Before ending this post, I wanted to mention some of my bucket list worthy life events.
1. The Birth of my Godson. My godson is an awesome person. I don’t remember him not being a part of my life. To see his mom give birth to him, through all the ups and downs of her pregnancy, was one of the most awe inspiring moments of my life. This was definitely, for me, a moment of knowing without a shadow of doubt, God is Real and He is Able.
2. Chocolate Covered Crickets. In my sophomore year’s Intro to Communication Class, a fellow classmate did a presentation of what her grandfather business was- Chocolate Covered Crickets. I ate 2– It tasted just like chicken (I kid, I kid.) Honestly, it tasted like in my opinion, like the candy, Nestle Crunch.
3. Big Chop. I was a natural girl my entire childhood and in my senior yr of high school, I got a relaxer. For the most part, I was in love with my relaxed hair and the closest I thought I would ever have my hair back in its natural state was new growth ( I actually had a similar Facebook status). Two of my closest friends had recently gone the natural route and then they double teamed me and said that I should join them. My first response– sideeye. However, I decided to weigh my pros and cons and I was like why not, if I don’t like it, I can relax again whenever I want to. I have to say this was on the most freeing things I’ve ever done in my adult life. I love my natural hair and I love how I feel with natural hair.
4. Calf Testicles. One of my older brothers used to work on a farm and once a year, the farmer would have to do away with a bull’s testicles, for whatever reason unbeknownst to me. They have been a delicacy in the George Household before and I have to say they are quite tasty and has the consistency of eating liver or more like chicken gizzards.
What are some items on your bucket list? Have you crossed any of them off yet?
Until Next Time,
