Being the smarty-pants that you are, I'm sure you're familiar with the concept of ''bucket'' or ''life'' lists (you know those almighty compilations that people make about activities they'd like to complete before they... uh... ''go''? Yes! That's them), but have you ever actually sat down and taken a moment to CREATE one? I hadn't!
If you find yourself with a minute or two, can I recommend scribbling one out? I mean, it's all well and fabulous to say ''one day, I'm going to feast myself senseless in Italy!'' (and I'm sure that you will!), but having your dreams documented is excellent motivation for acting on them. And with that, here's my list!
(Disclaimer: Why yes, I do have a boyfriend, but he's entirely comfortable with me trotting off to one in the name of research!) The idea of speed-dating, where you have a series of one-to-one dates that last from 3-8 minutes each, is mildly horrifying, but can you imagine what an interesting experience it'd be? I'm INTRIGUED! (Plus, one of my best friends swears that they're an absolute blast!)
And you know what? I'm going to buy a globe, spin it around with my eyes closed and start planning an adventure for NEXT YEAR!
Oh, but of course! Sing it with me now: ''under the sea... under the sea! Darling it's better, down where it's wetter, take it from ME!''
Who could resist a saunter through mid-air? Not this muppet!
Can I confess something to you? I FREQUENTLY dream of spending a year taking different jobs (waitressing? Teaching? Assisting in a circus?!) and writing about the experiences. Frequently, I tell you! My only hesitation? The idea of wasting an employer's time. (I do not want to burn bridges or waste anyone's time!) Maybe I should consider various internships?
Because life's too short to not be able to exclaim ''I've leapt out of a plane!''
Intelligently named Michael Jackson, Elton John, David Bowie, James Brown, Tom Jones, Corey Taylor, Frank Zappa, Freddie Mercury, and (what else?!) Inspector Birdface.
And view aesthetics from (and with!) a fresh perspective.
I'm a serial saver and a ''that handbag costs $3000?! But you could visit London and back with that!''-ist. The thought of frittering away my pennies on stilettos is BEYOND terrifying.... and strangely appealing!
It's all a total mystery to me (what are ''all'' ords?!), which is a superb enough reason for it not to be!
Now, I could spend five minutes rattling on about why this is on my must-do list, or I could just remind you that... it's a restaurant! Underwater! UNDERWATER! Let's visit it!
Uh huh! (Sorry, Dad!)
In a forest would be PERFECT.
Learning woodwork? Smooching somebody ludicrously inappropriate? Mastering Marketing?! (Hey, there's no judgement here!) What's on YOUR life list?
