Cambridge Bucket-list

I’ve just arrived back at university for the third and final year of my philosophy degree… which means that there’s now only a limited time to do the everything which I would like to have done but haven’t managed to do, for one reason or another.

It was last Easter term that I first thought about compiling a list of these things  – and just doing the thinking helped me complete a few (corridor cricket, a Jesus college wine escapade, swimming in the Cam etc.)

This is a list to help me fill the remaining gaps. It’s by no means prescriptive, but it does come with the hope of making the next year a little more fun! (Cambridge people, this is also an invitation – let me know if you’d like to accompany me for any of these)

  1. Get to the coast during term
  2. Stand on the roof of King’s Chapel
  3. Sleep under the stars in Newnham Gardens
  4. Go to an Open Mic night and perform
  5. Volunteer with Thirsty
  6. Hand in an essay two days early
  7. Visit every college for an event at least once (to go: Churchill, Clare Hall, Darwin, Caius, Hughes Hall, Lucy Cav, Magdalene, Queens, St Edmunds, Tit Hall, Wolfson)
  8. Sit in a lecture for another subject
  9. Go to a lecture in pyjamas
  10. See Page chair at the Cambridge Union
