"Bucket" didn't quite feel complete for what I wanted to post, so I decided to append something at the end of the term and make a title out of it. I want to disclose every single thing I desire to do before I die, from the magnificent to the silly, and then the bizarre. You know, that which will make no sense to anyone or anything except the mass sitting between my ears. I need to put my thoughts out there so they're more likely to become reality, and sometimes all it takes is the simple act of naming it for a group of strangers who don't know me. But even if I don't do all the these things, I'm still happy to say that I have something to live for and look forward to in life. Anyways, here goes.

  4. View the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Statue of Liberty, the 9/11 Pools of Reflection, and other places of learning in New York (basically, NYC tourism)

Notes on Mackinac Island: It smells like horseshit and chocolate fudge when you land, and it's VERY BIZARRE AND YOU NEVER LOOK AT CHOCOLATE THE SAME WAY EVER AGAIN. But bring at least twenty-five bucks for the fudge. You don't need to get it on the island, just go to Mackinaw City. Oh and DO NOT DO THE $10 lighthouse climb....it's like being in someone's attic and the antithesis to excitement....save the money for fudge or taffy. And you have to stare at stranger's butts or have other strangers stare at your butts. (also sorry for your loss and I'm sorry also if you've actually already been around there and you don't need any of these tidbits)

That's alright, I've already been to Mackinac Island before! But it's been a long time since I went, so it's always helpful to be reminded of things like what you mentioned. I also have no qualms about seeing other stranger's butts or people seeing my own booty, I just expect people to not touch me in a sexually inappropriate manner. Thanks for the condolences, I'd like to think that I can foster a healthy, resilient response to tragedy. I want to believe that nothing will stop me from reaching the kind of life I want to have, no matter how much time or effort it requires. I'm human, and therefore imperfect, but then again perfection is boring and useless anyways.
