My Bucket List
I am 32 years old. I get a little choked up saying that. Why does life seem to move so slowly when you are a child or a teen, but so quickly as an adult? I can remember saying, "I can't wait for high school!", "I can't wait to drive!", "I can't wait to graduate!" Little did I know that I was wishing my time away. Time seems to speed up at the age of 21. You hit that milestone (Some hit it a little harder than others!), and life moves at double time. So, today I'm looking at my life in perspective. I figure I have about 40 to 50 good years left. It's time to make a bucket list. I have my students create lists all year long in their writer's notebooks, and I have an abundance of lists in my notebook, but I've never created a bucket list. If you don't know what a bucket list is, it is a list of things you would like to accomplish before you die. I'm keeping it realistic. Here it goes!
1. Visit Yellowstone
2. Own a pool
3. Tour Asia
4. See a saguaro cactus
5. Drink a cafe au lait in Paris
This was much harder than I expected. It's definitely a work in progress.
