I’ve been thinking about this goal ever since I saw it on, if I remember correctly, perfectbucketlist.tumblr.com It sounds like a pretty cool goal to do, and I’ve always wanted to know what I’d look like as a blonde ;D 11 months ago
How I did it: About a month ago, I finally decided on my next piercing! I was between a nose and a navel piercing, but I ended up deciding to get the nose first because I go to the gym in the winter and that would seriously aggravate the navel one, turns out they're more difficult healers than I thought.
Me and my cousin George have been dreaming of visiting New York for years now, I can’t even remember when and why we started. I think it’s because we love the TV series F.R.I.E.N.D.S. far too much, but also because New York is a way too fabulous city.
Our visit will have to wait at the very least 4 years, since George is 15 and he will need to be at least 19, not in order to be an adult, but in order for him to be done with his university entrance exams and his “getting used to” university life.
Our trip will also include visits to Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, and a hot air balloon trip in Napa Valley. 11 months ago
I want to visit Venice anyway because it seems like a gorgeous city. The fact that my favourite One Piece arc took place in a city that is the spitting image of Venice is just a bonus! 11 months ago
At a part of Greece, I think they have an event/ tradition when people let go of floating lanterns. I’m not sure, though. 11 months ago
I had my caricature drawn again when I went to Cirque du Soleil, you could have your caricature done as a souvenir. However, I can’t consider this goal done because I want to get it done by a STREET artist. 11 months ago
How I did it: I went to see Cirque du Soleil's "Dralion" with my little cousin George.
Thank you!! Thankfully I didn’t experience the storm much, all was well :D
How I did it: Again, this was in my recent trip to London. Me and my friend decided to take part in the history of the road, so we went! The road was very easy to find, just take a right turn when exiting St. John's Wood station and keep going. You'll see it eventually, there are bound to be tourists there all day anyway, plus when I went there were two volunteers in bright yellow jackets that took your picture professionally for the site Me on Abbey Road.com.
How I did it: So, during my first night in London, my friend told me that she had booked us tickets for a party, and the theme of the party hadn't been announced at the time she booked them. Then, the same night, we found out that the theme was a glow/ rave/ neon party, so I was more than thrilled!
How I did it: I had gotten the first helix almost seven months ago, on the 2nd of April, at Crossover Tattoo studio in Patra, Greece. The piercer was awesome, highly recommend it.
I tried to go there for my second helix a while ago, but the shop was closed :(
I got the second helix today, the 28th of October, at Cold Steel in Camden, London. The dude insisted that a ring is better to start with when it's not, and I did eventually get him to do it with a barbell. (My friend got her tragus done before me with a ring, because "the piercer knows best")
The second helix was less painful than the first. Perhaps because I knew what to expect?
All in all, I feel really awesome right now :D Read how I did it… 12 months ago
How I did it: Since I came to London, I just HAD to visit Highgate. Highgate is a major point when it comes to two of my top favourite books, "The Graveyard Book" (the graveyard in the book was inspired by Highgate) and "Her Fearful Symmetry" (the whole plot is right next to Highgate, and there are several descriptions of tours etc.)
Since the West Cemetery can only be accesed via tour, if we visited we would go to both sides, so the first thing that we had to check was the tours. (More about this below, on "Lessons and tips")
In the end, we arrived in Highgate just fine, if you know the tube (and my friend does) it is super easy to arrive there. The neighbourhood is gorgeous and the walk across Waterlow park to reach it is lovely. (A pug licked my leg, too, so you may say it's a friendly park)
The cemetery itself is worth every penny you pay for the entrance fee. Both sides are equally gorgeous, but the West side is probably more visually stunning, with the Egyptian Avenue, Circle of Lebanon, that 300 year old tree, and Nero the lion. The tour guide gives a lot of info that may not seem interesting at first, but it is. (Or, well, it was for me because I'm a history geek)
Anyway, it was just worth it. I doubt I'll be able to go again, or I'll see anything like it again, so I'm very happy I went. Read how I did it… 12 months ago
How I did it: I've only been in London for about 2 hours, and it's already AWESOME. And no, I'm not exaggerating.
I have recently decided that navel piercings look cool. They are also very discreet, people rarely ever see me without a shirt, and people rarely ever walk out with no shirts on.
My best friend hates navel piercings with a passion, and has ordered me to not get one done because “it will not suit me” I guess she’ll be pretty mad at me then. 12 months ago
Highgate Cemetery is a very important destination for me because:
A) My number 3 favourite book, Audrey Niffenegger’s “Her Fearful Symmetry” has a lot to do with Highgate Cemetery, since the twin protagonists move to a house right next to it.
B) In my number 2 favourite book, Neil Gaiman’s “The Graveyard Book”, Neil Gaiman has said that the graveyard where the whole plot unfolds was inspired by Highgate Cemetery.
So I must visit it. This is important. 12 months ago
