I really like lists!! I fill notebooks with them. This list was particularly fun to write.
It might seem strange that I’ve compiled a list of things to do before I die. I’m only twenty-two years old for crying out loud! But I’ve learned in the past couple of years that time flies by, and lately I’ve realized that unless I keep these goals of what I want to accomplish in mind, I might never complete them.
Some of these things are things I would like to do, but I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to. Others I must do before I die (for example, going to
Be in another musical (perhaps even be the lead!)
Record my singing on a CD (Obviously it won’t be professionally done and my voice won’t be heard on the radio, but I would like to record my voice on better technology than a twenty-year-old tape recorder.)
Take my kids to
Have a garden (both with food and flowers)
Learn French, Latin, Italian and/or Portuguese (I doubt I could learn all of these languages, but I would love to. This list is in order of priority. Since
Complete a somewhat impressive visual piece of art (whether a painting or something else) This one might be a little too far out there for my abilities.
Edit for a magazine or book publishing company (even if it’s just for less than a year)
Write a book—not sure whether fiction or nonfiction. I haven’t decided if I actually want to do this. Ironically, I prefer novels written before 1900, mostly from
Learn to fence (Not required but again this would be awesome!)
Ride a horse up to a gallop and feel comfortable doing so
Get a master’s degree in English literature and teach (Maybe even a PhD and teach at the college level. This again probably won’t happen, but I’ve thought a little bit about it. Who knows? If this does happen, it will come after my kids are older and I have completed most of the other things I want to do before I die.)
As you can see, I’ve got a lot of work and saving to do to accomplish all this before I die.
