Sunshine, Reflection & Buckets

Thoughts from my short walks through campus…

Today is a gorgeous spring day in Minnesota.  These are the days I dream about during the depths of winter.  The sun is high in the sky with no clouds to block its rays.  The temperature is moderate in the upper 40s and there is a slight breeze, perfect “sweatshirt weather”.  Days like today make me realize how lucky I really am; I have already done so much and I will soon be a college graduate with a bright future ahead.  What more can you ask for?  Great family, great friends?  Yep, I’ve got those too.

So now I look toward the future after a bit of reflection, and realize that the potential is truly unlimited.  Beyond my big move which I talk about endlessly, and my new job, there is so much out there to do and see.  This becomes more apparent to me all the time and I can’t wait to get out there and go for it.  This sparks a thought, what kind of experiences top my (bucket) list?

1. Live in a foreign country for at least a year

2. Travel to all seven continents

3. Participate in a rally race with my older brother

4. Offer a scholarship

5. Ski (cross country) in the Alps

6. See a WRC event in person

7. Learn another language (can be combined with #1)

So many more things to list.  How can I choose what makes the list and what doesn’t?  Anybody out there have similar items on their list?
