My Bucket List

I write bucket lists every year and I obviously end up making new ones since my preferences and perspectives in life change from time to time. I need a lot of motivation and inspiration now though so I guess I'll a new one today. Now that I'm nearly 19, I hope I can stick with it for a long time. I also hope I can accomplish at least half of it. 
  • Write a novel - My grandpa was an author and published 6 books (or more) before he died. He included all of his grand children's names on those books and he really inspired me to practice writing. I want to write my own book someday, I don't care if it does not get published. Writing a novel with all my heart and soul is what truly matters.
  • Own a successful business someday - I can really see myself handling my own business. I have so many ideas and I just can't wait to put it all into actions. 
  • Ride a submarine and visit the wreckage of the Titanic- I will do whatever it takes, even if I have to marry a marine in order to experience it. 
  • Hot air balloon date - Typical woman here who wants a romantic afternoon with le hubby on a hot air balloon! Please?
  • Have wonderful children - I've always wanted to have a big family (that means 4 or more children!) I can pretty much imagine myself going to family outings with so many kiddos who are competing for my attention. I love children and I hope my future husband does too :)
  • Jet ski race with my boyfriend - We both love the sea and any activity that involves water, I just don't know why this never happened yet :(
  • Hug Robert Smith and Andrew Mc Mahon for making such beautiful music - Please, I'm not the only one who fantasises about doing this, right? Those 2 gentlemen did the world a huge favour, and that's obviously producing wonderful songs. 
  • Ride a motorcycle - Okay, don't give me that weird look. My mum never allowed me to ride one because it's "dangerous" ... but don't tell her I wrote this though! It's our little secret ;)
  • Create my dream home - I certainly love wasting my time browsing through home magazines and the internet, looking at big and beautiful houses. Although, I would still pretty much prefer to design it according to my needs and style. Knowing myself, I want everything I own to be customised - I want it to reflect myself, my personality. 
  • Bake a cake for someone special - Okay, I've never baked a cake before.. Well, maybe in Home Economics class but it doesn't count because it was a group project, okay? And I want my first cake to be given to someone really special (oh god, now you can pretty much imagine how cheesy I am)
  • Fly a kite - I remember owning heaps of colourful kites when I was younger but I can't recall ever flying them. Never too late guys! 
  • Hit bullseye on a dartboard - Self explanatory...
  • Scuba diving - I've always wanted to do this but the people around me are either scared or simply can't be bothered doing it. I seriously need to meet new friends who are passionate about this.
  • Graduate uni with flying colours - I know that my hard work will pay off within a few years :) Gotta make mum and dad proud!
  • Win NaNoWriMo - I just know I will.
  • Learn how to play the piano again - My cousins and I used to attend piano lessons when we were younger because our grandpa encouraged us to do so. I only studied for about 2 months... and I totally regret it now. I wish I pursued playing because it was like a therapy for me, like a stress reliever after a long day.
  • Invent something - A game? Trend? or even just an idea, I simply want to contribute something worthy for everyone. 
  • Buy my dad his dream car - I always tell him that I'll buy him a car when I'm already earning my  own money (I was young ok and I wanted that cute Barbie doll) But seriously, he has done so many sacrifices for our family, always thought about us first, and loved us with all his heart so I want to reciprocate that by fulfilling my promise. I know that his ultimate wish in life is for us (his 3 children) to finish college and be successful in life but I also know that a car will be a huge bonus ;)
  • Go shopping with my mum for the whole day... my treat! - Like my dad, she also sacrificed a lot for us. She never buys new clothes anymore, she always prioritises us first. She earns a lot of money, but she never spends it for herself. My mum doesn't even buy herself lunch during the weekdays, she saves it instead so she can help us repay our student loan. I want to make it up to her by buying everything she has always wanted. She deserves it.

*I will still update this, but that's all for now :)

  18. I really love this list. I have a similar list on my blog (called... "The List". How original, eh? haha!) and it's so fun to add new items and to mark off items that I've done.

    We have a few items in common... like ride in a hot air balloon. My boyfriend was lucky enough to know someone who had one years ago, so he's been in one tons of times! Now he has to take me for a ride... ;) haha.

    (I'm totally interested in swapping blog buttons with you, by the way! I still have got to make a button to fit your size, but I'm totally interested!)
