I almost made a joke about Welcome Back, Kotter in the title, but I restrained myself. Consider yourself lucky.
So, I’m back. You’re back. We’re back. We’re here, at this blog, and I’m so happy about that! You may notice the blog is looking a little different…check it out! I changed my bio page, I’ve added links to my fave blogs; you should look at them!
How did my blog break go, you may be wondering? Oh, if only you knew. Which you will know, because I’m about to tell you. There was writing. There was hiking. There were late nights. There were early mornings. There was grading. There were new running shoes. There were some….shenanigans. There was my face losing a battle with the ground, resulting in stitches and bruising and dental work. Good times? For the most part, yes, especially that dental work part. (Am I being sarcastic? You may never know…hahaha.)
But the really important part, here, is that it’s now summer. My brain is switching from teacher-brain to summer-brain, and it needs projects. I don’t know about you, but I can’t just sit around with nothing to do and feel satisfied with that. I need to work on something, or somethings, and I guess part of it is I want to make sure my summer is well-spent.
So, it seems fitting that I take part in the Joy the Baker Podcast homework of creating a summer bucket list. I think all of us have some sort of summer bucket list….what’s on yours?
Christine’s Summer 2012 Bucket List
1. Re-commence my running program (interrupted by said lost battle between face and ground).
2. Hike at least two Fourteeners/raise money for MS via Multiple Summits for MS.
3. Hike to, but not limited to, the following locations: Maroon Bells, Monarch Lake, Hanging Lake.
4. Write. Write. Write. Figure out what I’m writing about. Write. Write. Write.
5. Make my living space a space I love.
6. Go camping.
7. Go to a film at Film on the Rocks (I’ve got my eye on you, Anchorman).
8. Go to a bluegrass festival/music festival.
9. Make frozen yogurt popsicles.
10. Climb the hill behind Red Rocks and listen to live music. (But don’t tell anyone because you’re totally not supposed to do that.)
11. Have a picnic.
12. Go to the zoo. Have pictures taken of me in a stare-down with a monkey, and testing how far I can jump compared to different animals.
13. Watch fireworks on a blanket with friends.
14. Complete photo shoots of friends.
Also, just because, here’s a pretty picture of a flower. Some people make fun of people (me) who take pictures of flowers. Ask me if I care (hint: I don’t).
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.
