As exciting as it is with all the blogtober and Halloween posts floating about at the moment, the end of 2016 is also rapidly approaching. I’m not one to usually make a lot of goals for myself, but I feel like I really need to sort myself out in some ways at the moment. As a result of this, I’ve decided to create a list of things I would like to have achieved, or just simply do by the end of this year…
“Bucket list: a number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime.”
I believe that a bucket list is never complete because as you go through life you are always finding new experiences which you want to experience for yourself. Furthermore, over time your choices change. When I was younger I would never have considered going to London to see a show, but now I want to see them all. When I was younger, I didn’t know what Holi, the festival of colour and a major festival in India, was, but guess what, it’s on my bucket list. This doesn’t mean that a bucket list can never be completed, but it can always be added to and I know that over the years I shall definitely be adding to my bucket list, but hopefully crossing lots off too.
“Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave. Our lives are measured by these.” – Susan B. Anthony.
Recently, I have reached one hundred followers on this blog. I am extremely happy to see so many of you, it wasn’t that long ago I reached fifty. Just like then, I am shocked that so many people are interested in my posts, whether you’re here for the book reviews, nail art or anything else.
“Achievement: a thing done successfully with effort, skill, or courage.”
Despite my temporary job, I still have a lot of free time this summer. As a result of this there are several things I wish to accomplish or at least work towards this season. After all, everyone loves to feel a sense of achievement at some point or another.
