In the very long list of “things I do in a vague attempt at cheering myself up”, there`s making a bucket list. Aside from hopefully cheering me up, it also gave me something to do at work in between/during calls, because man that gets really boring.
But, besides entertaining me, it also reminds me of my ambitions, of everything I hope to achieve at some point in my life. It reminds me why I`m going through this crap that gives me money. And although I`m quitting this job soon (mid-August), because it`s getting ridiculous and I want to cry every time I think of it, it does remind me that if anything, I`m not made to be stuck in a call centre and that there`s so much out there I`m working towards.
On the other hand, the life goals list (as I`ve actually called it) also reminds me that there`s so much I want to achieve and have wanted to achieve, but never quite managed. I seem to have the misfortune of every single plan I ever make to fail horribly. Nothing, and I mean nothing, has ever gone as I wanted. Everything I did succeed at was either happy randomstance or teeth-and-claws fighting for it.
So this list has the magical quality of both motivating and demotivating me. But I guess, maybe, if I actually share it with people I might get more motivation to actually get things done. Or at least I hope it does
Because as I`m sure you guys have noticed, I have difficulties with getting things done lately. In fact, I have done absolutely nothing but work, sleep, hang out with my housemates, and hang around on Tumblr and Facebook. I am still struggling with just about everything, and now that I`m scheduled to work until midnight just about every day I`m just too tired to try and do anything else.
So here`s to hoping this`ll work! Also, I`d love to see other people`s Life Goals list. Let`s inspire each other, y/y?
Life Goals (In No Particular Order):
-watch the sunrise at Macchu Picchu
-watch the aurora at the Northern circle in Norway
-make an actual movie
-go to San Diego Comic Con
-learn to fly a helicopter
-do a world tour
-see a Ghibli movie in a Japanese cinema
I`m relatively sure I have more life goals, but these are the ones I can think of when I`m sad and frustrated at work, so I guess they`re the most important ones.
Let me know what you have on your bucket list!
