20 Things I Care More About Than The Kardashians Being Pregnant

20 Things I Care More About Than The Kardashians Being Pregnant

Really, like we need more of them?

1. What am I going to read next?

I really want to read "And Then There Were None" by Agatha Christie, but "Alias Grace" is dropping on Netflix soon and I want to read the book before I watch it.

2. When can I trade in my shorts for sweaters?

The first few weeks of September were beautifully stormy and chilly Halloween weather. Then, all of a sudden, it’s feeling like July again. WTF Mother Nature!?

3. Howard and Bernadette’s second baby.

Halley and Wally would be really cute siblings names, don’t you think?

4. Sheldon and Amy’s wedding.

I REALLY hope they don’t drag this engagement out for too long.

5. How many times a week should I wash my hair?

I sweat in my sleep and my hair is all greasy in the morning. But if I over wash it, my hair gets brittle.

6. What if the bee I squashed last week has friends out for revenge?

I woke up with bug bites on my leg so now I fear for my safety….

7. Should I take up Zumba again?

Of course, to do that I would actually have to get to the gym first.

8. Those affected by the recent hurricanes in Florida and Puerto Rico.

Unless Kylie Jenner’s baby is the Messiah destined to protect the world from natural disasters, I don’t care.

9. Should I shave my legs today?

I mean, I only shaved two days ago, but I already feel the prickles. I worry people might notice.

10. What am I going to be for Halloween?

I could either dress up as Ariel or wear this stunning purple dress from Torrid with Jack Skellington’s face stitched all over the velvet. Decisions, decisions...

11. If Spencer Reid leaves "Criminal Minds," I am done.

Derek is gone, Hotch is gone, and I don’t like where this season is going so far.

12. Am I going to get that job I applied for?

If I touch Kylie Jenner’s belly, do I get a wish? No? Then, never mind….

13. I need to get some new clothes at Dress Barn.

My coupons expire soon!

14. I have to make sure I don’t step in goose poop on my next walk.

I swear my street is like an active land mine of goose poop.

15. How should I organize my bookshelves?

I’ve bought so many new books these past few months, I’m running out of room on my shelves and it’s sad.

16. When can I buy books again?

I want all the books! But my bank account said no…

17. When am I going to get over this creative writer’s block?

It’s starting to become annoying.

18. What will I study at Simmons College (if I am accepted)?

Library science with an archives concentration or children’s literature and writing for children?

19. Picking a professor to write me a recommendation letter for graduate school applications out of the half-dozen I immediately thought of that would gladly write one.

Yeah, I know. My life is sooo tragic, it’s pathetic. #firstworldproblems

20. What do I write next for Odyssey ?

Because, you know, that’s always a priority.

22 New Things That I Want To Try Now That I'm 22

A bucket list for my 22nd year.


"I don't know about you but I'm feelin' 22," I have waited 6 long years to sing that and actually be 22! Now 22 doesn't seem like a big deal to people because you can't do anything that you couldn't do before and you're still super young. But I'm determined to make my 22nd year a year filled with new adventures and new experiences. So here's to 22.

1. Go sky diving.

What's crazier than jumping out of a plane? (Although I'll probably try indoor skydiving first.)

2. Go cliff jumping/diving.

I must be the only Rhode Islander who hasn't gone to Jamestown and jumped off a cliff.

3. Ride in a hot air balloon.

Up, up and away.

4. Try out skiing.

Cash me in the next Olympics, how bout dat.

5. Try out snow boarding.

Shawn White, I'm coming for you.

6. Go bungee jumping.

Because at least this time I'll be attached to something.

7. Go to Portugal.

I mean I'm Portuguese so I have to go at some point, right?

8. Go to Cape Verde.

Once again, I'm Cape Verdean so I have to go.

9. Vist one of the seven wonders of the world.

I mean hey, Egypt's on, my bucket list.

10. Try out surfing.

It's only natural that somebody from the Ocean State knows how to surf.

11. Learn a new langauge.

Because my little bit of Portuguese, Spanish and Latin isn't cutting it anymore.

12. Travel to a state that I've never been to before.

Fun fact: I've only been to 17 of the 50 states.

13. Go paddle boarding.

Pretty boring but I've never done it.

14. Go scuba diving.

I'm from the Ocean State so I guess I should see the ocean up close and personal.

15. Learn how to line dance.

There's actually a barn in my state that does line dancing, so this one will definitely get crossed off.

16. Go kayaking.

All this water around me and I haven't done a lot of the water activites.

17. Stay the night in a haunted hotel room.

I bet if I got my friends to come with me, it would be like the Suite Life of Zach and Cody episode, minus the ghost coming out of the wall but you never know.

18. Get my palms read.

Because who doesn't want to know their future.

19. Go to a medium.

Like a medium that can communicate with people that have died.

20. Take a helicopter ride.

Air plane: check Helicopter:....

21. Sleep under the stars.

Because sleeping in a tent is more like glamping than camping

22. Just to try new things in my everyday life.

Whether it's trying a new restaurant, getting something different at my usual restaurants, changing my usual style, going on the scary rides at amusement parks, and bringing things I used to do back into my life now.
