To Do List of 2021

I tried this last year and sucked at it just as badly as I did in 2018. I can blame the pandemic, because, let’s be honest, it’s affected EVERYTHING but, in reality, I just haven’t put much effort into the “little things”. However, on the eve of my 49th birthday I’m thinking it’s time… definitely not getting any younger so I should probably get to it.

This cakes journey was about as complicated as my own and is, actually, the best representation of my own life I could have ever imagined. Slightly crooked on the outside, a little messy, but pure joy on the inside.

So here goes – my To Do List of 2021. And yes, most of these are a rollover of last years..

  1. Finish up that gun class I took and actually learn how to use one. My darn license is about to expire and I still haven’t done anything with it. When that is done, I want to PURCHASE a gun of my own. Who knows where this life of mine will take me and I really need to learn to take care of myself.
  2. Learn how to meditate – like for real, the right way – the kind where my soul actually leaves my body and does my body and my mind some good. For some reason, maybe age, I feel like I need this more than ever now. There is something in me that just doesn’t feel “settled”.
  3. Take a photography class. I absolutely love my camera and I love some of the things I can do with it but there is still so much more to learn. So starting today; it will go with me EVERYWHERE I go. And I will learn to use it PROPERLY
  4. Visit one new place (city, town, museum, are gallery – ANYTHING) at least once a month. This one is a must. It will be good for me, my art, my photography, and most importantly, give me something to write about. Which leads me to my next “to do”.
  5. Keep up with this blog. It’s here – why not?
  6. Pay off my Target card. Lasy year I said that odds were slim. Since they closed it on me; my chances are starting to look up.
  7. Visit the Selena Memorial Museum… don’t laugh, it’s real!
  8. Stay at a Bed and Breakfast 
  9. Visit that Ice Castle Spa place
  10. See Magnolia Silosdone! In 2020 but whatever, it counts..
  11. Indoor Sky Dive

Yes, this is a pseudo miniature bucket list and all of these are on my actual Bucket List but I’m all about breaking down the little things into smaller, attainable goals..

So here goes.. let’s get started.

To Do List of 2020

I did one of these in 2018 and, to be honest, I sucked at it. I probably accomplished one thing off the list and, even then, it was about a year later.

I think my son accomplished another one. OK, he did… but it was still HIS accomplishment, not mine.

But, here we are; another DECADE upon us. And here I am, still making my damn lists.

So here goes – my To Do List of 2020.

  1. Finish up that gun class I took and actually learn how to use one. I mean, I am a LICENSED gun carrier person..
  2. Learn how to meditate – like for real, the right way – the kind where my soul actually leaves my body and does my body and my mind some good.
  3. Take a photography class.
  4. Go see Abraham-Hicks LIVE and IN PERSON.
  5. Pay off my Target card (odds are slim)
  6. Stay at a Bed and Breakfast
  7. Visit that Ice Castle Spa place
  8. See Magnolia Silos

That should do it for this year. If I can accomplish even HALF of these things; it’s gonna be a good year.

My To Do List of 2018

I am a huge fan of To Do Lists – I create them almost daily. There is something about scratching items off that list that brings me such comfort… it’s the little things in life, right.. (no one said I was normal).

On top of my day to day list; I went ahead and created a To Do List for the year.. things I plan to accomplish in 2018…. a Vision Board of sorts.. of course, Im constantly making revisions to this list but, today, it goes like this..
1. Take a Photography Class
2. Take a Gun Class
3. Learn how to meditate
4. Take up Yoga (yay, more yoga pants)
5. Pay off my credit cards (which I will probably charge up tackling #4 – it’s a vicious cycle)
6. See my son graduate college (which will then allow me to do #5, which helps #4 – oh my GOD)
This is just the beginning of an ever-evolving list. If it’s one thing I learned; it’s to never stop learning. The day that happens is the day it’s all over…
