It is time to add more items to the bucket list

Hello, my bucket list, friends! I have not crossed any items off of my bucket list this year, but I have a feeling that will change sometime around the middle of the year. However, for now, I thought it would be fun to add some new items to my bucket list. It can be hard to decide what items to add to your list. I wrote a bunch of ideas down in my notebook, but I didn’t end up adding them all to my list. I find that sometimes the best way to come up with ideas is to let your imagination run wild and write down whatever comes to mind and then pick the best ideas that you came up with. I had fun coming up with ideas for my list. I hope you all come up with some fun ideas for your lists! Without any more delay, here are the new items that I am adding to my list.

301. Tie Dye a plush animal

302. Go on a cruise

303. Drive a boat

304. Travel to another country

305. Stay in a place that is listed in the OMG! category on Airbnb

306. eat cake from a vending machine

307. have my own office room

308. Be a guest on a pod cast

309. Read a book every day for a month

310. see a bear in the wild

The hard stuff

Every year has its hard moments, and this year was no different. In January, I said goodbye to my cat Sherri it was very painful. Time has helped to heal me, but it was a very difficult thing to go through.

Walking away from my career in childcare due to my health , I’m so proud of myself for making this choice. It was a hard conclusion to come to, but I’m glad I did. ( You can read about it HERE and HERE ) My mentel health has improved since I walked away from my career. I’m hoping and praying that 2023 will be the year that my voice acting career really comes together.

All things considered, I have to say that it was an overall good year, and I hope 2023 is an even better year!

Blogmas day 22 One more bucket list item and more Los Angeles fun

Hello, my bucket list, friends! I’m happy to say that I crossed off three bucket list items during my trip to La. In my previous post, I talked about two of the items that I crossed off. Before I tell you about the item I crossed off, let me tell you about my first adventure of the day. There are so many interesting museums in LA, and there was one museum I had been wanting to visit. It was not a bucket list item, but I was still excited to visit it. The museum that I visited that day was LACMA ( Los Angeles County Museum of Art ) . I started my LACMA adventure by taking a bunch of pictures at the outdoor exhibit known as Urban Lights. This outdoor art exhibit is free to visit, so even if you don’t want to pay to visit LACMA, you can still get some amazing pictures at this outdoor exhibit. I highly recommend checking it out if you have time on your next trip to LA. After my photoshoot outside, I went into the museum. There was so much to see! I took pictures of some of my favorite art pieces. As with most art museums, it would be easy to spend a long time here. Next time I visit an art museum I may bring a sketch book with me. After spending some time at LACMA,I went to a nearby Starbucks to rest and charge my phone, and then it was time to cross off my third bucket list item of the trip. I decided to cross off number 287. Go on a vegan picnic! I went to the veggie grill to get food for my picnic. I got the harvest bowl with tofu on top. I walked around the Grove ( an outdoor mall) for a while before I walked over to a nearby park. At the park , I sat at a picnic table, and I enjoyed the very good vegan food from veggie grill. I didn’t finish the whole bowl in one sitting, but I was full, and I was excited that I would get to finish it for dinner. After crossing this item off my bucket list, I walked back to the Grove. While I was at the grove I went to Barnes and Noble where I got two books. I got a Barbie book and a very cute book about Los Angeles. I also visited the farmers market that is by the Grove. I didn’t want any more food, but I did want to visit the sticker store there that is called Sticker World. I got some fun stickers there, including some Christian themed stickers and some horse stickers. Before I left the farmer’s market, I used the pressed penny so that I would have a fun souvenir from the farmer’s market. After all that adventure, I decided to go to Hollywood Boulevard before I left Los Angeles the next day. I walked around Hollywood Boulevard for a while before going to Walgreens, where I got three souvenir keychains, snacks, and water. Then it was time to go back to the hotel. I decided to use the bathtub at my hotel room since it was one of my last chances to do so. I had brought a lot of bath bombs from home, and I used a bunch of them in this one bath. It was another fun and exciting day of vacation.

Thanks for reading about my vacation.

Blogmas day 21, two bucket list adventures, and a fun day in Los Angeles!

Hello, my bucket list, friends! I’m here with a post that I’m excited to write! On December 20th, I crossed two more items off my bucket list, plus I enjoyed a day in Los Angeles. Let’s start by talking about the first item I crossed off my bucket list that day. I started my day in Los Angeles by crossing off bucket list number 275. Go on a tour of Warner Brothers Studios. There is something really fun about seeing where TV shows and movies are made. I really enjoyed crossing this item off my list. There was so much to see on the tour, and the guide did a wonderful job of providing us with many interesting facts about many of the things we saw on the tour.There were also many great photo opportunities. I love the photo of me on the couch in front of the Friends fountain. I also enjoyed the display of Christmas items they had. I love the selfie I took with Jack Frost. There was also a gift shop, of course, where I got a few fun items, including a hat that says writer on it. After the tour and the gift shop, I spent some time in the Starbucks that was located in the lobby where the tours started. It was a fun item to cross off my bucket list, and I had one more item to cross off that day. After my tour, I went to Hollywood to cross number 244 go to a blow dry bar off my bucket list. I had made an appointment online, and I was ready for a little relaxion after an already busy day. I really did enjoy having my hair washed and styled. I decided to get curls, and I really liked that way I looked. With another item off my list and a super cute hairstyle, I decided to go to an attraction called the giant’s house. This attraction is just like a selfie museum. There were so many fun props to take photos with. Some of my favorites were the giant high heel, the ball pit, the piece of cake, and the coffee cup. I love the photos that I took there. Oh, the giant lipstick was pretty great, too. After my visit to the Giant’s house, I decided to walk to one of my favorite souvenire stores. On the way to the store, I came across some guys carrying some absolutely beautiful snakes. I fell in love with the yellow snake, and I just had to have a picture of me holding it. The snake’s name was lemonade, and that was a perfect name for this snake because he is a yellow snake. After holding the snake for pictures, I made it to the souvenir store where I found some fun items to add to my collection, including a snow globe. I had one last stop before I went back to my hotel for the day. I accidently left my toothpaste at home, so I needed to get some more. I went to CVS, and I got the toothpaste plus some more souvenirs. It was a great first day of vacation. Thanks for reading about this part of my adventure in Los Angeles.
