Author's Note
I believe everyone agrees with me when I say, life should be lived to the absolute fullest. I want to go out and travel for months on end and just forget about reality for a little bit. I want to see the world different ways. I want to see the world through other people's perspectives. I just want to see the world. Yes, I created this bucket list for an English project, but I'm going to continue crossing off and adding things to my list way down the road. This project has opened my eyes and made me realize that I can go out and achieve anything I want to with the right mindset and a thought out plan. I come from a family who loves to travel, just not anywhere outside of North America, sadly. But this spring break I'm actually going somewhere tropical, the Bahamas! I'm really excited for this trip because it'll be the first time I leave North America. I know the Bahamas is only an hour away from Florida, but even though it's a small start, it's a start.
What Now?
There are many things on my list that I'm eager to cross off, but the one thing I'm aiming for right now is to be able to study at the University of British Columbia. I know it's going to be expensive, but in February I'll be going away for a soccer tournament and there will be scouts from a couple of universities, including one from UBC, coming watching my team play. I'm hoping that my drive, hard work, and desire to be the best on the field and off the field will help with my chances of getting a scholarship. Even just to get a chance to meet and talk with her about scholarships, because that would really give me that extra push to help cross this off my list! Getting a scholarship to play soccer at UBC could also potentially help me with crossing off number 65 on my bucket list, which is win a championship.


  1. Your video was awesome. Many of the things on your bucket list are on mine too, maybe we can accomplish the things together :)

  2. I hope you get that scholarship that would be pretty awesome.

  3. Great video your song was sick, and the layout was pretty new and I enjoyed it. Also the annoying animoto logo wasn't at the end of your video unlike all the other ones !

  4. I thought the video to your music was cool I also like how you want a scholarship, that's pretty radical

  5. I actually liked the song you chose for your video, at first I didn't think I would but after it started playing I did. I thought that your theme made it a little hard to read and see your visuals but than that it was well done

  6. I liked the effect that you used for your video. I also liked that you used a video clip in your project. Your puppy is so cute! Good luck with making it to UBC, it's so beautiful there!

  7. I really liked the points on your list! I ythink the music fit well with the video! Your puppy is so cute by the way! I really want a dog as well! Good job with the university of British Columbia!

  11. I really liked your bucket list, the video of your puppy is adorable!! Good luck getting into UBC!

  12. I really liked your layout of your video and the effect I thought it went nicely with the music and I really enjoyed the video of your puppy

  13. I really liked your video and the things on your list! It would be amazing if you got into UBC, best of luck with the scholarship!

  14. I like the kind of rustic theme you chose. I like how it switched up how everything was represented it kept your attention on all the points you had included.
