101 in 1001 #9

Hiya August! I've been thinking about my 101 in 1001 list quite a lot recently. I'd thought I would have an abundance of free time once university finished, but of course I landed myself an internship and now I work seven days a week. It goes without saying that I have next to no free time now, but I've managed to squeeze a few things in. 

Reach 250 followers on my blog 
After what felt like an eternity of flipping between 248 and 249 followers, I somehow made it to 250. I have since grown to an almighty 257, so as they say in show business, watch this space ;) 
I jest, of course. Blogging is about so much more than the numbers and I would like to thank each and every one of you who have stood by me recently or offered me a kind word. It hasn't gone unnoticed, I couldn't be more grateful to be a part of this community.

Finish my degree with 2:1 or higher
I graduated! It was fine. Now what? This leads nicely in to...

Get work experience over the summer
I bagged an internship a week after my final university deadline! Now, I'm well aware that an internship is different to work experience, because, well money, but they fit under the same umbrella. Or at least I say they do for the purpose of this post. I've marked this as completed as I can't imagine I'll be having any more work experience after this, although I would definitely like to if any publishers are reading this. Call me. 

Continue adding to my memory jar
I turned my memory jar into a TBR jar, so I can't really add any more memories, just newly acquired books. I really enjoyed having a memory jar, and if I were hipster enough to have a collection of unused jars then I would have kept this going. I need to start using my TBR jar more often actually, but as I've been using the library more often, I haven't been reading anything that doesn't have a return date. 

Teach Dylan to ride a bike
Okay, so this was going really well until recently. Once the weather perked up a bit, our garden became a bit unruly and therefore unsuitable for bike riding lessons. Determined to do it, though! 

Go to a literature festival
I ordered tickets to see Patrick Ness talk at Bath Children's Literature Festival in September and I am SO excited for it. His new book is out in October, and I honestly can't wait to read it. 

Buy picture frames and put them up
So I've got the frames, and I've got some prints but as of yet they are not on my walls yet. We rent our house so Joe doesn't want to put anything up incase we lose our deposit, which I think is silly, but he's the one with the mad DIY skills so who am I to argue? Actually, in a slightly related note - do you know where I can buy a square picture frame? I have a square print and the ones from IKEA are too small :( 

Quite a lot since my last update! I'm not entirely sure how much I'll be able to complete within the next couple of months, I think I'm going to have to crack down and really try hard to cross some more off! Are you doing a 101 in 1001 list? I'd love to see!
