Day five and still alive!
Today we’re supposed to talk about my Fall bucket list. I almost skipped today because to be honest, I don’t have a regular bucket list so I certainly don’t have a Fall themed one. Sure there are things that I want to do/accomplish/see in my lifetime, but whenever I say “I need to do ____ within ___ days/weeks/years” and then I don’t do it, I get annoyed and frustrated with myself. So to avoid heartache and eventual regret I tend to shy away from bucket lists. However, I’m really trying hard to be a better blogger and in the spirit of being a good sport, I’ll try to muster one up.
1. I want to build my photography portfolio so I need to get out there with my camera more. Luckily for me, I live a train ride away from one of the most beautiful cities in the world. New York in the Fall- that’s a bucket list item if I’ve ever heard one.
2. Keeping with the New York theme, I’ve wanted to go to the top of the Empire State building for a while now. I would prefer to go when it isn’t snot freezing cold though. Better go sooner rather than later.
3. One tradition that my parents and I like to keep is taking a ride to New Jersey to pick a pumpkin. By “pick” I mean we pick the best looking one off of a table full of pumpkins. We also pick up my favorite Fall treats like apple cider, apple cider donuts, caramel apples (how do you like them apples?). One time we went to a pretty well-known orchard in Jersey and of course, when it was time to check out my caramel apple ended up in my parent’s pile of goodies. My father paid the bill and when we got to the car he looked at the receipt and asked me if I knew that my delicious caramel apple, that was already pulling my fillings out, was $10. I played dumb, but of course I knew. I wish I could say my behavior could be chalked up to being a spoiled kid, but the truth is, I wasn’t a kid when it happened. Spoiled? yes. A kid? not so much.
This isn’t much of a bucket list so I think I’ll end it here. I guess my bucket list could be as simple as Blogtober and posting something everyday. If that’s the case, I think I’m doing a pretty good job.
