52 Week Lists

Happiest Moments of Life So Far... (52 Lists-Week 3)

Happiest Moments in my Life So Far...

Man, these lists get a little deep, don't they? I know off the bat a few (OK, I know two..two). But let's see where my mind rambled?

  • Getting Engaged- This is probably on most people's list, but I never dated anyone prior to my husband. A lot of that is due to sheer shyness, but, the other is I was either not interested in anyone, or, they weren't interested in me back. I did know right away I wanted to be with The Tenor the moment I met him though (not trying to be cheesy, it's just the way it was). At the time however, I was working on me so, I put those thoughts aside. But when we got engaged, I was so happy I couldn't speak. I didn't think I could've been so full of emotions, but I went silent and was a blubbering love fool!

  • Getting on Stage with Green Day/First Kiss- in 2009 I was still very Josie Geller (Never Been Kissed) and I wanted to make sure that I got one from #ForeverCrush Billie Joe Armstrong! The Tenor (who was then, "Just a Friend") and our BFF Koala-Bear and I went to see the band, and the goal was to get me on stage. We did, and, I insisted on making sure Billie Joe gave me a peck. Not going to lie, it wasn't "magic" or "fireworks" but for me, it was about making sh*t happen that year. And dammit: I slammed revolving doors!

  • New Life Change- This has been a bit of a double-edged sword. On one hand, I am missing my family and friends a lot. Like, a lot you guys! On the other, it's been nice to focus on us, relax a bit, learn about keeping house a bit more (something I thought I knew, but realize it's a lot harder than I thought). Also, we have cute fur-babies! It's nice to know we're in a new place in life, that while extremely trying, is also very rewarding not just for us, but for a lot of people. Also, the day I found out, I was so happy to quit my old job. Like, whenever I feel down about missing CA, I just think about how satisfying that was and it puts a smile on my face.

  • The Twins- When my sister gave birth to the twins, I was so happy (and not just because she took some pressure off the Tenor and I lol). They are my mum's first grand babies, and my first niece and nephew I got to be at the birth for! They're so precious, cute, and smart! I love them!

  • Getting Married- Obviously (save the best for last)! I wasn't sure I'd want a traditional wedding growing up, and surprising (most especially to me) I did! I was so excited and happy, and while there was one major mix up at our reception venue, IT DIDN'T MATTER! It was a lot of fun, and seeing all the planning, and such come to fruition was really satisfying. But most importantly, it made me so happy to know I was marrying someone who loved me for me! I stopped believing I'd ever be married at an early age, so it was a complete shock when I got engaged, and TBH I was nervous all they up until the day before the wedding. But that morning came, and I woke up with a smile that lasted all day (heck, thinking about it makes my cheeks ache lol!). Nothing was able to bug me that day.

Anyway, I know that list is random af, but, that's what I've got! LOL!

What are some of your happiest moments?

Week 2: Favorite Characters from Books, TV, Movies, and Games

This week's list is a bit tough, so I decided to pick my top character from 5 categories:

  • Book Character- Thursday Next (Thursday Next Series by Jasper Fforde)

    • Thursday has my dream jobs, both in SpecOps 27 as a Literary Detective, and Jurisfiction, the jurisdiction that polices fiction.

    • Video Game Character- a tie between Lara Croft (Tomb Raider); Cammy (Super Street Fighter II); and Villager (Animal Crossing).

      • I could NEVER choose one. #SorryNotSorry

      • Lara- ARCHEOLOGY!!!

      • Cammy- The first fighter I "mastered" in the game lol

      • Villager-Animal Crossing FOREVER!!!

      • TV character- Buffy (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

        • This took some serious thinking, but, I can always go back to Sunnydale. Buffy was a lot of things I wanted to be/looked up to. She was strong, special, a bad-ass, liked people for who they were, and was an ever growing woman. She also enjoyed the simplicity of a normal life...but she didn't live one. I enjoyed the show because I think we all wanted to be special, but Buffy also uniquely made me think of the burden you would bare with super powers. Some comic characters did that too, but Buffy came about at the right time (high school) for me to fully understand that concept, as she and I were in the same place.

        • Cartoon- G.I.R. (Invader Zim)

          • I have a tattoo of him. LOL! But, I loved the character since the show premiered in 2001! He's a bit goofy, sings his own made up songs, is obsessed with food, and is adorable! Also, he's a robot, so, why not?!

          • Comics-Fone Bone (Bone by Jeff Smith)

            • He has such a sunny disposition, and always tries to do what's right. Also, Bone was one of the first comics I collected (er, tried to collect) as a kid. It will always be special to me!

This week seemed like it was just for a few bullet points. Also, these types of posts are difficult to me because I want to go on and on, but...not make it too long lol!

52 Lists: Week 1-Goals and Dreams for 2016

I thought I'd try a new goal this week, thanks in part to Mindi (aka Lady Serpentine) inspired me with this post about Goals + Dreams. She had a link to "52 Lists Project" on Amazon and I decided that this year I would try to follow it!

52 Lists

Goals + Dreams
1. Do the 52 Lists!(LOL)

2. Another goal this year is to relax. I'm 99% likely to be moving again thanks to military life, and while I'm looking forward to somewhere new...I'm also scared s**t-less of it. I'll be moving again. Starting over again. Looking for new things to do in a new city..AGAIN. I'm hoping we get to move to one city in particular...but I won't know until the end of next month. Here's to not getting tense about it.

3. Owning a home! The next place we go to, is probably going to be a place we'll live for a LONG time. So we're hoping to own a place. More on that as life goes on.

4. Make a cosplay! I don't think this will happen until after SDCC though. But I want to sit and make Olive from Gotham Academy's skirt so I can cosplay her. Also, I plan on keeping my hair like hers all year! Which leads to...

5. Stay blonde, go more platinum!!!

6. Keep up with working out and lose some weight! I'm already researching things for where we may go next, including gyms and pools. Especially pools! Also Roller Derby and Water Polo because I figure teams would be a great way to meet new friends and help me stick with the commitment!

7. Sync and use my planners. Nuff said, eh?

8. Read more.

What are some of your goals and dreams for this year?
