I was discussing bucket lists with a friend the other day. If you’re unaware, a ‘bucket list’ is essentially a list of things you want to do before you kick the bucket. You can have anything you want on the list–keep it attainable or go for far-reaching adventures, or a mix of both. The name comes from the movie The Bucket List, though I’ve never seen it myself. I think it’s a fun idea and gives you goals.
I’ve never made a full detailed bucket list, but I’m thinking of doing one now. I was also thinking about the fun things I’ve already done in my life that would have been scratched off my list by now.Those being:
– Spend a day walking around Manhattan
– Go to the top of the Sears (now Willis) Tower
– Visit the French Quarter
– ‘Earn’ beads in New Orleans
– See Niagara Falls
– Visit Memphis
– Publish a book
– Visit Las Vegas
– Get tattooed
– See my favorite band live
– Work in an airport
On days I think my life is boring, I try to remember all the amazing things I’ve done already–so maybe I need to make a ‘filled bucket list’ too, to look at when I’m feeling down. It would be a great reminder for me that life is full of adventure.
My ‘to do’ bucket list would be longer, but here’s a few things I would put on there:
– Visit London and Paris
– Go on an expedition in Africa
– Visit Australia
– Visit Alaska
– See Antarctica
– Go on a cruise
– Learn to speak another language fluently
– Have an international bestseller
Hey, a girl can dream can’t she?
So, what would be on your bucket list? And what’s on your filled bucket list? Tell me in the comments!
