It’s amazing what happens when you start putting out into the universe what you want. Of course, it doesn’t really work with specific people, because you can’t control them. But looking at my growing bucket list and what’s happened in the last few days, I’m pretty astounded.
#11. Learn to knit/crochet – I went to the local yarn store and signed up for a beginners knitting class. I start on Monday. Also, while I was there, me and the lovely two Southern ladies got to talking and they were suprised that I was from up North because I apparently didn’t sound like I was from the North. That made me feel good. I told them that I’ve had vocal training and like to sing, so I’m trying to pick up the accent. When they heard that, they asked me to sing something, so I did. It came out pretty good, and they clapped. It made me very happy.
#40. Relearn to play guitar fluently – About an hour ago, I got an email from my sister. She had some LivingSocial credit and got me four music lessons! I get lessons to relearn to play guitar! I could even get help with songwriting, too, cause they do that, too! Awesome!
#1. Do a split – I found this site that talks about how stretching is not all you need to know/do to get into “the splits” (can someone tell me why it’s a plural? It’s like eggplants. I didn’t know that was supposed to be plural, either, until I saw it on a few menus. Weird.) I really want the DVDs, but maybe for Christmas, cause the set is $100. But I found the site.
I’ve also made some general progress towards losing weight and getting healthier. Instead of ice cream, I bought sorbet the other night when I went to the store. And when I decided to start eating cereal again, I got my unsweetened almond coconut milk instead of regular milk. I’ve been taking my nieces out into the pool the last few days, and I did a LOT of walking yesterday. The whole So You Think You Can Dance workout series is saved on my Pinterest, so sometime this week, I’m going to start learning the routines to get my body moving more.
