I don’t know if it’s the whole getting older thing — but I feel like I blinked and 2014 is coming to an end in a few hours.
I started doing a yearly bucket list in 2013, and I must admit I didn’t do as well in 2014. I feel like I did better than what I expected, lots of firsts and travel.
1. Complete my 10K run in an hour.
Well, my 10K was cancelled, But, that didn’t stop me — I participated in Neon Run 5K and my first Mudderella run — definitely wasnt prepared for it. I am looking forward to doing it again next year!
2. Go to a cigar bar.
For some reason this never happened. I did go to a Pisco Bar. Yum, pisco.
3. Visit the Empire State Building.
Yup, it did not happen. I need to be a tourist in my own hometown. I went to see my first soccer (oops, I mean futbol) game (Brasil vs Ecuador) at MetLife Stadium, and I may or may not have bought a team t-shirt. bonus: my World Cup Eye Candy post here
4. Ride a bike over the Cooper River Bridge in Charleston, SC
I did go to Charleston (loved it!), but I didn’t ride my bike over the bridge. I did take a selfie in a cotton field though.
5. See the Grand Canyon.
Didn’t see the Grand Canyon. But, I did see the Hoover Dam, and survived Vegas in June.
6. Submit a research grant proposal.
Grant in progress. I am half way done. That counts right? bonus photo, because it’s funny — my sister and I went on this rollercoaster in Hershey Park. Her face is priceless!
7. Complete a class on Coursera.
I started one, and never finished it. I guess I was too preoccupied. I enrolled in Espanol classes finally. I’m once step closer to reading Marquez in Spanish.
8. Have afternoon tea.
Yes! I went for my birthday this year @ Alice’s Tea Cup. Great fun with my nearest and dearest 🙂
9. Read the Bible. The whole thing, not just certain sections.
Another failed attempt. A lot harder to get through than I expected. I did deepen my relationship with God in other ways. I also purified my sins at the Totumo Mud Volcano in Colombia
10. Use my passport.
Finally! Colombia — my first time in South America, and certainly not my last. And I will add stamps every year, that’s my plan.
Cheers to 2015!! Stay tuned 🙂
