I feel so accomplished every time I cross something off of my bucket list, no matter how stupid or silly they are. Number 13 on my list is “Walk to the Hollywood Hills Sign,” and this was completed on January 1, 2013. My mother, sister and I made the trek up the hill with a wonderful view of the city and saw the sign as close as we legally are able to. Number 58, “Go to a karaoke bar,” was completed the day before, on December 31, 2012. My mother, sister and I are in California for a month; I may or may not have mentioned this. I turned twenty-one about a week ago and being here with my little sister and mom I didn’t think I would have any fun celebrating. I figured I’d celebrate when I get home (which I still will.) A long time friend of the family’s niece lives out here and I’ve known her since I was in elementary school. She is a singer and goes to karaoke bars and she took me to one that she goes to. I had a couple of shots and a drink before being dragged up to the stage when it was my turn (seriously her friend had to get me moving I was so nervous.) I first sang “Amen” by Edens Edge and then I sang “Gunpowder & Lead” by Miranda Lambert. I definitely feel better about going out to karaoke bars with my friend when I get home. It was kind of a lot of fun— nerve wracking, but fun.
