2017 was amazing & Blah all at the same time For Me.
Yes, I accomplished many goals I had set for myself but my life still lacked that “Spunk” I desperately needed. Creating my guide for my "Best Year Ever" I had to reflect on my past year. After reflecting & looking back I begin to become depressed. My 2017 was Blah, boring & completely dull. It was then I vowed to not only make 2018 my best year ever but I vowed to never have another dull, boring, BLAH year!
I have this amazing woman I follow on Instagram by the name of Karina.

I love Karina's instagram & blog. Karina's bucketlist is amazing & what actually inspired me to want to create one for my family & myself. Watching Karina travel with friends or alone seems amazing. Karina's bucketlist is filled with fun, adventueous things & she's totally crossing off items off her list.
My name is Karina and I’m 27 years old. I'm adventurous but I was a late bloomer so my travel experience didn't begin until 2014 with a family trip to the mountains. I’m an advocate for the homeless by day and an aspiring bucket list blogger by night. As a Homeless Services Coordinator with a local non-profit, I collaborate with agencies that provide services to individuals experiencing homelessness. This means that I have the best job ever! Every day, I go to work knowing that I am the voice for people who are often overlooked in our communities. Though I am passionate about advocating for the homeless and educating the community on issues surrounding homelessness, it can be very stressful so I spend my weekends relaxing if I'm not traveling.I currently live in Columbia, SC. I love Columbia but it’s pretty boring (or maybe I'm the boring one) so I enjoy traveling to other places when I need my fix of excitement and spontaneity. I love traveling! Did I mention I love traveling?! I'd love to be able to integrate my passion for ending homelessness and traveling into a job that provides a steady income. For now, I have a full-time job that typically doesn’t include traveling to a secluded island whenever I please. I did not win the lottery and my parents aren’t rich. I am just an awesomely adventurous 27-year old who happens to be an aspiring bucket list blogger.
