Fall Bucket List

So my fall bucket list is going to be linked there so you can see the original reason why I wanted to include it. Below is how I did on it!

  • Get A’s in my Leadership and Corporate Finance Classes
    Ummmm, why is this here?? Grades aren’t posted until the end of the semester! This one is going to be passed onto the winter bucket list then. Also… more on that finance class later… This is why I’m so bad at making goals haha! 
  • Book a flight
    Yikes I haven’t! NOLA ended up not happening yet because my manager didn’t approve the time off until the month it was supposed to happen and by then the flights were too expensive. Then I was waiting for family to confirm if we’re getting together somewhere for Thanksgiving to decide if I need a flight (unfortunately these plans fell through) and for my parents to decide if we’re going to Mexico early next year and, if so, what exact dates so I can book that. Long story short, nope 😦
  • Visit at least once for both Six Flags Fright Fest and Last Call
    I did do both! Fright Fest was chilly but fun, Last Call was cold and not fun. Still glad I was able to see both though!
  • Get my guitar fixed
    So I first wrote this feeling guilty that I hadn’t done this (I prewrote this by like 3 weeks) but I did take it! At the time of writing this I dropped off my guitar and got a quote of $20 to fix it, as well as a quote of $15-20/half hour for lessons. It should be ready tomorrow and I plan to pick up both a guitar and a flute lesson book to try to get back into my practicing and self-teaching. After school I want to take guitar lessons weekly and maybe flute lessons monthly. Update – I got my guitar! Final price to fix was $20 and then I bought a guitar practice book for beginners and a flute Christmas songs practice book. I’m excited to try them!
  • Do a complete budget for myself
    OMG WHY HAVE I NOT YET DONE THIS??? I really need to get on this.
  • See at least one musical
    Yup! I did see Sweet Charity this season!
  • Visit a farm!
    HAHA so my friend got the job as a seasonal farm hand but then ended up quitting after one season so I did not go to the farm.
  • Look into creating a podcast
    I did look into it but decided this was not quite where my passion lies.
  • Work on my year goal – β€œGet it done”
    It’s going great so far! When I need get something done I do so this is probably the best goal so far!

So I’ve only done 5 out of 9. Whoops! Clearly this season got away from me but hopefully winter will go better? Let’s see what my goals are!

Winter Bucket List

Here is what my goals are!

  • Get A’s in my Leadership and Corporate Finance Classes
    Let’s try this in the season that I’ll actually get my grades, shall we? Although I don’t have grades to both yet, so far I’ve failed this one because I did get an A- in my Leadership class. Corporate Finance is still up in the air but this class is horrendous. It’s not worth a penny so I’m livid that I’ve wasted a few grand on this class. If you missed my previous mentions on this class, the initial professor was amazing but when we had to get a replacement professor the class became the biggest joke. I hate every second I waste on it but it was far too late to really do anything about it when it all occurred so now I’ve been stuck with it. 
  • Book a flight
    Specifically… Mexico! I really hope to do this soon as it’s about a month left!
  • Visit at least once for Six Flags Holiday In the Park
    Well actually I’ve technically already done this but since it’s still the start of the winter season I might go again so I’ll leave this here!
  • Sell my first item on Poshmark!
    I think it’ll be a miracle if I can get a sale this winter but I’m going to try! I started my “closet” with stuff I had lying around – mostly stuff that no longer fits and stuff I want to get rid of. I do also have items that I just never wore so I’m slowly putting stuff up but it’s not like it’s stuff people would really want like luxury brands or anything. Hopefully at least some stuff starts selling! Let me know if you have a closet so I can follow you! (Also if you have any Poshmark tips please let me know!) My link to my Poshmark here!
  • Catch up on my Goodreads Goal.
    I am still so far behind and I’m hoping to catch up before the end of the year! Currently sitting at 12/20 so I’m going to need to get to reading ASAP! I might end up changing it to 15 just to make it reasonable at this point since I’ve really failed the reading goal this year. 
  • See at least one musical
    Sticking to this one too because I love musicals and although I hate going out in the winter it’s still a great time to see a musical. Right now I don’t have tickets to anything but I do have a few shows I’m interested in so we’ll see! 
  • Do a mini Christmas photoshoot!
    I think I can enlist my mom to be my photographer and hopefully I can make it fun!
  • Create a blog business plan
    I don’t necessarily want to treat my blog like a business but my friend suggested this recently and I thought it would be fun to do.
  • Work on my year goal – β€œGet it done”
    I’m going to also leave this one as it’s my yearly goal and need constant reminders!

Advent Calendar Item #3

So what’s the third item for the advent calendar? It’s…

blogmas advent calendar soap and glory hand food lotion

A hand lotion! This time of year it’s so dry so I included a hand lotion in the advent calendar lineup. I used the Soap & Glory Hand Food lotion which actually is one of my favorites so even though the idea was just a lotion in general this one I would actually consider putting in. Either that or an Ahava one maybe! 

And that’s my winter bucket list! What are your goals for the season? I’d love to know!

Thanks for reading!

  1. I loveee this bucket list- I am gonna steal a few of these ideas myself!! I love the idea of creating a business blog plan- need to do that. And I can’t wait to see how you like Poshmark- I just love it!

    • Omg yes, please do steal some for your bucket list!!! And I think my blog would just be more fun if I had a plan? So I totes want to do one! And so far Poshmark is fun to look through but I want to buy so many things!

  2. Those are some good goals! I just recently started using Poshmark, too! I listed a bunch of items that I had in my closet (that I was going to probably donate soon) and I’ve been surprised at how many sales I’ve had so far! (I price things pretty low which helps…) Good luck with yours!! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you! I also did the same thing where I was about to donate stuff but I haven’t priced things very low. I think I just might have to because either way I want to get rid of stuff haha! Good luck with your closet! πŸ™‚


  3. Sis I have also been trying to create a blog business plan since I’ve completed my degree and I don’t know what to do with my lifeπŸ˜…. Oh and please book that flight and go to Mexico, that would be fun

  4. I totally think you should bring up getting a refund for that class again since the professor never improved. I just checked out your Poshmark store and everything looks great, I’m sure you will start selling items in no time. πŸ™‚ I am behind on my Goodreads goal, too, by like 2 or 3 books now. I was ahead all year but of course, I’m failing in the last month. I hope we both are able to reach our goals before Dec. ends! & that you are able to cross everything off your list before spring! β™‘ I am excited to see this Christmas photoshoot. πŸ˜‰

    I wish this was a real advent calendar. I need to try Soap & Glory asap. I have never heard of Ahava though! What’s your fave product by them?

    • Hmmmmm maybe I will ask again! It was terrible. The only thing is that I’m worried they’ll say I have to stay for another class and not graduate on time, so that’s my only hesitation. But I’m so disappointed we didn’t get to learn properly.

      Awww thanks for checking my Poshmark! Hopefully I do, I think I’ve priced too high maybe for what I have so I have lowered prices a bit. If I still don’t sell I think I’ll take some of it to a shelter but we’ll see!

      I need to get back to reading! Good luck on making your goal! I think I’ve been behind most of the year haha, whoops!

      Awwwwww I wish it was real too so I could give you one! I love the Ahava dead sea mineral hand lotion. Or something close to that because it has a lot of words in the name hahahaha!


      • Ahh I see. I would be worried about not graduating on time too but how disappointing to waste money on a class that you didn’t really get to learn in.

        You should definitely keep your clothes up on the site for a bit but donating to a shelter is always a nice option, too. πŸ™‚

        Good luck to you on reaching your reading goal, too! I’ll have to keep an eye out for the Ahava brand now. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the rec! β™‘
