What do you want to do before you “kick the bucket?” What accomplishments/events would make your life complete? Like many of you, I saw the movie The Bucket List a few years ago and cried, but I wasn’t moved to create one.
I’m not sure why, but I actually didn’t make one until very recently. As of today, it has 56 items. I’m not the skydiving, bungee jumping, shark swimming, do-anything-that-involves-risk-of-bodily-harm kinda girl, so mine may seem pretty lame. Lots of them involve travel or meeting celebrities or authors. I’ll spare you the obvious ones like “Write novels full-time” and “See my name in the NY Times #1 bestseller spot.” (If those weren’t on there, I’d seriously need to reconsider my line of work.) Without further ado, here are a few of my items:
- Work with UN Women.
- Be in a music video.
- Fly first class to Europe.
- Go ice skating.
- Dance around a may pole.
I’m proud to say I’ve already crossed a few things off:
See Grease on Broadway starring Max Crumm.(He won the part on the TV show Grease: You’re the One That I Want. Yeah, I voted for him, over 70 times.) Live in a castle.(I got to stay in the castle in England where they filmed The Haunting about a month after shooting wrapped.) Change clothes in a car on the side of the Pacific Coast Highway.(It’s really not as risqué as it sounds. The car had tinted windows and we were going to the beach.) Get a tatoo.(Actually, I have two and am planning a third.) Experience life as a nun for a week.(I used to want to be one, so what can I say?)
So, what’s on your “bucket list?” What have you been able to cross off?
I’m probably going to do the A to Z Blogging Challenge again in the future, so please let me know if you have any suggestions for “B”topics.
