Bring on Summer 2013!

For the first time in, like, well, ever, I actually have plans for a good chunk of my Summer holidays this years and they're good plans at that. So that means I won't be spending 3 months planted on my backside. It'll just be like 2 months instead. Last year was an amazing Summer for Britain as a whole but this year is quite possibly gonna be even more awesome for me!

Me and my sister Hannah last Summer :)
First of all, in less than a month (!), I'm going a la Florida avec ma famille. I don't know why I went all French there but I'm just gonna go with it. I'm so excited as it means that I'll finally get to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! The Potterhead in me can hardly contain herself. We're staying on Universal for the first week so that means I'll also get spend, you know, like a good day just riding the Hulk rollercoaster over and over cause that beast is just all kinds of awesome!

After our themepark orientated week, we're going to tootle on down to Key West for some relaxation. I plan on lying in the sun and reading for the whole week. Sounds like a plan to me. Well, I might have a wee bit of a snorkel and a few other things but for the most part me and my Kindle are going to spending a lot of time together.  One of the best parts of this holiday is that I'm guaranteed at least 2 weeks of sunshine this Summer no matter what the weather decides to do here! 

After I get back I do technically have a good month before the rest of my plans get in to full swing and unfortunately that month, while I will be sitting on my backside, I'll also be making my way through  a mahoosive pile of textbooks in order to try and find a possible research question for my dissertation next year. Not so fun but hopefully it'll be sunny and I'll be able to sun myself while I'm doing it.  A girl can dream, right?

Come the start of August I'll probably be heading up north to see my friend Charlie for her 20th birthday and in true "I don't want to be an adult" style, we're hitting the lazer quest and bowling! Oh yes! It also means that for exactly 20 days she can't call me Grandma! Double Win!

Then on the 8th begins the 4 days Hannah and I have been waiting a long time for....LEAKYCON LONDON!!!!! I'm pretty excited if you can't tell. An entire 4 days with likeminded people just geeking out about Harry Potter and various other fandoms. It's going to be awesome I can tell! I'll also be able to rock the Slytherin robe that I will have purchased from the WWoHP. Planned that well, didn't we? 

YouTube will be my focus on the 18th and 19th of August cause I'm going to Summer in the City! I didn't think I was going to this because all the tickets had sold out then Hannah's friend from work told us about the new batch of tickets and well, fast forward a few days and skip a bit of faffing about trying to get our card to work and we had tickets! I'm going with Hannah and her friend Beth and I'm so excited to get to meet some of my favourite YouTubers! Plus, Hank Green is confirmed! ERMAHGERD!

Only a few days later and I turn the big 21, except it's not that big cause nothing actually happens on your 21st in the UK but nevertheless it's still both cool and scary at the same time. I don't mind turning 21 per se, it just scares me how fast my life is moving at the moment. Before you know it I'll have graduated and entered the world of unemployment and no one wants that. I've no idea what i'm doing for my birthday, probably nothing massive as I had a pretty big 18th but we'll see.

There may be our usual annual trip to the wall of corn, otherwise known as Cornwall in there somewhere too, but that's not particularly exciting and will probably be cold and rainy. Still, if it is nice weather, it'll be nice to go down to the beach and eat my weight in fudge.

The downside to all of this is of course the damage it'll will cause to my bank account but I'm not gonna let that bother me. I'll worry about that in September when I'll be getting my student loan anyway so it'll be fine. That's totally what they give you a loan for. Obviously. I may be broke at the end of it but I don't care cause it's gonna be totallymegafoxyawesomehot!

Have any of you guys got any cool plans for this Summer?
