5 Things (I Planned) To Do This Holiday

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

Creds to Sobri

Study and exam weeks are the best time to think about EVERYTHING and when exam ends, everything just *poof* disappears. Before I sat for my exam last week, all ideas just flowed into my mind like the stream moves downhill, but now when I have so much time to spend, I end up doing nothing. Anyway, here are the 5 things I planned to do this holiday;

1. Learn in depth about photography
I've always wanted to learn more about photography, but I couldn't find any suitable time. I once thought of taking a photography course after I finish my degree, but that seems a bit impossible I guess. To be a professional photographer needs a lot of time and commitment (of course money as well because you gotta upgrade your lens as you become more pro), which I don't think I can manage it yet. For now, as long as I know how to use the camera, and not only just turn to the auto mode every single time, that's quite enough. I downloaded some ebooks to be read and of course I have to practise using the camera also. I bet the camera has showered with dust. Where's my camera again by the way?

2. Go to some new places I've never been to
One thing I love about going to new places other than capturing images of what my eyes see using a lower megapixel-kind-of 'eye' is to try the food they have there, especially those which are traditionally made and can't / hard to be found elsewhere. Whether it's in Malaysia, or somewhere abroad, all places have their own speciality and that makes they are unique from one another. InshaaAllah, I'm going to somewhere soon (the reason why I have to postpone updating my blog post), hope everything goes well amin. Where to? Stay tuneeeeed hehe.

3. Read more books
I have lots and lots and lots of books I haven't read. I loveeee going to a bookshop. I'd walk from one shelf to another shelf, going through from one book to the next one. Sometimes I'd remind myself that I still have a bunch of unread-and-tersadai books, and sometimes I'd just buy them either because of the interesting synopsis they have at the back of the book cover or based on someone's review. And every time after I've bought, I'd plan to finish the old ones first, get bored after a few pages and decide to start with the new one. End up reading all books halfway and stop. I sold some of my books (I have and haven't read) because they take up so much space in my cupboard, but I still need more books ...

4. Publish blog posts consistently
I've been trying. Like really, really trying. I have a love-hate relationship with my blog. I love writing, but na-uh, not at a wrong time. After days of I-wanna-write-but-got-other-stuff-to-do, I finally have the momentum to write this blog post. As I'm having a 3-month break, I will try my best to publish a blog post consistently. Hope my mood will always be there whenever I need it *fingers crossed*. If I didn't post anything on my blog for more than 3-4 days, check my Instagram if there's any update. If not... please wake me up. I might accidentally fall asleep while trying to write one haha.

5. Update my travel journal
I just bought a new notebook and make it as my travel journal. I'm soooo excited to update about the old and upcoming trips! I have 3 different pencil cases for my pens and stuff to decorate my journal. Though I don't really travel, but lets just see how it goes.


Anyway, if you have a long holiday ie. more than 1 month, what do you usually do? Is there any plan? Or do you just go with the flow?
