Two Junes ago, I blogged my bucket list. Last October, it was updated. So many wonderful things have happened since then. Now, I am updating the list once again to show what I have accomplished and add new ideas.
Working for Disney is probably the biggest accomplishment so far. Realizing that I succeeded in checking that off my list was so exciting! What a cool thing. Continue reading →
My roommate said this amazing phrase the other day: “You have a way with people.”
“Yeah, a way of making them annoyed,” I wanted to quip. However, the negative remarks just stayed in my head as I smiled in thanks.
Her response had to do with a story I had told her about my day. Earlier that afternoon, I went to Harry Potter World at Universal Studios for the first time. Stepping into Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade was truly a magical experience.
To be independent. I want each of my children to have the ability and confidence to live an independent life, making their own choices based on their own values, and not feeling limited by their own fears or insecurities. I have to remind myself of this when it would be easier for me to “fix” one of their problems, than to let them figure it out themselves.
To reasonably assess risk. Risk management is a huge part of everyday adult life. So whether it be climbing trees or jumping off of the playground, I fight my helicopter-parent instincts every day in the hopes that by allowing my children to self-monitor their own risk-taking (age appropriately, of course) I’m teaching them skills that will last…
Meeting Princess Anna who also has problems with promises

LONDON (AP) — A century-old message in a bottle, possibly the oldest ever found, has finally reached its destination.
Tossed into the North Sea sometime between 1904 and 1906, the bottle washed up on the beach in the German town of Amrum, and was found by a couple in April. Inside they found a postcard asking that it be sent to the Marine Biological Association of the U.K. — which they did.
The association said Friday that the bottle was one of some 1,000 thrown into the North Sea as part of marine research more than 100 years ago. Inside each bottle was a postcard promising a shilling to anyone who returned it to the association, based in Plymouth.
Most of the messages were returned decades ago. The German couple got their shilling.

Let’s just say I was a little more than thrilled to find out my work location. I was nervous to find out where I would be working. Considering I have…
The other day, I was looking at jewelry inspired by Vincent Van Gogh. One of my favorite artists, this man had a tragic life that ended in suicide. He was so talented but only sold one painting in his whole life. Others looked at him, judged, laughed, and turned away instead of seeing his talent. Instead of seeing the deeply burrowed pain in him.
No one realized the brilliance of van Gogh until after his death. This made me wonder a dark question: is there a point to being creative if no one cares?
