The Road We Travel...

Comes with many dreams and aspirations. Sometimes they are small and sometimes they are life-altering. Sometimes they are trivial or just for fun and sometimes they are serious. Either way, dreams come to us to be fulfilled. We have aspirations to give us meaning in life. Where would we be without our goals to strive towards?

Take A Risk (2)

I want to learn how to snowboard.

This ties into the one about learning to ride a dirt bike. I want to do something that people wouldn't expect me to do.


Take A Risk

I want to learn how to ride a dirt bike.

I don't particularly care if I learn any tricks, I just want to learn how to ride one proficiently. I've never done anything that really involved a risk. I want to be able to put myself out there.

Make a Name

I want to successfully write a novel series and have at least one book featured on the New York Times' Best Seller list.

I have been writing stories since I was eleven. It would be a dream come true to actually get myself published and read.


Memorable Embrace

I want to kiss in the rain.

I know it sounds cliche or like a swift road to pneumonia, but it's on my list. There is just something insanely romantic about getting a hot, steamy kiss in the cold rain.

Cultivate Knowledge (2)

I want to learn Finnish and visit Finland.

I have been obsessed with all things Finnish ever since I discovered HIM. I can already sing a few Disney songs in Finnish, but I don't think that will help me get far if I ever visited the country. It is one of my bigger dreams. I mainly want to visit the capital, Helsinki.


Cultivate Knowledge

I want to learn Italian and eventually, visit Italy.

Italy is a beautiful country with a beautiful language. I want to be able to speak it as fluently as I can. I think it's good to be able to fully immerse yourself in a culture now and then

Come Face to Face with Inspiration

I want to meet the lead singer of my favorite band, HIM, Ville Valo. (And see them in concert)

I fell in love with their music in the 8th grade, and I still love them to this day. Ville's voice is so melodic and just all around inspiring. Not only is he very attractive, he is also a piece of art (in regards to his tattoos) and an amazing singer/writer.

Lose the Fear of Falling

I want to learn how to skateboard and be able to land at least two tricks.

I've had a skateboard for years, but something always holds me back from learning how to ride it. I think it's because I'm scared to death of falling off it. I want to lose that fear, that inhibition, and learn how to be freer.

I want to be able to not fear getting hurt or losing control. There is something amazing about skateboarding. I want to experience that feeling.

Abandoned Beauty

Ever see those old, run-down buildings and look at them with more than just disgust or annoyance? I do. I see them as, yes, slightly in the way, but also as something that adds character. Sometimes, the things we see everyday become mundane in our eyes. Looking at things through a lens sort of gives us a new eye and appreciation of things. With this, not only do I want to do an entire project on "abandoned buildings and such" but I also want to explore them. Look closer, see the details and the smaller things. I want to notice the remnants left behind of previous inhabitors. I want to see the life of these "dead" buildings and appreciate them in the only way they seem to be found useful anymore.

It's just one part of storms but I find it to be the most beautiful part(sometimes). With that said, I have a goal to someday take photos of lightening. Right now, I don't have the equipment or enough knowledge to. But someday, I will have an entire collection of them...


As someone who is absolutely terrified of drowning, it feels odd to think that this is something to add to my list of things to do. Yet, I want to. My school's wellness center is actually taking a trip up to Upper Nolichucky River to go rafting yet it so happens to be on a weekend when I already have plans. So, maybe this would be a sign to some that it's just not meant to be and to not dwell on it anymore yet I find myself wanting to go rafting even more so. So, this is something to plan someday(soon...)
Although, I do admit, this is quite a terrifying image. But maybe someday the chance will arise and I will do it...

"Throw That One In The Bucket"

So, as you may be able to tell, this is a blog about dreams of Bri and Mel. Some of these dreams we both share while others are individual aspirations of our own. Not only will we share them when we come up with them, but we will also share them once completed.
