Upon the eve of my graduation little over a year ago, and faced with a massive thesis and plagued with a biblical case of procrastination, I made what came to be known amongst my friends as “The Bucket List”. I thought about the possibilities of my LA life once graduate school had passed and I was left with free time and energy to pursue things that I wanted.
Here’s a small excerpt from the entry:
I have high hopes for the next year. I’m not even going to add my social and professional goals that I hope to accomplish in a year’s time. I have a year from May 13th to get this done.
Can I do it? I think so. Will I complete everything? Probably not, but I have some goals. And what’s life without goals? I think this will bring me some of the adventure that I’ve been waiting for,and the key is that I spent most of time waiting.
Okay…perhaps the last sentence was a little dramatic. But at the time, I was feeling a little “telenovela” from daily issues of internet privacy and figuring out how to fit my immediate family into my studio apartment for four days over Graduation Weekend.
Fast forward to now. Social and professional goals are met/in process. I got a new job at a great company, which will allow for lots of growth opportunities and it actually pays me with a living wage. And a year ago this week, I met a wonderful boy who has been making me insanely happy ever since. So check.
As for the rest of that list, I haven’t looked at it since I wrote it down. I don’t remember a lot of what was on there, but honestly, that was the point. Intrinsic fulfillment. Let’s see how we did…
