This post has nothing to do with life in Kuwait. i just haven’t posted in a while, and felt like posting something. Feel free not to read if you don’t want to, just felt like sharing.

When I was in college, I made a “bucket list” of sorts–mostly just a bunch of pins on pinterest of stuff that seemed fun. But I was talking to my best friend yesterday about all the stuff we want to do, a lot of it together, and I decided to make a list of the stuff I want to do before I die.
