20 at 20 Update

I turned 21 on July 16th - last Thursday.
Last year for my birthday, I put together a bucket list of 20 things that I wanted to do before I turned 21. In just one year, I didn't get to do all of them, but I did get a good portion completed. And it was lots of fun!  :D  Here's the updated/completed list.

1)  Make new friends.
2) Complete Level 3 Freestyle with Lady (solid).  FAIL. I didn't get to ride as much as I needed to.
3) Act on stage.  Not quite yet, but our show opens in 2 weeks, so close enough.
4) Laugh every day.  I did a million times better. :)
5) Write a third novel.  Kind of? I'm in the process of writing it now.
6) Pay for a drink for the person behind me at a drive-thru.  I didn't write down the date though.
7) Try out a new instrument.  FAIL.
8) Learn how to dance.  I don't do much out in public, but I can dance now!
9) Get my health back.  Not perfect, but well on the road to it.
10) Visit Europe.  February 11th, 2015 through March 25th, 2015 was spent abroad. 
11) Take riding/jumping lessons.  One in January 2015 and one in April 2015.
12) Eat vegetarian for 28 days.  June 2015
13) Have a party.  Christmas 2014.
14) Try a new language/learn basic phrases.  Very basic French and Italian.
15) Go see live horse racing.  November 22nd, 2014 at Zia Park and January 19th, 2015 at Oaklawn.
16) Go to the beach.  The Mediterranean Sea doesn't count, so FAIL.
17) Help/volunteer at a horse show/event.  FAIL.
18) Ride/work with as many horses as possible.  FAIL.
19) Start writing with 1-3 penpals.  FAIL.
20) Try a new art medium.  I played around with pen drawings.
So.... 13 out of 20 or around 65% complete?  Not bad!

I'll probably make up a 30 before 30 list soon too.  Except that I don't want to think about being 30 yet...


  1. This is hilarious. I am 74, working on a sandbucket list. A sandbucket is a small bucket that a li'l kid takes to the beach. I don't have that much time.

  2. haha happy bday! and uh, i think the Mediterranean definitely counts for going to the beach ;)

  3. Ack, I am WAY closer to 30 than you and I don't want to think about it either!! Hahaha
