Before I Die

On a side street just off North Main Street in Cork there is a hidden gem, the 'Before I die' wall. I got inspired and I decided to share with ye 5 things that I want to do before I die. 

Be genuinely happy
This is what I wrote on the 'Before I Die' wall. I want to wake up with a smile on my face and have no particular reason to be smiling. I want to be able to be cry laughing at things that aren't even that funny. I just want to be genuinely happy. That is my ultimate goal in life, so of course it's on my bucket list.  

Make memories
Although I have already made some great memories I want to make more. Especially with my group of friends that I know are going to be my friends forever. I want to be able to look back on all the great times we had together and all the great memories. 

Travel the world 
This is probably on everyone's bucket list! There are so many places that I want to see and explore. Even though I am a bit of a home bird I would still love to go on adventures around the world, take in breathtaking views and experience different cultures around the world. 

Work at a job that I love
I really don't want to work anywhere that I wouldn't enjoy working there, if that makes sense. I want to be able to get up in the morning and look forward to my working day, in a workspace that I feel comfortable in and with colleagues that I enjoy being around. I still don't know what I want to do when I'm older so I guess I'll have to figure that out first.

Decorate my own house
I obviously need to buy my own house first, which is also something I want to do before I die. I always dream of decorating my own house, spending hours scrolling through Pinterest and look at all the amazing houses that exist already. I can't wait to be able to call a space my own and fill up the fridge with whatever I want!

What's on your bucket list?
