It is here. This “May” that I purposefully never flipped to in my planner for fear of my eyes wandering to that highlighted box – May 25th. May means that a count down is unnecessary; the date you write down on all assignments is a constant reminder of the ticking time clock.
Here is my bucket list:
1. Dunmore Day
2. Ben and Jerry’s Factory
3. Shelburne Farms
4. Climb Camel’s Hump…and Mt. Abe….and Mt. Mansfield (sorry calves)
5. Make a pilgrimage back to old dorms with my roommate (yes, I have had the same roommate every year and am already feeling the separation anxiety)
6. Sunrise from organic garden
7. Enjoy it all (this one is easy)
The funny thing is that Middlebury has felt like one giant check off the bucket list. While here, I have done so many things I never thought I would, things I had never imagined, and things I had no idea to put on my bucket list. However, it has all fallen into place because this four year experience has been so amazing. You literally get smacked in the face with the water pouring out of the buckets you are turning over nearly every day. Is that where the phrase comes from? I should look into that.
Anywho, it is Make It Happen May. Best to-do list ever. You all best hold me to this. Yes, you, reading this.
