Hello , my bucket list friends as some of you may know I graduated from massage school back in October . (You can read about it here ) Even after finishing an intense one year program I still had a big hoop to jump through before I could officially become a massage therapist . I had to pass an exam know as the MBLEX. I first took the test back in December , I was unable to pass the first time and I was very upset about it . I cried a lot that day but I moved on from that and stepped up my studying and I took the test this past saturday and I passed it ! I’m so happy to be done with that test ! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off me. I can’t wait to start working as massage therapist ! After I finish some more paper work I will be able to have two amazing careers ! I’m so proud of myself and I feel so loved from my family and friends ! Thank you all for you messages of congratuations !
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 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
