Summer 2013 Bucket List (read all 4 entries…)
Recently Completed

Play catch with my dad and little brother- It was nice to have some quality time with just the three of us in the backyard.
Blow bubbles- A little girl at the camp I was volunteering at wanted to play with the bubbles, so I blew them for her. (:
Waterfight- In my defense, my brother started it.
Swim- The camp I was at was right by a lake. It was hot, the water was cold. It was lovely.
Art project- With my best friend leaving for college, I made her an altered book to remember me by.
Watercolor- A couple of pages in the book I made had watercolor paintings on them.
Hand print art- Again in the book, I used hand prints to make angel wings.
Eat snocones- My little sister has a snocone making machine, and my brother decided to make some for all of us.
Go to a baseball game- My town has its own minor league baseball team, and it’s always fun to spend some time there with my family.
Eat ice cold watermelon outside on a hot day- One of the many things we had to snack on at camp.
Build a fire and make s’mores- Because they taste even better when you’re camping under the stars.
Go on a boat ride- Does white water rafting count?
Turn off the TV for a day- Much easier when you’re in the woods and there’s no TV to turn on.
Write a HAPPY poem- Not my best work, but I wrote it.
Make good art- I am really proud of my art project. :)

Wish wren a joyous birthday on August 24...Happy Birthday, wren!!!
Joyeux anniversaire!

Happy birthday, Wren! I hope it’s filled with cake, friends, and happiness.

learn to shoot (read all 2 entries…)
The local firing range...

...had a “youth” day with a a ton of different high powered weapons. After shooting an M-16, Thompson Sub Atomatic, black powder rifles, a Gatling gun, and a .50 caliber, I think I can safely say I know how to shoot (although I can’t do it well.)

Recently completed:

Library- My little sister is a big reader, and while I’ve been a little busy to read too much, she’s kept us going to the library religiously this summer.
Breakfast for Dinner- In an effort to make sure I can survive on my own, I have been cooking dinner every Wednesday and Friday nights. So this past Wednesday, I made a giant breakfast, with pancakes, sausage, toast, scrambled eggs and orange juice.
Stargaze- A friend of mine spent the night recently, and around midnight we went out to the hot tub in my backyard. From there, we watched the stars.
Eat snow cones- I don’t particularly like snow cones, so this wasn’t my favorite one on the list. But my little brother made me one, and…well…How could I refuse?
Origami- I folded some more paper cranes. I’m getting closer to my goal of 1,000!
Fireworks- Happy 4th of July!

Summer 2013 Bucket List (read all 4 entries…)

Parade- A local town was having it’s annual celebration, and, just like every year, it kicked off with a parade.
Ride bikes- While my little brother and sister were participating in an arts and crafts project at the library, my father and I rode bikes around the river and downtown.
Make homemade cookies- My little sister and I made chocolate chip and walnut cookies, which are, if I do say so myself, quite delicious.
Go to a baseball game- My home team lost, but it was a close game right down to the last inning. A ton of near impossible plays were made, and it was a great game, especially for just a minor league team.

December Bootcamp 2012: Embodying My Best Self (read all 4 entries…)
Evaluation of 12/26

-Finish December themed goals on my Winter bucket list Didn’t really do anything on this one…
-Make a to-do list each day (and actually follow it) I actually made a to-do list! And semi-followed it.
-Exercise each day I actually exercised. A lot (for me). So I feel kind of proud.
-Get enough sleep (not necessarily eight hours) And I was actually well rested. I woke up early, and later fell back asleep. It was nice.
-Leave just enough time to be bored to get creative again I was bored enough to see potential in a broken tea cup. So.
-Eat reasonably healthy This one…did not go so well.
