The Bucket List

I personally did not see the movie that I am stealing the title to this post from, but I heard it was good. It was about these two old guys who had a list of things that they wanted to do before they "kicked the bucket" and how they went about completing this list. My mom likes to give me extremely detailed accounts of the movies that she and Dad go see, even if I say that I am going to go see it too. Then, I figure why spend the almost ten bucks to see something that I already know the ending to? But, I digress. My point is that I have a list of things that I must do before I die and I want to share them with you. This list is ever growing, changing, and I am sure there will be things that I forget about. There is no particular order to this list. Just go with it.

  • Jump out of a plane
  • Go overseas.
  • Plant a flower garden
  • Adopt a baby
  • Get a puppy
  • Keep a goldfish alive for longer than a month
  • Write a book
  • Get married(this should probably be above the have a baby/adopt one...)
  • Go on a long term mission trip
  • Be "Millie" in Thoroughly Modern Millie"
  • Have a white picket fence
  • Go on a cross country road trip
  • Be the Artistic Director of a regional theatre
  • Be a professional photographer
  • Be on staff with Young Life
  • Buy a car
  • Create a foundation for underprivileged kids to go to college
  • Win lottery or be famous author to have money to create foundation
  • Live in New England
  • Sing in a night club (When I say night club, I mean a jazz club that's smokey and dark...specifics are important here, people.)
  • Graduate from college. (this one should probably be further up on the list.)
  • Work at a job I love
  • Read as many books as I can
  • Be known for my extensive library
  • Have season tickets to the symphony, the theatre, GT football and basketball games, and the Braves

As I think of more I'll add them in parts 2, 3, and so on. Now, to start checking it off...
