It was halfway through my final paper for my management course that I realized one glaring sentence in particular looked suspicious out of context.
So I did what any grad student does when presented with red flags... bothered another student to see if they too were experiencing an odd sentence or two.
"I'm referencing 'Matilda' in my final paper," I immediately messaged to fellow classmate Emma. "It just felt right but anyone who just reads the first paragraph is gonna get real confused."
The more I thought about it, the more I realized that my past academic assignments are a treasure trove for out of context confusion. And since I'm not selfish (usually), I'd like to share my bizarre findings with you all, sans explanation. Have fun unpacking all this!
The average American woman lives to be about 82, if you believe what Wikipedia tells you. Although, sometimes I think my current candy corn consumption rate will shorten my lifespan significantly. (Don't tell me your opinions on mellow creme pumpkins or chocolate candy corn. I don't wanna hear any of it.)
What do I wanna do with however much time I've got left? Ideally, travel. The problem with that is my travel bucket list keeps getting longer, not shorter, the more places I visit. I bet I could take a year off of life to just travel, and I'd come back with even more places to visit.
I'm annoying, I know.
But something's gotta give, right? In the name of being practical, I've actually tried to narrow it down to my top 10 places on a seemingly endless list. It wasn't easy. If any of you saw my bucket list destinations notepad, you'd roll your eyes out of frustration. And I wouldn't even blame you.
So here it is. 10 places I'm actively aiming for at some point. Stay tuned for the inevitable edit where I'm all, "No wait: I also forgot (insert 20 destinations here)."
