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! I’ve been meaning to write this post for a little while. One day when I was scrolling through my WordPress news feed, I ended up reading a blog post that mentioned an app called Be Real. ( You can read the post HERE) It sounded interesting and I ended up downloading it. If you haven’t heard about this app before let me explain it. You post a photo once a day. When you take a photo on the app it uses both the front and the back camera. You post on the app when you get a notification. You have two minutes to post a picture of what you are doing at the moment. If you post after the two minute window your post is considered to be late. You can still post after the two minutes have past but the amount of time your were late will be displayed with your post. The whole idea of the app is to share your real unedited life. On other social media apps we tend to post the highlights of our lives and there is nothing wrong with that. However, it makes it easy to forget that nobody’s life is perfect. It’s easy to edit or use filters on social media sites but with Be Real you can’t do that. I want to make it perfectly clear that I really love using social media! I know it has downsides but overall I enjoy it. I love expressing myself and watching other people expressing themselves. It’s a great place to discover ideas and to be encouraged. I say all this because while Be Real is technically a social media app, it has been referred to as an anti social media platform. I personally never thought of it that way though. I think of it is as a fun new spin on social media. With Be Real I definitely share pictures of things that I normally wouldn’t usually post. Such as the break area at work, my microwave dinner, the ceiling at the airport and much more. I don’t always look my best in the pictures I post and I’m 100% ok with that. I like that Be Real encourages you to post some of the everyday moments that you probably wouldn’t think of sharing. I do have to admit that sometimes when I get a notification to share a picture I wait until I’m going to be doing something like shopping that I want to share. Also Sometimes especially when I’m working I don’t see the notification until later. There have been times when I wait to post one just because I’m busy or tired. However, I haven’t missed a day of posting since I started using Be Real. However, I really wish I knew more people who used this app. If you would like to add me user name is summerrockstar. I hope to see you on the app! Thanks for reading!
Hello, my bucket list friends! Another weekend is almost gone. This weekend went by really fast overall. Yesterday, I did an eight hour CPR class that I needed for work. It was slow at some points but it was very informative. I got coffee that morning before the class and after the class I went to Starbucks again. After Starbucks I went to Whole Foods and then Taco Bell.I spent the rest of the night relaxing Then that brings us to today. I took it pretty easy today. I wrote another article for Vocal Media and did some shopping for the week ahead. Oh and I got coffee today too. I’m sure that before I know it I’ll be writing a post about next weekend! Have a great week!
Hello,my bucket list friends ! Today is one of those days when I have a lot of random things that I want to write about so I decided to put them all in one post. Here we go.
I love my glittery nails ! My friend Amy and I got our nails done together. She got this beautiful blue color on her toes and I got pink and purple with glitter on my finger nails. I’m so glad that I decided to get a gel manicure because my nails still look amazing over a week after I got them done!
I can’t wait for my doll to return from the hospital. – I know that’s a weird sentence to read but I had to send one of my American Girl dolls off for repairs. I think it was last week or maybe the week before I sent my doll Coral to the American Girl doll hospital. I bought Coral off eBay earlier this year. After not having her for very long her leg fell off. Doll limbs can get loose over time and fall off. I’ve been meaning to send her to the hospital for a while now and I can’t wait for her to return!
I have had some good thrift finds lately. – I love going thrift shopping and lately I’ve been finding some great stuff such as American Girl stickers and books, arts and crafts kits, Beanie Babies and some nice clothes. Going thrift shopping is like going on a treasure hunt I never know what I’m going to find!
I went walking on one of my favorite trails – Due to weather,smoke and work schedules I haven’t been able to go on as many walks as I would like to. Getting to walk on my favorite trails again was great! It was a beautiful day !
Hello, My bucket list friends ! I know I’m late with this post but time has been going by so fast ! Anyways , enjoy reading !
Things I love March 2019
TV show Buddy VS. Duff – I love this show ! It’s a baking competition between two very famous bakers. It’s an exciting thrill ride of a contest between the cake boss and the ace of cakes. It’s awesome to watch two very talented bakers go head to head ! I highly recommend adding this show to your watch list !
My little Pony Ultimate Equestria collection – I wrote a blog post about how awesome this item is ( you can read it HERE )
Yogurt land – OK, so I’m not new to how amazing yogurt land is but I went three times in March ! They also now offer vanilla and chocolate ice cream ! I haven’t tried the chocolate but I can tell you that the vanilla is amazing !
Starbucks Cherry Mocha – this yummy drink made me feel like I was drinking chocolate covered cherries! ( You can read my review HERE)
Hello, my bucket list friends ! Sometimes there is not always one specific thing that comes to your mind to blog about and this is one of those times . When that happens it can be fun to just dump what ever random thoughts you have into a blog post so that’s what I’m doing today enjoy !
Just some random thoughts 3/18/2019
I love the Jewelry I bought at Claire’s yesterday- Yesterday I went to the mall and I went one of my favorite stores Claire’s. They were having an awesome buy 3 get 3 free sale. I got some super cute necklaces and earnings I’m even wearing one of the necklaces today.
2. I love the weather right now – It is so beautiful and sunny right now ! The sunny weather is like an instant mood booster for me . There has been a lot of rain this year and that’s a good thing but I’m so happy for sunny days !
3. Summer is on it’s way – Summer is my favorite season and when the weather is warm it makes me think of summer. I’m very excited summer is coming soon ! I can’t wait for the adventures I will have this summer !
Hello, my bucket list friends . Last month I wrote quite a few posts about my TMS treatments for OCD . If you want to read them just look at my posts on this blog from February 2019. Anyways, I thought it would be a good idea to give an update on how I’m doing since treatment.Hold on tight and here we go !
Dear OCD, I’m in charge now
In my previous posts about TMS I wrote about some of the changes that occurred during treatments. OCD began to lose it’s grip on me and I was feeling more in control then ever before. Well, I’m happy to say that things have continued to improve. Before receiving the TMS treatments, OCD controlled a large part of my day. It was always controlling what I could and could not wear, what songs I could and couldn’t listen to, what order I had to put the blankets on my bed and many more things that impacted my everyday life. I felt anxiety that if I didn’t follow OCD’s orders bad things would happen . I never truly realized just how much of my time that OCD took from me. Now, things are very different I’m in charge now. I’m able to make my own everyday choices with feeling little to no anxiety. If OCD stars to give me orders I remind it that I’m in charge now and I do what I want to do. I was so used to following OCD’s orders that now sometimes I have to stop and ask myself what I want to do . I feel so free now! Now , don’t get me wrong life is not perfect and it never will be but I feel a lot better now that I’m free from OCD’s control. OCD still sneaks in with it’s unwanted thoughts from time to time but I can dismiss these thoughts faster and easier then ever before ! I’m so happy that I took part in the study at Stanford. Things are looking up.
Hello, my bucket list friends ! Usually January is notorious for being a slow month that drags on . It always seems that way to me but this January flew by . It’s a weird feeling . We just had new year’s eve and now February is on it’s way. The stores are filled with Valentine’s day items and each day we get closer to welcoming February . Why did this January fly by so fast compared to the ones I’ve experienced in the past ? The answer is I’m not sure . I mean I did work a lot but I know I have done that in years past too . Maybe it was the weather we did have some really nice sunny days maybe that was the reason ? We had rain too so I just don’t know . I just know that it feels weird . I think I was excepting a more relaxing month but that just didn’t happen . I was busy , working hard and trying to keep my stress level down . Now don’t get me wrong this month was not a waste I crossed two items off my bucket list ( you can read about them HERE and HERE ),had great times with family and friends and chowed down on some yummy food . It just feels weird that it’s over all ready . Oh well time to set all the weird feeling aside and look forward to February !
Hello, My bucket list friends ! When posting on social media I sometimes use the hashtag bucket list life but what does that really mean ? I thought it would be a good idea to take a further look at this and also to give all of you some suggestions on how to live the bucket list life on a average day .
Living the bucket list life
To me Living the bucket life life is more then just crossing items off your bucket list, It is an attitude or maybe even a life style . To me a bucket list is not just a list of things to do in your lifetime. It’s the idea that life is really meant to be lived to the fullest .Let’s face it all to often our lives become a retinue of the same things over and over again. We get stressed and grumpy and we often forget to take time to do the things that we really enjoy, the things that make us smile and help us to truly love life . So how do you live the bucket list life ? Simply put you take time for you and the people and things you love . It’s about trying to mix up your routine to keep life exciting ! Yes, I’ll be honest some days are not that great and that’s OK. Living the bucket list life is not a solution to all of life’s problems but it is a way to make life a little happier . Below I’ve listed a few ways on how to live the bucket list life !
Try something new – Instead of getting the same thing for lunch try something new or wear clothes that you haven’t worn in a while mixing things up just a little bit will add a little bit of excitement to your day .
Do at least one thing you love everyday – It could be something as simple as watching a show you like or listening to your favorite playlist or setting some time aside for a hobby you enjoy like drawing or dancing . Taking time to do something you love will add a little boost of happiness to your day .
Day Dream – OK, I know it sounds a little silly but seriously instead of repeating your to-do list or thinking about all the bills you have to pay have a little fun with your thoughts ! Think about what you want to cross off your list next , your favorite memories , the best vacation you’ve even been on , or the trip you want to take next . Taking some time for positive thoughts will help to put you in a positive mood even if your not crossing an item off your list that day .
I hope you enjoyed reading my tips for living the bucket list life ! Have fun crossing off items everyone !
Hello , my bucket list friends ! This post is going to be a bit of a rant but have you ever been sick at a very inconvenient time ? I mean I guess there is never a good time to get sick but there are sometimes that are better or worse than others .When I was a kid my family got the flu during Christmas time . It was definitely not fun at all . Well currently I’m dealing with a very inconvenient sickness . On Tuesday I had to leave work early because I was feeling so sick . I was also unable to go to my second job that afternoon . Yesterday I missed an appointment and another shift of work . This morning I missed another shift at one of my jobs .In addition to missing all that work,on Tuesday night I was in horrible pain my abdomen was hurting so bad I thought I was going to have to going to the ER but fortunately the pain decreased and I was able to get some sleep. yesterday I was feeling very week and I didn’t to much but sleep and lay on the couch. Being sick is never fun but it’s hard for me to miss all this work when Christmas is coming and I have gifts to buy . The good news is I slept pretty well last night and I’m feeling ok today not 100% better but I feel well enough to make it to my afternoon job ! I’m excited to get back to work after being out for awhile . Stay Well my friends !
