College Bucket List

A few recent notable firsts in college: went to San Francisco, went to Taco Bell for the first time, went to a frat party. Excuse the potato picture above.

The frat party was pretty awful; I daresay it was worse than I expected, which is saying a lot. It smelled awful, the music was bad, I had beer spilled on me in the first five minutes, nobody was very interesting. I've always thought I was not a party person but now I know for sure. On the plus side a drunk girl complimented my hair, and also I stole a box of dark chocolate almond mint Kind bars, which I later found out are $15 a box, so at least there's that. If I wasn't going to get a satisfying experience out of the party, at least I was getting something.

But I'm still glad I went. It's a step in the right direction when it comes to #trynewthings because I don't want to regret not doing anything in college once I graduate. That said, there are still a number of things that I want to try, and as this semester marks the beginning of the latter half of my college experience, I realize that I'm starting to run out of time. Without further ado, in no particular order, a list of things I want to do before graduating college:

  • go to a concert
  • go to the beach
  • go on an overnight trip with friends
  • go to Ici ice cream
  • go to Cheeseboard
  • ask someone out on a date
  • take a decal for the fun of it
  • visit every library on campus
  • get A's in at least half of my classes a semester
  • participate in a protest (not just observe!)
  • see the llamas during dead week
  • sunrise hike

I'm sure there are more things I want to do but these are all I can think of for now. To be honest, if I can accomplish everything on this list before I graduate I will be pretty satisfied.

After writing these out, I went back and found my old bucket list from over three years ago. It's surprising to see what has remained the same (concert is still at the top of my list), what is different, and what I have accomplished. I'm looking forward to experiencing more and fulfilling my goals in the next one and a half years — nothing to lose and everything to gain. ◊
