Yes. I have a bucket list. Or, I will start one. I wish to accomplish all of this before I die. It's based off of this:
"A human being should be able to
change a diaper
plan an invasion
butcher a hog
conn a ship
design a building
write a sonnet
build a wall
set a bone
comfort the dying
analyze a new problem
program a computer
cook a tasty meal
Specialization is for insects." -Robert A. Heinlein
Let's do this. I want to become an honorary human being. I'll go through one of these per entry, and hopefully in a month or two months, I will complete this. Of course, the last one will hopefully be put off for a while. Oh, and these will be done enthusiastically. No half-assing. That would make me half-human.
Maybe this will inculcate a sense of persistence. My next years of schooling would be so much easier if it did. And maybe I'll add some more of others or my own. Feel free to suggest ideas!
I can't put this on my resume or college applications, but this is more geared toward self-assurance. If I can accomplish at least 75% of these, I will die happily.
I invite you to do the same. Maybe this'll turn into one of those blogging memes. That'd be really cool. Robert A. Heinlein would be proud.
