4. I have an active imagination.  I grew up in the country and when I was a kid, I had all sorts of adventures outside.  I acted out elaborate plots and entertained myself for hours.  Those days were so carefree.

5.   I love baking bread.

Five Questions from Sizi at Sizi Says

1. How did you get started with your blog?

I turned 24 about a month ago and it got me thinking about all the things I want to do in my life.  I decided to write a “before I turn 30 list” and through my search for things to put on said list, I came across several bucket list blogs.  I decided that would be the perfect way for me to keep my list organized and updated.  Having followers would also remind me to keep crossing things off.  I used to have a blog when I was in high school and I really enjoyed it.  I’m glad that I’ve started back up!

2. Why do you continue your blog?

My blog is for my bucket list, and I love updating my blog because that means I’m making progress toward my goals!

3. What is your favorite animal (remember, I’m a feline!)?

Cat, of course!  I like dogs, but I’ve always been a cat person at heart.  I have two rescue cats that I adopted last year, and they are the joy of my life.

4. Have you ever considered volunteering for an animal rescue shelter?

I have considered it, and it’s something I would love to do someday.  My only hesitation is that it would make me want to bring home more pets, and considering I only live in a studio apartment, I better stick with just two furbabies for now.  🙂

5. Have you ever corresponded with a feline before!?

This is a first!

My nominations for the Liebster Blog award:

*I am not sure if everyone on my top five have less than 200 followers (#5 on the rules), but I am new to blogging and I’m not sure how to figure that out.  🙂  Regardless, these five blogs are very deserving of this award!

4. If money were no issue, what is the one thing you would like to do most?

5. What is one of your favorite quotes?
