Bucket List!

How’s it shakin’ bacon?

 

I feel like everyone has some sort of bucket list, whether or not it’s intentional or not. We all want to do things and have experiences to look back on, right? So I thought why not make my own little official bucket list. A small one.

 

  1. Travel – I have a giant list of places I want to travel to. I think it probably deserves a post of it’s own. Haha!
  2. Live outside Ireland for at least one year
  3. Swim with dolphins
  4. Rock climbing – actual rock climbing
  5. Feed sharks
  6. Go skydiving – as terrifying as this sounds it’d really be quite the adventure (and a good story too!)
  7. Zip lining
  8. Go on a date
  9. Donate Clothing
  10. See a ‘play’ on Broadway
  11. Write & Publish a Novel
  12. Learn to use Chopsticks
  13. See a ballet
  14. Get a tattoo
  15. Participate in a 5K race
  16. Go to an aquarium
  17. Visit a pyramid
  18. Go on a Road Trip
  19. Be an extra in a movie
  20. Attend a Masquerade

 

Is any of this even achievable? I guess we’ll see! Any suggested additions? What’s on your bucket list?

 

Until next time, warm hugs!

This year I wanted to take up an instrument. So, I’ve decided to start with the keyboard/piano. I already own a keyboard so I’m hoping to get that set up in the next few days and perhaps even look into taking lessons (that I’ll just learn from YouTube videos).

I really believe that continuing to learn is very important after finishing school or college. So I want to make 2017 a year of learning for me. I haven’t decided what I’m going to do yet, though I have some ideas. I’ll be sure to be researching some courses in the coming days.

I took German classes in school and I sucked at it. I think that if I didn’t have the pressure of pending exams that perhaps I’d have better luck learning German. So, we’ll see what happens.

 

Do you have any plans to take up any skills in 2017?

 

Until next time, warm hugs

New Year! New You?

Happy New Year!!! Like most people I have decided on a set of New Years Resolutions. A lot of these are things I have been intending to do or have even tried in the past, but unsurprisingly I have failed and I never stopped to think why. The biggest reason I’ve failed is: I procrastinate… a lot (and I’m lazy). So, this year, I want to replace bad habits with some new, good habits. So, I think this year will be about learning good habits. Also, I want to learn some skills – take up a language, an instrument, read more books, perhaps even make some new friends, write more (and better) blog posts. Most of all I want to be able to travel. The way I see it, 2017 is the beginning of more years of progress and of learning.

Do you have anything you want to do this year? If there’s something you really want to do (as long as it isn’t harmful to you or anyone else) go for it. Grow that dream and chase it to infinity and beyond. Make it real!

I hope that 2017 is a far better year that 2016 and that it will be the beginning of many wonderful years to come. Life is what we make it. I hope I don’t sound preachy. Anyway, let the games begin! May the odds be ever in your favor! Haha!

Until next time, warm hugs,

Morgenstern!
