10 things I've always wanted to do that I haven't done (yet)
1. Travel outside the United States. I'd love to go almost anywhere in Europe. In a pinch, Canada would suffice, since it's close.
2. Write a book. I've written ideas for books. I've written chapters for books never finished. I need to just DO IT.
3. Go back to school full time. I have no idea what I'd study. I wish I felt passionate about something that I could translate into a career.
4. Win the lottery so I can either write a book or go back to school full time. People always say that money doesn't solve problems. I'd like to form my own opinion on that subject.
5. Visit New York City. It's odd, but 9/11 actually made me want to see the city even more.
6. See the Atlantic Ocean. Or any ocean other than the one I've seen.
7. Smoke pot. But if you're my mom, you didn't just read that. Or maybe you did, and aren't you proud of me for having never done that?!
8. Be in the studio audience of a TV show taping. Maybe Letterman or The View (on a day when Elisabeth Hasselbeck is out touring with Ann Coulter). Or perhaps Oprah. I'm not her biggest fan, but I like the free stuff she hands out.
9. Own a Scottish terrier. Maybe someday. We saw a scottie pup over the weekend, which rekindled my interest in the cocky, black cuties.
10. Live somewhere that's warm and sunny year-round. The older I get, the less my emotional state tolerates cold and snow. But I don't see my situation changing anytime soon, so I guess I'd better invest in heavier coats and bright lighting.
