Baket List

Most people have their bucket lists. While I have mine, I also have the "Baket List" - this is a list of things that I wasn't able to do as an adult, but could have or should have done. It's not really a list detailing what I regret not having done, but something that I wish I had done before, but it's stil possible to accomplish it.

Let me share with you a few things on my Baket List:

1. Enroll in a dance class.

When I was youngER, I was able to take dance classes during summer.  The dance classes I enrolled in were part of a scholarship that I got and it was something I totally enjoyed. Too bad, I wasn't able to continue because, 1.) I was more focused on voice lessons, and 2.) the scholarship had already ended after three years.

2. Pursue auditioning for Miss Saigon.

This morning, I read the Rachelle Ann Go's Saigon Diaries. It will chronicle her 14-month stint in London as Gigi of Miss Saigon.  I immediately felt a pang of regret when I read about it. Not because I sing better than her or i'm jealous of her, but because I stopped after two tries of getting in.  It's just that, I didn't try hard enough. Maybe after I lose 40 pounds, I'll audition again. Hahahaha!!
3. Learn how to do a might wallop serve in volleyball, and finger toss.

I love volleyball.  I think I make a pretty good libero, though at the height of my volleyball years, the term "libero" was not yet born.  People my age probably know Leila Barros. I just love love love her!!! I am a good tosser too, but I can't finger toss. While I know how to spike, it's not deadly. I never got the chance to improve my spike because I was busy trying to practice my receive while the other players were busy improving their spikes with me at the receiving end. So, there.

4. Revive my flexibility.

When I was young, I told you I was into dancing, so it wasn't so hard to be flexible.  In college, I had some training in sports that required a lot of stretching for flexibility, so I was able to be Barbie-like for a couple of years or so.  When I stopped training, I also stopped stretching, and I started getting fat, really fat. So now, I can't even reach my toes when I stretch. Why, oh why did I stop stretching? Oh well, now I really have to be disciplined and start stretching.
I still have a lot on my list, but these are just a few that I can share for now.
Do you have a Baket List too? Care to share with me?
