Summer Bucket-List

It seems lately, everyone's been making bucket lists. I'm not a big planner, so I can't imagine making a life-long list of things I'd like to do, before I kick-the-bucket. That seems way too ambitious! Instead, I'm starting small and making a Summer Bucket-List.

It's nothing crazy. I'm not planning to back-pack around Europe, climb the Alps, go scuba-diving or save lives, not that I wouldn't like to do those things! But, I'm starting with the things I think I can realistically do and achieve right away, in hopes that writing them down for anyone to see will make me more likely to accomplish them!

1. Get Healthier
~Eat more of the good stuff (fruits and veggies) and less of the bad stuff (processed and fast food).
~Exercise more, i.e. more than once a week

2. Spend More Time Outdoors
    ...and less time in front of the T.V.!

3. Go to at Least One Rockin' Concert

4. Finish Reading at Least 2 Books
I know this sounds easy, but I am a really slow reader! I'll probably try to tackle the Divergent    series. Literary Snobs, don't judge me!

5. Do Something Outside my Comfort Zone
~Something that scares me...either physically or socially/psychologically
~Ideas: zipline tour, whitewater rafting (with some class 4 and 5 rapids), perform at an open-mic night

6. Do Something Memorable
    A trip, fun event or just something out of the ordinary

7. Do Something Meaningful
    Volunteer or do something that makes a difference

I plan on sharing my progress and struggles as I try to tackle these throughout the summer. I may have some changes to make, or things to add along the way. I encourage you to make your own and share with friends and family, whom can help you accomplish your goals.
