My Birthday Bucketlist

Today is my birthday. I’m 22!! And I feel like this year is going to be MY year. After all I’ve been through last year I feel like I can be who I am and do what I love. And so I made a little list of things I really really want to do this year. Because I feel like it’s now or never!
1. Graduate.
I want this so so bad. I’m already delayed and am a 5th year student. It’s going to cost me a lot of money if I become a sixth year student... I’m just so done with school. I loved my study, I loved everything I learned. But I really need that piece of paper to prove that I finished my study and start with something new.

2. Go to Los Angeles following an EF course.
This is something I’ve googled many many times and quickly closed the tabs after seeing the prices of the courses. I wanted to go to London first. But when I stayed there for 10 days with my friend in 2015 I think that I’m ready to go and see something else of the world than always going back to London. (You can read that  London diary here)
 But last year, when I was in the USA I was so impressed by everything I saw that I really wanted to visit LA. Not just for a few days, but going to school and live in the city for a few weeks. And that’s what EF offers. Even though I’m as scared as a mouse to go alone, I feel like if I don’t do it now I will never get the chance again to travel somewhere for a few weeks. But we’ll see if I ever get brave enough. For now it’s a wish!

3. Do a srprs me
I don’t know if you know about this, but this is an organisation that you go to, you give them your money and tell them if you want a sunny holiday or a city trip and they go plan it for you. Only last minute, just before checking in, you get to know where you’re going. And it seems like an amazing thing to do and lately Sas mentioned it. And I got really excited! So hopefully we’ll do a weekend away with srprs me!

4. Read more books
Since I’m working on my graduation thesis I’ve been reading a lot of books. But not the books I really want to read. On my shelf are lots of unread books but I just don’t have time to read. Or when I finally finished a chapter of my thesis I’m done reading pages and pages of information. So to relax I don’t pick up books right now. When I’m done with my thesis I will read all the unread books on my shelfs and can finally buy more books!

Do something with photography.
I’ve got a camera. I've got stuff. But I don't know how it works properly. And when I’m graduated, I’ve got extra time. So why not do a course somewhere. I’ve heard a co-worker talking about it and that it’s not even that expensive. And I would love to learn more about my dslr. I do read lots and lots of tips on internet, but that camera still holds so many secrets that I want to learn! And my granddad gave me his old tripod for my birthday yesterday. So now I want this more than ever!

These are my whishes for this year and I'm excited to see if I can fulfill all of them..

Cheers on 22 years!
