what if your webcam was on right now and was broadcasting in Times Square

I have a thing for bucketlists. Every year, I make a bucketlist of things I want to accomplish. I have a life bucketlist. Fuck, I even have a bucketlist for my summer breaks.
- Road trip to San Diego (Phil’s BBQ, SD Zoo, & La Jolla are a must)
- Learn how to stand up paddle board
- Show LA to people who have never explored it before
- Learn important life lessons from hospital experience in Guatemala
- Go abroad (less than two weeks left!!!)
- Get another job but this time, actually do something I like
- Go on a late night food adventure for donuts
- Make it onto Dean’s List!
- Beach bonfire with a huge group of people (hall bonfire, hopefully!)
- Climb the rocks at Little Corona Del Mar
- Win a 1v1 game of beer pong
- Watch an on-campus show (preferably something new aka not a musical)
- Keep the plants we planted in the nursing school garden alive for as long as possible
- Walk back at the break of dawn
- Catch up on all ten seasons of Grey’s Anatomy
- Find the best spot to catch a sunrise on campus
- Return to my favorite hobby of all time, photography
- Learn a new hobby because one isn’t enough
- Get crossed (when I feel ready to do so)
- Write a letter to myself for when I turn 25 and 30. Fuck.
And above all else, make the most out of the last few months of being a teenager. As excited as I am to enter what is supposed to be the best decade of my life, I feel sad knowing I have to leave behind the angst, horror, frustration and stupidity of being a teenager. So here’s to three more months of teenager-hood.
"I just try to live every day as if I’ve deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it, as if it was the full final day of my extraordinary, ordinary life."
"We’re all traveling through time together, every day of our lives. All we can do is do our best to relish this remarkable ride."
"The first time with all the tensions and worries that stop us noticing how sweet the world can be, but the second time noticing."
A few of the lessons I learned after I watched About Time. You’d probably have to watch the movie in order for these quotes to make complete sense.
I’ve been trying to appreciate the little things and today, for the first time, everything was beautiful. The weather was perfect, the sky was bluer than blue, and the greens around me seemed to glimmer in the sunlight. Even Los Angeles traffic couldn’t distract me from the fact that the world around me was beautiful. Everyone who held a special place in my life looked and sounded beautiful. March 10, 2013 was the day I saw how amazing the world can be. And that even with barely any sleep and minimal social interaction, life can still seem perfect.
