It’s time to share a list with you. You should be very excited at the prospect of glimpsing one of them since they are so rare – har de har har!
Whether people have actually written a bucket list down or not, I think most have one in their heads. At some point, most of us have said that we were going to do something before we died. Although, I doubt I’ll do most of these because of money, I can always dream – which is something I’m really good at.
- Sky Dive – I have wanted to do this for over 20 years. Unfortunately, I don’t think my knees could take the landing and the ground probably wouldn’t like it either!
- Write a Book – The first time I wrote a short story in the 6th grade, I decided I wanted to write a book. I have several in my head, it’s just a matter of putting them on paper.
- Go to England – My love affair with England started about 10 years ago. This is probably the one I would most like to do but is the least likely of happening.
- Move Back to Washington – I love my home state and I miss my family. I hope before I die, I can move back home.
- Watch Megan Graduate – This is the most likely to actually happen (knock on wood).Good luck Megan!
- Learn Tai Chi – I’m planning on starting solo training. According to the Arthritis Foundation, Tai Chi is helpful with arthritis in that it “may improve mobility, breathing and relaxation”.
- Make a Quilt – I want to make a basic “patchwork” quilt like I had when I was little. This one is certainly doable.
- Visit the Smithsonian with my mom – While it’s not quite as exciting as England, I know I can spend days wandering through all the buildings including the National Postal Museum.
- UPDATED 09/05/11: See a Bruce Springsteen concert – My dad promised to take me to one if he ever came to Yakima which of course, had a chance of 1 in a billion of happening. I would still REALLY like to see one, even though he rarely tours now.
I’m sure there are a few other things that I’ve forgotten to add or perhaps there is even something that I didn’t know I wanted to do. If I think of something more, I’ll add it and if I do something on my list, I’ll keep you updated.
