There are a lot of adventures on which I would like to embark. There is so much for me to do, so hopefully I don’t die young #fingerscrossed. My goal is to take as much as I can get out of this life and die a happy gal. I shall be like a bird in the sky someday…free; so I need to start working on this list.
The adventure that tops my bucket list is me traveling all around the world to meet new people, see new things and eat foods I dare try not to pronounce and those that I do. I want to live new experiences and see the world, broaden my horizon and live among the citizens and not some fancy hotel. Ultimately, the goal is to be happy. I also hope to take beautiful photographs and do a travel blog.
Here is a list of other activities that I’d like to do:
Learn to swim. For the life of me, I cannot swim, and I was born and raised on an island. I also lived near a lot of rivers, and I am probably the only one in my family who knows not how to swim.
Work with non-profit organizations... in support of human rights (gender equality, LGBTQ rights, racial rights, etc.) I someday hope to work with the United Nations (UN) and the Human Rights Council (HRC).
Learn at least 4 new languages. I am working on two (Spanish, French) at the moment so at least two to go.
Achieve my goal weight of somewhere between 120-140 lbs. I try every day to gain weight, but I shall see what the future holds.
I must go to Alaska…during the periods when it’s 24 hours of complete darkness and 24 hours of full sunlight. I just imagine how much of a beautiful of a time I will have. It must be nice to stargaze when Alaska experiences total darkness.
Photograph someone or something for an entire year. Photography is a hobby of mine and capturing certain moments to relive is always great. It’s like being stuck in time.
Play a musical instrument. I really really love the drums. A guitar or a piano would also suffice.
Learn to dance…Native Spanish dances tickle my fancy, so I am leaning towards those (flamenco, salsa, merengue). I also want to be superb at dancing to Dancehall music.
Write and publish a book of some kind. I am leaning towards romance novel because I’m a sucker for love; oddly enough I’m not touchy-feely, but it shall work out. Mix up my career choices a bit.
Live with no regrets. Know that everything happens for a reason somehow no matter how bad or inconvenient a situation may seem. Besides, life is too short to be worrying and having regrets. Do the things that I love and those things that make me happy.
I shall also try to make it my life duty to work hard and establish a scholarship or grant program in Jamaica so that the young people can afford to go to school without racking up millions of dollars in debt when trying to get a higher education. It’s hard out here I tell you.
What do you want to do? Let me know in the comments.
Until next time…
