#250: Complete an Escape Room

Bucket List item #250: Complete an Escape Room

I attempted to escape from my first escape room this past August. I took my roommate on her birthday. I knew she’d enjoy it, but it was also really a gift to myself because I had been wanting to try an escape room for a very long time. Continue reading “#250: Complete an Escape Room”


#41 Go on a Cruise

Bucket List item #41: Go on a Cruise

Way back… in the winter of 2012… I think, 3 of my family members and I embarked on a 4 day cruise leaving out of Miami. It was a Carnival cruise I believe and was scheduled to have one stop in Cozumel, Mexico. It would be my first time on a cruise and my first time in Mexico, so I was extremely excited. I vaguely remember watching Titanic a few weeks before the trip, but my sister refused to watch it with me. That’s my sense of humor, I suppose.  Continue reading “#41 Go on a Cruise”

Hawaiian Vacation: Bucket List

Last year right after Christmas, my entire family took a trip to Hawaii. With me moving soon and my brothers now in college, it was likely the last family vacation we’d get to have. But no worries, we went out with a bang. We stopped in Oahu, Kauai, and Maui. We were there almost two weeks, so I made sure to pack in as many of my bucket list items as possible… because who knows if I’ll ever be back to Hawaii.

How To: Make a 15 Year Plan in 10 Easy Steps

Five year plans are easy. It’s fairly simple to make concrete goals for one or two years down the road, then build on those to create a picture of where you’d like to be in five years. Looking 15 years down the road, however, is a bit daunting. It’s fuzzy and unpredictable and has very little in common with today. Or does it? What are the benefits of even looking that far ahead?

#136: Take a Self Defense Class

Bucket List item #136: Take a Self Defense Class

Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures from this class because I took it during lunch at work. It was offered through Women4Women and was held in our work auditorium. I was a bit apprehensive about taking the class, knowing that some of my coworkers might see me making a fool of myself. Still, it was on my bucket list, so I decided to suck it up and just go for it. Continue reading “#136: Take a Self Defense Class”

Half-Written Blog Posts

Here’s a short post, an update on how this is all going. I had a good flow going with posting twice a week, but now I find myself in a bit of a standstill. I currently have 7 half-finished blog posts in my drafts folder, yet I find myself I’m starting this one. I haven’t posted in almost two weeks and I’ve been feeling all guilty about it. I made a commitment to myself to stay on track and recently, it’s been very difficult to motivate myself to finish anything. I’m surprised this one is even making it out today.

Hiking a 14er

Bucket List item #85: Stand on top of a mountain

Since moving to Colorado, I have hiked up a few mountains: Flagstaff Mountain (6,983′), Green Mountain (8,150′), Stanley Mountain (12,521′), and Mount Flora (13,146′). I could have counted any of these to cross off my bucket list item, but I wanted to wait until I had hiked my first 14er. Well, I finally did. My roommate and I hiked Mount Bierstadt, whose peak sits at an elevation of 14,065 feet.  Continue reading “Hiking a 14er”
