Hello, everyone! Summer is so close I cannot believe it--I go to school tomorrow for a full day, then only a half day on Wednesday, then summer vacation is here! I can't wait to start reading all of the books on my list, swim in my backyard everyday, thrift like nobody's business, attend a Ditty Bops concert... This is going to be the summer of the century for me, kids. Here's a few of my personal Dear Diary Moments that I look forward to completing later this summer, amidst some amazingly inspirational Audrey Kitching videos...
**Summer** Dear Diary Moments;;
**Read some of my favorite books: Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol, The Weetzie Bat Books & Necklace of Kisses by Francesca Lia Block, Hipocrite in a White Pouffy Dress by Susan Gilman, anything by Keri Smith, Moonlight Chronicles by Daniel Price, Popism: The Warhol Sixties by Andy Warhol & Pat Hackett, Art & Soul by Pam Grout, The Creative Companion by SARK, & Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbit.
**Devote an entire week to wear a single pair of stripey knee-socks with every outfit! Bonus points for chewing bubblegum.
**Spend more time outside. Camp. Read in trees. Swim with a friend. Sketch in the woods. Or as SARK suggests, 'take miracle walks;' walk through nature and purposefully look for things that make life more magic. Look for nature's miracles. Don't forget to catch fireflies.
**Start becoming more comfortable with who you are. Develop your own niche in the music world, make mixtapes of your taste for your friends, start a major collection of crazy clothes that fit your personality & practice wearing them before next semester. Stop paying so much attention to mirrors, but instead the memories that you could be making, minus insecurity.
xoxo & summer wishes, SPRINKLE
