Heavy research leads to bucket lists

I’ve been looking into quite a few things lately that would pretty much completely change my life. Surgery, where to live, money, and school are the biggest factors. Now what this means to me is that I’m constantly researching things. Looking up videos, articles, coming up with more questions and searching for answers on them. I get off my computer at work, come home, get on my laptop and start surfing again. This is probably totally unhealthy but let’s be honest – I’m never one to step into something easily.

What this leads to though, with my head full of a ridiculous amount of information and even more questions, is thinking about what I want to DO in life. I obviously want to be happy (who doesn’t?), but when I think about things to actually do I come up with a “Bucket List”. And yes, I wish I could come up with a better name for it other than “A List I Create Every Time I Need to be Doing Something Else and then Never Write Down So I Inevitably Forget It All”. So you know what? Since I have a million other things I should be doing right now, I’m going to take the time to write down my “A.L.I.C.E.T.I.N.tb.D.S.E.at.N.W.D.S.I.I.F.I.A” list. I’ll kindly leave this behind a cut so as not to clutter up this page.

*full disclosure: this will probably be added to/adjusted as my life progresses

**extra full disclosure: I’m sad there is no photo but I suppose I’ll just deal

    WHY HAVEN’T I EVER REMEMBERED TO DO THE TOUR AT DISNEYLAND??
    You really need to remind me of everything.

    Also, if you ever get into Club 33, I promise that I will fly and meet you, no matter what. Leave that husband at home (or just get an invite for three, I’m flexible).

      You need to get on that! It’s going to be one of the things I HAVE to do at my first trip to DL!

      If I get into Club 33 I’ll first have to be given smelling salts, but shortly after I promise I’ll let you know. Then we can party it up classy style.

    I’ve actually been to Disneyland three or four times…can’t remember which. Dale and I were newly married and living in Long Beach, CA. My favorite spot was the Swiss Family Robinson treehouse, because I had loved the book and movie so much when I was a kid. It was a pretty amazing spot, and I have fond memories. I’ve been to Montreal, too, when I was in high school.
