Bucket List

I know that I said my bucket list would get a post all its own, but I felt compelled to share this first.

I am awesome.

Remarkably, the berries I was carrying (and on top of which I landed) fared a lot better than I did.  Still trying to figure that one out.

Okay.  The bucket list.  In no particular order, and I’m sure I’ll be adding to this as time goes by!

  • Dive the Great Barrier Reef, Eilat, and every Caribbean island
  • Visit Asia
  • Write and publish a novel
  • Go skydiving
  • Go bungee jumping
  • Learn to ski
  • Be fluent in another language
  • Live somewhere warm and dry
  • Be in a relationship with someone who loves me for me
  • Have a job that I love
  • Figure out what that would even mean to me
  • Be my own boss
  • See Wicked
  • Complete a race
  • Get a pilots’ license
  • Master at least one thing — doesn’t matter what — at which I feel completely capable
  • Take a photography class
  • Shakespeare in the Park
  • Have my blogger meet-up!
  • Learn to love myself.

And, to add visual appeal / help remind me that it is not impossible to check things off a bucket list, here are some things that I once wanted to do, for whatever reason, but thought I probably never would.  (I don’t really resemble the yellow smiley face.  In case you were wondering.  ;))

  • Visit Puerto Rico
  • Go to Israel
  • Go to spring training
  • Earn a degree
  • Go scuba diving
  • Go parasailing
  • Go horseback riding
  • Go to Times Square on New Years Eve
  • Be a journalist
  • Hit a 90 MPH fastball (yeah, I don’t know what I was thinking ;))
  • Attend a Yankees / Red Sox game
  • Publish a book
  • Jetski
  • Give a speech in front of hundreds of people
  • Get accepted to graduate school

I think that’ll do for now!  Anyone who wants to help me tick things off that list, have at it.  😉  What’s on your bucket list?

Happy Friday.

    great ideas for the bucket list! hmmm for me, it might be- jetski, get a motorcycle, get a beach house, and go to austrailia, hawaii, backpack across europe….and go back to japan. =D

  2. Ack! I have some Scooby Doo band-aids I can give you to put on your cuts… and you could always make jam from the berries 😉

    I have to say… you’ve kind of inspired me to want to make a bucket list of my own. I especially love that you’ve accomplished so much already. I’d have to give my list some thought, but I’d love to visit Australia, write a book, fall in love, live outside the city, get a few horses, and learn to fly a plane.

    Better get on some of those things…

  3. great list! on my list…hmmm, go to India, get my personal trainer certificate, raise a great kid, blog less LOL

  4. Awesome list. I’d like to own a bakery, rock climb, and go whale spotting!

  5. let’s combine wicked and blogger meetup and cross off some items on both of our bucket lists 😉

    i am such a klutz, i fall all the time too. i wonder if it’s like a genetic thing?? or just…you know…because i’m an idiot.

    also on my list – own my own business, publish a cookbook, skinnydip, go to Mauritius

  6. I love your list! You have a lot of adventures in your future. I want to travel anywhere and everywhere.

    I love that last one–learn to love myself!
    You have done some pretty cool things–I really want to go parasailing!

    Oh no! Now we have matching knees 😦 Hope you’re not too shaken up after that.

    I have a huge bucket list but a sample would be the following:
    1.) Run a 50K race (we can all dream!)
    2.) Run a sub-3:30 marathon (preferably at the Newcastle Town Moor marathon…more dreaming again here)
    3.) Run a sub 40-minute 10K
    4.) Run a sub-20 minute 5K

    Right, non-running related ones 😉
    1.) Ski on real snow
    2.) Paraglide/hanglide
    3.) Visit NYC
    4.) Live in Florida
    5.) Own a German Shepherd dog
    6.) Make a living out of my art
    7.) Become a qualified Body Pump coach (even if I don’t end up teaching it lol)
    8.) Start eating to live and not living to eat

    Makes me wonder what I’m waiting for really!


  11. Do you want to see Wicked in September? It can be another way to celebrate our birthday

  12. What kind of race do you want to do?

    Oh gosh. I see I am not alone in my klutziness!

  13. I’d love to visit Asia as well 🙂 I want to travel the world, go back packing. Live in a different culture.. See what life is like for the rest of the world!
