Every summer I make a bucket list.
A mental one (I tend to lose all of the physical lists that I make)… it lives in my mind, and I add to it every time I think of another adventure I want to take. It’s becoming quite long, and I think that’s because I haven’t really gone anywhere yet this season. I’m starting to feel the itch… that little spark inside of me that needs to get out, needs to see the new and the untouched. Maybe it’s a vacation, or even a quick weekend getaway Whatever it is, it needs to happen soon.
I’ve found that I have a hard time at checking off this list of mine. Does anyone else feel me on this?
I want to drive here, I want to camp out there, I want to explore a new space… there’s so much that I want to do, but how do I get myself there? I always feel like there’s not enough time. Last year, I blinked, and it felt like the summer was gone.
A recent trip with some friends to upstate New York adjusted my thoughts, though. I woke up in Brooklyn, spent the afternoon 20 minutes outside of Woodstock, then went to bed in the suburbs of Philly. One day, three places. It’s a good thing I love driving.
I realized just how much you can experience in 24 hours. As I go back through my list, I’d love some advice on how you all plan to tackle your summer wishes.
