Summer Goals + Updates to the Blog

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, the end of school is nearing and I’ve been really busy on the weekends. Plus, I haven’t had much inspiration. BUT! All that is going to change- I’ll talk about that in a bit. But before that, I’d like to share some random summer goals! I will be splitting them up into categories for the sake of… well, being organized.

Confession- I seriously was too lazy to make a graphic, so I used this one from last year which I never used…


  • Post at least 3 times each month
  • Post NO MORE than three times a week
  • Stay in touch with blogging friends
  • Don’t put on too much (don’t start other blogs, etc)
  • Share what I’m doing/did over the summer
  • Share photography
  • Post more songs, photos, writing, faves, etc.


  • TRY to take camera (depending on place)
  • If I have camera, TAKE PICTURES!
  • Try to jot down what I did- no need for a full journal
  • Enjoy myself


  • Get summer reading books done by end of July, read them at the end of August as refresher
  • Organize school supplies before the first day of school
  • Buy school supplies closer to when the list comes out
  • Make sure I’m all set for first day of school
Sorry it’s blurry! But seriously, you’ve gotta read Wonder if you haven’t already.


  • Save my money for the trips
  • Sleep in later
  • Stay of screens more
  • Work on art, baking, etc.
  • Spend time with family
  • More time outside
  • Work on my guitar, try tuning it as well
  • Work on EM (my book with my bestie) for camp NaNo

I think that’s it for goals! I tried my best to think of some, haha!

Now, I have some updates for the blog! (no, I am not leaving)

So, during the summer I am going to try to post once a week, but I may post more or less depending on how busy and/or motivated I am.

I’m going to try to post more updates, songs/faves, writing, photos, and things like that.

I also want to redesign my blog, because although I like this current one, it’s just making me feel more pressured to post more professional posts.

I’m not really sure what I want, though. If anyone has any ideas, please fee free to share!

Sushi… for dolls! Now my dolls can have the same love for sushi that I do!!!

Also, would you like some updates on what’s been going on in my life? Sorry I didn’t get to a May recap post, I was so busy! My girl scout troop went to the mountains for last weekend, which was really fun! Plus my grandparents are coming for the summer soon!

I want to be more open on my blog as well. If that means sharing my LOVE for Full House, then, I guess that’s what it means. (just kidding, I know that made no sense to you)

Anyways, thanks for reading, and thanks for being a part of my 110 followers! It means SO much, honestly!

  1. You are going to do great on your summer goals, Ara!! 😀 Also, maybe for a blog design since your name is Sparks of Ara you could do like a sparkler theme, you know the sparklers that you use at fourth of July? 😀 I just thought that might be fun!! Have a happy summer and looking forward towards your next post! 😀
