Bucket List

Salutations my fellow internet dwellers! I'm very sorry for posting this so late but the internet at my brothers place went wacky. Now, you will learn over the course of this journey that i love making lists. I am constantly making a list: a To Do list, Wish list, things I love list (which you will see later) and this one. This will be the list of things I would like to do before I die. I will use pictures because..well...it's far more amusing that way. So here are a few things I want to do before I die:
I would be the second one in my family to do so. Plus, that would be one less thing I have to stress about!

I used to want to be a dolphin trainer and work at Seaworld when I was younger. That dream has faded yet I would still love to swim beside these amazing creatures.

I have already traveled quite a bit. I've been to Ecuador, Haiti, Germany, Switzerland, Southern parts of Italy, Greece, and Lichtenstein. I have an itch in my shoes and I doubt it will ever be satisfied.

It looks like so much fun! It's also the only way i'll probably feel like a bird.

I'm a hopeless romantic :)

I've gone on road trips with her but it's always been a max of 4 hours. A LONG road trip is what we need. 

Every girl needs an amazing closet. I'll get one one day.

Ever since I watched Grease as a little girl I've wanted to go.

Seems like something everyone should do. An unforgettable experience.

The memories that will never fade. 

So there is just a glimpse of my bucket list, so far. What about you, my dear Internet dwellers? What is on your bucket list? Until next time dearies!

Someday My Prince Will Come

Salutations! This post is one I've been so excited to write about that I'm not even sure how articulate it will end up being but I will try my best. By the title you should be able to surmise what I want to write about but if not- my dream man. My Prince Charming. My future man must be like the men below.

Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice

OR

Mr. Thornton from BBC North and South

I understand that they are fictional characters and that someone created them, however; they aren't perfect. I do not seek a perfect man, I'm simply searching for a gentleman which, nowadays, is as difficult to find. I am not saying that there aren't any out there but they aren't as prevalent as they were during the twentieth century. I also get questioned why I like THESE men, particularly Darcy. He's written out to be rude and socially unacceptable and that he is- at first glance anyways. I fell in love with him because he stood by his word and followed a moral code. Just like Mr. Thornton, who is very similar to Mr. Darcy except he was a bit rougher around the edges since he was not born into aristocracy. He believed in honesty, hard work and knowledge. Yes, I want a real man to be like two fictional ones but it is not like I'm asking him to be a vampire and fight over me with a werewolf.  They are human beings with qualities any man could have if he wanted to and will have to have to win me over. 

I have high standards, I do. I will not lower them because they are "unattainable" or "too much to ask for" because they aren't. Perhaps it's a bit old-fashioned of me but I am old-fashioned and I will always be that way. I have made awful decisions- settled when I knew it was wrong and did things I am ashamed of, however; it's gotten me here. Because of what I've been through I know what I want and know what I definitely do NOT want. I'm done with Peter Pans and Lost Boys. I'm beyond ready for the Mr.Darcy or Mr. Thornton to come and I know he will, someday.
