the 5 things i want to do before i get old

Spread the love

Growing old is something I totally dread but is utterly inevitable. If I could I’d like to stay in my 30-year old self forever! Anyway, here are 5 of the things I’d want to do just before I get old,  too weak to go anywhere or do anything even.

  • shave my head ~ I planned to do this when i turned 30, but i was really having such a fabulous time being 30 + pregnant that i never got the chance to shave my locks off. Besides I was afraid my baby would think I was his dad! 😀
  • get a tattoo ~ I had  this all sorted out, I will get an “OM” tattoo {I also wrote about this here} + the name of my son on my back. I just don’t know when I’d master enough courage to have my skin pricked!
  • run in one of those fun runs ~ ever since I caught wind about those fun runs for non-athletes, I have actually wanted to try one for myself. It would be one fun + liberating experience to run, plus it will also be a perfect form of exercise, not to mention a totally new type of mum-son bonding activity, too! Hopefully I will get to find one locally, so me + the little man can participate in one, soon!
  • travel around the country ~ it was also my dream to travel the world, but, alas, the lack of financial to do just that might make it quite impossible, so I guess am gonna have to settle with touring around my beloved country first. I’d love to visit Palawan, Bohol, Boracay, Sagada, Vigan + a whole lot of idyllic + beautiful places in the Philippines.
  • learn french ~ I have always been fascinated with the French language + have been dreaming all my life to learn it. But, sadly I never found the time. It was a good thing I came across this wonderful book on speaking French, Lightning Fast French, which I shall be sharing with you in a up-coming post. Hopefully, I will have that goal ticked off from my bucket list real soon! 😉

I am sure you also have loads of things you want to do before you get old. It was actually quite a chore to just choose 5 ’cause I’ve got plenty. I wanted to ride a plane, go on a mountain hike/climb, or diving or bungee jumping! The works! Oh well, maybe you can include some of those in your own posts + join us in this BC Bloggers Meme + while you’re at it, you might as well join us at BC Bloggers as we’ve got loads of exciting activities slated in the coming weeks! 🙂

Okay, time for me to catch some shut-eye before the little man wakes me up again. I do hope you all have a great, albeit gloomy + cloudy, Thursday. A post about my medicine box + the little man’s flu shot is in the works + I hope you come visit them when they’re out!  🙂

  1. Fun runs are exciting! I’m joining a run with my little girl this coming September, I can’t wait! 🙂 I’m not so sure about tattoos. Sometimes I want to have one, other times I’m scared to death!

    1. i’d love to, sana lang the venue are much nearer my place here in bulacan or if not sana not that early….:(

  2. These are pretty much the same things I want to do – except for shave my head. Lol! I also wanted to get a tattoo before but I don’t like the idea of my kids having it so para good example sa kanila no na lang. And of course, traveling! Love the new design of your blog mommy 🙂

  3. I was wondering why you would want to shave off your locks. 🙂 Ooooh if things go right, I might have my first ever fun run next month…

    1. it’s just something i have listed on my bucket list some years ago! i think it will be really liberating + exciting, too! ooh, where are running? lucky you! 😀

    1. thanks! 🙂

      it can be totally liberating, plus i’d like to see how i’d look like without my locks! 😛

  4. I got shocked with the shave your head part. Di ba you have nice long hair? hehe
    Why do you want to do it, just curious?

    1. long but totally not nice, i’ve been having falling hair for the longest time now! i’d love to do it for the fun of it! i also would like to see if i’d be comfortable with my own skin without the locks as a security blanket! 😉

  5. Travel around the world yan ang like ko =) Also having our own house still living with my mother eh 🙁

  6. Hehe shaved your head bright idea! Travel across the country will be a really good suggestion as well if ever that I will do the escapade I will go first at Batanes. The scenery there is really amazing and too “magical” no pollution at all, basing on the videos that i saw and the pictures. Most of us really love to travel in different places. 🙂

    1. travelling is one spiritual-enriching activities, that is probably why it’s no wonder a lot of us wanted to do it, i just wish the lot of us are also financially capable to do it at our whim 🙂

      1. isang malaking check ka dyan! hehe most of us hindi talaga kakayanin ang travel trips medyo mahal. Good thing na merong mga blogs na nag popromote at nagpo2st ng pics in that way we feel that we are there also.

  7. Really, shave your head? Get inked? Wow! I can’t even have my hair cut too short. And the only tattoo I wish to have are the glittered ones and henna. I’m such a baby! Haha.

    1. i tend to be more adventurous at times, i just wish i can tick them off my bucket list very soon. but, just so you know, i haven’t tried cutting my hair real short, either! 🙂

    1. i must agree, i’ve been having a lot of comments about that. it was something i’ve been wanting to do + hopefully i can very soon 😀

  8. again traveling is in the list, I figure while visiting other list travel is always in the list 🙂
