I was sitting in the lobby of my dentist’s office waiting for my appointment to begin. A few people were flipping through magazines and chatting. One lady looks over and notices my employee badge and asks me where I work. I tell her I am librarian in a middle school nearby (this was last year). She smiled in surprise (and a little condescendingly) and said, “I didn’t know we had librarians in our schools any more . . . with the internet and all.”
This DS106 Assignment just made me happy. Bucket lists make me want things . . . to dream. It’s like a present I plan to give to myself in the future so it makes me feel a sense of expectancy. Of course my bucket list is a lot longer and narrowing it to four was a challenge. It really forced me to think, what do I really want to do before I die? I just had this conversation with a friend not a week ago. Something exciting was happening in her town and it was on my bucket list! I’m going to go for it!
