  • My Unfinished Bucket List

    by Nick Rush | Jun 22, 2017
    <p>One thing that everyone has, whether it&rsquo;s written down or not, is a bucket list. I have many, many things I want to accomplish, and some of them can be done while I am still in college; others will probably have to wait several years. Though these 15 are the only ones I can think of right now, I can guarantee my list will be ever-expanding. These are in no particular order; here we go!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ol> <li>Visit all 30 Major League Baseball stadiums. Some can be done while still in college. I have visited four stadiums so far- Reds, Cardinals, White Sox, and Indians.</li> <li>Visit the Northern Lights in Alaska. Fun fact: for one high school assignment, we had to make a PowerPoint where we had an unlimited budget to plan any vacation we wanted to anywhere we wanted. I planned a trip to Alaska to view the Lights, dog sled, zipline, and hike.</li> <li>Go to Barcelona. I&rsquo;ve wanted to go since middle school roughly, and I may be able to cross this one off during college. The fall of my junior year (2018) it is possible for me to study abroad at the University of Barcelona!</li> <li>Visit a beach on the West Coast. I have no idea where I would want to go, but I just want to experience life out there. Though I don&rsquo;t like hot weather, I&rsquo;d still like to go to maybe San Fran or Los Angeles.</li> <li>Go to a drive-in movie. There is drive-in about 15 minutes from campus, but I want to watch it while laying on a mattress and pillows in the bed of my truck. Seems pretty simple, right? Ehhh not so much considering my truck is three hours away back home.</li> <li>Find a popular geocaching location. Geocaching is something I have wanted to do for a while, and every time I download the app and search, I end up not finding anything. This can really be done on any spare days that I have. </li> <li>Go to a concert at Klipsch. I can only remember going to two concerts: Thomas Rhett and Joe Nichols. I like all kinds of music, so it doesn&rsquo;t have to follow suit of a country concert. I would be down for anything ranging from Luke Bryan to Ed Sheeran to Ariana Grande.</li> <li>Grow my knife collection to 100. I&rsquo;ve collected knives for a little while, and they range from a mini one-inch knife to a butterfly knife to a huge sword. I think I&rsquo;m sitting around 40 right now.</li> <li>Vacation on a cruise. Everyone says those things are fun.</li> <li>Attend a music festival. Ones I have in mind would be something like Lollapalooza, Freaky Deaky, or Tomorrowland.</li> <li>Be a special guest at a ball game. Examples: throw the first pitch, shoot half court shots, do a coin toss. </li> <li>Watch the sunset and sunrise on a beach. Have some friends down for the idea as well and go to the beach before the sunset and just hang out all night, maybe build a fire like in the movies, and watch the sunrise.</li> <li>Drive a vehicle of my choice. I say vehicle because I&rsquo;m not sure if I would pick a Lamborghini or some huge jacked up truck that is louder than thunder. </li> <li>Play with a tiger. I don&rsquo;t know why, but it would just be awesome.</li> <li>Go to the mountains. Mountains mean amazing sites, skiing, and cold weather.</li> </ol> <img src="/images/default-source/social-media-and-official-blogs/nickrushe902d0922d02625b9ff6ff0000763cab.jpg?sfvrsn=3b00b262_2" data-displaymode="Original" alt="NickRush" title="NickRush" /><br /> <em>Nick Rush &rsquo;20 is studying Sports Management and plans on minoring in another business area.
