I’m going to die.
I put together a list of things I want to do ASAP!
Here’s some mood music to listen to while you read, click the play arrow.
Memento Mori, it’s Latin for Remember that you will die. A Memento Mori is an artistic or symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death. I keep my fathers ashes on display at my house. My friends’ get a kick out of the jokes I tell about how he died. A buddy asked and another friend said that he must have fallen into a gum-ball machine! The ashes are in a crystal sphere. Under the right circumstances, I can see how that story might make sense!
I wrote this list out in order to keep track of things I need to get done before I reach deaths door. I am glad to give you any info or insight on anything I have done, country I have lived in, or goal that I’ve achieved, if you are planning on doing anything similar. More importantly, I am asking for info from you to help me achieve my goals. Do you have any info or experience to share?
What I need to get done:
Right now, I’m considering a move to either Beijing or Shanghai China. Here are a few things that popped up on my radar!
* Happy Magic Watercube! Beijing, China
* Experience Holi, in India!
* Climb Mountains:
Climbed Mt. Fuji, Honshu Island, Japan.
* Spend time camping.
No electricity, just a tent, books, and time to spend alone with my thoughts.
I spent 5 weeks on a mountain in San Sebastian, Spain.
* Cliff Diving
Did that a few times in Hawai’i. It’s probably the most exhilarating RUSH I’ve ever had!
* Swim in waterfalls:
Swam in: The Niagara Falls, NY and Canada.
Want to visit:
Angel Falls in Venezuela.
Ouzoud Falls in Morocco.
Wli Falls in Ghana.
* Excel at Blacksmithing / Bladesmithing , its an ongoing process. I have made several great pieces so far.
* Be a paid model. As in advertise something and be paid to look good doing it.
* Stalk, Kill, and Eat an animal that is at least twice as big as I am. Once with a rifle, once with a spear or machete.
BONUS: Make some sort of trophy from its bones, antlers, teeth, or claws!
* Live on all seven continents:
Africa: I’m looking at, but not limited to Ghana, Morocco, and Egypt.
Antarctica: I want to fish salmon or perhaps hunt in the tundra.
Asia: I want to go to China. I am looking at but not limited to Shanghai. I’ve lived in Malaysia, Japan, Thailand, Fiji, & Singapore.
Australia: I loved life in Sydney, I may be going back.
Europe: England, Spain, and France are some of my favorite places to enjoy.
North America: Mexico is where I honed my “haggling” skills, bargain hunting in the markets and street stalls.
South America: I have my eye on Brazil!
If you haven’t taken the time to get your Bucket List together and make a plan GET STARTED. Because what I forgot to tell you in the beginning is that, you’re going to die too!
