It is almost that time of the year again where people make wish lists, to-do lists, and all kinds of possible lists they can come up with. I, too, have a bucket list of things that I want to do before the year ends. Of course, some of them are leftovers from 2011. Those crossed out are the ones I have achieved.
- Have a toned and healthy body: Quite impossible. Food is just, you know, the most sacred thing to humanity. Just can’t let it go to waste.
Travel to 3 different countries in the world: to Japan in February, to Indonesia in June, to America in August. I’m from Vietnam, by the way.
Get into a good university: Here I am in Fontbonne.
Earn some money by writing: Because I plan to become a writer. Thank you Fontbonne for paying me for my written words.
Get A for Math: It was easier than I thought.
Exercise everyday: I’m crossing this because walking 40 minutes to and from school counts. And 15 minutes to Starbucks.
Travel to 3 cities in America: Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago. My next stop is San Francisco. Yes, I do love traveling.
- Save $100 every month: Simply impossible…
Make 3 new friends in America: And I made way more than 3.
Learn a new language: I’m learning Chinese.
So I was able to do 8 out of 10. It was pretty impressive because last year I only did 5/10. Guess America is quite the place for me! I have not made a list for 2016 yet, but it would possibly filled with travel and diet plans.
How about you? Did you achieved your goals for 2015? Tell me!
This year has been wild from start to finish! I rang the New Year in by getting a tonsillectomy. My little brother with Down syndrome graduated high school!! I got to spend the fourth of July in Panama City Beach and missed a day of work because the car broke down in Alabama on the way home. I started my senior year of classes and applied to grad school. I got a job at a cupcake place and made a hell of a lot of awesome friends at school!!!!! Friends for life, I’m sure.
I hope everyone else has had a wonderful 2015. This school year has been rough, but I’ve learned many lessons. I’ve had my fair share of ups and downs, but needless to say, it’s been a solid year overall. Hopefully, 2016 is better by far and filled with so many wonderful things and opportunities. Hope you all do well on your finals and have a great break!!!!!
Until next semester!
2014 is a very big year for me. Some might be thinking I am graduating this year; not just yet I’m not. This year I will be turning 30. The big 3-0. A time where people will joke that I am approaching being “over the hill” because they think it’s funny. There is a part of me that is FREAKING OUT about beginning my third decade of life. So, I am using that fear to make 2014 the most fun year of my life thus far. In order to achieve this goal, I have started a list of things to do. While this is an ever-growing list (I do have a whole year after all) here are some of the things I would like to do: go ice skating at Steinberg, go to a winery, play bingo, take more pictures with my actual camera… and the list goes on. I am sure some of these things many people have already done and that’s why they are on my list. I feel like I am going to turn 30 and I haven’t done a lot of the things people my age have done. Life gets chaotic and messy while trying to work, go to school, take care of a family, and still find time to go out and enjoy myself. So this is the year that enjoying myself comes first; I’m ready to experience a year’s worth of fun and memories.
