Everyone has a bucket list, or at least everyone has a few things that they’d like to do before they die! There are so many wonderful places and things to do in life, and it is my intention to try and experience as much as I can while I am able to.
I wrote my first bucket list when I was about ten years old, and as you could expect, the entries were along the lines of getting the new Bratz doll, becoming a famous actress and going to the moon. As I have gotten a little older, I think that it is safe to say that my tastes have changed!
So here are a few entries from my current bucket list!
· Go to Fiji
Fiji is one of those magical places that I have always seen on Instagram. The crystal-clear water, the white sandy beaches and the endless supply of gorgeous food and natural wonders makes Fiji an absolute dream!
· Drive the great ocean road
The great ocean road is a 243km road and a recognised tourist destination in Australia. Along the road there are various attractions, places to eat and experiences to enjoy, as well as the stunning views over the ocean. To some this may seem like a relatively boring experience, but I think that there is something relaxing about just driving, looking at the views and stopping at the coastal towns and experiencing what they have to offer.
· Get over my fear of deep water
I don’t know whether it is a fear of the unknown, a fear of drowning, or a fear of both, but I cannot get into deep water without freaking out! I would really like to tackle my fear and then maybe go snorkelling, swimming with dolphins or just be able to get into a swimming pool!
· Be an extra
Maybe this is playing into my fantasy of becoming a famous actress, which is extremely unrealistic, but I would love to be an extra on TV.
· Learn a new language
Speaking a foreign language is something that I have always wanted to do! I currently speak Spanish relatively well, but I’ve always wanted to learn Japanese and French! So, it is on my bucket list to learn how to speak Spanish and another language. I think that it is a wonderful and very useful skill, as well as a way to enjoy and immerse yourself in other cultures!
· Become a morning person
There is something about getting up in the morning that immediately puts me in a bad mood. Whether it is the lack of sleep, the amount of light, or the realisation that there aren’t enough hours in the day, but regardless, I hate mornings. I would love to condition my body to be able to get up in the morning and be productive!
So, there are a few of my bucket list ideas! I know that they aren’t terribly exciting, but I think that the smallest win can be the biggest achievement.
