Bucket List of Bucket Lists

Because when you write it down, it's almost like you have to do it.

Bucket List of Bucket Lists

I am a firm believer that taking the time to create a to-do list allows me to accomplish more things than if I tried to complete the same tasks, sans list. Everyone has a bucket list, either mentally or physically, of things they hope to accomplish before they die. I, however, have taken this one step farther by making a bucket list for virtually every category I deemed worthy enough to take up my time. Here are my top bucket list suggestions.

  1. Movies to watch.

The amount of movies that have and continue to be created is staggering. Scary, romantic, horror, action, action-adventure....so on and so forth. My current movie list has over 100 films on it, so it will take me some time to knock out the whole checklist.

2. Places to travel.

This one is a pretty popular one. The travel-bug is real and people are more prone to hop on a plane to an unknown place than they are to buy a house these days. Australia and Costa Rica are at the top of my traveling itinerary.

3. Books to read.

I encourage everyone to create a book bucket list. I think reading will help you more in the real world than math, but that is a very biased, personal opinion of mine.

4. Ethnic foods to try.

I have recently been introduced to several different ethnic food genres including Vietnamese, Turkish, Indian and Mediterranean. I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed the dishes placed in front of me. As a result, I created a list of other ethnic categories to try and cannot wait to eat my way through this list.

5. Animals to pet.

This may be a more difficult bucket list to finish, but I will pet a kangaroo one day.

6. Plays to see.

I never thought I would be a “play” person, but it turns out I love them. “The Lion King” is my favorite Broadway show, so I have kept that on my list to see for, well, the third time. People keep raving about “The Book of Mormon,” so that is also on my list.

7. College sport events to attend.

For some reason, I have been to a hockey, basketball and football game at Notre Dame. My friend goes there, and I guess we are always feeling particularly sporty when I visit. Now, I am trying to attend all the games of all the major sports at Notre Dame play, just for kicks.

8. Things to do before you get married.

Some people say your life ends when you get married. Although I am hoping this is a false rumor, I do think some things should be crossed off of your bucket list before you get married. Like going to Vegas.

9. Races to run.

This is for the more sportier people out there. I do not have this as a bucket list, but I know people who do. They have a list of marathons and races that they actually want to participate in and finish. Crazy, right?

10. Pick up lines to use.

This one is for pure laughs. I recommend completing this list with a friend.

11. Accents to try.

When in Rome, why not sound Australian?

The list of lists to do is really endless. I guess this article is a bucket list in and of itself. Go me!

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
