buck·et listnoun: bucket list; plural noun: bucket listsa number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish before dying.
I am, however, coming close to the end of something… my college career. As I prepare to close this chapter of my life, I realize there are some things I have never done, as well as some I have, that I need to experience before I leave college. Thus I have decided to create a Senior Year Bucket List.
My friends and fellow bloggers, Laura and MaryEllen, helped to come up with the list.
Each time I accomplish something on the list I will cross it off this post as well as share my experience in a new post!
Become a blogger Land an internship
- Go to Senior Ball
- Road trip with friends
- See my first concert
Attend a Toga Party Dress up for Halloween and go trick-or-treating
- Take a class outside of my major
- Join a new organization on campus,specifically one I would usually never consider
- Watch SlapShot
- Audition for a role in the school play
- Sing the national anthem at a varsity game
- Become a vegetarian for a week
Have lunch with my favorite professor
- Hike a mountain
- Run a 5K marathon
- Be an ally
- Take an upper level art course
- Go on a real date
- Study Abroad
- Volunteer at a soup kitchen
- Learn a new language
- Join an intramural sports team
- Take a tour of the Saranac Brewery
My list is in no particular order and I am giving myself one school year to complete it. The first thing off my list is Become a blogger. I’ve always wanted to bog/vlog but never really knew what about until one day while I was reading through the Daysheet I spotted an ad for UC bloggers wanted. I contacted Ryan Mortensen in the Office of Advancement and then within a week or so I was a UC Blogger. I even got my picture on the website (ironically that has always been a life goal of mine, I am also now on the Homecoming brochure!)
I hope my list inspires you to start your own and hopefully not wait until your senior year to have all these great experiences! Feel free to comment things that are on your own bucket list or ones you suggested I should add to mine.
