Although simplistic, another goal has been accomplished! It was put on the list in the first place because a) I love my little brother more than anything in the world and b) I’ve always wanted to venture into our po-dunk little town on foot just to say that I have. Besides, what’s more classic than ice cream on a warm summer day and/or night? The walk was probably only about 15-20 minutes, and the treat at the end was definitely worth it. As we returned home, I asked him if he had a good time. His reply? A simple, “No.” Well, so much for my good deed. Then again, you have to keep in mind that whenever making a bucket list, you have to do it for yourself; as narcissistic as it seems, at the end of the day, you’ll be the one left the satisfaction, or the dissatisfaction, or your choices. I personally was left extremely satisfied by our journey… after a French Silk Pie Blizzard, who wouldn’t be?
Now I must write with regret, that there has been a failed attempt. #85. Obtain a *********fest button/participate in **********fest (our town’s community days) are now over, and I was not able to partake in these festivities. It was a combination of matriarchal oppression, the Florida trip, and lack of a license that resulted in this travesty. I had always wondered how I would manage should a list item would come and go without being crossed off… and let me tell you this. Failure in life is necessary. Without it, we have no reason to kick ourselves to actually work for what we want and know we deserve. I do not feel like I have ‘failed’; I have merely been given another reason to try harder. In the words of Winston Churchill, Success is going from failure to failure without a loss of enthusiasm. Besides, although I have one setback, I still have 14 memories to make me smile anyways. R.I.P. #85.
Love & Summer,
