Skinny-dip at moonlight, camp in a bubble tent, holiday in Dubai, dance in Blackpool ballroom, visit Australia and bungee jump for charity… well maybe not the bungee jump.
There are some of the more exciting things I would like to do before I am 30. But there are some more stereotypical things. Move in with my boyfriend, get engaged, get married, get a mortgage, buy my dream house, start a family, holiday in luxurious places every summer. I guess they are quite cliché to many people, but to me they are things that matter.
Since I was a little girl I have dreamt of the things many people take for granted, with my children, passing on memories and special moments. Big Sunday lunches and massive family Christmas dinners, picnics with the extended family at a large wooden table, like something out of ‘Alice in Wonderland’, long walks in the woodlands and returning home covered in mud, finger-dropping on a map and going to that place no matter how bizarre the name might seem. My family and I recently visited Worlds End in West Berkshire. It was possibly the most boring place I have ever visited, but I doubt we will forget that day in a hurry. The place was deserted and centralised around one old, empty pub with freezing toilets.
I aspire to interview a politician, a homeless person, a business man. I want to look at every walk of life and try to understand every perspective within it. I want to make a difference, and give a voice to thousands of disabled people who seem to be the new underbelly of society.
I want to be an established journalist, be known for writing the truth and knowing that I am a reliable source or point of contact.
I just want the simple things in life with a few extras thrown in.
I want to holiday in historic or exotic places with all my family- the Bahamas, China, India, Dubai, New York, Texas, Finland, Greenland and Austria.
I want to visit the world’s most romantic places and see what all the fuss is about, to take high tea at The Ritz with my mum and sister, go up the Eiffel Tower, throw a coin into the Trevie fountain… There are several other things but I can’t think of them all.
I want to live life to the full. Do all the things that make me happy. Never let a day slip me by without enjoying special moments.
