A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes...

With it being spring break this week, I thought I'd go a little lighter on this blog. Also, I am currently in dream mode of the millions of place I want to be and things I want to do throughout this week, so I thought I'd share at least part of my bucket list. I'd love to hear from anyone who has done anything on the list; collaboration can always teach people something new, and that would be great!

My Bucket List

-Snorkel/Scuba/Cage Dive with sharks

-Learn to ride a bike (I really don't know how!)

-Visit Ireland, France, England, Spain, and Germany

-Live abroad in Europe

-Go paragliding

-Go whitewater rafting in/near the Grand Canyon

-Get married and have kids

-Join and become involved in a great church

-Own my own dog

-Volunteer regularly with a charity that means something to me. My main passions for volunteering involve those with disabilities, suicide prevention, and the homeless.

-Read more authors I was introduced to in undergrad (Ellis, Cheever, Updike)

-See Jason Aldean, Zac Brown Band, Eric Church, or Luke Bryan in concert (any of them!)

-Become Teacher of the Year

-Work my way into administration

-Go back to school for my law degree (and practice in education!)

-Learn to cook really well, and cook frequently

-Try snow-shoeing

-Meet a president


  1. I love this bucket list! I have some of the same items on mine! Meet a president--I'm adding that one!

  2. This is great!! I love your ideas. You have both fun and professional - good luck in achieving your dreams and endeavors!

  3. Emily- I have actually done the swimming with sharks when I was in 10th grade! Love your bucket list! It is great to have a vision of where you want to go and what you want to do. I have also been Teacher of the Year!

  4. A great list - beautifully balanced between all the aspects of your life.

  5. Wasn't sure if you saw this slice inspired by your slice today...


    1. I just saw that...how neat! Thank you! :) Congrats on having been Teacher of the Year, I can imagine how deserving you are! And I would love to hear about the shark swimming, I have a huge interest in that, ha ha! Hope your week is going well!
