There are many things I want to do in my life. I’m going to make a list to remind myself what I’d miss out on if I wasn’t here. What’s on your list??
1. Go and volunteer abroad (looking after elephants)
I’m planning to do this in the summer of 2014, if I can save up enough money! (eek!) I want to go to Thailand or Kenya (I think, this may change)
2. Have a beautiful garden
I don’t know why, but I want one. We have a garden here, but it’s boring, and not beautiful. I want a garden like the one in Just Like Heaven (happens to be a lovely film if you haven’t seen it).
3. Become fluent in another language
This is (hopefully) likely to happen. I think I’ve mentioned in other posts, I’m doing German as half of my degree (German & Psychology joint honours) so will be spending a year in Germany.
4. Go sky diving (and bungee jumping)
Because, why not? Although I am known for being scared of EVERYTHING, I love stuff like that. The adrenaline rush must be amazing! (Although I may have some trouble actually jumping myself)
5. Become a psychologist
This is my aim. I have seen first hand how rubbish mental health care is in the UK (no offence to the NHS, they can’t help having their budgets cut!) and I want to help people. I think I want to be a clinical psychologist, but maybe counselling…still undecided for now.
6. Write a book (and get it published)
I have always loved writing. When I was younger, and my brother was even younger, I always used to invent stories for him at bedtime (when he didn’t want any of his books). I would love to write something that really captures the reader’s imagination. J. K. Rowling is a massive inspiration, but that’s aiming a bit high!
7. Have a family
I think this has to go on here. I am only 19, but one day (a way away) I want to get married (to the right person) and have kids, family, the whole fairytale really.
8. See the Northern Lights
(In real life rather than pictures – obviously). They look so beautiful and magical. This definitely has to be done, possibly in Norway. Talking of Northern Lights, Brother Bear is a good film too (even if it is for kids).
9. Get a first in my degree
This is something I would love to do, but it’s highly unlikely. Still, I plan to work my butt off, and if that’s not good enough, then that’s how it is.
10. Run a marathon
It might be the whole “olympic fever”, but I was thinking recently that I’d love to do it, must be such a great feeling at the end! To this my dad replied: “I’d love to finish a marathon it’s just the first 26 miles I don’t want to do.” He thinks he’s hilarious (he’s not.)
So there’s 10 things, I know there are more, but I can’t think of them right now so I’ll stop at 10. It’s a nice round number anyway. 😀
