Bucket List

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:

  1. Visit a tropical island 
  2. Go horseback riding
  3. Get pregnant
  4. Write a book-length amount of publishable poetry
  5. Go ATV’ing
  6. Get a passport 
  7. Go backpacking
  8. Camp in the snow
  9. Learn the ins and outs of my digital camera 
  10. Volunteer
  11. Go stand-up paddle boarding
  12. Start playing my trumpet again
  13. Visit my dad
  14. Take a dance class
  15. Get bikini-ready 
  16. Write a children’s book
  17. Write a book with my good friend
  18. Buy a house
  19. Travel across Europe
  20. 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?

    This is great Amber. I may need to copy this idea and create a public bucket list of my own 🙂
