Never Have I Ever…

Never Have I Ever, Choosing Human Linking up with The Circle

Today I decided to do something a little different. I’m linking up with Amanda at The Lady Okie today for the Circle Linkup. This month is not just a theme but a little game of Never Have I Ever, I’ll be including some things that I have done as well so you get to know me a little bit more. I have to say for my age I feel like I’ve done a lot so far in my life. Countless upon countless things I haven’t done yet but this just got me thinking of how fortunate I’ve been.


Never Have I Ever:

+ Been to London // I have gone to Manchester though.

+ Swam through the Great Barrier Reef // I have done extensive swimming through the reefs off the coast of Puerto Rico, including swimming alongside sting rays and sea turtles

+Gone to Disney World or any amusement parks in Florida // I did take my first Spring Break in Florida with Conor and watched him swim with dolphins…the water was too cold for me and I missed out!

+Gone to the West Coast for a vacation // I’ve gone to Portland, OR, San Diego and LA for internships and conferences.

+Flown First Class // I did fly from Germany to Philadelphia with no television and a carry on with only coloring supplies.. I’m an overpacker so I made a promise that trip to pack only necessities, I have unfortunately reverted back to my over packing tendencies after that extremely boring nine hour flight.

+Truly “enjoyed” eating meat // I was a vegan for over 5 years and even when I wasn’t vegan I can’t say I ever enjoyed a steak, I do however really enjoy seafood.

+Gone on a family vacation // we did more outings or day trips, we also lived on Long Island so the beach was always a quick drive away or we had our boat or pool. I was always doing something, just not going on week long vacations.

+Finished reading my entire bookshelf // I don’t think I will ever accomplish this.

+Taken a “tourist approach” to traveling // I am not someone who really plans my trip and packs my days from sunrise to sunset, I enjoy just getting lost in the places I visit. My trip to Rome is a perfect example.

+Taken a real yoga class // I don’t think I ever truly want to, I know what I need to work on and I enjoy my home practice.

+Gotten a full body massage // I’ve only ever gotten hand massages, facials and the occasion back massage from Conor.

+Been great at budgeting // I need to stop spending money and I always find excuses to buy something, I always end up “needing” it but it’s so not true! I’m working on this!!

So here is my Never Have I Ever list. Some things I would like to do and others not so much. Tell me about some things that you never have done and would love to!

    • Thank you! I’m sure it is, maybe I’ll plan a mother daughters day on mothers day for my mom, sister and I. We drive each other nuts all the time so maybe we should relax together just once. šŸ˜‰

  1. That’s so interesting that you just really don’t enjoy meat. I always wonder how someone could be a vegetarian, because meat is so delicious! šŸ™‚ I have not been to London, but I really really want to go!

    • So for awhile when I was a kid I thought I loved steak and it turned out that I was just loving A-1 sauce! I think it’s strange that I just don’t enjoy meat, everyone in my family loves sausage and burgers. I’m a black sheep here!

      You should plan the trip for sometime 2 years from now and just slowly put money away towards it. Think of it like a business trip and force yourself to go and enjoy it. You will never regret traveling.

  2. I like what you said about taking real yoga classes. I took two in college and really enjoyed them because they introduced me to new stretches/moves and they also got me going (since I was taking them for credit at my university). BUT I’ve been doing yoga/pilates at home since and I love doing it on my own! Do you follow your own routines or do you use an app or something?

    Thanks for linking up!

    • I tried fitting a yoga class into my schedule and it never worked out. That’s really great that you were able to get introduced to a class while getting credit for it. With all that money going towards tuition you need to do something fun with it! I love doing sun salutations in the morning it really helps me wake up for the day. Otherwise my routine is just me picking out 5-10 poses to work on each day. I am not flexible so this is the best thing for me to do in my practice. Right now the biggest poses I’m working on are: lotus, Hanumanasana (full split), crow, downward dog, and wheel pose. I clearly need to work on just increasing my overall flexibility but something I always struggled with was my back and hips.

      I loved this link up! I will deff be doing more! Thanks <33
