2012 Bucket List

I made a few unofficial New Years Resolutions this year... without actually vocalizing them lol. Besides the more boring practical ones that won't be mentioned here, the big one was just enjoying my life and taking advantage of opportunities that present themselves.

Enjoying the Present rather than dreaming of and planning for the distant Future.

A progression of this resolution is... a 2012 Bucket List!!!  This is just a more realistic list of some things I can look forward to and have fun with this year, rather than pining after things I cannot do now.

(like travel to Europe lol. Dream on, Ash)

I have already fulfilled some! Good thing too considering its almost halfway through the year.

I want to actually complete a sketch or drawing that I am completely proud of for once, and start incorporating art into my daily life. I signed up for a drawing class this summer to work on this!


Possibly thinking of Glenwood Springs, Colorado for some hiking, cave exploring, jacuzzing, and drinking in the fall.

Just for fun!

Gear needed: hiking boots, tent, sleeping bag, lighting, large cooler. Thinking of a fall trip to Arkansas to check out some of the waterfalls...


The Nutcracker, Dallas Winspear Opera House, December 2012.


I want to make a patchwork quilt.


 I have already taken a beginner class and gone twice at a lake! Now I just want to extend this to a paddling trail somewhere.


Looking forward to the rest of the year!


  1. Great bucket list! This reminds me that I really wanna go to the ballet.

  2. My husband and I always make New Year's resolutions to keep us accountable for some goals throughout the year (I have to write mine down, though, or they disappear from memory!). I love your list...especially the roadtrip. No better time for that than summer :)

  3. Thanks guys! I usually only make serious practical goals, so these were really fun to come up with hehe
