanted to see one. Hopefully we can see one this year!
Also, leaving a note in a library book sounds fun. I think I might have done it before, but I can’t quite remember.
And finally, fried Oreos kind of make you feel grease over-loaded, but they are pretty tasty. 🙂 We had some at our fair last year.
I would have been so tired after that hike. I completed that already this summer while I was on vacation — I got up twice to see the sunrise and I was pretty tired for the rest of the day.
My mom has told me about the solar eclipse she saw as a kid and I’ve always thought it would be cool to see one!
Thanks for the heads up about fried oreos.
Yeah, it was a pretty exhausting day. 😛
Yes! I think they’d be amazing to see.
Love your list! I would like to do more Bible journaling too.
