My New Bucketlist

Now that my time at Sewanee has come to an end, I want to set my sights on ways to make my life the most exciting it can be.  Everyone talks about having a Sewanee bucketlist, but I think this concept should be taken advantage of even after your college career ends.  Sure the idea of a bucketlist may seem cliche, but I believe that you should live every day like it could be your last. Life is too short, and the world is too big and beautiful to not take advantage of.  Here are a couple of things that I hope to do one day... (my full bucketlist is wayyyy too long to list, but here are just a few things):

  • Go skydiving
  • See a tornado
  • Whale watching
  • Be a bridesmaid
  • Go to a drive-in movie
  • Go to the Louvre
  • Read 100 of the greatest books ever written
  • Travel by helicopter
  • Hike down the Grand Canyon
  • Visit Hawaii
  • Drive down Route 66, stopping at all the popular tourist spots
  • Go hiking in a rainforest
  • Walk on the Great Wall of China
  • Visit Australia
  • Ride a camel in the desert

  • Float in the Dead Sea
  • Go to an ice bar
  • Go dog sledding
  • Visit New York at Christmastime

  • Attend Mardi Gras in New Orleans
  • Learn a new language

The idea behind a bucketlist is that you do not have regrets towards how you have lived your life. A similar idea was presented when Sewanee SGA presented the Before I Die board on campus, encouraging students to contribute to an overall bucketlist.  I encourage you all to make a bucketlist so that you can live life to its full potential!
