My Wish List

I was having a discussion with an old friend when the topic of bucket list came, where I realized I have stopped making plans or stopped making plans on paper over the period. But somehow I haven’t stopped dreaming about things, things I would like to do someday. And I realized that dreamer inside me hadn’t died yet and I had a Bucket List all along in my head. So I thought why not put this dream list or most people often called as Bucket List here on my Blog as a page. I will also add a bit of trivia about these wishes here for my and your sake. So that when in future I look at my list I should know from where the idea of this fascination came.

As Walt Disney says “If you can dream it, you can do it.”

  • To learn contemporary or freestyle of dancing.
    • Trivia: I love dancing, but I stopped dancing sometime after getting married, I forgot how the simple act of it made me alive until recently, where I got back to it again. Learning a dance form was always on my list as I am not a trained dancer, I choose contemporary and freestyle as I feel that this dance form will help me in connecting with my inner self. Moreover, I think I will learn it pretty fast.

  1. “To have a small house of wood in the forest by the lake or the river” – That’s my number one.
    I live in NYC, but I’ve never been to a Broadway show and I love dancing in the rain. There’s something so magical and enchanting about it.
