some more buckets

10:17 AM

Why did I get on that tangent yesterday?

Oh right. My bucket list. I was looking at it. And I realized that I've accomplished a lot of noteworthy things in two years. I crossed stuff off. Go ahead. Hate away. Call me pretentious while I talk about how awesome my life is. Whatever, guys. You all should know by now that despite the cool things I do and the awesome things that happen to me sometimes - I really don't have it all together, and my life is a mess, too. So don't get jealous. You don't really want to be me. I'm up front with the stuff I do wrong so I'll be up front with the stuff I do right, too. OKAY.


What happens when you have a really bad day and you fail a test (Tuesday) is you start grasping for anything that'll make you feel better about yourself. And this helped. So here's a look back on 2 years and Summer 2014. Most of these were on my list and I was able to cross them off. A few weren't, but they were nonetheless bucket list worthy.



Visit every continent - I WENT TO ASIA. Just 4 more continents to go...
These are my Asian-y pics. Hello Kitty to boot.

Go on a Mission - this was big one. I did that thing. THAT MISSION THING
+Teach someone about the gospel 
+Learn Japanese 
+Learn origami - I spent a sad amount of time making origami during language study on the mish. And I spent a lot of money buying every single origami-making book at the dollar store EVER.
+Learn to use chop sticks LIKE A BOSS

+Ride a bike with no hands. Only every day. 
+Touch my toes YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW HUGE THIS IS

I'm pretty sure I wrote home about my 22nd birthday bucket-list happenings here. Just skip to the end and look at pics, the rest is boring.




Also not-mission stuff...



Beat a video game. Thanks to doryo sama. I beat it. I beat the game. Under the tutelage of one great Julie Clingo. But I BEAT THAT GAME SO HARD AND I DIDN'T CUSS THAT MANY TIMES TO DO IT.


Do a session in the Salt Lake Temple
Slash go to all of the temples in Utah. Or something. I went to Bountiful & Timpanogos this summer too. Supes righteous.


Buy a car - and her name was Billie Jean.

Go to Las Vegas
We went to a Martial Arts Super Show as a Karate school. 
So much boss-ness.
So much Vegas-ness.


See a Beatle. I STILL AM FREAKING OUT THAT I SHARED AIR SPACE WITH PAUL MCCARTNEY.
HE SANG BLACKBIRD
I NAH-NAH-NAH-d TO HEY JUDE WITH HIM


 Go to Goblin Valley - #GALAXY QUEST


...and last night I crossed off Tell a story at The Porch.

Life is all right sometimes. Here's to hoping that Fall and Winter bring some more bucket-list worthy adventures.

  2. I put a little thing on Facebook - but I also didn't make a big deal about it. :) Our friendship is still awesome even if we need to see each other more.
