My exams are over and I’m left with one and a half months of
doing nothingness valuable time to spend wisely before college starts. But since I don’t exactly have any wise thing to do to spend my time wisely, my friend Aaheli and I have made a Bucket List. Why? ‘Cause we’re all going to scatter all over India or evn the world in a couple of months and then we wont be able to meet regularly and that will just suck. So, to spend as much time together as possible, we came up with this brilliant idea. Also, it seemed like a wise fun thing to do. So anyway, I’ll stop yapping not waste your time anymore by my cockamamie babble talks and launch into our Oh-So-Brilliant list of things to do.
#1 Get a job.
Let me tell you something, in India, the chances of getting abducted by aliens in bikinis is higher than the chances of somebody actually employing high school pass-outs. Even for a part time job. Why? Don’t ask me. Maybe because they think all teenagers are drug addicts or alcoholics. Or irresponsible. Or something. I don’t know. But, whatever the reason is, it sucks. Therefore, we will probably not be able to check this off the list. But oh, well…
#2 Learn how to drive.
Aaheli is already 18 and I will be 18 in June, so, Hello driver’s license!!
Well, as soon as I learn how to drive a car without causing mass genocide.
Or maybe I should just stick to the Flinstone’s kinda car… Yes!
#3 Roam around Park Street, Camac Street and Elgin Road on foot, and window shop!
Why? Because it’s fun. Also, it will burn some calories off. Which can only be AWESOME.
#4 Visit the Victoria Memorial.
Because even after living in Kolkata for so many years, we have never seen what’s inside the Victoria Memorial. Shameful, I know.
#5 Go to Nicco Park.
To all my non-Indian and non-Kolkatan peeps, Nicco Park is an amusement park! I’ve been there a million times but Aaheli has never been there, so we have to go there before we leave this city!
#6 Movie marathon. (sitcoms allowed!)
Because there’s nothing better than watching TV all day long! Atleast for one day.
#7 Shit craft on bags.
No, not really crap on bags. That’s just disgusting. What we have actually planned to do is, design a bag. Well, just decorate it actually. We bought plain solid colored bags and we plan to paint it and glue stuff on it to make it look pretty and then sell it on the net! You know, get in touch with our crafty side, ’cause we’re both good at artsy and crafty things..
#8 Get a library card.
Simply ’cause we don’t have one already.
#9 Go to the zoo!
Because we have not been there for so long! I’ll just have to be a little careful and make sure that the zoo people don’t shove Aaheli in one of the cages, thinking that she’s an ape or something… Lol!
#10 Go to the National Library.
Because even though we live in the city that houses the national library, we have not been there. So we absolutely HAVE to, before we leave the city. ‘Cause we are self conffessed book worms. Well, Aaheli, totally but me, sort of.
#11 Go to a night club
Because, in India, teens are just not allowed to go out after it gets dark. Atleast not the girls. But since Kolkata has some awesome discs, we just have to go there, don’t we? 😀
#12 Paint Aaheli’s room.
Because she is SO in love with Anime chacters, we will paint them on her walls!
#13 Write a story together on Wattpad!
Because we are both interested in writing! And also because she is an AWESOME writer! In fact, you should check out her blog! It’s called Thoughts Of A Venus.
#14 I’ll get a tattoo and break Aaheli’s hand.
Because she wont be getting a tattoo, and I will be, and she will be watching and laughing several body parts off while I will probably be screaming in agony. So it’s just fair to make her scream in agony as well…
#15 Take a video and make ScrapBook of us completing our Bucket List.
Because we couldn’t leave our list at fourteen and needed a 15th task. Also, because we should have some record of this entire thing.
And, that’s it. Lets just hope we get around to completing at least 10 of the tasks.
Oh, and notice how “lose weight” and “get a boyfriend” is not a part of our list. We tried to keep the list as realistic as possible.
