BC Bloggers Meme: 5 Things You Want To Do Before You Get Old

When you are asked "what are the 5 things you want to do before you get old?" you'd probably stop and wonder, how old is old?  For me, 85 is still young.  My grandfather left this world at the age of 105 and his cousin is around 103 and still kicking her grandson's behind in beer drinking.  So how do I go about answering this question?

Does old mean you can't jump and run anymore?  Or you travel with one bag full of medicines or with an oxygen tank.  I'm still a bit far from that category.  I had a hard time thinking about the 5 things I want to do.  I suddenly feel like I'm losing purpose in life because I can't even name at least 5 things I want to do.  Anyway, after some thinking here is my list:

First on the list and the only thing I didn't have to think before answering and that is to reproduce.  Reproduce as in "go and multiply" kind of thing.  We actually had been trying for almost 2 years now.  Aparently, the stork got stuck somewhere else.  So we just have to wait more and pray harder that the stork will finally knock on our door.



Next is to visit at least five countries in my travel list.  Top on the list is Russia! I don't know why I would so love to visit this country.  Stare at St. Basil's Cathedral, visit museums and be a stranger to a cold place.  My husband always discouraged me about the place.  Still, I am so enthralled with the history of this country.



So while I visit countries with winter, I mean the real winter.  I would really like to play in the snow and make a snowman.  Hubby once took me to Mall of Emirates because they have this huge in-door ski resort called Ski Dubai.  They have snow, or ice, whatever they want to call it.  Still its not the real deal.



I have always wanted to learn a new language, but I always get bored and discontinue researching.  So before I grow old and my memory will not be as good as now, I'd like to learn a new language. Maybe I should sign up with free learning sessions in the city.  Who knows, if I did sign-up, I'll not get bored.  This makes up my list number 4.



Lastly, I'd like to learn how to dance. Yes.  I do.  Seriously, I could sway, I could move but I just want to dance like I am actually dancing not like a vibrating sack of rice.



I bet there are better list than what I have here.  Who knows? I guess its time to stalk other BC Bloggers they might give me new ideas to add on my what to do list.

    don't lose hope, in due time the stork will knock-knock on your door; learning a new language is so tough, hirap.

  11. i love the idea of learning new language. i know someone who became a mom after 12 yrs of waiting. kung kelan nag-give up na siya at accepted na niya na hindi siya magkakaanak, saka siya nabuntis. in His time, he will give you the desires of your heart.

  17. Have you tried to visit a doctor? Maybe your tube is blocked. Try to have it checked up by an expert. Who knows? Pag tumama, ninong ako ha.:-).

  24. Your wish on dancing sounds exciting. You just need to pinpoint first what type of dance do you love and I'm sure you'll come across with a good instructor soon. In one point of my life I also wished to dance gracefully.:)
