As both of these goals will be painfully boring to anyone reading, I’ll just merge them into one painfully boring (albeit short!) blog post. Why did I add “grow a venus fly trap” to my list this year? Honestly, I have no idea. Must have been one of those passing ideas that I wrote down and now I’m committed. Luckily, I knew this would be … Continue reading #6 – Grow a venus fly trap, & #12 – Learn to replace a light fixture. Check.
A few months ago, I wrote a post about being midway through a Master Class called The Art of Performance led by none other than Usher (My Next Presentation) with the intention of working on my professional presentation skills. Although I could have blasted through the 16 lessons, I chose to take my time and look for opportunities to authentically practice the techniques throughout the summer. … Continue reading #9 – Take a Master Class. Check one two.
Technically this isn’t on my bucket list for 2019, but that’s only because it wasn’t a thing six months ago. As I am currently presenting at a conference in Vegas, I had to sneak a couple precious hours to myself to tour the brand new Haus of Gaga. Question: What is the Haus of Gaga? Answer: The choicest curation of historically relevant Lady Gaga costume and fashion … Continue reading Visit Haus of Gaga in Vegas. Check!
Listen guys, I knew this would probably be an easy goal. One of those ones that gave me a quick win while I’m muddling through bigger things (oh sayyyy writing a book). But I had no idea just how easy making my very own salt scrub would be – in fact, it barely deserves a blog post. What inspired this goal was my $25/month salt scrub … Continue reading #18 – Learn to make a salt scrub. Check.
On December 29th, 2017, I buried a time capsule in the forest with some help from my friend David (read about it here). I acknowledge that unburying a time capsule a year and a half later seems like a short period of time, but inside were my and my friend, Kerrie’s, initial theories on how Game of Thrones would end (as I was rereading the book … Continue reading #7 – Dig up a time capsule. Check.
I typically try to post a full round up of the best and worst of the cities we visit (mostly so that I can remember the next time we visit). After spending 11 days in Italy, Rome is no exception. WE DID IT ALL. In fact, everyday I tried to retrace our route on Google Maps. We walked over ten miles almost everyday, and took … Continue reading Best (and Worst) of Rome
I can’t believe it’s April and I’m only just checking off my first bucket list item of 2019. I’m in the middle of several bigger-picture items, but I need to get with it! While planning our Spring Break trip to Italy, I had initially made a goal to ride a vespa with visions of a Gwen Stefani Cool video moment. But once we got there, it became immediately … Continue reading #11 – Visit the Capuchin Crypt in Rome. Check.
