Don’t Stop Till You Drop!

My gmail girls and I got to emailing about what we wanted to do before we die. Some of us dream a lot bigger and brighter than others (shout out to Nadine!) but we all agreed that there are a lot of things we would like to accomplish before we leave this Earth. Here’s my list:
Bucket List
1. Purchase a town home or starter home.
2. Adopt a child.
3. Work with a dance troupe like Alvin Ailey.
4. Visit every state in America (43 more states to go).
5. Learn to play the violin.
6. Pay off my debt.
7. Learn to speak French, Spanish and Italian and maybe German.
8. Get a feature spot on HGTV just to shadow someone.
9. Have Sabrina Soto stage my parents home or Candice Olson or David Bromstad to redesign it.
10. Pay off my parents mortgage.
11. Marry…or not.
12. Live and work in Africa with disadvantaged young women.
13. Gain weight.
14. Visit Haiti and slap Rene Preval.
15. Get my skin to be one skin tone.
16. Take voice lessons.
17. Kiss a white and hispanic man.
18. Have a closet dedicated solely to shoes.
19. Come to terms with my fear of animals in some way.
20. Study Buddhism and visit Buddhist temples in Asia.

This is not a pretend list. I really want to do these things! Don’t laugh.

Ok….maybe I don’t want to slap Rene Preval.

  1. 43 more states to go? LOL! I just need to get to the west coast. I was forced to play the violin, I don’t look at it the same. Can you take voice lessons even if there is not chance in hell that they can help you sound good? I always wished I could sing but I know no one would be able to stand me. I would be that girl that just sang ALL the time.

  2. Love it!!! I’m gonna tag along on some of these trips especially the Buddhist temple in Asia..theres the 10,000 one in Hong Kong that WE HAVE to go to! Have a closet dedicated to shoes *Heaven* Live and work in Africa….girl..I got you.

  3. 1. I had voice lessons when I was younger … and now I’m such a music critic :-/
    2. The traveling is such an awesome thing. I wish I had the money for it cause I love to travel.
    3. I’m mad you have “gain weight” on your bucket list. LOL!! I understand your struggle though (ive been trying to gain 10 pounds for the past 8 months) so i think its more a matter of making sure you gain the correct weight. Muscle weighs more than fat (and make your body look super sexy) so exericse could be your best bet..
    4. I have enough shoes to fill a closet… i just need by a townhome to get that closet (thats my goal for 2011).

    You’ve inspired me. I’m gonna make my bucket list and work towards it 🙂
