As I was reminded earlier this week, I’m getting old. 22 is only 8 years away from 30, which is close to 40, which is basically middle-aged, which means my life is basically over. Not my logic, but I’m running with it. Since I, apparently, don’t have that much time left, here are some of the things that are on my life list. I prefer life list to bucket list because it’s much less depressing. I also wasn’t a fan of the movie.
Numero uno: Go to Disney World.
Yes, it’s true. I’m 22, and I’ve never been to Disney World or Disneyland. The closest I’ve ever come to anything remotely Disney is the mountain of old VHS tapes hidden in a cabinet somewhere and an off-Broadway production of Beauty and the Beast when I was like five. More like off-off-Broadway. It was in Cincinnati – not exactly a musical hub.
Numero dos: Run a half-marathon.
Originally, I typed marathon. Then I decided that even I have to be a tad bit realistic with my life goals or I’ll never actually get anything done. Since I’m not a particularly good (or let’s face it, consistent) runner, I’m honestly not sure this will actually happen. I mostly just want that stupid sticker on my car.
Numero tres: Visit every country in the world.
Here’s the big one. The one that I would need a million dollars and a few years of vacation to accomplish. This goal started with wanting to visit every continent in the world, but then I thought, heck, why stop there? There are a few countries that I could do without a lengthy stay (North Korea isn’t particularly appealing, but that might be just me), so a fly-over might have to do.
What are some of your life goals?
