A glimpse of my bucket list

Total mess!

I dislike spring clean! Clearing clutter means I have to decide what could stay and what has to go! The windfall: came across stuff that I’ve been looking for! 🙂 And inspired me to write this post!

I want to be able to write and speak simple German and French one day!

Yes, I am dummy…

World, I want to get to know you more!

Be a better climber! Being someone who easily develops muscle, I like how climbing tones up my arms! I also like how it gets my adrenaline going and not to mention the satisfaction I get post-climbing!

Be a better swimmer! I seriously have to find a way to overcome my aquaphobia! I can only swim reasonably well and “carefree-ly” at “controlled environment” such as lanes near the edge of the swimming pool (because I know I could reach the edge anytime!). Being a non-competent swimmer has hindered me in unleashing full potential of my kuat-main-ness (playfulness). I can’t do things like getting my diving license and surfing!

Taking swimming lessons at Unimelb did improve my swimming skill. But I am still not confident (at all) swimming in river/sea... :(

To train up and complete at least 1 full marathon. But this thought is so disheartening:  to be able to do so, my normal training would be half marathons already!

Completed my first half marathon in Nov 2012. How many half marathons I have to run before I can run a full one with ease? :p

To learn to play a type of musical instrument, eyeing on guitar (because it’s portable, budget and popular).

L, playing (or tuning?) guitar, hippo was neglected...

L, playing (or tuning?) guitar, hippo was neglected… I wanna be able to play guitar like him one day!

Shave for a cause (read thisthis and this). I was deeply touched by a story in “Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul” many years back: a friend shaved his/her hair to show support to his/her friend who suffered from cancer that it’s OK to be bald. I used to keep very short hair but I received BAD treatment from guys! -_____- I could really feel the treatment differential after I kept long hair. So, keeping long hair now is my compromise, I just want my life to be easier! :p I would say it takes a great deal of courage to shave. Some might say that shaving is just attention-seeking, something else could be done. But if shaving could achieve the fundraising goal and even promote awareness, why do you judge?

I got discriminated when I kept short hair! :(

Inside the glass bottle…

“I want to walk tall, believe in myself, have the courage to ask for what I want and need, and live a life that mattered. I want to wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and know that I am loved and that I belonged. I am desperate to feel worthy and I am hungry for the opportunity to live my fullest potential.” - modified from "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers" - Debbie Ford

Under the apple tree…

"If you are not spending all of your waking life in discontent, worry, anxiety, depression, despair, or consumed by other negative states; if you are able to enjoy simple things like listening to the sound of the rain or the wind; if you can see the beauty of clouds moving across the sky or be alone at times without feeling lonely or needing the mental stimulus of entertainment; if you find yourself treating a complete stranger with heartfelt kindness without wanting anything from him or her... it means that a space has opened up, no matter how briefly, in the otherwise incessant stream of thinking that is the human mind." - A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle

Inspiring quotes!

If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other? (God in "Evan Almighthy")
“To love another person is to see the face of God.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
Aggie: "But what about the people who hurt you? Don't you ever want to make them suffer?" Norman Babcock: "Well, yeah, but what good would that do? You think just because there's bad people that there's no good ones either? I thought the same thing for a while. But there's always someone out there for you. Somewhere." - Paranorman
"机遇总是偏爱有准备的人"
“You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” by Walter Hagen
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, body totally worn out and screaming "WOOOHOOOO what a ride!" - by anonymous
When you travel, it’s not like you take a part of each place away with you; rather, it’s as if you leave a part of yourself there, like a part of you forever belongs to that place – the time, the people, and the things you saw; and over time, it gets burned deeper into your soul - by anonymous
