the List

Ah, yes, the illustrious and much obsessed-over Bucket List. Naturally, each item was chosen carefully – but how? Out of everything the world has to offer, why do I want to eat in Italy or attend a red carpet premiere? Ultimately, it boils down to who I am as a human being, what I want from life and who I want to be. I’m working toward becoming an actress, hopefully one of the best, so it’s only natural that my other life aspirations be as lofty and ridiculous. I chose items that would force me to move forward, anything that keeps me dreaming. My bucket list is so much more than the ‘things I want to do before I die.’ No, it’s the list of ‘things I need to do before I die.’ I wouldn’t be in college right now if graduating wasn’t on this list. I would’ve given up after that terrible February, packed my bags, and run away. Every day here is a battle, one which I don’t often want to fight – but I have to keep going because it’s on my list. It’s like the support structure of my life, a list of things that past Krista knew current Krista would need to do in order to achieve true happiness. Basically, my list is the ultimate love letter from one dreamer to her future and I fully intend on becoming the person I have always wanted to be. So, without further ado, here’s my list. Here is what I need to do in order to become best version of myself possible. Here’s what I need to do to keep living, breathing, and pursuing my dreams with abandon – I’m taking the world.
