Seven Things on My Bucket List

I’ve been working on my bucket list for years now. I’m happy to say that I’ve crossed off a few items on my bucket list (go to New York, have a date in a drive in movie and master wearing heels) but a bucket list is something that you should be working on for the whole of your life. It’s a little obvious to say but I think people give up on trying new things.

  1. 1. Go to a masquerade

    Do they even have masquerade balls anymore? I have no clue. But, if people can attend a role play version of Harry Potter than I can figure out a place where I can find my fairytale dreams. The thing is there’s something alluring about going around in a beautiful dress with my identity safely secured underneath a mask. I think it’s something that I’ve always been interested in but never looked to actually do until recently.

  2. 2. Take a road trip with friends

    I blame my childhood tv shows. I think that almost every show that I watched as a kid had a road trip episode. But, in real life there’s something nice about taking a long trip with a group of close knit friends. I could care less about where we’re going but listening to music, talking and munching on room service is something that I wouldn’t pass up for the world.

  3. 3. Catch a bouquet at a wedding

    I don’t know where this obsession came from. But, I always wanted to catch a bouquet at a wedding. The thing is that I haven’t been to a wedding since I was a little kid and I don’t see myself going to a wedding any time soon. Maybe someday.

  4. 4. Visit Shakespeare and company

     

    I love book stores. Although I’ve never been to one that hasn’t been a Barnes and Nobles or another chain shop. But, this Parisian bookshop is something that honestly makes me giddy. Hopefully one day I’d be able to go. 

  5. 5. Live alone in my dream apartment

     

    I lived alone last year and I loved it. The thing is that it was in a dorm and I didn’t have the luxury of cooking and had to share a bathroom with about fifty people. Ever since then I’ve been waiting for my chance to live alone again. I picture my dream apartment to be small but functional and uniquely me. Although it’s a long time away from this summer and winter break I’ll be saving up for a down payment on my own apartment after I graduate.

  6. 6. See the Ball drop in time Square

     

    If any of my friends are reading this, please make sure that you hit me up to see the ball drop if you want to. I know that the experience is going to be overrated and crowded. But, at least once in my life, I want to see the ball drop in person.

  7. 7. Publish a book 

    Books are the hardest thing to create on earth.Period, I’ve been working on one since Freshman year and finally made a dent in my book. I know that I want to write a poetry book as well but, until then I’ll be drafting.

Hopefully, I’ll have these list a little shorter this time next year but until then I’ll be more than happy to cross off other items on my list until then.
