  1. This is a great idea but I suppose you could spend a lifetime just working on one of them! Hope it’s going well, it’s an interesting list, I realized I have ambitions for about a quarter of these. Won’t happen though!


    1. Anytime I work on writing and I’m in heaven – hehe! Thanks for the well wishes. I just love goals. I’m definitely a goal-oriented person – they make me happy. My job is to actually do something about them since I can like the idea of a goal more than actually doing it. But I think that’s mostly from laziness and fear of failure. But a while ago I came to a point where I realized even if I fail, I’m okay because I’m doing what I love. I also learnt about passion since I’m not much of a passionate person – more of a melancholy person. But I realized that writing is my biggest passion and that’s what keeps me going. Sorry, thinking out loud, reflecting on my journey. Anyway, hope all is going well with your goals too!


  2. I love your bucket list, if I would get around to writing mine it will be almost identical (ok, maybe not poetry – I am not that brave). Thank you for inspiring me. I think I will get to work on putting my writing bucket list together.
