Bucket List

I love lists. I use them daily. I use lists for the grocery store, at work to keep myself sane, at home to remind myself what I need to do on my days off so I actually get off the couch, when I’m planning a party or some sort of event, and the list goes on and on.

The one list I never attempted to write, is a bucket list. I think the idea of a bucket list always scared me because it means I have to actually do all of those things. But then I decided, what the hell? Why not? I have a pretty long time to finish all these things on my list, so why not give it a shot? I am sure if I wrote a bucket list 10 or 20 or 30 years from now, my wishes and my priorities would be drastically different. But who says you can’t add-to or edit your list once it’s been written? I wrote this as a post back in July 2011, but have been adding things to it ever since. All my additions will be in blue and anything I complete will be crossed off :)

– Write a book (okay, okay, I’m starting off big, but I didn’t say it had to be a long book… )

– Learn to paddleboard (been once, I was horrible)

– Learn to surf (this scares the crap out of me)

  1. Interesting bucket list :-) I have been to 35 countries and I hope the number will keep on growing! Croatia is a must-see, we probably go there again next year. Very soon, we will publish our bucket list for 2012 :-)
