By the time you’re reading this, I’ll be 2 days away from course end! We made it! Two classes was extremely ambitious and borderline stupid. I’m certain without a supportive family, awesome coworkers, and snow days I wouldn’t have survived with what little sanity I have remaining. Not much!
The upcoming Blue Bell Fun Run is on my bucket list. Maybe in 2025.
Speaking of 2025 – we were, were we not? – I received the commencement date if all plans go well and I’m done when I plan to be. May 10, 2025. Otherwise, I guess I wait until the following year? I couldn’t find information for multiple ceremonies so I guess they only hold graduation once a year. Either way, it was exciting to read about the upcoming graduation ceremony and the information to help students order their regalia, etc. Turns out you can rent or buy doctoral regalia. Probably for other degrees, too. I’m leaning towards buying it so I can wear it around the house as a robe, or a winter coat, or to very formal events at work, like change of command. I’ll just sashay in waving the robe hem around like royalty, yelling THE DOCTOR HAS ARRIVED. This should go over well.
While I’m daydreaming about my own gloriousness, let’s take it one step further and commit to running 3 destination runs post-graduation. I’m not very interested in the half marathon distance at the moment, but perhaps I will be then. Or I could just run to run. Or take 3 vacations. I’m on it today!
Lastly, on the topic of daydreaming, mini is set on getting a dog. Nevermind that she has one in Tennessee. She believes she absolutely needs one in Texas, too. I told her to wait until her dad moves here but she didn’t like that answer. For now, I’ve placated her with we’ll discuss it more next Valentine’s Day. Why Valentine’s Day? I don’t have an answer. I was just desperate to say something noncommittal and here we are.
I’d like to return to my non-anxiety inducing daydreams now. Please excuse me. Where was I? Oh yes, vacations.
I ask you –
Have you run any races lately? Do tell!
How often do you daydream?
Tell me about your bucket list!

Do you have places in mind for your 3 destination races?
I have an insane number of places on my bucket list. Maybe if I live to be 100 I’ll be able to visit them all!
Absolutely! San Diego, an island race, and maybe somewhere in the Northeast. What are your top 3?

I love San Diego- it’s so beautiful there! I ran my half for California there. Top 3 destination races for me is a tough one. I’d love to start running half marathons in Canada so I guess I’d say Vancouver, Quebec, and Prince Edward Island.
Canada would be wonderful!

My bucket list includes writing a book, and I am on it! I’m collecting stories from my blog into book form. I have wanted to do this, in some form or other, all my life.
What a fantastic idea!
