I like the simple things in life. My favorite time of the day is right before bed when I can curl up and read before drifting off to sleep. Sometimes I like to just sit outside and do absolutely nothing but watch the clouds pass by. My heart did a little trill at the sound of thunder just now, the prospect of a stormy day to write thrilling me.
But, despite how nice the simple things in life are, we all need a little excitement. Even the quietest people dream big.
Me, I love the idea of adventures and excitement. As pleasant as those quiet moments are, the extrovert in me craves the chaotic thrills of life.
The absolutely precious Andrea Nan @ Fantasies and Fountainpens has passed on the Bucket List Tag my way. Dreaming of those big, exciting things I’d love to do before I die is always fun, so I was very excited to be nominated. Thank you so much, Andrea! And everyone do go check out her blog. She’s a true delight.
There doesn’t seem to really be rules along with this tag. Which is good because I usually break the rules anyway, don’t I? You post a few of the things on your bucket list, pass the tag on to others to do the same if you so wish, and there you have it!
So what sort of chaotic nonsense do I dream of doing before dying? Well. . .
Did you know I have a slight obsession with foxes? No? Oh. Well, I do. They’re one of my top favorite animals in fact. Actually having one as a pet, well, that is the dream. A fennec fox specifically though. They’re probably the most adorable creatures on the planet of ever.
And while we’re on the subject of animals. . .
Did you know I’m also exceedingly obsessed with penguins? Seriously, I LOVE those adorable things. But since having one for a pet probably wouldn’t go over so well, I’ll just have to settle for hugging one.
It’s gonna happen! This has been my dream since I learned what a library is! I want a room dedicated completely to books. Over packed with them. I can smell the magic seeping from that room already. . .
Well, actually, I am a writer. But I’m not published yet, and that’s what I dream of. One of my very top dreams in fact. It may be the top.
I LOVE you guys! You’re some of my closest friends. So to actually meet in person. . .that would be beyond amazing.
Okay, this one may not actually be possible due to health problems but, man, do I wish I could. So, SO much! I’m one of those crazies who actually adores heights. Yeah, I’m weird.
This one goes very near the top of the list and I have every intention of doing it someday. Out of all the countries in the world, Ireland is my first choice to visit. I must someday!
And England is probably my second choice (or New Zealand, it’s a close call). But London specifically. What I would give to go there!
Why not just go to ALL the places? I would love to travel the world!
Yes, yes, yes! Why aren’t these still things?
Another thing that probably will never be reality. I just don’t think I have the talent for it. My stick people looked deformed. No joke. But I’ve always had such a desire to be able to draw. I’m constantly thinking up things I would love to draw. But, alas, I can’t even make a smiley face look right. I guess I’ll always just have to paint pictures with words. But that’s okay. I wouldn’t give up storytelling for the world.
We’ve already started picking out furniture. *cough, cough* Hey, ya never know. It could happen. If we’re both still unmarried in our 30s. . . *shrugs* It’s always an option. But. . .
This is obviously one of the top things on the list. It has definitely always been one of my greatest wishes. But I’ve handed it over to God. Whatever He sees fit for my life is okay with me. ^_^
Oddly enough, this is one of the very top things. I have this weird obsession with hot air balloons. I don’t know what it is about them, but I just love them! I MUST have at least one hot air balloon ride before I die. It’s not a want, it’s a neeeed.
And lastly but by FAR leastly. . .
This is very, very, very, VERY high on the list. To see my favoritest music artist live in concert? Just. . .just. . . There are no words. It must happen. It MUUUUST!!!! (And this is so weird, an Owl City song just came on in my iTunes playlist while I’m typing this, out of 270 random songs. o.O)
That was a total blast to do. Thank you again, Andrea!
And since I have no idea who’s all interested in participating (but I secretly want you all to do it) I’m nominating no one and everyone. I would LOVE to see your lists, but I also understand if you don’t want to do it. Sooo if you do, take this tag. It’s yours. I insist! Or if you don’t want to blog about it, how about telling me your list in the comments? I would love to know what everyone dreams of doing one day with their lives. It’s fun to dream big.
Well, off I go to write. I can at least work toward something on this list right now, can’t I?
Hope you’re all doing wonderfully right now in this beautiful mess we call life. <3
