The Bucket List

Day 20: 10 things on your bucket list

1. Take a cruise around the world. They’re like over $10k and last about 144 days. Around the motherfucking world.

2. Visit the great pyramids at Giza.

3. Take a year to travel Europe.

4. Show at London/Paris/Milan (fashion).

5. Have books written about me…or my legacy.

6. Be famous for my work.

7. Donate massive amounts of money to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and organizations such as No Kid Hungry.

8. Have a house with a maze garden in the backyard and life-size chess set.

9. Publish my poetry…someday.

10. Fit into a goddamn size 6.

P.S. SHOPPING PRO TIP:
If you ever find an item of clothing that’s mildly damaged – example, torn at the seams, scuff mark somewhere, or anything that’s fixable – BUY IT. You will most likely get a discount for the imperfections. Today I bought a pair of pajama pants at Old Navy for half price because there was a big hole at the seam where the serger didn’t catch the fabric. SCORE.

Day 18: 10 favorite sports or hobbies

1. Swimming. I used to be scared of swimming, but then I convinced my parents to buy the house we’re in because it had a pool. And I taught myself how to swim.

2. Handball. I haven’t played handball in a long time, but it’s such a fun team sport.

3. Gold Rush. This is a camp game that always makes everyone I know excited. It’s super fun when I have like 200 people playing…as we did in 6th grade camp.

4. Incline walking. Okay, listen. My mom and I signed up at LA Fitness in August and I’ve quite enjoyed getting used to treadmills. I really love treadmills that have the incline feature. Today I went to 7.0 incline. It was wonderful.

5. Tennis. I love to both play and watch this sport. Not only do I enjoy the grunting that occurs during tennis, but I am a huge culprit of it. I barely notice it while I’m playing, actually. And when I do, I’m like damn – those are some atrocious sounds coming out of me! BUT THEY’RE ENTIRELY NECESSARY.

6. Archery. Another favorite play & watch sport. I haven’t done archery in a long time, but I remember being relatively good at it. I’ve also considered buying a bow & arrow and target to practice in my backyard. Don’t judge me.

7. Zumba. All I have to say is that shit is awesome.

8. Weight-lifting. Okay, listen. Going to the gym has made me understand why douchers stand in front of the mirror when they lift weights. First of all, the mirrors are there to make the gym look bigger and to help you watch your form as your lift weights. They’re also there so that douchbags can watch themselves lift 105 lbs in each hand and feel good about themselves for doing it 3 times in a row. I think I’m becoming one of these people, you guys. I kind of genuinely enjoy watching my biceps, in particular, work.

9.  Sleeping. That’s right. I’m counting this as a hobby. I love sleeping. I love dreaming. I wish I went to bed earlier and didn’t have so much shit to do so I could sleep more. That’d be fantastic.

10. Baking/cooking. This could be a sport. Sometimes I get really good exercise from baking/cooking from all the running around and cleaning I do.

Professions.

Day 17: 10 things you wanted to be growing up

1. An artist. I’ve always wanted to be an artist. I consider myself first and foremost, an artist.

2. A singer. I’m gifted with several artistic talents. Singing is one of them. I used to be really into wanting to be a singer.

3. An astronaut. Once upon a time, before I found out about the training and vaccinations astronauts had to go through, I deeply wanted to be one.

4. An astronomer. I’ve always been fascinated by astronomy and looking at the stars. I know more constellations than the average person. I still think astronomy is cool.

5. A starving artist bum in the streets of Paris. In high school, there was a period of time when I was in that classic romantic phase where all I wanted was ars gratia artis – art for art’s sake. And I wanted to do it in Paris.

6. A poet/writer. I’m also pretty well versed in comparison to a lot of people I know in my writing skills. And I like writing, in case you hadn’t noticed over the past year.

7. A fashion designer. Ambition started in 6th grade, really. And here I am, studying it.

8. A photographer. Deviantart really turned me on to photography. I remember seeing pictures and thinking I want to be that good and better. And I’m doing that.

9. A teacher. Wasn’t really a full on ambition. More of a passing thought.

10. A creative director. For a short while I was convinced I should be creative director. In a way, what I want to do is kind of the same thing.

I Love Music :D
