Before I die I want to______.

“Let me ask you something. Do you think there’s such a thing as a perfect day?”
“What?”
“A perfect day. Start to finish. When nothing terrible or sad or ordinary happens. Do you think it’s possible?”
“I don’t know.”
“Have you ever had one?”
“No.”
“I’ve never had one either, but I’m looking for it.”
 Jennifer Niven, All the bright places

I don’t know whether you are aware of the book called “All the bright places” by Jennifer Niven? But this book has lately gotten me thinking about death and living in the moment. Something that most of us don’t do. I plan on writing a book review soon but for now the book has given me a new idea. You see, it mentions a wall, a wall where people scribble what they want to do/ accomplish before  they die. I don’t know why it really got to me, but to see so many aspirations and hopes together in one place  is very inspiring. So I went to people and here’s what they had to say:
