Let’s start with the best part of the summer. Now as I have stated before, I admittedly have a huge fear of the open water. I will swim in the ocean as long as I can feel the sand beneath my toes, visibility is clear for miles, and there are minimal waves, preferably none. The cause of this fear you might ask? Ahhhh the joys of being a teenager, and the not-so-wise choices we make. It started an early morning 10+ years ago. As we arrived at school, there was a scheduling issue with classes on that day. Instead of waiting for the issue to be cleared up, we skipped school and went to the beach. It was those one-of-a-kind days, where the usually quiet and calm sea turned into a raging monster, with abnormally high waves. Which of course, we decided to take on. Long story short, I came an inch away from drowning, and ended up in the ER with a concussion. And as it turned out in the following years, a fear of waves and open waters.
Now I proudly present to you numbers 32+33 off the Bucket list!
32. Go scuba diving
33. Go snorkeling in a shipwreck
It was pretty awesome, quiet, calm and unless you look up, you do not even notice how rough the waves are above your head.
Before taking down number 126, I went to a local baseball game, which surprisingly, I enjoyed a lot. Something that will definitely happen much more now.
126. Watch a major league baseball game
