Hello, my bucket list friends I have what I like to call a busy brain. I’m pretty much always thinking ten miles a minute. Random ideas are always popping into my head. Well recently I’ve been thinking about what life would be like if animals could talk. Let me give you some background on this. I have a 21 year old cat named Blanca she is a very sweet and happy cat but she does have kidney disease and because of that we have to give her fluids using a needle and as you can probably guess she does not like this at all. I wish so much that I could tell her why we are doing this and how much it helps her. I wish she could understand that we are caring for her and helping her to be healthier. Then one night I noticed one of my other cats Sherry itching because of fleas so of course I put flea medicine on her and right away she ran away from me it was like she was scared of me. Once again I wish she could understand that I was helping her. I feel like some simple communication would solve a lot of the problems that we have when it comes to our animal friends. We could tell the dogs that the mail man is harmless, we could ask the birds not to poop on our cars and we could listen to their endless stories of everything they observe in a day. I think the point of all my random thoughts is this, communication is an important and valuable tool and while we may not be able to talk to the animals we encounter every day we can talk to other people. Unfortunately we often forget that we have that ability, we sometimes think that by communicating our feelings we are being difficult or dramatic. I do wish animals could tell people how they are feeling and what they need but I also wish that we would use communication more often then we do. I wish people would be quicker to express themselves instead of hiding what they really feel. Now, I’m not saying that people should act out in fits of anger or tell their struggles to everyone they meet no matter how much it hurts. What I’m saying is this we need to take more advantage of this important tool that we have. Feeling left out in your group of friends ? Tell Them how you feel. Struggling with the amount of work or homework you have ? Talk to a coworker ,your boss , classmate or teacher. Some people may think that being open and honest with your feelings makes you week but the truth is it’s one of the smartest things a person can do. by speaking up you may discover that it can help you to solve problems , lead you to people who can assist you with things you may be struggling with, make good relationships better and end relationships that are not healthy and maybe it will make you feel more confident. So you may not be able to tell your dog that its not necessary to bark every time a car goes by or ask your fish what decorations they would like to have in their tank but you can tell your friends that your thankful for them, you can tell everyone that asks that you haven’t decided on a career choice yet and you can even ask others if they have anything bottled up inside that they would like to share. Next time you have something you need to get of your chest remember be respectful , be honest and be a communicator! PS. I wish I could nicely ask my cat to move over on the couch so I can lay down!

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 ! So I really wanted to write a blog post but I couldn’t really think of anything to write about so I’m just going to write about whatever random thoughts are in my head ! Here we go !
The rain makes sleepy and other random thoughts
The rain makes me sleepy – I know we need the rain but it does affect my mood . It makes me want to stay in bed all day . It also makes me grumpy because I can’t stay in bed all day and I have to be out it in . It also makes me grumpy when it makes me change my plans . I guess I don’t have a very good relationship with rain.
I wonder if my cat knows he’s hurting me when he attacks my foot
My cat Cooper likes to sleep in my bed he also likes to attack my foot when it moves when he is on my bed . I yell at him every time he does it but I wonder if he even knows that it’s my foot he is grabbing. If he does know that it is my foot does he know that it hurts me ? So many questions and not enough answers for this random thought.
Will I ever get to live my dream of being on TV
I’ve wanted to be on TV for a very long time . Even if it was just walking past a news camera but it’s never happened . It is something that I have always day dreamed about but I know it’s so many other’s dream too . So I worry that it will never become a reality but I’ve made so many of my other dreams come true so why not this one ? I should probably stop doubting myself and take another trip down to LA and see what I can do ! I think I would be great on a game show .
Starbucks coffee is great on any day but especially rainy ones – I’m glad I got out of the house today and got some tasty coffee from Starbucks . I love it even in the summer but there is just something perfect about having coffee on a rainy gloomy day .
It was to rainy to walk but I still got my steps in – My mom and I were going to go walking today but with the rain switching on and off so fast, We knew that we would probably get caught in the rain and get soaking wet ! So that didn’t happen but I was still able get my steps for the day in !
I hope you enjoyed my random thoughts !
Rock on ! – Christina Epperly
