My Bucket List

A "Bucket List" is basically a list of things you want to do before you "kick the bucket". I would like to hope that everybody has one of these lists. I have been thinking about this a lot lately, and I have yet to come up with a definite list, but I thought I would share my progress with you so far...

1. To live in an apartment with a great view - Okay so this is #1, but that doesn't make it top priority or anything, in fact, this is a safe one because really anybody can live in an apartment with a great view if they really wanted to. This is just top of my list because it has been on my mind a lot these past few weeks after coming to the realization that our lives are about to change. The fact of the matter is, I have always wanted to live in an apartment. Not so much after I had a baby, I always wanted my children to have their own yard, but things change, maybe it won't be so bad at this point in our lives after all...our fingers are crossed. R. and I lived in an upper apartment of a duplex once, but that totally doesn't count because the only view we had from there was the crackheads passed out on our front lawn and the big gay bus.

2. To be honestly happy - Even if only for a little while. I just forget what it's like to be truly happy anymore. I have seriously forgotten and I would like to have a little taste of that again. I know that sounds stupid and corny, but I just want that feeling back. I'm tired of being a crab.

3. To learn how to swim - Not competitively or anything, I'm talking about your basic swim (you know, not doing the doggy paddle). I could totally see myself doing laps at the Y. Preferably not at the same time as the old man who wears the white Speedos...that was awkward.

4. To go on vacation - Next time we're going tropical!

5. To work at Disneyland - I went on a job interview there last week...unfortunately it didn't turn out so well:

6. To have more friends - I'm kind of a loner. I like to be alone, but I want to change that! I kind of stopped hanging out with people. I mean I do have friends, but I never initiate actually hanging out with friends. If they ask me, great, but you must know that I am thinking of ways to get out of doing things in my mind. Ever since R. died I just feel selfish hanging out with people because I feel like a Debbie Downer. This would also be good because I want to have a pretty rockin' funeral....and nobody who sobs like a whale at funerals (aka - me) will not be allowed in.

7. To win a major reward - You know, something like a trip, a big screen TV, a bowling alley or a leg lamp!

8. To be on a jury - This has been on my "to do" list for a loooong time. Jury duty is such a mystery to me. How does one get on a jury? Why does everybody moan and groan when they get picked? Just once I want to be picked to go on a jury and see what all the hype is about. When I hear about my friends getting picked not once - but two, some even three times to go on a jury it makes me insanely jealous. I mean I'm all about staying in a hotel and watching a real trial. I feel like me as a 9 year old in grade know the kid who always got picked last? That was totally me! Here is a little video I made to show you why I'm probably never picked for jury duty:

9. To just "get" photography - Right now I feel like there is something I am missing. Maybe it's the fact that I haven't touched my camera in a couple weeks now, but there is something not right with the way I take pictures. I want to be able to pick up my camera, click click and have awesome pictures. Is that too much to ask?

Hello..this is my blog. I bought this fancy theme and I don't know what to write here just yet. Maybe one day remind me I have to write something inspiring here?


  1. I love that jury duty video. Funny. Your photos are always wonderful. I have the same issue, I can take pics until the cows come home and not find a decent one in the bunch.
