Completing this goal last month was a total surprise...well, obviously, as it was to take a spontaneous trip! Haha. Anyway, the bassist from the band I sing with went to the beach in North Carolina for vacation...and the day after he left I was hanging out with our guitarist and somehow - after several shots of Fireball and a lot of coaxing from the guys - I ended up in Atlantic Beach for two days. It was...an interesting trip, to say the least.
Somehow I didn't even get any pictures, but I snagged this one from the guitarist (it needed to be edited anyway). So there ya go. :)
I could have cheated on this a bit and claimed to have finished it before this...either by listing Boston/Cambridge or Savannah as a place I've loved, or counting the numerous trips I've made to Orlando and Vegas since starting my 101 in 1001 list. But I didn't cheat, so there ya go!
I love Orlando for the friends who live there and for the memories I have of and make at Disney World...

|Not gonna lie, I'm buddies with Buzz Lightyear ;)|
|Wine sippers! haha, I don't know.|
I love Vegas for the atmosphere and the crazy stories a trip there always produces...
|Girls trip to Vegas!|

And I love Charleston for, well, everything about it :)

Apparently Steve decided that his three movies all needed to be Clint Eastwood movies...heh.
I actually liked Unforgiven...I mean, it's not going to be a favorite movie of mine, but it was decent. To be honest I've never been one for Westerns, so there's that.
And having never been one for Westerns...well, The Good The Bad & The Ugly was just a bit much for me. It was *so* darn long and I feel as if nothing ever happened. I suppose I can understand the cinematic appeal of it, but I refuse to say I liked a movie simply because everyone says I should like it ;) And yeah, this goal was probably the only way Steve ever could have gotten me to watch this movie...haha.
Lastly, Gran Torino was one of those movies that I've always meant to see...and just never gotten around to seeing. For no particular reason, because I'd pretty much heard nothing but good things about it. Of the three this was definitely the one I liked the most, though of course it was quite depressing (and to be honest depressing movies aren't exactly something I need right now, ugh).
Originally this goal was to switch back for 3 months, but at some point I must have edited it? I think that was because the last time I had a hoop nose ring I had some problems with it, and that's why I switched back to a stud...but whatever those issues were, I'm not having them this time around and I'm loving the change-up. So I'm thinking the hoop will stay around for a while ;)
|For whatever reason, this is the ONLY picture I have from the past month-ish where you can clearly see that I'm wearing a hoop nose ring. Ah well! :)|
