Twelve the Hard Way, Then Vacay

We told you this season will be fresh and full of surprises, and we promise to stay true to our word. So let it be known: THE GOOD AND TERRIBLE SHOW IS GOING ON VACATION! And we want you to come with us. On October 21, 2018 we will set sail from Barcelona on a 7-day Western Mediterranean Cruise. Tune into this week’s Good and Terrible Show for details about the cruise, and check out our show notes for contact information. I’ve never been across the pond, so this is a big deal for me.

The opportunity to cross this bucket list item off the list has made us think of the host of other items we have on our lists. Rather than spending the next fifteen months with tunnel vision on our trip, Ceej have made a pact with each other to spend the time in between living fully, and pursuing other bucket list items, which we’ve labeled #GnTDirtyDozen! We selected twelve items that nurture our souls, sate our urge for adventure, and help us grown on purpose and in our purpose within the next fifteen months.

So begin the journey with us on July 15, 2017 (the date that the $50 cruise deposit is due), and create a #GnTDirtyDozen of your own. Email us or tweet us using the hashtag #GnTDirtyDozen and share encouragement or note your progress. Commit to rewarding yourself at the end of this with a beautiful Western Mediterranean Cruise and lots of laughs and memorable experiences.

My #GnTDirtyDozen, in no particular order, is:

  1. Watch Menace II Society in its entirety.
  2. Go ziplining.
  3. Read 70 books.
  4. Learn to swim.
  5. Put my name in the byline of a major publication.
  6. Bake a lattice top apple pie.
  7. Take my kids to Disneyland. (Yes. We’re all grown and we all want to go.)
  8. Learn French.
  9. Lose 75 lbs.
  10. Help make Universal Fan Con a success.
  11. Sew half of my winter wardrobe.
  12. Meditate regularly and (re)develop a free and open heart.
