Bucket list

I haven’t ever seen the movie The Bucket List, but I always have had an informal “bucket list” wandering around in my head. Not because I’m going to die, but a list of things I would like to accomplish at some point in my life. I had made out a list back in the beginning of the year, and I thought that I should share what’s on MY bucket list.

This list isn’t in any particular order.
