Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun?!

I was sat talking to my boyfriend last night and we both realised just how fast time seems to go as you get older. I mean, I’d already realised this once I got into the working world because you find yourself praying for your holidays, or bank holidays, or even the days that your boss goes on holiday! But last night I had a really depressing thought…..it’s TEN YEARS this year since I left school. I’m officially getting closer to 30 day by day. Zoiks.

Age generally hasn’t ever really bothered me. I have a friend who started using anti-wrinkle cream at 21, seems like a waste of time to start so young if you ask me, I know some may disagree but, as long as you keep your skin well moisturised and look after it then you’ve got a pretty good shot of keeping wrinkles at bay. Wrinkles are a fact of life unless you’re wanting to go under the knife, I’d rather just wear them with pride (providing I don’t start to look like an elephant at 30, then I may have a different opinion on the matter).

I look through old photographs sometimes and think, really, was that however many years ago? The post I did recently on San Francisco contained pictures from my holiday in 2009, 2009, that was almost THREE YEARS ago, a sad fact that makes me want to weep into my green tea. Sigh. It’s the same with music isn’t it, do you ever hear a song and think, aargh I remember this from that night me and *insert name here* were on a night out and stumbled up to the DJ like a drunken fool demanding he play such a classic. And yes, Dolly Parton 9 to 5 IS a classic despite what that nightclub DJ says.

It’s a sad fact of life that time goes too quickly, depending which way you look at things too it can be downright depressing but, I’m choosing to think of it as a reminder that I should shift my little ass and work on that bucket list because it isn’t going to complete itself. I should start with something easy, to give myself a boost so I feel like somethings getting done, like when you write a to do list, even if its a really easy and quick task that you’ve checked off, the point is, you’ve made a start and one item has been checked off. Now, I think trying caviar might be the easiest one because, because, and I hope, the snow angel is a no go until we get more snow around December (please mother nature, spring snow is unacceptable. Just saying.)

Never take a day for granted! I’m off to requaint myself with my bucket list haha have a fun weekend folks!!

XOXO

Planning ahead

I know that they say that you shouldn’t plan ahead too much, but how can you look to the future with serious excitement if you don’t? When you book a holiday you’re planning, when you buy a house, it’s planning, so why shouldn’t you make lots of general life plans?

Although it’s not detrimental to my future wellbeing, I decided today to begin to take my bucket list to a whole new planned level!! For example, I want to go to Miami, so I’m gonna plan where I want to stay and what I want to do, so that when the day does come where I book the holiday, I can get excited about all of the things I want to see and do, things that, unless I write down at the time , I’d probably forget about! Kind of like little girls that start planning their weddings in a wedding scrap book from the age of 9 haha.

Oh….I appear to have added yet another thing to my list too….travel on the Orient Express. This may have to go on a general life long bucket list though, I’m not convinced that trips gonna happen in the next 5 years, unless I have a lottery win or a very generous donation from someone. Any takers??
