My *Updated* Bucket List

This is the result of finding my first bucket list I made when I was 12 years old and didn't know the value of money.

My *Updated* Bucket List

Remember the days of being in middle school and learning about all the places in the world you could travel to? I couldn't either until I was cleaning my room last week and found my old, 250+ bullet list of things I wanted to do before I die, also known as my bucket list. Let me tell you that this was one of the stupidest things I have ever written. I decided to update it and shrink it. After careful consideration, I have created my new version of my bucket list, comprised of 25 items.

1.) Travel to NYC to watch the ball drop.

2.) Pet a dolphin.

3.) Take a picture with the Hollywood sign.

4.) Participate in a color run.

5.) Get a tattoo.

6.) Own a dog of my own.

7.) Have a fun time at Disney World.

8.) Go skinny dipping.

9.) Watch a Superbowl game in person.

10.) Learn sign language.

11.) Listen to the water fall at Niagara Falls.

12.) Attend a "con".

13.) Shop at the Mall of America.

14.) Complete a 23andMe kit.

15.) Witness a sunrise or sunset from a mountain top.

16.) Make a Christmas Eve box for my family.

17.) Graduate college.

18.) Stargaze from a rooftop.

19.) Live it up at Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

20.) Sing my heart out at a bigtime music festival.

21.) Meet one of my idols.

22.) Release a lantern like Rapunzel.

23.) Conjure something up at the Festival of the Dead in Salem, Massachusetts.

24.) Use my passport to go on a vacation.

25.) Visit all 50 states.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.
