Summer 2012

Photography by Najee Omar (I think)

As you may know, I do not have an actual job this summer. Long story short, God told me to rest, write, and leap into womanhood. So that’s what I’ve been doing…or trying to. After a month of a relatively uneventful summer, I realized that my time is limited. This could be my last summer as I know it so I made a bucket list.

(Inspired by’s 100 life goals)

Writing out my life goals is a bit extreme right now so I’ll stick to 2 months worth of plans 🙂 Let me know if you would like to join me on any of my adventures. I’ll be blogging about each outing worthy of a post!

*The lines in color have been conquered!
