My Bucket List

Have you ever watched the movie, The Bucket List?  It's an inspirational movie about two men who are dying and go on a journey to cross off item's on their "bucket lists".  

When I was in high school, my senior English teacher encouraged us all to make our own "bucket list".  I think we had to make a list about 20 long or so, but I really liked the idea and I came up with 100 things I'd like to do someday.  I used to have this list hanging in my bedroom and each time I completed something, I'd cross it off.  Who knows if I'll complete it all before I die...there are some things on there that have changed since I created the list and I no longer want to do.  I'm sure this list will go through many updates though my life, but it's fun to cross items off!  I've done a lot, but I still have much more to do!  Do you have a "bucket list"?

  1. Impressive that you came up with 100. I know we should all be able to easily come up with that many...but when you really think about it, it's hard to do! Kudos to your list! You're on your way to accomplishing them all!

  2. Great list! I've done some of the things on your list too.


  3. I'd say cross sky diving off. I hate heights and why tempt fate? The rest sounds reasonable. I lived in NJ and have been to the Empire State Building but only went up twice. Again I hate heights so I am not all that impressed. I can't wait to see how many more you get to cross off. Which one's have you deleted?


Thanks for reading my blog! Leave me a comment so I can read your thoughts on my thoughts! :)
