My Bucket List

My Bucket List

I’ve had a crazy week so far and haven’t had time to properly prepare for today’s post. So this post has had no fore-thought, it’s completely spontaneous, and it’ll probably be kinda short. Oops! Such is life! 😉

I’ve decided to take a break from the blogging challenge for this week. I’ve been thinking a lot about my future and what I would like to be doing. I came up with so many ideas that I figured why not make a post about it! I’ll only include a few things for now, but let’s get started!

What If…

WHAT IF

Another day on my blogging challenge! Is it day 4? I think it’s day 4.

Today’s topic is “what if.” Everyone has at least one “what if” scenario they think about. I have some of my own.

Like this one, what if I fall..?

It may sound silly to some, but tripping over my own two feet is kind of the norm for me. Everywhere I go, I wonder what in the world I will do if I fall. How do you pick yourself up from that? Especially in public?! #awkward

Top 5 Pet Peeves // New Blog Name

top 5 pet peeves

I CHANGED MY TITLE!!! Did that come out in all caps??? Oops! I get excited about these things, okay?! Haha! I was having MAJOR doubts about my blog name, so I talked it over with a friend and I’ve decided to change it from “A Modest Soul” to “Quite Simply Annie”. I just don’t think that the original title really expressed my blog content very well and “Quite Simply Annie” is nice and short and chic and I like it a lot better. 🙂

Enough rambling.. on to the post! 😉

You know how some things just really get on your nerves? Like to the point where you want to pull out all of your hair? Or to the point where you’re ready to just throw in the towel? Yup, me too! Here are my top 5 pet peeves! Continue reading

How I Almost Died

That Time I Almost Died (1)

For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to be able to swim and for as long as I can remember I’ve never learned. I have trust issues with people in the water. I don’t believe when my friends tell me they won’t let go. This is my life, my only life, and I just can’t risk it to be able to say I went in the deep end, ya know?

My inability to swim is definitely one of the reasons I don’t go to the beach frequently. I also don’t have my own pool. I’m poor, okay, I can’t afford a pool. But I still love the water.

People tend to be shocked though when I tell them I’ve only been to the beach like 4 times in my life. It’s okay, you’re just in shock. Remember to breathe. Better? Good, let’s go on. Continue reading
