Here are some things I need to/want to do before I leave on my mission. More specifically, these are things that I bet you had no idea I wanted to do (listed in order of could possibly happen to no way is this ever going to happen):
-Two words: Dance Party!
- Chew as much Shaun White gum as possible. Because it is the best gum ever. Partly because it tastes delicious. Mostly because it has Shaun White on the front.
- Watch this video and videos like it ad nauseum.
Love Divine Comedy videos. And this one's a keeper. I mean, dance party in the Testing Center? Awesome.
- See War Horse the movie. I need to see it. Need to.
- Watch the last episode of BBC's Sherlock. Again, needs to happen.
- Use as many italics as I can.
- Go to Divine Comedy's January show.
- Make chocolate croissants.
-Find Narnia in my closet.
- Learn how to speak whale.
- Learn how to speak Russian-whale. Because I bet that's what narwhals speak. And possibly beluga whales. And who wouldn't want to talk with a baby beluga whale?
- Find an open field and start singing, "The hills are alive with the sound of music!"
- While I'm at it, find a retired, widower Naval officer with 7 children and teach them the joy of music.
- Finish those novels I've been working on recently. (And yes, finding that Naval officer with 7 children is far more likely than finishing these novels.)
- Get an appendectomy. Just kidding. Well, kinda. I don't want to go through surgery three weeks before I go into the MTC. But one of my worst nightmares is having to go through surgery in a foreign country. So let's just pray that I don't get appendicitis. Ever. But especially while I'm on my mission.
-Grow all my hair back before I leave. Guys, I chopped it all off. And it's so weird. I miss my hair!!!!!
. . . also, I just realized that I am a pre-mi now. I always associated that nickname with 18-year-old boys who decided that the milk chug challenge was the best idea since Call of Duty. But I'm a pre-mission girl now. Weird. Hopefully I'm more mature than most eighteen-year-old boys. But with some of the things on my pre-mission bucketlist, maybe I'm not as mature as I hope.
