Things I am looking forward to after exams

I am currently in essay hell. 5 weeks and 3 essays is totally doable right? And you have guessed it, I am currently procrastinating (as per usual) to start the first essay. I would seriously love to be in bed catching up on 2 series of Pretty Little Liars and eating my weight in chocolate. But instead, I am sitting at my desk, pretending to work.

So in an attempt to motivate myself, I am writing down the things that I am most excited to do after all my essays and exams are over. Hopefully this will give me the push to work hard but play harder in summer.

1. Edinburgh Fringe 2015
Of course this had to be at the top of my list. If you are a new reader, I went to the fringe with the production team of a show from university for 2 weeks, and it was seriously the best two weeks ever. I am so happy that I am going back this year for the whole 4 weeks as the PRODUCER of a show (I know, how scary!). There are lots of things to do before we head up in August, but I am so excited!

2. Netflix Marathons
I currently don't have netflix, but as a treat to myself, I am going to buy my subscription once I finish my exams. I am so ready to catch up with 'Orange is the New Black', 'House of Cards' and of course 'The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' and so many other shows that I have not stopped hearing about.

3. Spontaneous days out
What I love about finishing exams at university is the fun days out that we have. No one is up for doing anything in term 3 thanks to revision and exams, and it is the perfect way to explore the area and find some undiscovered gems. Plus, saving all that money not going out during revision period can be useful for something right?

4. Spending time with friends from home
I very rarely see any of my old school friends any more. I do miss it a lot. Coming home for Christmas or Easter is always a rush of trying to do work and seeing family, where in summer you have over 2 months. It is the perfect time to catch up!

5. Work experience
Yes, I am excited to get some work experience this summer. Apart from going to Edinburgh, I want to find something to do with theatre to spend a week or two to build up my CV (as I have been going through so many 'what am I going to do with my life' crisis over the past few weeks. Of course, this isn't helping by the little amount of work I am getting done!). I hope to build some contacts and hopefully get closer to my dream of working in theatre marketing.

What are you most looking forward to in summer?
