So, guys, do you ever think of doing something ridiculous?
That is how everything starts. One day you are 16 and you sit with your friends, talking about doing some crazy stuff (eating stolen ice cream on someones birthday laying in a pool completely drunk – actually never did it, but, damn, I was so close to that. ), and next thing you know, 5 years passed, I’m celebrating my 21st birthday next month and still just day dreaming about crazy stuff.
Well, that makes you think… What if the 2012 is really the Armageddon year and I spent my life doing nothing cool? Okay, 2012 is a lame excuse, but, hell, I am not going to do those things if I get a job or get married, or lava burns me into a perfect figure of agony, scream and death. So, I will dedicate the following year to my newest invention (okay, not mine, everyone has it) – the Crazy to-do list.
Crazy to-do list looks like every other regular list, but, instead of picking up dry cleaning and buying groceries, you write all the crazy stuff you wanted to do before you settle the ship and drop the anchor. Oh, crap, that’s the bucket list. Never mind. I’m still calling it Crazy to-do list, because bucket list’s expiration date is your death, and this list has… For the record, in my mind it seemed perfect.
Anyway, I made a list of my own crazy stuff, and guess what? I need to set the date when the list has to be done and all the thing on it checked. Difficult, but it can be done. So (Oh, God, help me, I am so scared of all these stuff on this list!), the date has to be my 22nd birthday. Sometimes I’m so harsh on myself. You know what, jut think about it: I was always the geek in school, the voice of reason, the moral person of the group. I never got stopped by police. Nothing! That is why I need this list. I need to show myself that I am capable of doing this. It will help me settle when I start my career and all those dead stuff ( I am still so young, that’s why I refer to marriage as the death). Otherwise, that list will be one of the biggest “what if” in my life.
Okay, so, the first thing on my list is Call of Duty. II played just the first part, and I never had a chance to play sequels, because, I had a lame computer at home, and now, with this one, I can’t even play Sims2. What I know is that, this game is the best FPS I ever played and I just need to do it. End justifies the means. (What made me say that?)
Next thing I definitely need to do is playing paint ball and laser tag. Those thins are so fun and they kind of look like a real time FPS. No, those are 3D FPS games! How cool is that? The problem is, while I know where to go and play paint ball, there is no laser tag in my country and I can do that only (!) abroad. Swaziland, here I come! (Just joking, I want to go to Finland, or England, Germany looks nice and of course – France)
Skydiving and bungee – Oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god, oh-did I mentioned I have acrophobia? That is irrational fear of height. Oh god, oh god,oh god,oh god,oh god,oh god,oh god,oh god,oh god,oh god,oh god,oh god,oh god…
Running a marathon. Tomorrow is the famous Belgrade marathon. I’m not ready for it this year, but next year… I think I won’t be ready even for that one, but at least I have to try. There is always a half marathon… It’s 21 kilometers (13 miles for Americans). I never did sports. I am not very good at it. I can’t hold a basket ball, I can’t play tennis, I don’t skate… This one will be the biggest challenge (except for, oh god, oh god, skydiving and bungee).
Have a hedgehog or a squirrel for a pet – there is one hedgehog that just keeps coming to my house. Poor thing just keeps attacking my dogs. Seriously, those dogs never saw a hedgehog in their lives, so they think it’s some sort of a bloodthirsty animal that is threating to the world and needs to be destroyed. I think they are cute and the best thing is that they make that funny noise when they feel threatened. You know, like someone blowing air through his nose. Sweet. Squirrels… Well, they are just cute, and full of energy, and cute, and they forget stuff, and cute… You get the picture. Oh, while I’m here, I can check on my list that I got hit by a hedgehog that my dog threw on me. It can be scary, you know?
Have a copy of the “Roman law” in my house. Seriously, you have to be f-ing insane to by it just like that.
Make a Twitter account for my parents. Nah, never gonna do that…
Know what? We don’t know what the next year will bring us (I vote for Yellowstone), but, readers, we never know what we can or can’t do, if we don’t try it. That’s the point of life.Take a risk, once in a while, better when you are younger. Men, save a damsel in distress. Women, kill that white horse of that prince charming and put its head into the kings bed. Anything, just start living the life how you were supposed. Sure, we can all watch the TV, but, one day, when you have grandchildren, what stories will you tell them? Will that story be “when I was your age, I spent all my time in front of the computer and TV”, or will it be “Once, while I was skydiving, a ninja appeared out of nowhere…?”
