Today is my birthday. I am 29. Not in the "Hey, I'm 40, but it's cute to say that I'm 29' kind of way - I'm actually 29. The first day of the final year of my twenties.
THIS is a sexy age to be. I've come to a few major decisions regarding this year. I'm going to LIVE, and live well, and live like the seat of my pants are on fire.
I'm still working on the details.
I have come up with a short list of things I want to do. My aunt Kathy remarked on my Facebook page that I have really lived whereas others have just dreamed. I agree, to a point, but I still don't feel like I've taken the huge bite out of life that I would like. I still feel like, if I were sitting in a room with my friends and we shared life experiences, I would still be behind in the game.
For example, SEVERAL of my friends have spent extended amounts of time overseas. I don't even have a passport.
That's #1. Get a passport.
Now here's a short list of a brain dump of things that I will check off my bucket list before the big 3-0.
#2 Use the passport. Go anywhere. I don't care, anywhere.
#3 Skydive. Fuck it. Fall and hope the chute opens. (Maybe I'll do this toward the end of this upcoming year, just in case.)
#4 Learn to climb.
#4 Turn off the t.v. Actually, sell the t.v., and listen to music, books, silence. Whatever. (This isn't a financial hardship because I paid $25 for it at Goodwill).
#5 Have a threesome. Yeah, I said it. :)
#6 Go to Mardi Gras. And do it up. Beads, beads, everywhere beads! Pee in the streets! Get dirrrty, and totally lose myself in the fantasy of it all.
#7 Get a motorcycle.
#8 Walk a meditation path at night, by candle light.
What else? What's on your bucket list that I can steal in the last year of my twenties?
