Does anyone have a bucket list? If so, what’s on it?
I’m working with Eventbrite to support GOMO: Going Out More Often, which reminds us that we should aim to have more memorable experiences in life with friends and family rather than be satisfied with material things. Statistics show that most of us would like to have more of these experiences anyway so let’s make it happen!
While keeping this concept in mind, I’ve created a bucket list of things I want to do this summer.
1.Hot Yoga Class
This is a trend that I’ve heard so much about and have been hesitant to try. I’m already not great at yoga and then being in a hot room could send me over the edge. At the end of the day, it would be an experience that I wouldn’t forget. Who knows, I may connect with my inner yogi and find peace and relaxation in it.
2. Tour a Brewery/Go to a Wine Tasting
No matter if you like beer over wine or wine over beer, both of these things are awesome experiences. I have done a wine tasting in the past and it was nice being able to learn about each wine that we tried (aroma, smell, and taste of course) instead of just going to the store and getting the cheapest boxed wine my friends and I could find. I’m not huge on beer but this is definitely still getting checked off my list this summer.
New Orleans is a place full of culture and one of a kind experiences. Between the food, the people, the festivals, nightlife, and the food, there is so much to take in when you’re there. You probably have to make a separate bucket list just for this place. One of the main things I want to go when I’m there is the Essence Festival. They have a great line-up for the concerts every year and being surrounded by influential melanin leaders is the icing on the cake. And don’t forget the food!
4. Go GLAMping
Glamping is the newest trend for those that want to enjoy the pros and other amenities of camping while not having to experience the cons and downsides to being in the wilderness. I am always down for anything new, however, there are some things I NEED if I’m doing the outdoors for a weekend. Nothing outrageous. As long as there is plumbing, hot water, and wifi, we’re good.
5. Start a Garden
Having a garden is an experience that can last you all summer long. My mom is big on gardening so I guess it’s time I see if she passed this trait on to me too. She usually plants herbs, lavender, lettuce, tomatoes, string beans, peppers etc. and I love it because our food tastes so much better and it’s fresh (obviously).
6. Watch the Sunrise
I put this on my bucket list because it will probably take all summer for me to get up early enough to do this. Watching the sunset is great too but the other part of watching the sunrise is knowing that I am up starting my day early. Who knows what I’ll be able to accomplish!
