Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s time for a food review! On Friday I bought a bag of candy at Whole Foods that I hadn’t tried before caramel apple cups! I love fruit and I enjoy chocolate and almond butter as well. I was excited to try this candy and it did not disappoint. I loved the apple flavor. I was happy that I could taste the apple flavor clearly. To me it tasted really good with the chocolate,caramel,and almond butter. I liked the way the flavors blended together. I definitely recommend trying this if you are able to.
Hello, my bucket list friends! In my last post I talked about what I did during my weekdays now it is time to talk about what I did during my weekend. Sometimes I include Friday in these posts but since I already covered Friday in the post I just mentioned ( You can read it HERE) I will only be talking about Saturday and Sunday in this post. Without anymore introduction it is time to get to it!
Saturday – Looking through my pictures of what I did this day I remember that I tried a candy that I got at Whole Foods the day before. I’m going to do a separate post reviewing this item but I will say that it was really good. I’m happy to say that on this day I went to Starbucks and then went for a walk in the park with my coffee, my mom and the neighbor’s dog. It was a very beautiful day and I was happily surprised to see that the park was not busy. I climbed to the top of the playground and then went down the slide. I posted the video of me going down the slide on my Instagram my user name is summerrockstar if you want to see it. After the park I went to CVS. I love that CVS sells Claire’s products. I got a set of three Claire’s bracelets plus a bunch of other great items including a TY plush toy, a magazine about animals, hair bows, and peppermint candy. After my little shopping spree I waited in the car with the dog while my mom bought birdseed at another store in the shoppingcenter. While I was in the car I posted on BE Real. I took a picture of my new TY plush sitting on the dashboard. I was very happy with my Be Real post for the day. After that it was time to head back home. After relaxing at the house for a while, we went to go visit a family member. On the way there we stopped at a store where I got this super cute gingerbread cookie. It was a pretty great day!
Sunday – This day was pretty relaxed overall however I did do a cute mouse suncatcher craft kit and we also went into town to do some errands. I happy to say that yes these errands included Starbucks. When I went to pick up the drinks that I had ordered at Starbucks, I saw that they had accidently made one of the drinks I had ordered iced instead of hot. Not only were they super cool about remaking it they let me keep the iced one too. I’m actually drinking that iced one right now as I write this! Our other errands were Petco, Trader Joes and Safeway. At Trader Joes I got a snack that I had never seen before. I can’t wait to try it and do a review on it and at Safeway I got a cupcake that had three butterfly rings on top! It was a pretty easy going day but I enjoyed it.
Thank you for reading! I hope all of you had great weekends!
Hello, my bucket list friends I’m going to be honest. I’m really loving my life right now. There is something so beautiful about not having to wake up to an alarm clock and rush out the door. This week is so normal and so special at the same time. I already wrote about my Monday ( You can read about it HERE) I thought it would be fun to write a little something about each of my days this week. I do this a lot for weekends. However, this week is different then how my weeks have been so I decided the weekdays needed a blog post this week.
Tuesday- I went into my new job at Urban Remedy! I have really grown to be a huge fan of selfcare and this company is all about self care and health. I’m so happy to be working here!
Wednesday- This day was so amazing that it also got its own blog post! ( You can read about it HERE) The highlights of this day were seeing my wonderful friend, going to a local thrift store and getting my nails done. I also published a post on Vocal Media.
Thursday- I shared my vocal media post on my social media and it got a pretty good response. You can read it HERE) That night I went to Starbucks and Walgreens. At Walgreens I got a few things including popcorn, a drink and lip balm from Burts Bees.
Friday- I went into my job at Urban Remedy to do some training. It went really well. I’m really happy that I got a job here. After work I went to Whole Foods. I got some yummy stuff there including a box of my favorite fruit snacks that come with these cool trading cards.
Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday was so much fun so I decided my memories of it needed its own blog post! The first fun thing I did yesterday was a craft kit. It was a simple coloring craft kit where I colored a wooden magnet shaped like a dog. I made a video of me coloring it. (You can find the video on my Instagram Page my username is summerrockstar ) My big highlight of the day was getting to see my amazing friend. I’m so blessed that we have been able to see each other a fair amount lately. When my friend picked me up our first stop of our day was Panera Bread. We both really like the food there. I had tomato soup there yesterday and I highly recommend it! After lunch we went to a local thrift store. I thought that they had closed for the day already but it turned out they were still open. I’m so glad we went to the thrift store because I got some really cool items for my collection. The items I got were a folder that had four photos from the Lion King inside, two Barbie books, a Barbie doll, a Barbie backpack and a quiz book. It was a good day for Barbie items at the thrift store yesterday! After thrift shopping we decided to go get our nails done. We were able to walk right in with no wait. We both really enjoyed getting to relax. I loved the massage chairs that they had. I picked this beautiful green color for my nails called watermelon. I also got my eyebrows and upper lip waxed for the first time and I have to say I’m really happy with the way it looks. When all that was done there was one thing left to do. We went to Starbucks for iced coffee. It was on the warmer side yesterday so iced coffee was the perfect choice for yesterday’s weather even though it is October! Yesterday was truly a beautiful day.
Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday was the last day of me being a preschool teacher. It was definitely a bittersweet day. I’m happy that I made this decision for myself and my health but every time one of the kids got picked up yesterday I got sad knowing I may not see them again. I got a going away card from my coworkers and boss so that was super nice. I’m still a mix of scared and excited but I got a job at a great company and I can’t wait to start working there. Having a lower stress job will give me the time and energy to focus on my writing and voice acting. Anyways after my last day I went to Target because in my mind a trip to Target is a good way to celebrate anything including the end of my career in childcare. At Target I was happy to see that there were some Christmas things out in the Dollar section. I got two Christmas craft kits. In the Toy section I also got two Barbie color reveal dolls. I’m also really excited about this scalp massager I got. Even though I was tired from my last day I’m glad I went to Target after. I’m proud of myself for giving my career in childcare my best shot and I’m also proud of myself for knowing when to walk away.
Hello, my bucket list friends! Today is my last day at work before I officially leave the world of child care. Hopefully this the last day I will have to wake up early for awhile. Before my career officially comes to an end I had one more weekend as someone who had to go back to the world of preschool/childcare on Monday morning. This weekend was pretty normal but it was also pretty nice. On Friday after work I went to Safeway to get a few things. My favorite things that I got at Safeway that day are a pack of 24 candy canes and a Christmas cat coloring book. I know it’s October but I can’t help it. I love Christmas! On Saturday I did one of my favorite activities. I went to Starbucks then I went to a park. At the park I made sure to go down the slide! I like the play structure at this park and it was not crowded at all. After the park I went to a local toy store where I got some horse toys, a craft kit, a pop toy, and a bath bomb style toy that has a sea animal toy hidden inside. I should add that the weather was absolutely beautiful. It did get cold later that day but when I was in town it was really nice. After I came home it was a pretty relaxed day overall. My cat got to spend some time outside that is one of his favorite things to do. Later on in the I made a fun video for Instagram it was windy and cold when I made that video so I went back inside right after recording that video. ( You can see the video on my Instagram page my username is summerrockstar)I also spent sometime playing Project Makeover on my phone I love that game. Sunday was a pretty relaxed day as well. I finally decorated the biggest pumpkin that I got at the pumpkin patch earlier this month. The highlight of my day was going on our normal Sunday errands. I got a snack to review at Trader Joe’s, and I got a big cupcake with three rings on top at Safeway! Oh and before all that I went to Starbucks and got an iced coffee. Later that night I watched the Rookie one of my favorite TV shows. It was a pretty nice and easy weekend.
Hello,my bucket list friends! On Wednesday after work I went to my favorite local Goodwill location. I didn’t get a lot of items on this trip but I’m pretty excited about one of the items that I got. One of the first items that I selected was TY plush dog I also got some TY toys that came in fast food meals. In the book section I found a horse and pony sticker book that still had some unused stickers. Now, for the item that I’m most excited about. I was so happy that they had an American Girl game at the Goodwill! It is a game about making wishes and as a professional day dreamer that is a perfect game for me. Thanks for reading this short post!
Hello, my bucket list friends! It’s time for another fun food review. Trader Joe’s is good at providing fun things for me to review. I got this item on Sunday I saw it up at the register and since I’m a coffee lover I knew I had to try this. I liked that beans were different flavors and that they didn’t all look the same. I loved this sweet snack it was the perfect mix of coffee and chocolate. It took me about two days to finish the small bag but it could take longer if you spread it out a bit more than I did. I highly recommend trying this if you are a coffee lover!
Hello,my bucket list friends! It is time for another weekend blog post. The weekend was pretty normal but I still enjoyed it. On Friday after work I did something that I really needed to do. I got a massage! I had a lot of tight muscles due to stress and my poor muscles needed some help. The massage place I go to is in the mall. After my massage was finished I went to Claire’s where they were having a 12 items for 12 dollars sale. It was a great deal. After Claire’s I got a pretzel before going home and taking a bath! On Saturday my parents and I left the house earlier then we normally would because we had a voucher for a free dump run. I know it’s so exciting right ? After the dump we went to Target which is truly exciting for me. I found some great things at Target like I normally do. Some of the things I got were stickers, play-doh, a package of beads and some cute socks. However the thing I was most excited about was this self care themed Barbie doll. I’m all about self care so I thought that was really cool. I’m very happy to have this doll in my collection. After going to Target we went to have lunch at El Pollo Loco. It had been a while since I had been there so I was excited to go. After lunch we went back home and I had a pretty low key day relaxing. I did take a bath with bath bombs of course. On Sunday I had my first in person job interview since I put in my two weeks notice at my current job. After my job interview I went to Starbucks I was in need of an iced coffee. I was also in need of a walk because it was such a beautiful day. So my mom and I went on walk on my favorite local trail. After coming home for a while I went back out to run some errands. My favorite place we went during our errands was Trader Joe’s. I got some chocolate peanut butter candy and chocolate covered expresso beans! Later that night I did some work on the area I’m going to being using for my home recording studio! I’m excited to actually get my voice acting career started. Overall it was a decent weekend thanks for reading!
Hello,my bucket list friends! I know the title of this post is a little odd but I consider myself to be an open person and I have a lot of emotions that I want to sort through right now so here goes nothing. I’m just gonna come right out and say it. I’ve decided to move on from my career in preschool and childcare. I have worked on and off in the childcare industry since I was in high school. I have worked in summer camps, done babysitting, I worked at an indoor playground,an after school program, and preschools. The stress of this industry has been negativity impacting me for a while now. I have walked away from this industry before only to come crawling back to the steady hours it offerd. It is easy to find jobs in the childcare industry when you are qualified because there is a high turnover rate. I have put in my two weeks notice at my current job. I also signed a contract to myself saying I would never return to childcare industry. I’m going to be blunt it is a high stress and low paying industry. Most of the employees in this industry are under stress and pressure. It’s not a very healthy environment when you have a bunch of stressed out people working together. I’m excited to move on from this career that is honestly harmful to my health. However, I’m terrified because I’m not sure what’s next. I know I want to have a career in voice acting and writing but I’m not going to be able to start making money in that right away. I’ve been applying to a lot of jobs and I will see which one I end up with with. I know that having a lower stress job will give me the energy I nees to focus on my dreams. I know God has a plan for me it’s just hard because I don’t know what that plan is but I also know that he will show me in his perfect timing. I’m so proud of myself for taking this important step in my life. I should have left this industry a long time ago but I let fear hold me back. Well not anymore. Things are uncertain right now but I’m looking forward to new adventures.
