Have you ever seen this movie?
I don't think that I have. At least not the whole thing. I have this tendency to fall asleep during movies and then not remember which movies I have actually seen.
Anyway, another one of the assignments in my Building Communities class was to create a bucket list - a list of things you want to do before you die. The minimum requirement was to have ten items on the list.
I thought it would be a simple assignment, but I had some trouble creating my list. There are many times where I have said, "I really want to _____________ sometime in my life." But as I made my list, those things were not coming to mind.
Another problem that I had was being able to commit to the things I was writing down. In my world, if something is written down, it is so. Therefore, I know that the things that I wrote on my bucket list will one day be so. As I made the list, however, I had to really think about whether or not the things I have said that I wanted are actually things that I intend to pursue.
Here is the list that I came up with:
1. Go skydiving.
2. Learn American Sign Language.
3. Go alone to somewhere I've never been.
4. See a live taping of Oprah or Ellen.
5. Get a 2nd Masters degree in either Educational Administration or Counseling.
6. Buy a house.
7. Adopt a child.
8. See the ball drop in New York City on New Year's Eve.
9. Learn to play the violin.
10. Teach a college class.
There you have it. Help keep me accountable, friends!
