My Bucket List

Quickly look at the list below and see if you can find the one thing I crossed off this year…


Got it? It was “Learn how to ski”! I cut it very close this year and waited til 12/27 to finally boot up and carve some powder in Killington, VT. To be completely honest, I really enjoyed it. I wasn’t all that good and did not leave the bunny hill but am hoping to improve in 2018.

My only story is that after a few “runs”, we decided it was too cold to continue (negative temperatures in Killington) and said we’d do one last before heading to the lodge for food/drinks. I was going down and felt so cocky that I quickly learned how to move/turn (whatever you want to call it) from left to right, and was confident in my ability to stop, even if pizza-ing. So I’m almost at the base and I’m thinking to myself, I can’t wait to tell everyone that I didn’t fall my first time skiing! “Everybody falls”, they said, well not me! Ok I’m just gunna go by this little kid and then we’ll be done… Buddy- get out of the way! Shit he is not moving. *looks down at skis* pizza! Don’t cross your skis! Welp, now my skis are crossed. I’m gunna bundle this kid. So I just kind of fell to my side because I crossed my skis and was afraid I was going to hit the little kid. I was so pissed at myself, but I guess that’s what I get. Then it took me probably 5 minutes to get up because I was laughing and just couldn’t do it without thinking I’d fall right back down. Oh well, skiing was still a lot of fun and expect to see me out there again! Might even try snowboarding sometime.

As for everything else on this list, do your part and help me cross something off this year! Also, I could go for a few more recommendations to add so let me know!
