I’ve mentioned many times before how I have a personal bucket list of things I want to do whether that be within the next few months or the next few years. In my most recent blog, I stated that it’s a goal of mine to check off as much as I can this summer. One of those items that’s been on my list is The Lights Fest.
I’ve had a bucket list started since high school (possibly earlier). Skydiving has been on that list for quite some time; I’ve been wanting to go for years. While I’ve been wanting to go for what seems like forever, part of me had settled on the fact that I might just never get around to it. But here I am, one day later, having jumped out of a plane 10,000 feet in the sky.
Creating a vision board is something that has always been on my to-do list that I’ve never quite gotten around to (until now that is).
We’re barely two weeks into 2018 and I’ve been lucky enough to visit my favorite city twice. There’s just something about the New York City air (cue sarcastic joke about pollution) that gives off a vibe like no other. The atmosphere is incredible and this city is the reason why I know I’m not likely to ever move too far away. Consider this blog a dedication to the best city there is.
This year has marked so many milestones in my life. Both big and small, good and bad; I’m very grateful for all that this past year has given and taken from me. While there are endless memories and people to be thankful for, here are a few things I’m looking back on with gratitude now that 2017 has come to a close.
Happy New Year lovely readers!
It’s slightly crazy that 2018 is already here. This past year has marked so many changes in my life, both good and bad, that have all been blessings in the fact that they have built me into the best version of myself to date (keep a lookout for a blog post that I’ll be linking here this Sunday if you want to read about my personal milestones for 2017).
I’m finally back living in my favorite area as my last semester of college begins! My roommate and I decided to take advantage of the light workload (for now) that we have and visit one of our favorite nearby towns: Red Bank.
I’m sure you’re familiar with the saying, “Life’s a beach and I’m just playing in the sand.” I’ve heard this phrase time and time again. I have seen it used as a caption on endless beach pictures and I’ll admit it’s a saying that’s gotten pretty annoying. However, the other day I went down the shore with a friend of mine and had that saying pop into my head. I thought of how much meaning is actually behind those words.
Something I’ve been trying to do more and more this summer is to appreciate the beautiful world that we live in. Don’t get me wrong, I love technology as much as the next person, but there was a time that I would stay in my bed on my phone checking various social media platforms instead of enjoying the sunny day right outside my window.
Last weekend in celebration of me officially turning 21 and fun I had some friends from college come up to celebrate! We went to Iron Bar which is supposed to be a pretty popular bar about 40 minutes from where I live.
