10 things before I die

The Blog This Challenge for this week is as follows: Tell us TEN things you want to do in your lifetime that you’ve yet to achieve. It can be as simple as learning to knit, or bungee jump, skydive, maybe eat a whole lobster or travel somewhere, meet a penpal – anything!

So here’s mine in no particular order. It’s easy because I already have a list with some things being crossed out as they have been achieved. (e.g. Getting residency in Australia, Meeting Adam Gilchrist)

10. Learn a new language

9. Write a book and get published

8. Have a dog. Or two or three…

7. Get my family on holiday to Australia. More than just once.

6. Travel all around Australia

5. Attend an English Premier League match in England. Preferably Liverpool v Chelsea

4. Join a cricket team and play club cricket. Or soccer.

3. Bungee jump in NZ

2. Get another degree. Preferably in Child Clinical Psychology

1. Own my own house

Now to start seeing whether I can in fact achieve any of these!
Until next time,

    Hey I really liked that list. It is such a simple one. None of the points are like ‘Travel to the Moon’ or ‘buy an island’
    Feels good to know that people will still give an honest answer if genie appears and grants a wish. Its not like ‘lets ask for something Huge now that the genie is here’ 😀

    Your point no.1 seems to be on high priority for me right now. When you do it, just remember one thing.. dont lose patience. 🙂

    @ Soin: I’m a Liverpool fan first and then a Chelsea fan. Hence the preference.

    @ G: Oh I would be so grateful for a genie right now…even if it was one wish! I definitely know which one I’d be asking for…No. 1. And good luck with your search!

    @ Nu: So you want a degree in the same area that I mentioned?

    @ Matt: Thanks. As for language…not sure yet. Maybe German. Or Spanish or Italian. And do let us know when you buy your island! 🙂

    @ The Survivor: Thanks! 🙂

    @ PinsnAshes: Maybe German or Italian or Spanish. And good luck with getting your doggy…hope to see pix when you get one. 🙂

    no. 7. :)….guess you know why!!!

    @ Blue Mist: Looking forward to your list 🙂

    @ Shankar: Well, I would be going for Liverpool in this match though…I’m a Reds supported all the way…

    @ Aditya: Oh nice…what dog have you got? I’ve always wanted one but parents wouldn’t let me and now because I stay in a unit block, I am not allowed to! Damn…can’t wait to get a house! 😛

    @ Nu: Ah okay! Good luck with that… 🙂

    @ Sid: That’s awesome. Will keep it in mind and someday in the far future, plan a trip during this time to the UK…even if it is only to watch the game 😛

    @ Sonu: Hehe…yep I know why you like No. 7

    @ Tom: Welcome! And thanks for the lovely comment

    @ Nu: It’s not too bad. A collection of short stories…it’s nice to read about familiar places but somehow not very gripping. Most stories have ended in a disappointing manner for me…

    @ Neeraj: Welcome! Well, it’d be great if they could be realised soon…then I could die content 🙂 But I doubt it! 😛

    @ Miss Carly: Welcome! And thanks 🙂

    @ Lizzie: Thanks! Well, I’m not completely freaked out by heights but who knows what will happen when I try to bungee jump…I think my fear of plummetting may just get the better of me! 😛

    @ EternallyMine: Welcome! And that’s really cool to know…it’s a date…for whenever I decide to do it! 🙂

    @ Elissa: Welcome! Nice to know more Reds supporters! Too bad about not being able to watch a game but hey, you travelled 😀
