I’m certain that when 2021 comes to a close and I’m reflecting on my favorite goals of the year, this one will reign supreme. When I decided to methodically go through our records, I had no idea how time consuming but also interesting (maybe obsessive) the experience would become. I had more of a clean-it-out-Marie-Kondo project in mind, but now you can hand me a … Continue reading #5 – Catalog Our Record Collection. Check*
About a month ago I embarked on my goal of cataloging our records (catch the first post here) and I’ve been diligently working through our entire collection. After a day of teaching online all day, the last thing I want to do is sit still or look at a screen, so methodically cataloging our records has been an interesting and interactive project that harkens back … Continue reading Cataloging Our Records: C – S
One of my more unique goals this year is to catalog our entire vinyl record collection. Between the two of us, we’ve been casually collecting records for 25 (maybe even 30) years and while our albums are actually well alphabetized, we’re not really clear on what we own after decades of hunting through flea market bins. This is not a pressing goal, and frankly our … Continue reading Cataloging the Records: A-B
I haven’t had much to blog about yet this year (as each days just runs monotonously into the next) but that does not mean I haven’t been working on my 2021 bucket list. First off, I got my lips tattooed, but that post will be coming later this week. In the meantime, many of my goals are more of a long-haul, grind it out kind … Continue reading Winter Progress Update
I love a good buffet. But I’ve also been told by many that my buffet choices are laughably wrong. I don’t run for sexy items like fried chicken or ribs or made-to-order belgian waffles — what I really want is a huge iceberg salad, some version of sautéed vegetables, shrimp cocktail, and a bunch of cheese cubes. In Vegas, I’ve noticed that chia pudding is … Continue reading #7 – Learn how to make chia pudding. Check.
Here we go again. Amidst a worldwide pandemic and a government meltdown, I’m somehow creating a bucket list for 2021. Publishing a “fun times” bucket list right now feels challenging on multiple levels, namely that a lot of people are suffering and I don’t want to diminish the reality of what’s happening out there in the world while I’m mostly just trying to entertain myself. … Continue reading My Official 2021 Bucket List
Ohhhhh 2020, we have so many feelings about you. I’ve never watched so much tv or eaten so many Oreos. What a year. Yet, my bucket list was quite robust (even if I wasn’t in the mood to blog about it very much). In January, I published my FIRST 2020 Bucket List: The plan was to travel all over the place and ring in my … Continue reading My 2020 Bucket List in Review
As I begin to write this post, I realize that the amount of goals I set for 2020 is nearly double what I have set every previous year, and having now checked off 29 goals during 2020 makes it the biggest year ever. Go figure. I didn’t get to travel to Portugal and see a serial killer’s preserved head on display or play craps in … Continue reading French Cooking & Learning Piano. Check.
In case you can’t tell, I don’t blog anymore.* Nonetheless, I have resurrected myself to officially cross off a flurry of 2020 bucket list items (yes, it’s still very possible to have a bucket list in 2020). Yes, I’m crafting my 2021 bucket list but before I can focus on that, I’ve got to get my head back in the game and knock out my … Continue reading The last stretch of 2020
