You'll never know when your time is up. It would be such a waste if you don't make the most out of your time here on earth. So here I am thinking of what would make my life complete...
I have been thinking about my Bucket List for almost a year now. I started thinking about this when I was finally free from the suffocating relationship that was controlling my whole life. I had always lived for other people, never for myself. When I was finally on my own, I had an awakening and realized, I cannot die just yet, I haven't even lived my life.
So before I delve into my complicated life and start being dramatic, let me share my Bucket List.
I wanna be a licensed skydiver someday. I'm not expecting it to be anytime soon but I know someday I will be. Let's see if i would really do it.
I only went scuba diving once and right then and there I fell in love with it. I did it earlier this year in Cebu with some people I just met from the party a night before. I volunteered to join since I had nothing to do that day though deep inside I was scared to my bones. I don't have a license but they said they'll take care of it so off I went. It was raining really hard that day and I was hella nervous. I had a few puffs of something-I'd-rather-not-say before diving. It took me a while to sink so I had to add a few more weights on my waist. When I got to the bottom, it seemed like I was in a real aquarium. The water was really clear. There were different kinds of fish. The sand was white. IT WAS AWESOME. When I finally got the hang of it, I was going on my own. It was such an exhilarating experience for me. I loved it! I don't know how to swim, I'm afraid of the dark, I scared to be submerged underwater but I conquered my fear. I'd say this is one of the best experiences I had in my whole lifetime. Unforgettable. So someday, I want to formally learn to scuba dive and get a license. I'd want to do it with my family.
3. Pastry Shop
I love desserts and it has always been my dream to put up my own pastry shop where I can make, eat and share what I love the most.
4. Visit Japan, Scotland, Italy
Scotland, mainly for the view and the castles! If I were to live again, I’d like to live in the Romantic period. I am not a city girl despite my lifestyle.
Italy, because I want to see all the fountains they have.
5. Have my work published.
I'm not a writer but it has always been a dream of mine to have even just one of my works published.
6. Learn Photography
I'm not hoping to become a professional photographer, I just want to be a skilled photographer. Take good photos, capture the moment and keep them forever.
7. Buy my parents a house.
Because I am a good kid. Haha!
8. Get married!
DIE. HARD. HOPELESS. ROMANTIC!
9. Do something greatly significant.
I have a heart for the needy.
Lastly, I want to learn how to cook. This is the most basic and attainable of all and yet, at 24, I still don’t know how.
Here is a line from the movie The Bucket List, Carter Chambers: [to Edward, of the two questions asked of the dead by the gods at the entrance to heaven] Have you found joy in your life? Has your life brought joy to others?
