The Bucket List : 2018

In no particular order, here goes:

  1. Ride the world’s highest and fastest roller coaster.
  2. Feature in the “credits” of a short film.
    I’d forgotten about this one! Need to figure out how to do this.
  3. Spend an entire night on the beach, watching the stars.
    Done done done, twice over!
  4. Visit the Hagia Sophia, Istanbul.
    Damn. I don’t know when this’ll happen.
  5. Send 100 letters, in all to loved ones. (Yes, letters. Hand-written letters)
    Oh, I’m working on this. Sadly, I haven’t counted, maybe I’ll start doing that. Also, I’d like to update this one:
    Send 100 personally drafted, handwritten or typewritten letters to anybody who asks for one.
    Would you like one?
  6. Be on page 1 of Google Search when my name is typed in.
  7. Attend a Live Coldplay Concert.
    CANNOT believe this happened! And that too, shortly after I sent them a letter. Coincidence? Who knows!
  8. Watch 150 movies. (Not really a movie buff, so that’s a challenge)
    Don’t really know how to keep track of this. 
  9. Try on a long trailing dress, like in Disney movies.
    Hahahaha, 24-yr-old me can’t believe this is on the list.
  10. Get 5 ear-piercings done. (2 down, 3 to go!)
    I think I’d like to re-write this one, I don’t think I want 5 anymore:
    Get 3 ear-piercings done.
  11. Spend at least a month without using my phone or the internet.
    I went off WhatsApp for around a week, but I haven’t gone off the grid, all the way yet.
  12. Go on a blind date. One. Just one?
    Done, purely for the sake of experimentation. 😛
  13. Experience the adrenaline rush caused by the world’s highest bungee jump.
  14. Own a pair of Aviators.
    I’d like to re-write this one:
    Own atleast one pair of RayBan sunglasses, Aviators aren’t my thing anymore.
  15. Call a friend I haven’t spoken to in 5 years or more, just to check if (s)he still remembers me.
    Well, I met somebody after ten whole years. Such a warm fuzzy feeling. So, this one’s partly done.
  16. Eurail. Travel Europe by train.
    Nope, not yet.
  17. Track down my Babaji’s typewriter.
    Oh done done! One of my most p
  18. Learn how to operate the Typewriter without using any online tutorials. Go 100% old school.
    Work in progress, this one.
  19. Read at least 3 books every year starting 2016 for the next 5 years.
    Failing here. Failing so miserably. 
  20. Learn to strum 3 songs on the guitar and sing along.
  21. Go on a solo trip, fund it myself.
    Ah, done. Pondicherry being my first!
  22. Learn how to use eye-liner. Totally not a make-up person.
    Nope. Not here yet.
  23. Update my Bucket List on 21st March, every alternate year.
    A month late this year..gotta buck up!
  24. Learn French, enough to hold a basic conversation.
    I started working on this one, attended classes and wrote tests, but I need to get back to this and actually try using the language before I strike it off my list.
  25. Go on a trip with my sister.
    Himachal! We went to Kasol and Manali in the summer of 2017.
  26. Make an perfect omelette without, having to turn it into scrambled eggs.
  27. Go Scuba Diving!
  28. Be able to run 5 km in 30 minutes.
  29. Go on a trek. A moderate-difficult level trek.

(As of 24th April, 2018)

Lyrics I Love #0208

Now the sky could be blue,
I don’t mind,
Without you it’s a waste of time..

Letter Writing Update #5 : Have you ever thought of writing to me?

Well, if that thought has crossed your mind, I have to say, you’re a beautiful person. I love you already.

I’d love to hear from you, but, before writing to me, I request you to contact me here. I’d like to give you my current address, and maybe get to know you a little bit too! I love surprises, but the last thing I’d want is for you to write to me, but for me to not receive it. That would be a case of total, complete, devastating heartbreak.

And, you wouldn’t want that, I’m sure.

Don’t know what I’m talking about? Let me give you some context.
