Farewell Cruel World!

So eventually we are all going to die. That sucks, right? Well, I guess if nothing else can be done to stop our inevitable demise we can at least figure out some of the things we want to do before we die. One way one can accomplish this is by writing a bucket list.

Here is a bucket list of 5 items I have created.

1) Go to Australia.

I used to want to move to Australia when I was little and now I kind of feel obligated to my past self to at least go and visit it once.

2) Get a book published.

My dream job would be to be an author. I would like to get over my dislike of sharing my work and try and publish a book one day. However, I still won’t let anyone around me know I have accomplished this, so they don’t seek my book out and judge it. Though I will still have to come up with a fun pseudonym to write under.

3) Own a unique pet.

Most people have cats and dogs. At some point in my life, I would like to own an unusual pet, be it a snake or chameleon or something equally out of the ordinary.

4) Learn how to ride a motorcycle.

It just seems like it would be something cool to know how to do. Besides, I do look awesome in motorcycle jackets.

5) Eventually be able to live without COVID restrictions.

This one isn’t really on me, but it’s been going on for years now and every time I think we might finally be heading back to the way things used to be there also suddenly seems to be a new variant. I would like for life to eventually go back to normal, so the universe better grant my wish before I die!

In the words of Bob Ross from The Joy of Painting, “You need the dark in order to show the light”. In this case, we need the looming darkness of death in order to help show us all of the incredible things we can do with our lives.

    One item on my bucket list is to be in a motorcycle gang for just about a week. I think traveling across country or just state lines with a group of people on a motorcycle has a thrilling, yet relaxing vibe to it. I have never been a very strong writer myself, so I think it is very impressive that you would like to publish a book. I totally understand the fear of letting others see something you have worked so hard on. What kind of books are you interested in writing?

    I really liked the connection you made to Bob Ross at the end of your post. The quote was perfect after talking about a bucket list. I too want to live without COVID restrictions – maybe then I’ll be able to do all of the incredible things in life (maybe for me its not riding a motorcycle, because I like to stick with things that have 4 wheels LOL).
