The Bucket List

1. Learn Spanish
Yeah I did start off but it just fell in between work somewhere

2. Learn the guitar
I’m half tone deaf but I’d still like to

3. Go paragliding
Or parasailing or even bungee jumping. I should probably start off with bungee jumping. Or head straight into diving out of the sky… cuz these days i’ve become a bit of a chicken. I like being a drama queen but being a chicken for the drama is a little… sad.

4. Exercise
Not to lose weight. Just to be healthy and toned. I took a gym membership – the first time i let it lapse without ever entering the gym. The second time I did two weeks before annoyance with the trainer (who gave me exercises meant for people who want to lose weight when I repeatedly told him i’m there just for fitness. I’m thin for heaven’s sake. Or was then) and other activities (like my belly dancing class) interfered.

5. Catalogue my library
I’ve been trying to do this for the past 6-8 years. Everytime I try, my computer crashes.

6. Visit East India
Always wanted to. Wanted to visit the tribes and stuff before they disappear. Actually visit any place which still retains its native tribes and customs. And do NOT say the urban tribe. I live in a city jungle!

7. Have an exhibition of my paintings
And now my photos too. This has been on the list forever! I paint only when i’m depressed… and i’ve been depressed but without time… and when I’ve time, i’m alright. And I don’t want to be sad, so the painting count has stalled over the past few months.

8. Visit Istanbul and Budapest
Yeah… the travel list didn’t really have these places on the list. But I woke up one day and I realised that is where I wanna go next. Don’t ask me why. This is how the travel bug works and i’m glad it is functioning again.

9. Visit Sundance Film Festival
Not sure if this is an inspiration from my recent Entourage-watching or if I am finally becoming aware of the fantastic movies that come out here… maybe it was both. I knew about the movies and I got to see a glimpse of the place in the sitcom… and now I REALLY  wanna visit that place. Along with a couple of other film festivals… not Cannes so much yet. Sundance it is for now.

  2. Wow, its liek i’m reading my own thoughts, especially about the painting… and i’m on the exact same page with spanish and guitar! Its nice to know there’s another person in a similar place scattered across the globe. Where on the globe are you?


      1. Well…yeah.
        Istanbul is a really magical place…because it is between continents and so many cultures have been there. There is amazing sights, but I especially like the small streets up around Galata tower, also the Pierre Loti coffee shop on a hill. The Bosphorus…Haya Sofia Mosque is also remarkable.Ah, and not to forget the spice market 🙂 And u should go in spring, when tulips are in bloom. Ah, I cannot wait…to go next year again. *in love*
        I hope I get a chance to go back to Delhi too…I miss…
