Live a Day in Royalty

For my last writing assignment for this week, I decided to When and Where would you live. For this assignment, I wanted to connect it to our theme of the 80s. This is when I decided I would think about what my life would be if I grew up in royalty in the 80s. I decided that I would choose to live in the Buckingham Palace as if I was related to the queen of England.

First I want to find a good picture of the Buckingham Place to show everyone where I would be living for this assignment.

The reason I decided to pick this place to live in the 1980s was because ever since I was a little girl, I have always thought about what it would be like to be born into royalty and what would be like to grow up in that type of spotlight.

When I started thinking about what it would be really like growing up in royalty, I realized that I probably would be as great as I thought it would be as a little girl. I would be in the spot light all the time, and I think I would feel like I would not be able to make a mistake. I think I would be a lot harder than I first thought it would be.

On another note, I do think it would be fun to see everything that would be going on behind the scenes. Like all the drama that the general public does not get to see. I think if I lived in the Buckingham Palace in the 1980s I would be running around trying to see all that was happening with everyone and learning everything there is to know about being royalty.

I really enjoyed being able to tap into my creative side and go back to something I used to dream about as a little girl!

Dear Future Husband

Something I think about pretty often is who my future husband is. I have been meaning to start writing letters to said husband for a while but always put it off, so when I saw that one of the assignments that I could do for this week was to write a letter to my future husband I was super excited.

I sat down at my desk and started writing. I talk about how it was crazy that I do not know who will receive this letter one day and how I could already of met him when writing the letter.

I also talk about the hopes and desires that I have for him and for our future relationship. I talk about how I want him to keep me adventurous and that I hope we never stop exploring the world together.

I know that some people post exactly what they write in the letter during this assignment, but I decided that I wanted this letter to only be read by my future husband. I feel like this is a very special and emotional thing that I want to only share with that one special person. But here is a picture of the letter in the envelope.

I really enjoyed this assignment (it was probably my favorite that I have done so far) and it will be something that I think I’m going to start doing on a semi-regular basis.

No Limits

I have some many things that I have want to do in the future that when I saw that creating a bucket list could be one of my assignments, I was so excited to be able to write them all down! I am so excited to travel and experience so many different things in my life so I am going to list my top 10 that I have not done yet and still want to experience. This is not in any type of order!

  1. Skydiving (planning on going with my roommate this spring)
  2. Travel around Europe (kind of like backpacking)
  3. Go on a mission trip
  4. Go to all 50 states
  5. Visit Australia (Literally my dream vacation)
  6. Go to a Late Night TV Taping (Preferably James Cordon)
  7. Go on a wild life safari
  8. Go up in a hot air ballon
  9. See all 8 wonders of the world (I have already seen The Colosseum)
  10. Touch 6 out of 7 Continents and swim in 4 out of 5 Ocean (Probably my number 1)

I had a lot of fun being able to finally write out some of the things that are on my mental bucket list!

Snail Mail

The assignment Letter From Out of the Blue was the first assignment that I decided to do for this week! I was so excited when I saw that this was one of the assignments that I would be able to do this week. I tend to write letters with a lot of my friends that live far away because I think it such a sweet form of communication. I think communication through texting or other social media platforms can feel impersonal.

I decided that for this assignment I would write a letter to one of my friends, Olivia. I met Olivia this summer while working at a camp. We became very close friend really fast and it has been really sad going back to our normal lives. She lives in Kentucky so I have not seen Olivia since this summer and I decided that she would be perfect to write a letter out of the blue.

I got a cute card, that I already had in my desk and started writing. The letter contain a bunch of me updating her on my life and what has been going on and asking her questions about her life in Kentucky.

I had a lot of fun with this assignment and getting to connect with an old friend!
