Realistic Checklist – 2019

It’s going to be a shorter post but its a great post. A little off my writing/book theme, but you know. My usual routine will return. So the end of the year is near, so I decided to give you a checklist of all the things I plan on doing the year of 2019. 

  1. Donate Blood. I have been avoiding doing this for the longest time. 
  2.  Go to a concert whether it be Lauren Daigle or King and Country.
  3. Travel. I will really be traveling to local cities and have adventures there. If I am lucky, maybe places that are up to seven hours to drive from home. I am basically broke bookworm/writer and visiting Europe is the last thing I need to do to break the bank. 🙂
  4. Do something spontaneous like ziplining or skydiving.
  5. Volunteer whether it be at a local animal center, library, etc.
  6. Take a self-defense class.
  7. Expand my wardrobe. Transform to that edgy boho style. 

Only seven things, why? I will actually do them, shockingly enough. I made a resolution of this year and failed greatly. I have learned from that lesson. Thanks for reading.

The plague of wanderlust

Have you experienced that great urge to travel? Imagining your toes between the sands of a foreign beach? Ziplining through the forbidden jungle? I know I can’t be the only one. The only problem is that you are broke. Or have no idea where to begin? Me, too.

Since I have no idea where to begin. Let me explain. One of my dreams is to become a world traveler. A very unrealistic dream, I know. Even a travel blogger would be nice but still clueless about what God’s plan for me is; I just had to be content with what I have right in front of me.

^ .^ this picture is so cool. It would make a cool travel tattoo. But enough of that. I am getting off topic.

I have decided to mention several places where I hope to travel to since visiting every country is unrealistic. Unless somehow, I become a bestseller author which still seems impossible.

Readers: Its still off topic.

Me: Fine.

One of the first travel experiences, I hope to have is to go to Nashville, Tennessee. If you know me, I love country music. The Grand Old Opry, Country Hall of Fame, Parthenon,  Music City Tiny House etc. You get the idea.

The Grand Ole Opry, an American icon and Nashville, Tennessee’s number-one attraction, is world-famous for creating one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences for audiences of all ages.  The Grand Ole Opry promotes the music of everyone from senior citizens Jimmy Dickens and Jean Shepard to hotshot youngsters Dierks Bentley, Trace Adkins and Brad Paisley. This multi-generational approach has served the show well for more than 80 years. It is one reason why the Opry can say with pride that it is "Th(image from Pinterest)

 

I really want to go to the Redwood forest. Its another dream of mine. I actually got a brochure from them after doing an assignment from my English textbook, Rod, and Staff.

Indonesia: The culture, animals, and landscape Everything, really. I love it. I really want to see Komodo dragons up close. I know its really dangerous but I really want to.

Bali, Indonesia (want to go) www.villapantaibali.com  Don't forget when traveling that electronic pickpockets are everywhere. Always stay protected with an Rfid Blocking travel wallet. https://igogeer.com for more information. #igogeer(image from Pinterest)

Of course, I pick one of most expensive places to go, Japan and no its not because of Pokemon. Ok, maybe it is.

Life got even better. Owl Cafes exist in Japan. I LOVE OWLS.

My heritage is in Scotland and Ireland. So of course, I want to go my ancestor’s land.
