My Buried Life Project

Author’s Note
Hello my name is Braxton Anderson (AKA Megamon) I am 18 years old and finishing my last year of high school. The more I think about the idea of the bucket list the more it grows on me. While it may seem harsh or even dark to think about “What do I want to do before I die?” But thinking about this question is real eye opener to a lot of people because it makes think about your “purpose in life” along with Life’s other great questions. What I like about Bucket Lists is that you really can see what people value in their lives, maybe even in your own. Personally, I have quite a few things on my list that have to do with Video games. This is most likely due to all the experiences I have had with them and the influences it has had on me for the course of my life. But making a large bucket list makes you also think about all the other things in your life. For example, our friends, family, Careers, dreams, even our future. Overall I had a fun time making this list and the video.

Now What?

One of the silliest things on my bucket list, breaking into dance for a day. Let me throw some context to this one. Ever since I saw the scene from “500 Days of summer” where the main character wakes up and dances his way to work. I have been thinking “I want to do that” I mean who wouldn’t want to wake up, dance to an upbeat/cheesy song, while high fiving everyone on the way there, with a marching band behind you?  
Now for one of the most exciting things on my list is to compete in an Official League of Legends tournament. I always have loved playing videos games in a completive environment, League of Legends being no exception. For the awhile now I have been wondering how I would break onto the scene even if it would be small. So naturally I flipped when I heard that Winnipeg had a tournament coming up. So I toke a combination of people I knew and some players that wanted to be on a team. Then All Manitoban Product was born or AMP for short. We only had a handful of practices due to how hard it is to get 5 people to sit together for a couple games at the same time. I would like to tell you how we did but I don’t want to spoiler anything if you want to see how we did here’s the link  (Also my name is Megamon1996). Regardless of the results it was a great experience to be surrounded by people who are skilled and love the game as much as I do. And will definitely be attending the Lan Tournament on February 15th.  And at the rate I am going on my list I might have to make a new one in the next couple of years
