Knitting, baking, music, life. Socially awkward since 1975.
My Life List
Visit England, Scotland, & Ireland (not necessarily in the same trip).
Go hiking in Montana – maybe Glacier National Park?
Taste 100 types of candy and/or chocolates. I’m taking this one off the list – it’s not conducive to helping me have a healthy lifestyle. I’m not giving up chocolate completely, but I have to eat it in moderation. I allow myself to eat a little too much of it with this on the list. Previous taste tests here and here.
Find the perfect piece of chocolate (for me). See above.
(a) Run a 5k. (b) If my body will allow the 5k & I don’t injure myself, then I’ll change the goal to a half marathon. Baby steps.
Learn how to change a flat tire.
Go zip lining.
Visit Canada, even if it’s just going across the border.DONE
Karaoke REM’s It’s the End of the World As We Know It completed 8/7/2015.
See Chichén Itzá.
See Dave Matthews Band live. I hear they put on a good show. I don’t know how or why I haven’t done this yet.
Learn how to properly cook a steak.
Eat at the restaurants I want to try instead of just keeping a list of them in my head. Related: Eat at the 5 Best Thai Restaurants in StL (according to the RFT, added October 25, 2011). Tried: Thai Kitchen, Onesto (no post, but the spinach pizza and garlic knots were delicious).
Get a maple bacon doughnut from Voodoo Donuts in Portland, Oregon.
Take care of my health issues: heart echo, get back into an exercise program (I’m going to quantify this as routine visits to to the gym/exercise for 30 minutes at a time for a period of at least 3 months), get off my meds ’cause I’m all healthy-like, go to the dermatologist already.
Get my finances in order.
Eat vegan for a week. See if I can REALLY live without cheese.
Travel Route 66 from beginning to end, stopping at the sights along the way.
Do a taco crawl on Cherokee Street.
Get my current tattoos redone/finished.
Celebrate my 35th 40th birthday by doing something special &/or fun. (my 35th wound up being in the middle of a big ball of stress, so I didn’t have the time to plan something awesome or take a fun trip.)
Have a house of my own.
Really learn to crochet. As in complete a blanket or some other large-ish crochet project so I can feel that I’ve mastered it. Unlike right now when I pick up the hook & only halfway remember what I’m doing.
Go to Jazzfest in New Orleans, at least for a weekend.
