The Bucket List

For my stress management class I had to read a book that would promote anti-stressful living. I read this book all about setting goals and accomplishing them. So I've created a new and fully improved Bucket List!!! After I saw the movie I made a really weak bucket list that mostly had stupid things on it. But this book made my list more real and . . . cool haha. So I am going to try and document it when I accomplish things on this list. So, a few weeks ago I accomplished one thing on that list: I . . . MADE A CAKE FROM SCRATCH!
Yes, I created that white thing. My mom wasn't even looking over my shoulder the whole time. I only asked her where the vanilla was and the recipe for the delicious frosting. The frosting was the best part. The cake actually was a little burned but it all got eaten within two days so my family must have liked it enough to eat all of it haha. But the best part was that I made it all by myself!!!
Now you may be asking, what else is on this bucket list of yours Maurie? Well, I'll tell you some of the other things on the list (in no particular order).
  • See the Northern Lights (I see them on TV but I just can't believe it, I want to see them for myself)
  • Go the Wizarding World in Florida
  • Graduate from college (three weeks and that'll be checked off)
  • Go skydiving or bungee jumping-either one
  • Plant something and help it grow
  • Learn to ballroom dance
  • Run a 5K
  • Invent a board game
  • Ride in a hot air balloon
  • Milk a cow
  • Go to Lake Powell
  • Fly a kite (I've done this before but I want to do it again)
  • Go to a spa
  • Donate blood
  • Join a book club
  • Go paintballing
  • Make bread from scratch

If anyone has any other suggestions, or if you know of a way I could accomplish one of these goals, or if you want to be with me when I check off one of these things, let me know! Let's start living!!!
