The First List

After a bit of reflection, I decided that I am finally going to make up one of those lists that everyone is making these days, something like 100 things you want to do before you die or similar. Only mine will be a little bit shorter than that, so don't worry :D

Seeing as it is only about 3 months until I turn 19, I think that gives me ample time to get a lot of these actually done by the time I turn 20. I think that that is the general idea. When I get to 20, I want to have done all the things that people generally do by that stage. Or something like that. I just liked making the list to be honest. So here it is :


#1 - Have a Surfing Lesson / Learn how to surf
       it just looks like SO much fun, and it is really something that I wish that I could do already.
#2 - Learn How to Skateboard to get around places
       I used to be able to roll on a skateboard, but it would be cool to actually do. Plus it would get me up and moving
#3 - Go to a concert
       It's just something that I think I should do a lot more. I really want to see a lot more homegrown artists and stuff like that to
#4 - Try DJing
       I know that if I put my mind to it, I could do it. I just really have to get stuck in and try it out, and really I just want it to be something that I could have fun with, not anything professional or really intense at the moment.
#5 - Get a hairstyle that I can actually recreate
       Unfortunately, my hair is pretty much the bane of my existance. The hair stylists always make it look so good, but do you think that I could ever make it look as good as they do? NEVER. I'll just have to get them to teach me, or something like that :D
#6 - Swim with dolphins
       Again, this is just something that sounds like it is simply a lot of fun. It's something that I've secretly always dreamed of doing.
#7 - Decide what my major will be for uni
      I really just have to make up my mind with this one. When we had to choose a major for uni, i just had no idea what I wanted it to be, but I think that after the first year I will have a lot more of an idea as to what I am able to, and what I want to, do.
#8 - Go snorkelling
      Maybe like, in the Great Barrier Reef, or somewhere exotic like that? With all those wonderful colours and all the fish and sea creatures down there, again it's just something that I would really like to do.
#9 - Take more photos
      And maybe even share a few here. I think that will be like a mini 9 goal, to use more images on my blog. But seriously, I really would like to take more photos. Of everything. Just because :D
#10 - Ask a stranger out on a date
      This is something that I would pretty much never normally do. I really don't think that I'm that type of person, but we'll see how it goes over the next year or so.

So anyway, there is my list of 10 things that I want to do in the next year or so. And don't just think that this is the last you'll hear of these. When I make a list, I am serious. I really want to actually get at least half of these done by the end of the year, and then work on the rest after that. I'll even try and put them up to the side of my blog and cross them off when I do them! And it would be good to hear all of your top 10 things that you want to do before . And it's really surprising, a lot of mine are just really simple things that I think I could actually do without much trouble, which is kind of exciting.

To go along with the "trying new things" subject, I've found a little cracker that you can try out in Sydney. After you have tried your surfing lesson from yesterdays' blog, you can go to Hang Gliding Sydney and see what they have got on offer. They offer tandem flights, which is the only way you can really go about it without becoming a fully qualified hang-glider, I suppose. What is awesome is, and I didn't know this before, you are actually in the air for about half an hour. Which now makes it seem like you're getting a lot more for your money, I thought it was a LOT shorter than that.

Anyway, stop by and say hi, see if you can list 10 things that you want to do and share it with us here! Have a nice day :D

  1. that's a pretty good list you got there. I would share my top 10 list too but it would surely being a permanent "work in progress" list that will most likely go into the hundreds.

    You should put up pics of you in different hair styles to get outside opinions. Also, never be afraid to ask strangers out...its pretty fun.
