Birthday Bucket List Re-cap
**Below is what is currently depicted on my "Birthday Bucket List" tab ... I have updated it to reflect what I have done. Soon, since my birthay is this coming Saturday, I will be creating a new list and the tab will change. Anyways, just to recap the year..........
Each year before my birthday I come up with a list of things to do before my next birthday. The number of things I put on the list is the same as my age. I have been doing it for several years now and I really like it. Links to posts that are about that particular item on the list. I you would like you can check out last year's list (on my old blog) here:30 Things to Do Before I am 31. Now, onto this years this - Red items are things I did not do:
31 Things to Do Before I am 32
1.Go to a FSU Basketball Game - I did this but I did not post about it
2. Visit the FSU Rez - I have done this twice - both times with my fellow art therapy students!
3. Read Overcoming Trauma Through Yoga - Finished!!
4. Finish hanging pictures in the house - All pictures and most of my paintings are now hanging up! It only took me 1 year of living in the apartment to accomplish this!
5. Try Cardio HipHop Class - Cardio Hip Hop was not offered in the spring, but I did try (numerous times!) Cardio Party which i think is almost the same thing!
6. Volunteer at Camp - Camp Boggy Creek Asthma Weekend & Holiday Party
7. Read 5 just for fun books - This is far beyond complete
8. Take an art workshop - Peace Papers Workshop Part I; Peace Papers Workshop Part II; Peace Papers Workshop Part III
9. Finish 2 art journals - I've started so many journals that this is not likely to happen - but I have more than completed 2 journals worth of pages this year so I am satisfied.
10. Visit a new city - I visited Thomasville, GA but did not post about it

14. Do a Turkey Trot - I did this, but did not post about it
