This is my final week as a graduate student. Which means I will be moving in the next few months. When I approach the end of my time living in a place I tend to do two things.
- Make lists. Ok…in reality…I do this all the time. List making is less of a time management tool, more of a hobby. But I am talking about a specific kind of list. A list of things I want to do, people I want to see, restaurants I want to eat at…before I leave.
- Re-evaluate…well…almost everything. I get rid of clothes I haven’t worn in while, sort through the documents on my computer. Get things ready for a fresh start when I open my boxes in a new place.
Part of that re-evaluation and list making is looking at my big goals, my dreams. Not the ones that I share with most people…own a house, get married…you know. But I mean the things that I want to do that are a little more unique to me, the list of things I want accomplish or experience or learn, maybe not now, but sometime in the future…my bucket list, if you will.
Bucket List (n.): A list of things you want to do before you die. Comes from the phrase “kick the bucket.” Also, the topic of “Let Other Pens” all week long.
So…do you have a bucket list?
