Crafting Your Summer Bucket List





May 1st is here… that means we have about 1 month before our lives are all about tans, relaxation, and fun with friends. For some people, well at least for me, knowing that it’s only a month away is HARD! It’s not here but it’s not far away… So how do we keep ourselves going? That’s easy. Craft a summer bucket list!

Yes sometimes bucket lists can be cheesy, but when you really put a realistic effort into crafting a bucket list you would be surprised at how much of it you accomplish. Not to mention how much fun you’ll have while doing it!

But how do you create a realistic bucket list? Here are 5 “tips”:

1. Make sure that it’s something you really WANT to do

2. Make sure you have potential transportation

3. Dont make anything to expensive

4. Include other people so you aren’t alone

5. Don’t make it to big

All of those 5 things take into account the usual issues that people have while making bucket lists, especially if you are a teen/ young teen.

Now that you have an idea of what your bucket lists should consist of… you may be at a road block. Then what DO I put on my bucket list? Below is my summer bucket list. Keep it mind these are just suggestions/ideas, you may not want to do what I do! And, yes, I took my 5 tips into account!:

  • ¬†Go to the local Drive-In once a month for the double showing
  • Take a road trip to California
  • Get my first paid acting job
  • Teach Paddle Board Yoga
  • Go Horseback riding in the mountains
  • Try kayaking
  • Attend a pie eating contest
  • Run 15 miles
  • Surf
  • Shop until I drop
  • Ride my bike all the way to my favorite smoothie shop 30 miles away… and ride back
  • Take a week long camping trip… in my backyard
  • Get Henna tattoos with my best friends
  • Let go of all fear
  • Get in WICKED shape
  • Plan my 16th b-day party
  • Start my business

That’s what I have so far… What is going to be on your bucket list?


#SUP Man…. I Have A New Passion

Hey guys! To start off, for those of you who don’t know what #SUP is it is…… STAND UP PADDLE BOARD! Yes, you are standing up on a board and paddling your little booty (well technically arms but that didn’t sound as good) off! I tried for the first time this summer and absolutely LOVED it! And I got to do it again while I was on vacation in Mexico for Christmas last week.

It was one of those things that I felt like a complete natural at, it came easy, it was fun, and I completely and fully fell head over heels in love with it. I love when that happens! You think that you are going to try something that really, in the grand scheme of things, won’t do anything to change your life, and then suddenly BOOM! You have a new passion and all you want to do is do that thing.

That is what paddle board is for me! All I can think about is being up on that board, out on the ocean paddling around, hopping into some yoga poses, and doing some sit ups. Yes you read that right, you can do yoga… on a paddle board… in the middle of the ocean…. that to me, is heaven.

The point of me telling you this is because there is a very good chance that next year…. I am going to be able to do that all day, everyday. My family and I are creating a business plan to go town to _ (can’t tell you yet!) to start up a paddle board and boutique hotel business where people can come to reconnect with their body, mind, and spirit. Although, me and my mom would still have to travel back and forth when my acting career takes off. Perfectly fine with me! Doing both of the things that I love all the time, not a bad deal.

Even typing that makes me want to jump up and down. I know that this is what I am supposed to do with my life: act, teach, eat healthy, be on the beach, help others achieve their goals… ahhh creating heaven on earth my friends.

Busy day ahead of me… Keep following your dreams and remember to comment with questions, or if you just want to chat!
