Super Run 5k February 2018

Hello ,My bucket list friends ! One of my goals for 2018 is to get back into doing 5k races. I’m happy to say that I recently did my first race of the year it was a really fun! Keep reading to hear all about it !

 

Super Run 5k February 17th 2018

I really enjoy doing 5k races but it had been a while since I had done one because I was in massage school for a year . Now that I have more time I’m excited to get back into doing something I love . The day of the race I was excited and ready to go . As you might have guessed the race had a super hero theme. A lot of the racers dressed up in some really fun and creative costumes but I stuck to my workout pants and a purple shirt . I was doing the race with my mom and we both wanted to walk the 5k so we stayed together during the race . The race was held at a beautiful park that I had been to before but I had never done a race at . The was a lot of great scenery to look at as my mom and I fast walked our way through the race . When we got close to the finish I ran across the finish line ! I was so happy to get my awesome finisher’s medal . Not all 5k races give out finishers medals but I love when they do and that was one of the reasons that I chose this race . I had a great time with my mom at the Super 5k and I can’t wait until I get to do another one !

News boys concert 2018

 

Hello , my bucket list friends ! I recently went to my first concert of 2018 , It was so much fun and I’m so excited to tell you all about it , so hold on tight and here we go !

 

 

News Boys Concert February 16th 2018

I was so excited when my friend Ashley asked me to go to a concert with her . Ashley and I had gone to a concert together before and we had a lot of fun and I couldn’t wait for another fun- filled night . It was exciting to go to a new venue that I had never been to before . We got great seats that were only about 10 rows back from the stage. Our VIP tickets allowed us to get in early so we were able to buy some really cool rubber bracelets before the lines got to long . The Concert it’s self was wonderful the News Boys put on a very energetic and exciting show . I had a lot of fun Worshiping God with some amazing music ! Ashley and I both really enjoyed the concert. It was a great source of stress relief  for me, after having to deal with my laptop crashing and having to buy a new one.  Not hving a laptop really slowed down my studying and I was very frustrated. The concert was just what I needed. Overall it was an amazing night with some beautiful music and I can’t wait untill I get to have a fun-filled night like that again .

5 Amazing things about being single

Hello ,my bucket list friends and happy late Valentine’s day ! On Valentine’s day I posted a video on my YouTube channel ( you can Watch it HERE) in the video I listed my top 5 reasons why it is amazing to be single . I wanted to publish a blog post to go along with my video but my laptop decided to die so I was unable to get the post up until now ,so without further delay here is my blog post on why it is amazing to be single !

 

 

5 reasons why it is amazing to be single !

  1. Freedom – When you are single it is easier to make big or sometimes even small life choices . If you get an opportunity to move away and work your dream job or go on a long-term trip in another country it is a lot easier to say yes when you are single . When you are in a relationship you make life choices together . Being single allows you to make choices independently.
  2. Self discovery –  When you are single you have more time and energy to focus on growing as a person . When you are with someone so much time is put into working on your relationship that sometimes people don’t have the opportunity to explore who they are . This can cause people to grow apart and can even end relationships. Being single gives you the time to really discover who you are and decide what you want out of life.
  3. Way less Drama – When you’re single there tends to be less stress to deal with . Some people who are in relationships are always arguing about something . Getting in to disagreements is apart of life but it seems to happen more to people who are in relationships . I like living a low stress life and being single makes that easier to accomplish.
  4. Less obligations – In a relationship there are a lot of obligations such as buying gifts for birthdays and valentines day , celebrating your anniversary, remembering when all those dates are , having two families to spend holidays with and pressure to return phone calls and texts as soon as possible . When your single you usually don’t have to decide where to go for holidays and there are less dates to remember and less gifts to buy .

5.  Growing your circle of friends – Being single gives you more time and desire to meet new people and explore your interests . When your single you have more time to grow your circle of friends and you don’t have to worry about your partner disapproving who you chose to hangout with .

 

So, there you have it my top 5 reasons why it is amazing to be single . Wether you are  single or in a relationship I hope you are enjoying it !

January 2018 wrap up!

Hello, bucket list friends since January is ending soon I thought I would do a quick wrap up on the first month of 2018. I’ve been working on somethings this month and I can’t wait to tell you all about it so here we go!

 

 

My life in January 2018

 

January always seems to go by slowly for me. There does not seem to be a lot happening in January and the month just drags on. Also, the gloomy weather can cause me to become depressed. I discovered a long time ago that walking is a great way to improve my mood and that is what I have been doing a lot of this month. I have been on many walks this month and some even on sunny days! Two of my favorite walks that I took this month were the one by the beach and the one to the pond on a trail that had been closed for a long time, It felt good to go on that trail again. I also started working on one of my more long-term bucket list items #195 read 100 books in one year this month I read 8 books, so I’m off to a great start. I’ve also been doing a lot of writing this month I’ve started writing a fiction story The Unschooled Dairy of Aspen Roads (you can read it here

 

). I plan to do a lot more fiction writing this year and I have been working on two other books that I have not posted. I’ve also spent some great times with family and friends this month and as you can tell from my last blog post I dyed my hair green and that was bucket list item #166 I also booked my vacation for this summer and the destination is on my bucket list, I signed up for a 5k next month as well!   To top it all off today a whole box of my little pony toys that I won from eBay arrived today, I had so much fun looking through all the ponies. January might not usually be a very fun month but this time I feel like I turned that around, I mean I crossed off a list item and I had some great friend time! I did face some obstacles month but overall the year is off to a great start .

#166 dye my hair green

Hello, my bucket list friends I’m so excited to tell you all about the first list item that I crossed off this year! I have been wanting to dye my hair green for a long time but I had not gotten around to it but I finally decided that it was time to live this small dream of mine!

 

#166 dye my hair green

 

Green is my favorite color and I have wanted to have it as my hair color for years well I decide that there was no time like now and I went for it! I bought some Splat hair color at Walgreens I got the deep emerald color. It is a very dark green but because my hair is a very dark brown I knew I needed to lighten it first luckily the hair dye came with the supplies to make my hair lighter. After reading the directions I put the hair bleach all over my hair and let it sit there for a little less than an hour it was a lot lighter not bleach blond but light. After washing and drying my hair it was time to put in the green dye. I put it all over my hair doing my best not to make a huge mess. After letting it sit I washed and dried my hair again. It was green on the top but not all over. It doesn’t matter though because I really like it! I’m happy that I crossed this item of the list. I can’t wait to see what item I cross of next!

New year new list items

Hello, My bucket list friends! Since we are still in the first month of 2018 I thought that it would be a good idea to add some new items to my bucket list. My list is always growing as I discover new things that I want to do. Take a look at my new list items and feel free to use them for your own list!

 

  1. Meet Alice cooper

I know it’s surprising that I did not have this on the list from the very beginning It was because I was worried that it would never happen but I’m so over that now. I have so many crazy things on the list that this one fits right in

  1. Be on the radio

I want to be on TV and write this goes with my goal of inspiring people to go for their dreams .

 

  1. Get acupuncture

When I was in massage school acupuncture was mentioned from time to time, but I had been interested in trying it before I went to school for massage.   I’m curious to see what it feels like.

  1. Go to knotts berry farm

I love going to amusement parks and this a pretty popular one  and it  looks like a lot of fun and as a bonus it’s close to Disneyland!

  1. Go to Magic Mountain

I’ve drove past this amusement park before and I’ve heard people talk about its impressive rollercoasters. It seems like the perfect place for an adventure.

 

 

 

I’m excited to have these new items join my list and I can’t wait to see what items I will cross off my list this year! Maybe even some of these new ones.

Rock on – Christina Epperly
