My Bucket List at 19

My Bucket List at 19 - I have kept notebooks as long as I can remember. I found an old notebook from college that had several written bucket lists from over the years. One particular bucket list caught my eye and I had to share.

As I shared before, I have kept notebooks as long as I can remember. As I was decluttering my night stand, I found an old notebook from college. It had several written goal lists from over the years. One particular list caught my eye and I had to share because it is hilarious and even embarrassing to think of what mattered most as a teenager. I can’t believe I’m willing to share.

The year was 1998. I was 19 and completing a summer internship at Stanford University. I was surrounded by computer science geeks (Ummm…I guess I was one too now that I think about it.) and I missed my family, friends, and boyfriend (Five years later, that boyfriend became my husband.). I decided to start a list. Little did I know, it was what we now call a bucket list. It went a little something like this:

Short and Long Term Dreams and Aspirations (in no particular order):
Graduate PVAMU (Praire View A&M University) December 1999
Obtain a Master’s degree July 2005
Obtain a summer internship (on my own) June 1999
Get a new stereo with a CD changer 👈🏾 Wow. This one.
Get a video camera 
A family and marriage (marriage first) Married 2003, Son born 2008, Daughter born 2010
Get a Krinkle dog and Rottweiler  I ended up with a pit bull, too many English bull dogs and a French bull dog that are all now deceased. I no longer have a desire to be a dog parent.

Coach purse

To make a 4.0
No wire hangers My OCD begins
To get above a 630 on the GMAT I took the GRE instead
To join a gym and exercise Little did I know I would become a semi-gym rat obsessed with new workouts

I guess it’s time for some new dreams and goals. I have a new notebook and now I just need to fill it with a new bucket list…and that’s the hard part. Sigh.

Hugs and love,
