A little while ago, I overheard a conversation between two elderly people in the bus. She was coming back from a concert. “When you live in London, it’s so easy not to do things” she said. And you know what? She was right.
When I was younger, I wanted to live in a city and finally have access to all these things I couldn’t do. Museums, theatre, musicals, stores, restaurants, all of it. But now that I live in London, I realize that I don’t do quite as much of them as I wanted to. Because life gets inbetween and the proximity, the convenience often makes me reconsider doing them now, because I could “just go anytime”.
But that lady on the bus got me thinking, and made me realize that “anytime” almost always meant never. I decided I had to take actions to save me from myself and (after procrastinating a little bit more, Rome wasn’t built in one day!) chose to tackle it the one way I tackle most issues I come across: by writing a list, and ticking things off it.
So here it goes; my 2015 bucket list!
□ See The Lion King (the musical)
□ Go to Duck & Waffle
□ Make cured salmon
□ Organise something for Restaurant Day
□ Read 25 books
□ Go to Barcelona
□ De-clutter my wardrobe
□ See a ballet
□ Start learning Spanish
□ Loose 5kg
□ Post at least twice a week on this blog
What are your goals for 2015? Do you have a bucket list?
