Chapter 19: My Bucket List AKA Things To Do In Life

After watching the movie "The Bucket List" a couple of months ago, I was inspired to make my very own (Bucket List, not movie). So, in no particular order (honestly - this is just how it came out of my head onto the paper I originally wrote it on, and it is ever expanding) and with plenty of pictures to keep you entertained, here is...

My Bucket List

 Go to Australia (I've been in love with this place since the 3rd grade)

 Pet a grizzly bear (naturally... hello! I am Grizzly Girl!)

 Get married (*dreamy sigh*)

 Go on an African safari (nature, animals, warm weather... what's NOT to love?)

 Go to Hawaii (another obsessive place for me)

 Feel 100% beautiful (with this, I mean beautiful inside and out... I want to love who I am)

 Own a mastiff (my favorite breed... they really can get this big!)

 Go to Greece (the third obsession in my travel itinerary)

 Have kids (to complete my happy little family - can't decide if I want 2 or 3)

 Meet Johnny Depp (preferably dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow ha ha!)

 Take surf lessons (possibly on my trip to Hawaii?)

 Learn to speak Greek (before I take that trip to Greece, though)

 Take dance lessons (I love watching Riverdance!)

 Perform a surgery (legally, a vet tech cannot do this, but I would SO love to - love this picture, by the way!)

 Experience true love (ACCOMPLISHED!)

 Be completely happy (in every aspect of my life, all at the same time)

 Swim with dolphins (I almost cry everytime I see the commercial to do this)

 Go on a road trip and see an odd attraction in all 50 states (the largest ball of string? Yes please! the Empire State Building? no thanks...)

 Meet Morgan Spurlock (he did the documentary "Super Size Me" and has the awesome show "30 Days")

 Plan my own wedding (who wants someone else's vision on their dream wedding day? and by the way, I've already started!)


So, what do you want to do in your lifetime?

Chapter 18: Bad Me. I'm A Bad Author.

So, I had said that I would update more as the drug trial went on, but as you can see, that didn't happen so well.

Good news, though! I'm out of the trial!

I've actually been out since just a couple of days after my last post. The nurse at the study was like, "Yeah... I don't like the way you're feeling. I think I should drop you from the trial". And that was it.

I did, however, get some samples of the REAL medication from her. I have been taking them, and they are okay. I don't get full pain relief from them, but I'm also starting at a low dose, so maybe as I work my way up, it will be more beneficial. The only downfall is that my stupid insurance doesn't want to pay for it, so now my doctor and I are jumping through their hoops, putting me on new medications that are NOT working, just to get the new "miracle drug". It better be worth it. Hah!

(Hah! I wish!)

Other than that, things have been the same around here for the most part.

Oh oh oh! We celebrated B's 30th birthday yesterday! Happy birthday to him! I took him out to see a movie (Easy A, which was incredibly funny and I highly recommend it to y'all), and then out for sushi (yuck! His choice, not mine). He is all down about being 30, but I keep telling him that, to me, it makes him even more sexy. He's more mature, and I love that!

We also had an earthquake Saturday night! Creepy! They are rare for around this area, and when we do get them, they are rarely felt. But this one... Oh man! We both felt and heard this one! The whole house shook, and it sounded like the water heater under our house was about to explode! Not something I was to experience for a while.

What else... what else...

I have been semi-promoted at work! I am now a surgery technician for one of the doctors at our hospital! I didn't ask for it, and was just thrown right in which scared the hell out of me, but I am now enjoying it more.

Hmmmm. I think that's it for now. I should make myself an alert on my phone to update at least once a week. I'll try!
