Bucket List.

bucketlist1

I have found myself greatly vexed over the creation of  my own personal bucket list for the last several months. I haven’t so much had writers’ block as I just haven’t been driven to sort through my most prominent desires. I have found myself asking all of my friends and coworkers lately what they would do if they were to find out that their time here on earth was limited, but I didn’t really have an answer myself. It’s time to actually hash this thing out.

My mind naturally functions better with lists so I’m attempting to keep things separated into categories. Here’s the thing: I want input. If you think I missed something, tell me! Tell me what you want to do before you kick the proverbial bucket! I’m all ears!
