The Bucket List Blogfest! No Morgan Freeman, sorry...
Or Jack Nicholson, for that matter. But still, check out the other blogfesters here at Swin - Write - Run.
Five things from my bucket list. Wow. At twenty eight, it's tough to think about what a bucket list really means (death, DEATH, deeeeeath), but I may as well do things while I'm young, right?
I jumped out of a plane in 2010, so that one has a huge checkmark. If you're thinking about doing it, you should. Seriously. It was amazing. Buy the video, buy the pictures. Do it all, and do it right.
So, here we go!
1. Get a tattoo.
Yes, I want one. A little one, probably on the back of my neck. And as dork-tastic as it is, I want the four star Dragon Ball. Hey, you bring the seven together and get a wish. That's awesome. You just can't deny it. Maybe that will be for my thirtieth birthday. But my wussiness and low pain tolerance may present a problem...
2. Cruise around the world
Eat Pray Love made me remember how much world travelling used to mean to me. People always say they'll travel if they come into money, and I'm no different. So, since I don't play the lottery and I'm not expecting a Rowling-sized payout any tim soon (realistic, not negative!), I'm going to have to save-save-save. But I want it more than so many things in life.
3. Dye my hair
This is old-hat for many people, but I've never done it. The closest I came was when I was nineteen. I wanted red highlights through my muddy brown. Paid my money, sat in the chair, and saw zero difference at the end of it all. Unbeknowst to me, my dear (meddling) mother told the stylist to make it as faint as she could. So, I don't count it. :) Blonde streaks would be fun, but I'm so partial to something in red.
4. Learn French
I took Spanish in high school, but French...it's just such a gorgeous, sensual language. It's like a warm oboe solo with subtle vibrato. Know what I mean? It would be fun to learn and speak (when I'm travelling through France, of course).
5. Dark Phoenix for Halloween
This is my outlandish one if you didn't already guess. :) But I'd have to really, REALLY pull it off. High heels, spandex, reddish brown wig. Now we've come to the real reason for all my exercising, huh? That would be the year I actually go to Halloween parties.
So, there's my five. Travelling would open up so many more, but I had to really think of these. I'm looking forward to reading the other buckets list to get more ideas.
What about you? Five things on your bucket list. Annnnnd GO!
