    One look at my ever-growing bucket list should tell you that I still have quite a few places to cross off. Although I don’t have any current plans (or funds) to explore internationally, I do look for any and every opportunity to adventure locally. For me, Fresno, California is local. When I heard of the ice cream train to Hanford, I knew I had to discover this destination for myself. Enjoying ice cream the size of…

    When I picture the perfect weekend, I see sun, sand, and the whole family splashing together in the waves. By the”whole family,” of course I mean pets too! What better way to unwind than hitting the dog beach. What is a Dog Beach? Before you go frolicking with Fido, beware that not all beaches allow pets.

I prefer simple, hard-to-fail goals such as “graduate” or “see the world.” In fact, I never bothered to update my five-year plan since completing the former.
