31 years ago today I graced this world with my presence. I
hope to continue gracing the world with my presence for many more years to
Here are 31 things I have never done, but would like to do
before I am too old to do them. This is not a bucket list, just stuff I don’t
seem to be able to fit in my daily routine. Something always has to give.
To cross the Atlantic Ocean by boat.
Learn survival skills of various kinds like for #1 or like a Zombie Apocalypse or something.
To attend a World Cup. Wish I were off to Brazil in a few weeks!
I would love to see a wild panda in China.
Visit Spain, because I have never been there.
Go punting in Oxford.
While I am in Oxford I might has well study Astronomy. I want to be able to look up into the stars and tell others what they are, like a smug academic!
Learn crochet – it might be a useful survival skill
... just like learning to make sushi
or building a tree house
Becoming a Pokemon Master could definitely be bunched in with essential survival skills!
Take a horticulture and landscaping course.
Throw the BEST Alice in Wonderland Tea Party Ever!
Write a book.
Read every book in the world! I know I never will, but at least I can try.
Get my acceptance letter to Hogwarts.
Own my own print studio
... and create art.
Collect all of K.K. Sliders tracks.
Go zip sliding. Although I don’t know I could ever climb up high enough to actually do it.
Make a You Tube vlog of my attempt to live dangerously by zip sliding. Or in instructional survival guide video.
Start a trend.
... or better yet have a blog post go “viral.”
Master Tai Chi
Travel in a hot air balloon; I was obsessed with them when I was a kid.
Lose weight and live a healthier life style.
Learn that patience is a virtue not a curse.
Watch my girls grow into the beautiful women I know they will become.
Learn to life my life as a clique: To live each day as though I will live forever and as though I will die tomorrow.
To just be happy. (Yes, it is appropriate to start singing Pharrell Williams “Happy”)
notes: all the pictures come from online somewhere I should be a responsible blogger and list them all, but I am writing this post when I should be getting ready for birthday drinks so that will have to come later!!!
