Personal Reflection

What I Want To Do In Life

Some things I want to do before I die.

Publish a book.

For as long as I can remember, I dreamed of becoming an author. I’m nowhere near publication right now, but check back with me in several years, okay?

Interview a celebrity.

I’ve been thinking about interviews lately for some reason. Also, I use the word “celebrity” loosely. Anyone successful. Author, athlete, actor, etc. Anyone cooler than me essentially.

Run a marathon.

As a kid, my endurance wasn’t that bad. During track events, I chose the longer distances. Then again, I remember going to a track meet at another school and not wanting to do the race. I didn’t come in last at least. In my high school fitness class, we had to run 5K at the end of the semester. I survived. Somehow.

Host a party.

Social anxiety means people and parties aren’t my thing. I didn’t go to formals. I didn’t go to prom. So for me, hosting a party will be quite a challenge.

Start a book club.

First, I need to find strangers who like to read. Then I have to get them to be my friend. That’s not an easy task because I seem to scare normal humans away. Let’s not get into my pettiness or the fact I burn bridges like people burn matches. Maybe I’m better off starting a virtual book club.

Knit a scarf.

If you’re willing to teach me how to sew, I’m willing to learn. I can teach you how not to sing in return. Sounds like a fair trade if you ask me.

  1. Sounds like a fun list! I know how to knit, but I’m not sure how easy it is to show you virtually. There’s many Youtube videos though. Virtual book club and hosting a party sounds enjoyable provided you have a theme.

  2. These are all great goals and similar to mine in some ways. I’ve always wanted to host (or even attend) a murder mystery party and would love to throw one when my mystery book launches. I just have no friends to invite, lol.
