Ten completely random things that I want to do in my life.

Hallo meine Lieben,

I thought it would be a good idea to find a theme for this week's Ten On Tuesday post. I have thought I lot about things  that I would like to do at least once in my life and I think it is a good idea to write them down to get motivated.  

Take a ride in a hot air balloon.



I "stole" this dream from my Mom. She always wanted to do it and talked about it a lot. My Dad and I planned to surprise her with a hot air balloon ride for her next birthday but unfortunately it did not happen. And because my Mom was never able to do it, it is very important for me to make it happen. For myself and my Mom. 

Learn how to play piano.

Well, there are a couple of instruments that I would love to be able to play but it would be extremely cool to have a fancy piano in my house and be able to play it.  I should really start and take some lessons. The thing is that I don't think that I am very talented when it comes to playing an instrument. I can play a bit of saxophone and I took bass guitar lessons but I would not play in front of an audience. Too embarrassing. David is so talented and he can play so many instruments...we talked about taking piano lessons together and I am sure that I would be in the beginner's class forever and he would be a professional after two weeks. 



Build my own furniture.

I don't know why but I love to work with wood and heavy machines. I already built a book shelf years ago but I have so many other ideas. I just need the time and space and material to start. 

Learn more languages.

I would love to speak more languages. It would be awesome to understand every language on this planet but I guess that is not possible. Obviously I can speak German and my English is okay. I can also speak some French and a tiny bit of Italian. Oh, and don't forget about Latin, the most important language nowadays. But I need to work on my French skills and it would be great to know some Icelandic, Swedish, Spanish, Russian and so on. 

Travel to the places I love.

There are so many places that I would love to see. I would pretty much love to travel anywhere but there are some places that are definitely on top of my list. Places like Ireland, Iceland, Christmas Island, Sweden, Latvia, India, New Zealand, San Francisco...



Learn how to sew. 

I am still fighting with my first knitting project but I would also love to be able to sew my own clothes. I just need to get started. 

Give animals in need a home.

I would love to live at a place where I have enough room and time and money to give more animals in need a new home. And I am not just talking about cats and dogs and bunnies. I would love to offer my home to cows and sheep  and chicken and donkeys...Being with animals makes me so happy. 

Know everything. 

I am currently reading "The book of general knowledge" and I know it is not possible to know everything but I would love to know as much as I can. Like Vincent from Bones. He knows so many things and I am always impressed. And yes, I know it is just a character in a TV show. 

Write a crime novel.

I love to read them and it would be even more awesome to write my own. I always try to come up with an idea but I always think that people would figure it out too fast. Maybe someday. 



Stop animal cruelty.

That's a tough one. I always feel so terrible when I say all the cruelty in this world. I feel helpless, angry and sad. It breaks my heart. I really wish I could end all the terrible things that are going on, stop all the horrible people who treat animals in a bad way....

Be happy.

This world can be a scary place. There are so many unknown things. Plus life can be short. So we should always try to make the most out of it. Sometimes that's hard. Sometimes we fail. But I want to  try to live the life that I imagine in my dreams.




What are you dreaming of? What are the things you always wanted to do, to try, to experience?





Have a fabulous week!

  1. I would love to be able to play the piano and travel to all the places I love! Sewing is up on my bucket list and I plan on attempting that one very soon!

    1. Good luck with all your goals, Chrissy! I know that you will sew some awesome things! Hugs!

  2. Das sind ein paar schöne Dinge, die du gerne einmal tun würdest. Für eine Fahrt mit dem Heißluftballon habe ich leider zuviel Höhenangst (was bei einem Flugzeug so ganz und gar nicht der Fall ist), sonst würde ich das auch gerne mal machen.

    LG

  3. I have flying in a hot air balloon on my 25 in 25 list!
    I would also love to learn more languages. Or at least become more proficient in the languages I have learned. If only I could find a random stranger to practice my Russian with!
    My grandmother (who is German) was singing a German nursery rhyme to my niece and I've decided that, if nothing else, I'm going to learn that nursery rhyme to sing to my niece.

    1. I hope you can fly in a hot air balloon too!
      And I think it is awesome that you know some Russian! And that your grandmother is German! I would love to know which rhyme she sings!

  4. I'm with you on the learning to play piano and how to sew... I can do VERY basic with both, but I'd love to be really good at both. Is the 'book of general knowledge' good?

    1. Yeah, I like the book! It's the German edition though but I got an English one too but haven't read it yet!
      It is great that you already have some basic skills!

  5. Aw, I love your list! My younger cousin plays the piano, and I am kind of jealous, everytime, I hear her play!
    I would love to travel to all the places I want, like Toronto, Boston/New England and so on, finally I managed to stay in Ireland, and you should visit this country, it's awesome! :-)
    I would love to speak more languages as well, I learned French and Spanish at school, besides English, but I barely speak those languages. I can't tell someone, that I did my Abitur in French, right?! :-D
    Being happy is as desirable as finding your true love (but you actually found yours! :-))
    Have a lovely week, Katrin!

    1. Yeah, a friend of mine plays piano too and I always get jealous at her!
      It is so cool that you will stay in Ireland! I would love to visit so badly!
      I learned French at school too but I barely speak it, it is a shame!
      I am sure you will find true love soon too, sweetie!

  6. It's so wonderful that you want to live your mom's dream :) I'm sure the hot air balloon ride will be fabulous!
    I can't really play an instrument and I think I'd be the same as you - I'd be in the beginner's class forever ;)
    Oh if only I could learn Spanish fast! :D
    I wanna be able to sew, too, and being happy is the one thing I try working on every day also.
    Building your own furniture is a great idea. And I want to travel much more, too.
    And live in another place than Germany for a while, that's something I always wanted to do. We'll see if that works out and where it's going to be :)
    Have a wonderful week, sweet Katrin.
    Ich drücke Dich ganz fest.

  11. I'm just not very musical which makes it hard, because one of the things I'd like to be better at is dancing.

    This is a great list! I'd love to be able to sew my own clothes too!

    1. I am not very musical either, it is a shame!

  13. yes!!! to ride a hot air balloon. i want to do it again. my dad took me to ride a hot air balloon when i was a kid but it was tied up so we were not really flying. we were floating.

    i kind of regret it that i didn't learn to play piano when i was younger. and that i didn't take it seriously practicing with my violin.

    i'd love to be multilingual!!!

    p.s : german is so hard

      And yeah, I am sorry that German is such a difficult language to learn!

  14. Now that spring has started, I'll start to see more and more hot air balloons float in the sky above my village. I always stare at them until I can't see them anymore. One day I'll be on one :)

    1. That sounds so beautiful! Love the place you live in and I am sure you can be in one of the balloons soon!

  15. this is almost my list except for the traveling, I'm too much of a homebody plus airport security is always an issue. though I like the idea of a hot air balloon ride, I would be afraid to look down.

    have a sweet day.

    1. glad that we agree on so many things, Lissa! I am sure I would be scared if there would be water under the hot air balloon! :)

      have a wonderful weekend!

  16. Great list! And I'm totally with you on the languages (damn you tricky German language), the travel, and the animals. :)

    And if you want to know everything, you should read "The Know-It-All" by A.J. Jacobs. It's a book about just that and everything else.

    1. thank you! and yeah, german is such a difficult language to learn! i am sure it can be really annoying!
