MY BUCKET LIST (My list in a bucket)

Bucket list

Where have I been all this time, considering that I have not really thought about making a bucket list?

Well, I have been inspired by so much to start creating one. Perhaps to mention, my friends: Kimon, Paul, Florian and Thomas, who are also my German teachers are doing a lot more to inspire me, if not to influence me.

We have been talking about travel for the last few weeks and great places and a lot of possibilities when it comes to exploring as young people. Who does not really want to play a little at their early 20’s?  I want to. Maybe a little bit of fun can do.

Our conversations are shifting to many things at once and, I have been doing a lot of thinking. I guess I am up for a challenge and I have a few in mind.

First things first, I love travelling, learning, exploring and being adventurous. A little bit of elevation really makes me feel good.

Here is  my initial first bucket list:

And oh! just for clarity purposes, a bucket list, that is according to google, is a number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime.

  1. Probably and most probably, the first achievement I would like to accomplish and  to put into my bucket list is to graduate as a Doctoral student one day. PhD
  2. Travel has got to make it in my list. I would like to travel to the the following cities: Tokyo, Lagos, Beijing, Toronto, Harare, New York, London, Berlin, Amsterdam and  Paris; at least in a few coming years of my life. travel
  3. My mind is aligned to writing. I do not only want to write. I want to be a great writer. And, it takes patience, passion and hard work to nurture this craft. I do a lot of writing  in my mind but that has to change because I would like to write a book one day and this I add to my bucket list. books
  4. I am already living my life but I want to live it to the fullest because life is worth living. But how would I achieve this? I roger doing all the thinks I love like skating, hahaha, teaching subjects I love like English and Mathematics, serving my community through giving back and making a good impact in so many people’s lives; writing until my ink runs out and being the best I can be! life
  5. The list is endless. I think its important not to spoil it and not to break my bucket.

Next think you know, I will be making my “anti-bucket” list inspired by a friend of mine by the name of Tin on My Scribbled Journey. Many thanks for such funny thoughts and great blogging ideas. 🙂

MOTHERLY LOVE

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “We Can Be Taught!.”

What makes a teacher great?

Teachers yell and do get angry. Like parents, they really do. That really should not be a problem and if they do get angry and if they know how to alert us on when the red light is coming… before it is too late…then I do appreciate that. A great teacher is one with motherly love. She/He would be angry because you are heading the wrong direction but calls you into order and approaches you never the less like a mom. That is what makes a teacher great for me. Showing motherly love would mean giving advises, assisting you were possible and doing their best to see you on track.

So, a great teacher has got your back but does not tolerate nonsense.

TOO BIG TO FAIL

The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Too Big To Fail.”

Tell us about something you would attempt if you were guaranteed not to fail (and tell us why you haven’t tried it yet).

A colleague here at my new university suggested I should be studying Film and Television after showing an interest in knowing more about it. I have once considered that but after an experience of studying one challenging but fun subject during my undergraduate level….the consideration melted and disappeared in thin vacuum air. Film and Television is way interesting for someone who is interested in pressing now and then, fascinated by great looking technology that enable the magic behind this field. Not only is it fun, its a huge challenge. I love to challenge myself but no, this time I would only do knowing that I am guaranteed a pass. Failure, I believe is a guideline to improvement and discovering your weaknesses. Failure is not necessarily wrong. But who wants to fail? I do do not want to fail. I am sure you too do not want to fail. Its amazing how we do not want to but it happens at times. We less anticipate it.

My story is different. I have had a great opportunity to study media studies which focuses on film and television theories and a lot more on this subject. I have also had a privilege of compiling a portfolio of research done on it as well as exploring theories by viewing films. It was great but certainly not my best. Not only have I studied this course, I have also passed it. Now that is epic.

A part of me loves film and television study but I would not go a mile to literally study it. If only I was guaranteed to pass, I would take the risk. I am scared of failure.

CUT OFF: NOT IN MY VOCABULARY

The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Cut Off.”

lonely

It is often seldom that I feel lonely. Actually, lonely is a word I hardly use. Do I even see myself lonely at times? No. Do I feel that way? Not at all. An occupied mind, I would think really makes time to be with others but complain less about being left alone. I never feel lonely for a lot of reasons. Particularly for the fact that I prioritized a lot and I am conscious of when I need to be around friends and family and also when it is time to chill (be with loved ones).

Lonely…is what I am not familiar with.

LAST WORDS

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Last Words.”

You have the chance to write one last post on your blog before you are stopping forever. Write it.

This prompt brings me to a state of emotions. This is because 1)I can’t imagine any day as my last day to write on my blog and 2)I do not want it to be. Psalms 107:1 says gives thanks to the Lord for his faithful love endures forever. Therefore I give thanks to the Lord for giving me hope and renewing my faith, for guiding me and giving the ability when I thought I can not. If this would be my initial last post I would also like to show gratitude to everyone who has played a role in my life, directly and otherwise. Be it family, the congregation of Acts Bible Church Ministries, friends, neighbors, a person I met once, school mates and friends I have made through social media platforms across the globe….this goes to you. Yes you! Life without a thank you is incomplete. To my family: your love, laughter and warth has kept me going. Your presence in my life can not be measured. Words can’t either extend my sincere love and thanks giving. All of you are amazing and because some of you have ever seen or read my blog, when you do…know that I kept you in my thoughts daily. To everyone: as mentioned above, regardless of how we met and how you got to know me….this one goes to you. For your impact in my life, thank you. A close sister of mine would say to me ‘no one is meant to live life alone’. It could be not worthwhile if so. I just really want to say…THANK YOU for the support, for being there, for your prayers, for visiting my blog, for recalling that there is someone by the name of Lebogang who exists and for your love. You have been nothing but kind and being extreme eye openers. Thank you for respecting my views and opinions and mostly for making me develop better ideas when writing. I have been inspired and generally have become a better person at heart because of all of you.  Thank you.

Love Lebogang

FIRST LIGHT

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “First Light.”

Remember when you wrote down the first thought you had this morning? Great. Now write a post about it.

It is normal to think regardless of time slot. Whether at sundown or sun-up. I actually do not write my first thoughts in the morning. Oh well, at least I never really do. It is no ritual to me. I cogitate and therefore, rewrite things in my mind. Like literally do the thinking and recap mentally. I do not know if this makes sense to you but it does to me :).

Writing in the early hours of any day seems really beneficial to any writer and may be if seen in that light. It used to be a way to kick start my days. It is a great way to start a day well when knowing that you are looking forward to overwhelming super hectic days.

I do not put my first thoughts onto black and white. I just cogitate, analyse, and conclude!

NO, THANKS

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “No, Thanks.”

Have I really thought of such a thing? No! Not at all. Well, I could NOT think of such because I am an out door type of person. I love being out doing something and I am sure being away from home often would not be a problem. Calamities or not, I want to explore the world. Be it the deepest corners of the South or North, East or West, cold or extremely hot, I look forward to adventures.

It may be a country of war zones, killing and brutality or even natural disasters, I want to touch down and tell a story from my own subjectivity point of view or an from an ethnographic point view.

There is no country I would say NO to. Countries are different of course, from time to time including their current circumstances, BUT, I need not be bias from ‘hear say’. I want to travel the world broadly.
