Freedom. How I love the word. Especially when you’ve finished your last exam…..last week. Now summer is here and well, the word ‘boredom’ is certain to follow ‘freedom’. To prevent ‘boredom’ dethroning ‘freedom’, I’ve conjured a to-do list for the summer. Some petty, some normal and some outright preposterous.
For those on Facebook, you already know my list 😉
And this list will eventually get longer and more ridiculous because it is me (and me friend Hannah) composing this list…
