3 years of blogging !

Hello, my bucket list friends it’s May 29th and that makes it the third anniversary of when I first posted to this blog ! Whenever I get asked what my hobbies are blogging is the first thing that comes to mind . I love writing this blog ,It has really helped me to discover my passion for writing and I hope to publish a book or even books someday . It has been amazing getting to share my bucket list adventures and more with the world ! I remember on my first blogging anniversary I said that I was going to follow the list of traditional anniversary gifts . Well I only ended up doing that for the first year . Last year I was in school and this year I’ve been so busy with my two jobs , my three cats , spending time with family and friends and of course going on some great adventures . That I decided not to do the yearly gift to myself  but really this blog is a gift all its own . It has allowed me to share my stories and dreams with the world . I’m  very proud of this blog and I can’t wait to share more of my adventures with everyone !

#147 go paddle boarding

Hello , my bucket list friends ! I’m so excited to write about crossing another item of my list ! I just crossed this one off on Saturday . It was challenging but a lot of fun !

 

 

147 go paddle boarding

My mom and I have been talking about going paddle boarding for probably over a year now but Saturday was finally the day ! There is a park about 10 or so minutes from my house where you can rent stand up paddle boards. It was only 15.00 an hour to rent a paddle board . My mom and I  have never done it before but after a little bit  guidance from the workers We were ready to go ! I spent a vast majority of the time paddling around the lake on my knees . My mom was really good at standing up me not so much . I stood up for a fraction of a second before falling down on the front of my board and causing water to flood the front half of my board . I just got the bottom half of my pants went so it wasn’t that bad . I tried standing up a few more times but I never could quite get my balance right . With all that being said it was a lot of fun just paddleing around on my knees I felt like I was a great explorer or something . there was a nice little breeze and it was great being out on the water with the geese ! It was a great adventure and I would love to go paddle boarding again !

Purple hair dye adventure

Hello , my bucket list friends ! When my green hair dye started to fade , I bought some purple hair dye but I got busy and I didn’t use it for a while but this week I finally did ! It was a messy but fun adventure so relax as I tell you all about it !

 

Hair dye madness !

I finally got around to using the purple hair dye that had been sitting in my room for longer than I had intended . I have dyed my hair purple once before like over 5 years ago I remember it making a little bit of a mess but this time it made a really big mess . I somehow manged to get the dye all over my hands , face and neck . It also ended up on the wall , the floor and the sink . It took me a while to clean every up and even longer to wash the dye out of my hair . My ears and neck are still purple ! Even with all of the mess I really like the way my hair looks . It looks very artsy and even rock star like . I probably wont dye my hair purple again but I’m gonna enjoy it while it lasts !

Five great reasons to make a bucket list

Hello ,my bucket list friends ! I hope you are all having a great month . I really love writing this blog and I want to publish more posts each month so I thought it would be fun to make a list of the reasons why having a bucket list is awesome because I’m surprised that many people don’t have one !

Reasons to have a bucket list

  1. keeping your dreams in sight – Let’s face it life is busy and it is easy to lose sight of the things that you want most in life . A bucket list is the perfect thing to keep you focused on your dreams .

2. It’s a great way to face your fears – Having things written down is great way to remember to get things done . If you want to face some of your fears write them down on your list . Seeing them written down can be great motivation to make your fears a thing of the past and imagine how great you will feel when you cross that item off .

3. discovering new dreams – As I looked for list items ,I found some cool things to add to my list that I probably would have never thought of on my own . By making a bucket list I discovered some cool things that I got excited about . My list helps me to dream big and discover new goals .

4. Going on great adventures with great people – I love getting the help of my family and friends to cross items of my list . Crossing items off your list can be wonderful way to make some lasting memories with your loved ones .

5. Bucket lists are fun ! – I enjoy having a bucket list for many reasons but really they are a lot of fun ! I have created so many great memories by crossing items off my list . There are somethings that were a lot fun that I may not have done if I didn’t have my list .

I hope this inspired you to make a list of your own !

mission MBLEX accomplished

Hello , my bucket list friends as some of you may know I graduated from massage school back in October . (You can read about it here ) Even after finishing an intense one year program I still had a big hoop to jump through before I could officially become a massage therapist . I had to pass an exam know as the MBLEX. I first took the test back in December , I was unable to pass the first time and I was very upset about it . I cried a lot that day but I moved on from that and stepped up my studying and I took the test this past saturday and I passed it ! I’m so happy to be done with that test ! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off me. I can’t wait to start working as massage therapist ! After I finish some more paper work I will be able to have two amazing careers ! I’m so proud of myself and I feel so loved from my family and friends ! Thank you all for you messages of congratuations !
