#3 and #7

3.  Read Homer.

I’ve always been fascinated with ancient cultures, and I’ve always thought the Greeks just took it to the next level.  I’ve always wished Homer was assigned reading material in any of the many literature classes I’ve taken.  But alas!  He never made it to any.  The web is abundant of free classical literature, and sadly, there aren’t many readers interested.  Or am I wrong in this?  Well, either way, I’m happy to say that I downloaded The Iliad last night and got to reading right away.  The bucket will not be kicked, though, until it is finished and perhaps along with The Odysseysoon I can say I’m proud to have read Homer.  But not yet.

7.  Learn five phrases in five different languages.

Easy enough for a Friday.  Here’s the list of phrases and languages I intend to learn by the end of the day:

You are beautiful.
I love you.
Don’t forget to live.
Be kind.
Thank you.

to be learned in (for no particular reason other than what came first to mind)

Spanish
Italian
French
Portuguese
Russian

Here’s to a fun-filled Friday!  Go kick a bucket today!

This post is in reference to my YOTTO bucket list.
