Last year I finished my to do list, the one I wrote years ago when I was a senior in high school ans ever since then I've been feeling kind of lost. I miss having something to work at, look forward to, achieve I loved that they were from young nieve me, with honest dream and a bright future. I actually thought it would take a lot longer to finish, I could never have guessed that I would see Paul Simon from the front row, on the beach at sunset and get paid to do so. It was such a high point in my life I rode that smile for months. Now I'm left wondering what direction I need to go and with my 38th birthday approaching I thought maybe I'll start with a list of things I haven't done yet and decide which to put on my new to do list, the first one took 20 years to finish wonder how long the new list will take to cross off.
Things I haven't done and wouldn't mind doing:
visit the Grand Canyon
ride a double decker bus in England
move back home after college
learn to sing
ride the Maid of the Mist in Niagara Falls
become a painter
design my own home
own a cheese farm with 11 sheep and 1 goats
take the kids to France
go see Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
do yoga everyday
ride my bicycle cross-country
adopt a child (this has been on my unofficial list since I was 9 yrs old)
get drunk (this one I don't really want to but wonder what it feels like)
publish a picture book
create hallmark greeting cards
dye my hair blonde
find a religion I identify with
have a best friend
laugh really hard at least once a day
learn to ride a unicycle
Don't know if all of these warrant being on the list, who really needs to wear make-up anyways?
Wish I could find the list I made at school in 6th grade and as Luna's 6th grade teacher of course I had her write one too.
Go here if you want help writing your own.
HAVE A HAPPY WEEKEND!
