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 .

Hello , my bucket list friend and happy March ! There are many things that I love about my life and having wonderful friends is defiantly one of them. For the first weekend in March I got to spend a fun-filled weekend in Monterey with my cousin Amanda and our friend Tamara. We had a great time and I can’t wait to tell you all about it so let’s go !
Monterey March 2018
The day of our trip to Monterey started off with a stop for food then another stop to get our nails done . I had never been to the nail place that we went to but they did a wonderful job . I love my green sparkly nails and my cousin got nail polish that changes colors ! After getting our nails done we were on our way . When we got to Monterey our first stop was the Monterey bay aquarium . I had to been to the aquarium before but it had been a long time . The aquarium is really big and we all had a fun time exploring and looking at every thing from jellyfish to penguins . We also got to watch a diver feed some of the fish . After exploring and shopping at the aquarium we checked in to our hotel that was right along the beach ! After we took sometime to rest at the hotel we went out to eat and we all enjoyed some really good food and dessert . After eating and walking around we came back to the hotel. I’m sad to say that I was not feeling very well so I stayed and rested while Amanda and Tamara went swimming . The next day started out with a short walk down to the beach . It was a beautiful sunny morning and the beach was fantastic, We all had a great time walking and running along the beach. After our adventure to the beach we went to breakfast at the black bear diner . I had never been to there before but after one visit I highly recommend it ! After checking out of the hotel we did a lot of exploring and some shopping around Monterey before having a very yummy dinner and heading back home . It was a very fun weekend and a wonderful way to celebrate Tamara’s birthday ! I hope you all have a great March ! Rock on – Christina Epperly
Hello ,my bucket list friends and happy February ! I hope you all are enjoying the shortest month of the year . Last month I crossed off my first list item for 2018 by dyeing my hair green but this month I decided to redo it when the color started to fade .I got the same brand and color as last time and the results were amazing ! I love having my hair green ! It’s so much fun ! I wonder what color I will dye it next !
PS. I wrote this post on my phone because my laptop is waiting for a new battery .
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!
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
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 .
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.
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!
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.
Hello, my bucket list friends! Since January always seems to be a slow month for me, I thought that now would be a good time to share with you one of the many lessons that I have learned in life. I have seen many people and I have even be one of those people who have a job that is not good for them, but they feel like they can’t or shouldn’t leave. There can be many reasons a person may feel this way, Money is of course the biggest reason you will hear but another reason is people get used to their jobs and even though they are unhappy they stay because it is what they know. Moving on from a job even a bad one can be difficult, but when it comes to having a good job you need to put yourself first in order to find a job where you can use your talents to achieve succus and be appreciated.
Looking back when I was in a job that was not good for me I missed many of these signs, I believed that it was normal to feel that way about your job. I’m so blessed that now I have two wonderful jobs, but I know that there are many people who are in jobs that are not right for them. Based on my personal experience here are five signs it’s time to move on from your job.
You dread being at work
You wake up on a work day and you wish you could be going pretty much anywhere else and you hope for traffic, car trouble or even a cold to keep you away from work. When you’re at work you constantly stare at the clock counting the minutes until your off. If a supervisor happens to ask if anyone wants to leave early, you always volunteer even if it means you will lose money. The truth is you are going to be spending a lot of your life working and there is nothing good about spending a large portion of your life dreading every day you have to work. Putting up with these feelings of dread and even sometimes hatred is not worth a pay check. Life is much better when you are spending your working years doing something you love or at least working in a place you don’t hate.
You are constantly talking about how bad or frustrating work is
When you’re not at work you can’t stop focusing on it in a negative way. You will talk about it to anyone that is willing to listen. You have many stories about how bad you have been treated at work. You could go on forever about being treated unfairly, receiving no support from your supervisors, and how you don’t feel appreciated. Even when you’re not at work you can’t get away from the way that you feel. When The negative emotions from your work are having a harmful impact on your personal life it really is time to move on. Your negative feelings for your job are stealing away conversations and time with your family and friends. It is next to impossible to enjoy life (even your days off) When you are in a negative work environment.
You are only in it for the money
If you didn’t need food or if you didn’t have any bills to pay you would leave in a heartbeat. You don’t enjoy what you do for hours a day. You find the work to be unfulfilling you don’t feel proud of what you do every day. With this kind of job when someone asks what you do for work you just answer in a disappointed or angry tone. If you’re not excited to tell others what you do, then you probably shouldn’t be doing it.
The other people at work
We will all have to work with people that we don’t like or that we would never spend time with outside of work. That’s just a fact of life, but when someone you work with epically a supervisor seems to go out of their way to put you down and is anything but helpful when you are having trouble, it is definitely time to address the problem. Doing this could help make the work environment safer for you and maybe even others. If after you contact other supervisors or even the HR department and nothing is done to resolve the situation, then it is time to move on to a safe work environment where the employee’s wellbeing is valued.
You’re bored or anxious
Some jobs are exciting and different each day other jobs are all about routine. Both types of jobs can be perfect depending on your personality, but sometimes people are in a hurry to start working that they will take the first or highest paying job that is offered to them. If you find yourself bored and feeling stuck doing the same thing every day .Or on the other hand, if the very thought of going to work makes you nervous because you are not comfortable with what you do and you find it too risky it is time to move on to something that is better suited to your personality and strengths. It can be easy to take the first job that comes your way when the bills are due but if your personality clashes whit the job description it will do you a lot of good to find a job that is the right for you.

Hello, my bucket list friends! In my last blog post I wrote about enjoying Christmas time and how there was more fun to come. I’m happy to report that the Christmastime fun has been going strong and I have some fun things to tell you about! I also told you about the test that I was getting ready to take, Well I have taken it and I have an update on that as well. So, hold on tight and get ready for an update!
More Christmastime joys
The joy of Christmastime keeps on coming! My mom and I got to go to an awesome Christmas Rock concert by the band December people. It was a very fun night I hope I get to go see them again sometime! I got to celebrate the season with one of my work families at a very yummy Italian restaurant I had a fun time eating and laughing with all the wonderful people I work with! There was also another wonderful party with my other work family complete with a White elephant game I ended up with a huge umbrella and two pairs of gloves! On December 23rd, I went shopping at the Goodwill and I got a huge haul! I found so many awesome things all at great prices. That evening went to Gilroy gardens for the first time. I really enjoyed the special holiday dinner. The potatoes and apple crisp tasted so good! The rides were also lots of fun I the banana split ride, the carousel and the train were some of my favorites and I was able to buy a beautiful snow globe to add to my collection. To top it all off I ran into one of my friends from childhood it was great to see him. The whole park was beautiful the decorations were so pretty, and the trees are breath taking. If you ever get the chance I highly recommend it Christmas eve and Christmas day where also great but the deserve their own blog post
The Rollercoaster ride of life
Alright I’m just going to say it right now, I failed the MBLEX, but that is not going to stop me from becoming a massage therapist. I’m going to take it again until I passed. Some dreams take more time to accomplish then others. I’m not going to lie I was very upset that I did not pass, and I cried a lot in the car but I know I can pass it just say tuned my friends because as low as I felt that day I know that things are looking up for me and I can’t wait to start working as a massage therapist! Keep dreaming and rock on – Christina Epperly
