I was born and raised in Southern California and I'm just now realizing, some twenty two years later, that I've only been to a handful of the United States. I'm no Miss America (nor do I really care to be) but before I die, I'd like to say I've seen a fair amount of the country I spent my entire life in. So, over time I've slowly developed a list of places within the United States that I'd like to see sometime in the next 50 years. It's short, but it's a list in progress.
- North Carolina- Bald Head Island, Cape Feare, Wilmington
- Savannah, Georgia
- Salem, Massachusetts
- Mojave Desert
- New England
On the subject of Lists, which I love to make oh so much, I also started a life list sometime back in college. There aren't really many significant items on it-- a lot of them are everyday things I've overlooked-- but it's mostly just for fun.
- Learn to speak another language fluently
- Sing karaoke in front of a large crowd
Fall in love
- Bowl at least a 200
Go to a rave
- Get married
- Camp out for Black Friday
- Write a short story/book
- Have an elaborate birthday celebration
Start a blog
- See/swim under a real waterfall
- Learn to play piano
- Take a rowboat into the middle of a lake
- Take a dance class
- Master the art of photography
- Take classes at OTIS.
- Buy a photo booth for my future home
- See a show at the Moulin Rouge in Paris
Currently working on #16.
And now for some favorites:
Places: The Village in Claremont; Maui, HI; Disneyland (I know, it's a cliche)
Foods: Popcorn, French Fries, Plain Yogurt. I couldn't live without these 3.
Music: Red Hot Chili Peppers, always will be no matter who else comes along or came along before them (although, I am a sucker for classic rock)
Movies: When Harry Met Sally & Home Alone-- still a child at heart :)
Accessory: My camera
Musical: I could never pick one....Grease reminds me of my childhood, The Sound of Music is a classic and personal favorite, Chicago is timeless, Rocky Horror Picture Show: no words necessary
Season: Autumn, but I do enjoy summer nights
I'll stop before this turns into a Personals Ad...
Feel free to add any suggestions for either list! What are somethings you've always wanted to do before it's too late?
