So today, I’m revisiting my bucket list from three years ago: crossing off and adding a few items to it. Maybe I can hit some of them by the time I’m 30? I can dream.
Go to grad school // DONE (well, almost)! I graduate next week from my 10-month graduate program. And then it’s on to the next adventure, wherever that may be!
Zip line // DONE! My dad and I did this in Alaska when we vacationed there a few years ago. It was definitely a cool experience, and I think I’d do it again, especially in a place that isn’t raining 300 days out of the year. Although the rain did make the line go a little faster.
Swim with dolphins // My parents have done this and said it was a great experience. I’d say I want to swim with penguins, too, but I think that would be a little chilly for my taste.
Do the Sound of Music tour in Austria // It’s no secret that The Sound of Music is my favorite movie ever made. When I was in Austria last summer, I only visited Vienna.
Take cooking classes // I’d really love to be able to cook fancy meals and impress people at dinner parties. While culinary school is totally out of the question, there are all sorts of classy techniques and styles I’d like to try. Maybe one day I’ll take a few cooking classes and up my skills.
Learn calligraphy and watercolor // I can fake calligraphy pretty well (thanks Pinterest), but I want to learn it for real. Same with watercolor painting. It’s so pretty, and combining calligraphy with watercolor is stunning when done well. And I could do all my own wedding stationary!
Grow my own gardens // When we lived in Atlanta, my mom grew tomatoes, peppers and blueberries, and a bunch of herbs. We made fresh salsa every summer and frequently used the herbs in cooking. One reason I can’t wait to have my own house is so I can grow my own fruit, veggies and herbs. Think of all the fresh and delicious food I could make!
Work for Coca-Cola and/or The Weather Channel // Talk about my ultimate childhood dream jobs. When I was younger, I wanted to be a meteorologist, but that vision changed when I realized how much I hated math and science. But you can work for TWC without being a meteorologist. As for Coke, who wouldn’t love working for a company that lives to make people happy just by consuming a fizzy beverage?
I encourage you to go back to your old bucket lists and look at what you can cross off. What would you add to your bucket list? How has your list changed?
