Things to do...

..in your life. Things you want to accomplish. Make a list.

In no particular order, here's some of mine:

-Become a pediatrician
-Find true love
-Own a golden retreiver
-Go skydiving
-Ace an exam
-Have a perfect above 90 degree arabesque in ballet. Perfect my foutee turns.
-Learn to speak another language...FLUENTLY (unlike my sad grasp of Italian, Slovenian, and French)
-Visit Paris...visit each continent (excluding Antarctica)
-Meet a celebrity
-Learn a new instrument
-Write something worth reading
-Be happy. Legitimately happy
-Do what I can to make sure my brother, sister, and friends lead happy lives
-Throw a hissy fit, have an arguement with my boss, yell "I quit" and storm out of the office. Have people admire me for it
-Have someone look up to me
-Adopt a senior citizen
-Move to Australia for a year
-Meet U2 (*sigh*)
-Take a huge risk
-Teach ballet...teach children in general
-Find a pair of knee-high boots that actually fit me

...and more.


This message was edited by me when I realized some of the cool stuff I left out. Swim with dolphins!

Wow great idea for a thread.

You wanna move here for a year?! Better not be cause you think the croc hunter represents the true Australia
my list is long only because it gives me a chance to atleast tick off some of them at the end, I will be happy if I manage just some of these.

* Find happiness
* Have some sort of writing published, mainly because I want to have a dedication at the front hehe
* Be a photographer/writer
* Travel more through Europe, across Australia, Canada and to Africa
* Ride a surfboard, even if its just once
* See my family and friends live very happy lives
*See my Mum find some sort of peace in her life again
* Drive across America
* Have a little house by the water
* Get the courage to try acting on a higher level
* Go back to uni and study more, perhaps get a Masters Degree
* Learn how to speak Italian or French fluently
*learn how to play a few songs on the guitar properly
* meet some people that mean a lot to me whom ive met only on the net
* give Bono a kiss
* get my body looking a way that I'll be happy with it, not perfect, just so I can relax
* learn to fly a plane
* own an MG
* earn enough money so that Im not struggling
* to spend my life with someone I love and do the whole family thing someday i guess, although i doubt thats gonna happen

Whats a Saskatchewan? Some kind of animal?

No doubt an incredibly dull and flat animal which never does anything exiting. Much like a manitoba beast.

- Find some way to pay off all the loans I'll be racking up getting that masters
- Move to Ireland or the UK
- Stop worrying
- Speak German fluently
- Learn to play at least ONE full song on the guitar. Failing that, learn to play the bass
- Eat Greek food for lunch tomorrow
- Think of more things to do

Hell no! The croc hunter scares me! It's just always been my dream to go there....It's cause I think Patrick Rafter represents the TRUE Australia!

(I love this thread. Keep it coming people. I'm so proud!)
