My Bucket List | What I Want To Do Before I'm 25

April 22, 2015
There's something about a blue sky and a warm sunshine that motivates me to live my life and gives me hope for the future. I should be investing this motivation into revising for my leaving cert but instead I spent some time thinking about what I would like to achieve for my personal fulfilment rather that what is expected of me. I then decided to put these thoughts into actions and have complied a bucket list of things I hope to achieve before I'm 25.

To me, 25 seems a long way away but people always say the years go quicker as you get older so I'm sure it won't be long flying in. As I've already spent 18 glorious years on this earth and achieved nothing out of the ordinary I'm hoping my bucket list will push me to do things that are much more exciting. 

Start University in Galway:
This one is definitely going to happen if all goes well with my leaving cert. I have my heart set on an Arts course in NUIG and I will be devastated if I don't get it. So send lots of motivation my way and cross your fingers, toes and eyes that I get the points needed for my course!

Visit the Eiffel Tower:
I love France! I love speaking French, I love French food and I adore the beautiful country that it is! This summer I plan to visit Paris with my sister Dearbhla and my mum. I am super excited and I am SO looking forward to seeing the Eiffel Tower up close and personal because I think it looks absolutely stunning!

Continue learning and speaking en Francais:
This links back to the previous point - I love all things French, France, Baguettes, all that stuff. Oui. 

Meet some blogging friends:
This one seems a little unlikely as I live in the North West of Ireland where nothing happens and I rarely even see my own friends because I don't leave my house but yeah, I love you guys and I want to spend time with youuuuuu please come sleepover at my house I'll love you unconditionally!!

Go to Japan (for x amount of months):
If you know me personally you'll know I'm a teensy weensy bit obsessed with Japan. I love the Japanese culture, the Japanese style, all things kawaaaaaiiiii and of course, ANIME. I would also love to learn Japanese. If you still don't believe that I'm obsessed, this will convince you: Sometimes when I'm studying I put on anime (in Japanese) and don't even watch it. I just listen to it. I don't even understand it. I am committed to Japan. 

Overcome my anxiety:
This one speaks for itself. I'm getting there but there's still a long way to go but thankfully I have the support I need from my Mama and my little sister and of course all of you lovely lot who remind me that tomorrow will be a better day!

Help people:
This one is a little bit vague, but since I was a child something within me has been urging me on to help people. I don't know what I want to help people with or who I need to help but I just know I want to do it. I get great satisfaction from helping people even if its the smallest thing like cooking the dinner or giving my dog a bath. This may sound a little strange or cheesy but I really think it's my calling in life. 

So there's my bucket list. I would love to read some of the things you hope to achieve - big or small! Let me know in the comments. Have a lovely week! X
