My Bucket List:
One of the first things on my bucket list is to one day meet Taylor Swift in person. She has been such a role model for me, and my idol for years. I can relate to her music very well and I've always pictured her in my head as someone I would be friends with. I know the chances of that are slim, but dare to dream. I've been to three of her concerts so far, and I can't wait to go to even more. The reason I chose these pictures is because I feel that they really capture the essence of her performances, and seeing them brought me right back to my sixth-row seats; it reminded me how wonderful it felt to be there.
Another thing that I've always wanted to do was to travel and see the Northern Lights. I love the nighttime, and I think it would be completely fascinating to see the night sky lit up in pretty colors. I picked these two photos because I love how they really show the colors vividly, and that they look real and not over-edited.
Marriage is another thing on my bucket list. Ever since I was little, I always dreamed of that cliché big fairytale wedding. I can picture myself being in a martial relationship, settling down, and being happy with one person for the rest of my life. The reason I chose these two photos is because I love that they are in black & white. I think they look so flawless and timeless, and I love the angles that they both were caught at.
Another thing I'd like to do one day is own a garden. I have never had a flower garden before, because I live in the woods and there are too many animals. I've tried to grow one before, but the animals like to eat everything I try to grow. So one day when I live in a house, I would like to grow many different flowers, as well as vegetables and fresh herbs to cook with. The reason I chose these photos is because in the first one I like that focus and how everything in the background is blurred, and in the second one I like the vibrancy of the flowers.
I have always wanted to see an ocean sunset. I've been to the beach before, but I've never taken an actual vacation somewhere where I could just sit by the sea and watch the sun set after a relaxing and lovely day. I would love to just watch the sun sink past the horizon over the water. I chose these photos because I find them both breathtaking and beautiful, and the colors are so vibrant and eye-catching.
Being a mother is also something on my bucket list. I am a very family-oriented kind of person and I love kids. I think it would be wonderful to be a mom one day and to start a family of my own. I chose these photos because I found them both just be so natural and pure. I think I first one is unique, and the second one captured such a perfect moment.
A quirky idea that I have always had on my bucket list was to start a Goodness Jar at the start of a new year. A Goodness Jar is whenever something good happens to you, you write it down and stick it in the jar. That way, by the end of the year, you can go through the jar and read what you wrote and remember all the good things that happened to you throughout the whole year. It would give you a reason to reflect back and smile! I chose these photos because I like the editing done to the first one, and I love the lighting behind the jar in the second one; it looks wishful and magical.
Another thing that I have always wanted to do was be in a band one day. I love to play guitar and sing, and I can see myself being part of a band in college and just playing for fun at local bars and such. Being able to write songs and share them with people seems like such an enthralling idea, and also because music is so personal to me. I chose these pictures because I like the simplicity of the black and white, and I also like the angle that all three photographs were taken at.
I love to write. It is a passion of mine, and its what I want to go to college for. So I shall wrap up my bucket list with the plan to go to college and come out and into the world as a successful writer, regardless of what branch of writing I decide to go into There are a wide variety of things to do in the field of writing, so I will hone in on one thing while I'm in college. I chose these two photos because they both display a brand new page, and a fresh start.
