  2. 2.
    Complete my California Bucket List.
    A mini bucket list I began a few years ago just for California. Update: Why did I even add this? There's no way I can finish that in one year however, I don't have much left and need to update that one too!!
  3. 3.
    Go back to school and finish my degree so I can continue with my education all the way to doctorate.
    Does ballet class count? Otherwise we'll have to wait on this one.

    I'd like to set down love this year. I'm not giving up nor losing hope but instead, no more trying. I'm just going to be me and not search consciously for the time being.
    Update: And you find out that love happens when you least expect it. But I've had to set it back down so I'm waiting till July to mark this one. I still want - need to stay focused, actually.
