Bucket List

I watched the movie 50/50 the other night starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The movie is a true story written by a man who had a rare form of spinal cancer. I didn’t see it from the beginning (I don’t have start over 😔) but I came in around the middle, so I saw enough to make me cry. I cried because the movie was sad, but I was also crying because cancer is so unpredictable. It can happen to any one at anytime. The guy in the movie was only 27!! 2 years older than me! I won’t say how the movie ended so that I don’t spoil it for those who haven’t seen it but I will say that I cried so hard that my eyes were swollen. I was devastated because I realized that I haven’t done ANY of the things that I wanted to do. Sure I’ve been to Vegas and completed my undergraduate degree. But I haven’t even been to New York. I haven’t been out of the country, I never performed spoken word and had people snap their approval. I’ve always wanted to start a blog, own my own business. I want to record a mixtape about my failed relationships rapping/singing Kanye style. I want to audition for a TV show. Just to do it. The list is too long to even list here. If I found out I had 24 hours to live I would be devastated. Not because of the things that I have done, but because of the things I haven’t done. According to my Dr. I’m healthy for now, but I figure I better get started on this laundry list of things I want to do while I have the chance. Starting this blog is definitely a step in the right direction.
