Many of the students that had the project of making their bucket list and completing obviously new that they had many items on their lists that would be hard to achieve but they chose to do what they could do and didn't let opportunities just go to waste. What they did had meaning to them no matter how small that item seemed to other people. And while looking at their list and accomplishing things they realized some new things about themselves and grew from it. Although it sounds very cliche each of them grew differently and realized different things some realized they needed to change their way of doing things, others learned to be more independent when trying to accomplish their goals, others just decided to accomplish things but at a steady pace and not just rush through it all and enjoy life.
In this project I would like to see what kinds pf experience each of the items would leave me with and how it would be able to make me have a realization about life or change me. Since haven't done much id like to see how each one impacts me, it makes me wonder. To get the most out of this project I would need to actually try and accomplish these things, some that can be accomplished easily, and attempt to try at least on of the harder ones.
Valentine's Day is a special day for many girls all over the world, even if it was a made up holiday for the profit of companies. But this year it was different, I actually had someone to look forward to see that day :). And being the cheesy person I am I made chocolate truffles for my friends and my certain other. Although things didn't really go as planned and ended up not having enough chocolate to cover the truffles so they ended up all nasty looking. But my friends still liked it and thankfully "he" did too :).
It was a nice day, although many people see Valentine's as a waste and how they don't believe in it and its "why only love the person more on that day? why not some other day or everyday?" simple. It's a matter of perspective. For me it's a day for us people who cant gather enough courage and use it for a chance to tell that person those feelings we hold back. So I cant half cross "Make chocolate from scratch and give it to someone for Valentine's Day" until the day I don't use semisweet chocolate chips to make them and actually make it from scratch.

So, keeping a diary and reading it later is one of the things on my list. Sadly I haven't been able to remember to write in it. But reading it is still quite interesting and funny in its own way. Reading all of my tantrums about my "miserable life" its quite funny actually, then noticing how in 7th grade there are magically more happier memories written. February 13, 2011 ...i remember reading my diary a few times but this entry really got to me a while back, cant remember when but it did. " P.S to my older self... have confidence." it was really weird because I forgot about that, so my past self somehow ended up encouraging me back then. Then a more recent one, Negative's About ME June 2012 with a whole section of me just finding my flaws... its funny how anyone reading this post would be "this is too personal you shouldn't be sharing this!" but its the truth, this little book of mine that records all of my memories from day to day to months of not writing but still remembering it. Then after reading the diary of Anne Frank i decided to try my hardest to actually write everyday, but that eventually faded out.
Why is keeping a diary important, for a shorter version for you people? it lets me remember my life, for someone who forgets quite frequently its pretty useful. It makes me remember to not forget these memories I took the time to actually write down, no matter how happy or how sad it was. Keeping memories and my emotions is quite important to me because it will always make me remember who I was and who I've become, what I've lost and what I've gained, as well as what has stayed the same :).
