Ever since I graduated, I have had a lot of time to think about what I wanted to do with my life. I’m now twenty one, single, and unemployed (But I do have plans to continue my education next year).
I realized there are a lot of things I want to do, but I don’t have the resources to do it. One of my biggest goals is for me to settle down, have a family with two children and be a good mother and wife. Hopefully 2012 won’t be the end of us so I can have that.
But before all that, there are also things I would like to do now, while I’m still single and not tied down by commitment.
1. Watch a Broadway Musical
I have always been a fan of musicals, but since I’m not as privileged, the only live musical I have watched is the Charlie Brown Musical staged in the UA&P auditorium in my senior year. Rent, Phantom of the Opera, West Side Story, Singing in the Rain, Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Hairspray are only available to me through their movie versions. I felt really sad when Rent announced its final shows last year, so I won’t be able to watch them live.
I would have wanted to watch Rent live, and if it were still running, I would choose it hands down. Unfortunately it isn’t so if I had the chance to watch a Broadway Musical, it would be between Phantom of the Opera, American Idiot, and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. The last one hasn’t shown yet, so I have no idea how good it will be. But come on, Daniel Radcliffe.
2. Go to Wizarding World of Harry Potter
People who know me well know that I am a Potternerd. Anything Harry Potter related gets me extremely excited. It has been a big part of my life, and I will go as far as saying Harry Potter is the pinnacle of my childhood and a huge part of my teenage years. So now that I’m twenty, Harry Potter still holds a big chunk of my heart, and I don’t think that will ever change. I owe it to the Potternerd in me to have tried authentic Butterbeer before I die.
3. Comic Con
If I’m lucky I will see the cast of my ultimate favorite television series, Psych.
If I’m luckier I will see Doctor Who and Captain Jack. Of course I won’t be able to meet David Tennant as Doctor Who anymore, but Matt Smith is fit too.
4. Visit the Cradle of Western Civilization
If there is one country in the world I would want to visit, it’s Greece. It’s so full of culture. I mean, isn’t it just beautiful?
5. Watch a FIFA World Cup Match live.
Hopefully in Brazil. But it doesn’t matter where, as long as I get to see Kaka and Ronaldo I will be happy.
I’m hopeful that the Vuvuzela will never make a come back in the matches, so I can enjoy it when I watch it live. Ah the excitement of being there during the match!
Of course there are more to my list, but these are my greatest wishes. I hope I can achieve at least half of the list. Yeah, I think I will be content with that. But for now, all I can do is dream, and hope I can earn enough money to make these dreams come true. (Cheesy end for a blog. Sry.)
