Why a Separate Page Just for a Bucket List?
A bucket list is only as good as its place in my list of priorities, which means I’ve unearthed my bucket list (a semi-epic 2012 to-do list) from the bowels of my blog postings and have given it its own page. This means I can access it easily, which means I can, hopefully, check off things from it easily, and it means I can update it, adding and taking away items, as I see fit.
So what follows is my bucket list as it was originally posted on December 4, 2011:
- Visit a tropical island
- Go horseback riding
- Write a book-length amount of publishable poetry
- Go ATV’ing
- Get a passport
- Go backpacking
- Camp in the snow
- Learn the ins and outs of my digital camera
- Go stand-up paddle boarding
- Start playing my trumpet again
Visit my dad
- Take a dance class
- Get bikini-ready
- Write a children’s book
- Write a book with my good friend
- Buy a house
- Travel across Europe
- Reconnect with my spirituality
This is my actual, working bucket list, so it’s going to get a little messy, and you may not really want to know my method of tracking my progress. If you are curious, however, here’s a taste of my Type A personality… I’ve designed a color-coded method of indicating items that have been
accomplished (strike-through); items that I’m currently working on (blue); and items that I have yet to begin working towards (grey).
My bucket list keeps me busy, motivated, and fulfilled! What’s on your bucket list?
