I don't have an official bucket list, but there are many things I hope to get accomplished in my lifetime.
Travel. I hope one day I can fill my passport with all types of locations. But I would also love to travel across the US in an RV and explore the wonderful places that America has to offer. I would love to travel to Italy and explore the whole country: the wine, the food, the historic buildings, the romance, the language. In the US, I hope to visit Seattle, Charleston, South Carolina, NYC, and Vegas (again). Luckily, I will be traveling to NYC this September to present a research paper at the annual AAPA Conference! But I'm still trying to raise the money to afford the trip. So if you can spare $5, you would be helping me reach my goal!
Family. I've been married before, and while my marriage failed, I loved being married. I want to get married again and spoil my husband in the typical degrading woman type fashion (cooking, cleaning, etc). Sorry all you feminists out there! I would also love to extend our family with at least one kid - ideally I would love twins! I want daily family dinners and weekly family activities like bowling or hiking..
Rescue. I was involved in dog rescue for multiple years and I fell in love with it. I love dogs and I love helping them because they are so dependent on their humans. One of the best feelings in the world is rescuing a dog and changing his/her life by simply giving them attention, food, and toys. I picture building kennels in a big backyard and housing stray dogs. I think stray dogs found alongside the highway is heartbreaking. I want to have a safe place to keep them until the family is found or until they can find new forever homes (and always spay/neuter them!)
Career. I want to find a career that I love and will be able to start my 401(k). I picture flexible hours, holidays and weekends off to spend with my family, co-workers I love, and a nice paycheck. Isn't that everyone's dream?! I chose to go to graduate school because I love pathology and how you can help patients (without actually seeing patients) and a career as a pathologists' assistant has the possibility of being all those things I want. I have one year left before I graduate with my master's degree and then I will just have to find the perfect place to work!
I may not have any crazy things I want to get done in my lifetime, but I just want a happy, secure life and I want to be able to give back to the community and help people. And if I can go sky-diving or bungee jumping while I'm traveling to exotic locations, I will definitely accept that!
