Bucket List

The Bucket List

February 8, 2010

Last week I wrote about a current MTV show The Buried Life. The show follows a group of guys who have set out to cross off all 100 items on their list of things to do before they die. After seeing the show I decided to dig out my old list and see if I had accomplished anything, or if I had anything to add. I was in fact able to cross something off, which feels pretty darn cool, and I have many more things that I want to achieve.

I decided that I would share my bucket list with you, in hopes of maybe inspiring my readers to make goals and work to reach them. To see a list of things to accomplish makes you want to work to cross them off your list. And when the time comes to actually be able to cross something off, let me tell you, it is a pretty cool feeling

Becky’s Bucket List:

– Go to Japan
Go to New York
– Backpack around Europe
– Bungee at Nevis Bungee in New Zealand
– Guinea pig ball down the hill in New Zealand
Learn to surf
Sky Dive
– Play the key-tar
– Get published in something bigger than the local newspaper
– Run a marathon
– Build a bear at the Build-a-Bear workshop
– Hold a baby gorilla and/or orangutan
– See the Vatican
– Get a puppy
– Be a flight attendant for West Jet
– Live in a big city
– Be an event planner
– Be in a movie
– Have dinner with someone important (besides myself)
– Tour with a band
– Get invited to a Geisha House
– Have my own family
– Own my own home
– Visit an Ashram
– Be involved with a charity
– Start my own website
– Own a Shiba Inu
– be on ‘The Amazing Race’
– See Pink and Christina Aguilera live

The most important thing I want to accomplish is to make a difference in the world somehow. Maybe it’s only to make a difference in one person’s life, or many people, I want to be able to look back on my time here knowing that someone will always remember what I’ve done.

I may not have 100 things to accomplish yet, but I still feel that life is just beginning and I will come across many more things to add.

What do you want to do before you kick the bucket?

    Shoot the covers of Vanity Fair, GQ, Rolling Stone and Sports Illustrated. You can scratch the have dinner part off. 😀 I'm looking at your list and thinking you could take care of a few of those this year alone.

    I wish you would have numbered your list because then I could tell you I have an issue with #22. Ahem….I wonder who your parents are? ;p

    Learn to surf (and swim, kind of important!), get to New Zealand and shred SnowPark, among every other activity imaginable to do in NZ… These two items top the list, which is growing daily!
