My Summer 2015 Bucket List

2014 was a good year for me. A great year. And so far 2015 has been more of the same.

But this summer? THIS SUMMER?  Yolo at its finest.  All carefree Black girl, questionable decision, good times greatness.

When I had brunch with my friend Jana recently, I realized while I expect the summer to be full of surprises, there are a few things I want to make sure I do. So, without further ado, I present to you, my Summer 2015 Bucket List (so far).

Me, Costa Rica, Summer 2014

1. The Beach
I want to go to the beach SO bad.  Initially only Belize and Panama were on the list, but now I'll take it anyway that I can get it.  I have smaller dreams of Cancun or Cozumel, but Rehoboth or Ocean City will do. Just sand and sun and water, please!

2. Brooklyn Museum
To be clear, NYC is one of my least favorite places to visit.  But the Brooklyn Museum has been on my radar for awhile and today I was reminded just how badly I need to see it.  I hope to get up there for one of the upcoming Target First Saturdays events, and I'm especially looking forward to the upcoming "Rise of Sneaker Culture" exhibit.  I might have to go twice ;)

3. Swim lessons
I learned how to swim as a child, but never up to the efficiency level that would make it worthwhile for a true workout in the water.  My local parks and rec department offers lessons for the low and soon I won't be able to use my hair as an excuse to take a class because...

4. A haircut
I love the locs but it's time for them to go. I'm ready.  Appointment made.  Countdown begun.

So what about you? What do you want to make sure you take care of this summertime?
