If you haven’t noticed, I haven’t posted in a while, and I apologize for that. I took a brief hiatus while school, swimming, and rush (gag me) got underway and now I am back with a vengeance, equipped with a new and I think rather exciting idea for the direction I want this blog go in.
If you are just joining me, so far this blog has been pretty much about random things that interest me or that I have done.
This summer, having lived in Houston for a bit and going on a few vacations, I had the luxury and time to experience lots of cool, new, and interesting things.
Now I am back to the grind in the good ole’ Baton Rouge for my senior year (WHAT?!).
Having lived in Baton Rouge my entire life I have become pretty accustomed to hearing phrases like “BR is seaux boring,” or “The only thing here is football.”
Now I’m not going to lie, I have probably said those exact words myself at one point in my life. I’m not going to pretend that Baton Rouge is anything like Chicago or Houston. But having observed my surroundings a little more closely these past few months I have realized that there are actually a lot of things to do down here in South Louisiana, a lot of Baton Rouge staples that I haven’t gotten around to seeing/eating/experiencing in my 21 years. There are also plenty of things I have done here that I would like to do again before I graduate and potentially leave Baton Rouge for a while.
So… I have decided that I am going to get up off the couch and see what’s out there.
I created a bucket list with my BFF, roommate, and fellow senior Kyra Jones. We want to use this list to ensure that we get the most out of our last year in the Red Stick, to challenge us to try new things, to provide us with a small relief from our often monotonous schedules as collegiate student athletes, to make us stop eating at the same college town restaurants for every meal, stop going to the same seedy bars every single night out, and to encourage us to truly take in the culture that BRLA and the surrounding areas are overflowing with.
The list isn’t too long. It isn’t too short. We think it is actually achievable in 8 months time.
Each time we check something off the bucket list ( and we have made some progress already) I will post about it on this here blog! If I find something else that I thought was bucket list worthy I will post it here as well.
If I start slacking, all of you 25 followers better hold me accountable!
Click the link below to read the list. We are pretty happy with it. I’ll let y’all know how it goes and if you have any suggestions, recommendations, possible amendments, or would like to join us on any of our escapades please comment below 🙂
