My Bucket List...

From the time I was little I had five things I just knew I had to do at some point in life.  I didn't realize at the time, but it was the beginning of a Bucket List.  It was short and to the point and I had completed four of the five things by the end of high school.  I completed the last remaining thing when I traveled to Romania at 21.

  1. Be a camp counsellor
  2. Be a cheerleader
  3. Work with kids in Romania (my cousin was adopted from there and I had always wanted to see where she was from, and work with kids in a similar situation to what she had been born into)
  4. Model
  5. Act
As I grew, so did my list.  So, without further ado, here is my current bucket list  (:
    • Cycle across Canada for something I believe in (planned for July-Oct 2011)
    • Find a starfish in the Ocean (Completed in The Bahamas, April 2010)
