As I have been spending my last couple years at CNU, I have been developing my bucket list. …Now I don’t mean to say I’m going to die anytime soon. I actually think I’ll live forever, based on what I have experienced so far, I have little to suggest otherwise. But I digress…
The purpose of this bucket list is to be able to check off things I definitely want to do before I leave CNU. I can’t think of a student here that does not have a CNU bucket list. Some people want to lead a church small group before their graduations, others want to be able to say that they did some love-making with someone in every residence hall on campus, still others want to be able to say that they knew President Trible personally by the end of their senior year.
(By the way: Paul, if you are reading this- let’s do a poker night again real soon.)
By the time I am done with school at CNU I want to be able to say that I:
- Had a splash-fight in the CNU fountain next to the Luter School of Business
- Beat my girlfriend (at least one time) in a legitimate game of tennis
- Had a recognizable name on campus due to my writing
- Represented the CNU Student Honor Council well through-out my tenure in the organization
- Made a legitimate and delicious dinner in my apartment
- Ended poverty.
Other optional goals include, but are not limited to:
– Getting married and then accepted into Catholic seminary school.
– Representing CNU in the Ultimate Frisbee World Championship.
– Actually losing at UNO.
– Creating a teleportation device so that I can visit my family in Maine on a daily basis.
Just like in life, there simply is not enough time to do everything that you want to do while at CNU. I’d love to be the president of three organizations, but unlike in high school, if you want your organizations to succeed, you really can’t head more than one. This lack of time and realistic restrictions on what you are able to do in your time at CNU can seem constricting. However, the triumph of success and the meeting of goals at CNU can be the greatest feelings of your life.
