Bucket List # 12: Ombre my hair
I want it on summer, just for 2 months. I cannot do it after college or even after pursuing my medical studies because who wants a doctor on a weird hair color, right? But the thought sounds really cool to me!! I just want a new thing for myself, I’m so done with my jet black boring hair.
After my birth month, I’ve been into a lot of books again; maybe because most of my birthday gifts were books. I had no choice but to read it - lol i’m just kidding of course I really love and appreciate those people who gave the books.. that is so much effort, okay!!! So after reading a few books, I was back to my own track. Read, read, read.
I’ve read The Summer I Turned Pretty last week and even though I’m not into cliche novels, I can’t help it but love this book! After reading the book for just a day, I realized that I have a new bucket list to make… A summer beach house.
A summer beach house not only for my family but for my best friend’s family. Someone who’s very dear to me; Whenever I’m sure who I want to be with for the rest of my every summer, I’ll talk to him/her and conceptualize this summer beach house. When this summer beach house already came to life, I believe that we would be a bit boring, to that, the oldies - us - will just stay on the porch, enjoying a lemonade and talking about our past lives and the bad decisions we’ve made before. And the one who’ll really benefit this experience? My kids.
Bucket List # 8: Sleep-Over Room
The Sleep-Over room is the first thing I will consider at the time when I’m already able to afford my own house, maybe 10-15 years from now. This will be our family’s favorite place and even my future kid’s friends’ favorite. I can imagine my brothers and I watching How I Met Your Mother, FRIENDS and Big Bang Theory in here when they come to visit us during the Christmas season; we’ll talk about our lives and our childhood until we can’t hold it anymore. A part of me wants to graduate already and start the real life.
Bucket List # 7: Infinite Moments
Infinite moments only last shortly. It may sound ironic but it’s reality. No matter how hard we try to have those infinite moments, the car will still stop no matter what. It will run out of gas, it will take a break, it will get tired. At the end of the day, I still have to continue my studies and focus on my dreams. I do not ask for infinite infinite moments. What I ask for are only moments that I can never forget. Moments that I will be infinite.
Bucket List #1: Stay in California for a year
I want a small beach house in California. With someone or without someone, I know I’d be fulfilled because going to California has been my life-long dream ever since. I want California to surprise me with everything that it has. I want to get lost in San Diego, Los Angeles or San Francisco. Eureka.
“Are you even aware that your study would take 10 years for that?” The common things I get when people would hear my dream – to be a doctor. I can remember the times when I was still in Kindergarten, and all my teachers and classmates know that I really wanted to become a doctor but that dream vanished once in a while. Then new visions came up: architect, engineer, nurse and even a flight stewardess. But even with those things, God just planted a desire in me. I came back to my first dream, to become a doctor.
I am aware–really aware–of the fact that I’ll stay in college for some time but that will be nothing because I love this, this is my dream. I do not know what would it feel to enter to that kind of pressure and those sleepless nights but I believe I can. And I’m ready to pursue it because I know that God had planted this in me. I’m not saying that this would not be hard. Sacrifices, I guess.
