My End-of-Summer Bucket List

The end of summer is coming, yet there’s still so many things I want to do. I know for a lot of us, the heat has been so overbearing that we’ve had to stay inside. Things are cooling off, which makes outside activities easier without dying in the heat and humidity. So, here are some things that are on my bucket list for the end of summer.

Get Outside More

I’m ready to get out of the building and do some activities! I know that I’m going to start getting ready for Paint Louis. For this, I need to start sketching out some ideas. People will be painting my name on the wall, which is very humbling experience and an awesome thing to watch.

I want to spend some more time outside, meditate in the park or have lunch with my friends. There are fewer restrictions right now in terms of COVID, so I can enjoy a meal out.

Paint for Crowds

Another thing on my bucket list I would like to accomplish is to do some outside painting and paint for some crowds of people. It’s been such a long time since I have been able to go to an Abilities Expo, much less interact with mass amounts of people. It’s so satisfying for people to see me paint and it’s satisfying for me to paint for them. Let’s hope it happens and the weather cooperates. If it’s too hot the paint dries up and the canvas becomes a sticky mess. So, the art doesn’t come out the way you want it to.

Travel to Chicago

I would also like to fly to Chicago before the end of summer to meet some friends. It will be nice to get out of St. Lewis for a weekend.  out there and enjoy the weekend out of St louis.

Have a great rest of the summer!
