Which, when I stop to give thought to this, totally depresses me and makes me feel like a failure at life.
I've been thinking lately about if I could do anything, what I would do. Here's a list of just a few things that I want but have never had the time or money or guts to go for.
- Travel to a foreign country. Or several foreign countries.
- Swim in the ocean. I know. It's sad.
- Own a convertible. To complete #10.
- Buy a house. I'm a financial commitment-phobe.
- See a Cubs game at Wrigley Field. Ivy covered walls and decade long failures entice me.
- Be a mom. But not by myself.
- Take a yoga class. Even though the thought makes me quite nervous.
- Be even within 15 pounds of my high school weight. I wish I was as fat as I thought I was then.
- See a Broadway play. Of course, this requires a trip to New York first.
- Drive across the country. In a convertible. With funny friends.
- Place a bet in a Vegas casino. And drink all their free drinks. And then get married by Elvis. On second thought, maybe I should re-think Vegas.
- See a Final Four game in person. And if Duke were in it, then that's just a bonus.
- Go on a cruise. They just look fun.
- Visit the Smithsonian. I don't know why. I just really, really like museums.
- Take a creative writing class. I'm not sure why I've never done this.
- Go white water rafting. Creekwalking at camp just didn't cut it.
- See the Grand Canyon (again). I saw it when I was like 4. I remember nothing.
- Take a year off to just do volunteer work. It hits the "being needed" addiction head on.
What about you?
