Through the eyes on Shay....
For those of you who don’t know, a ‘bucket list’ is a list of places, events, or personal goals that someone wants to accomplish within their lifetime. There is no such thing of having small, silly, or for that matter, too many dreams! Life is a wonderful gift and it’s never too late to turn those dreams into a reality.
Below, are some of the things that I want to cross off my bucket list:
The furthest I have traveled from Canada is back to Iran, my home country. Aside from that, I have took a road trip to Buffalo, New York twice; once for a shopping trip at the Walden Galleria, and another time for an indoor rock concert. Some places that I wish to visit are: Veradaro, Cuba; Paris, France; Rome, Italy; Las Vegas, Nevada; and Sydney, Australia.
Swim With Dolphins:
Dolphins appear to be very friendly mammals, but I have a slight fear of the unknown. If I were to cross this off from my list, that would mean that I traveled, swam with dolphins and tackled a fear. Three birds with one stone.
Jumping off a bridge sounds frightening, especially if you are scared of heights. The most adrenaline that I felt was on roller coasters at Canada's Wonderland. I want to take it up a notch and get the full experience at the Great Canadian Bungee in Ottawa.
Run a marathon:
Staying in shape is one of the hardest commitments. It’s one thing to be fit, but it’s another to be fit enough to run a marathon. Supporting a charity is also important to me, and I think that this will give me the drive to one day complete a marathon (maybe in first place!)
Do The EdgeWalk at the CN Tower:
Although I can sign up for this any day during the summer, it’s not that easy. One must mentally prepare to walk 1,168 feet above the ground for 1.5 hours. This would be a thrill of a lifetime that I want to experience.
Here is another adrenaline activity on my list. The idea of flying across the ocean and getting a chance to see the world below me from thousands of feet in the air, excites me.
Eat Sushi in Japan:
I consider myself as a foodie. As you can already guess by the sub title, sushi happens to be my favourite dish. It will be a neat experience to not only explore the Japanese culture, but a chance to eat some of the best sushi in the world.
Concert in Another Country:
Even though I mentioned that I went to Buffalo for a concert, I want to have the experience of going to a concert in a country that speaks a completely different language. Why? I think it’s amazing to know that although we might be separated by a language barrier, I would be surrounded by people who know every lyric to my favourite songs!
Create My Own Makeup Line:
Personally, I am a big fan of makeup, and I can't get enough. I am always on the hunt for new products that work well with my face. As a creative and detail oriented person, with years of experience with makeup, I would be ecstatic if I had this opportunity.
What’s on your bucket list?
