texas_ashley's Profile:

I'm 22 and fresh out of college, working on becoming a professional animator. Love art and travel, so thats what my list is about. I can be a bit nerdy at times, but I embrace it. I'm also known for using awkward and not so well known vocabulary. It doesn't translate well to type, since I can actually read what I'm saying.




Become a yoga guru
I've tried forever to get into yoga but when you live in a small town where a yoga class is about as scarce as a five star restaurant, its difficult. So this is a long term goal.

Bike through the Loire valley
I know you can bike or horseback ride among all the castles there, and really, doing either one would count as a check for me.

Just one pair. I'm way too frugal to get a whole closet full, and geez, four pairs could pay my way to any where I wanted to go. But I'd like to own just one pair of those designer shoes I love so much....

Eat Beignets and drink Cafe Au Lait at Cafe du Monde, New Orleans


Completed!
They were amaaazing. Ten dollars got us eight beignets and three cups of cafe au lait. It was way crowded but really worth it. And another french market visit added to my life certainly didn't hurt.

Successfully rock climb! With belays and ropes and harnasses.
I'm a victim of the very flat south. I've been happy climbing only in gyms for years now (keeps me in shape at any rate) but I'd LOVE to climb a real, live, not plastic rock face.
