Bucket List

Northern lights text overlay: my bucket list

buck·et list noun. a number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime.

A bucket list is a list of things you want to do before you’re past your prime & kick the bucket, meaning die. This isn’t an exhaustive or final list, I’m sure there will be much more to add as I continue through life. I have tried to make them as specific as possible, although most of the specific goals have I already completed. Some require funding or travel & all need a fair bit of planning, but most really just require my time. You will also notice that most of them are experiences rather than material things. A lot of the material things I have already acquired & are on my Reverse Bucket List.

  • Celebrate a white Christmas
  • Walk on the Great Wall of China
