Bucket List

I was watching Pippi Peterson’s YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/designfunthings) about her RV life and she talked about a bucket list. I used to have a bucket list but hadn’t thought about it in years. So it gets me thinking I need to look at my old bucket list. It used to be on 43things (a great make-a-list site) but alas that site is gone. Fortunately, I downloaded it.

43Things Bucket List

  • Learn free motion quilting – DONE
  • Remove silver fillings – DONE
  • Knit a sweater – DONE
  • Learn to draw
  • Learn another language
  • Write a book and publish it

Not a single travel location which is surprising. I want to see many places and experience different cultures so I really need a new bucket list. But at least I have accomplished some of the list.

New Bucket List

  • Go to Ecuador and Gal├ípagos Islands
  • Visit Italy
  • Travel to Scotland and Ireland
  • Take a train ride
  • Travel by Van/Kombi and see Crater Lake, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and Redwoods
  • Publish a book
  • Sell the business and retire early – DONE
  • Heal my Fibromyalgia

Obviously I want to travel and write so that is one reason I am simplifying my life so I can afford to.

1993 Bucket List

I found a notebook from 1993 while I was reducing my belongings. It was interesting to see what I wrote and where I was in my life and thinking. And there was another list because I am the list queen. So here ya go:

  • Hike the Appalachian Trail
  • Go to Australia
  • Go to Disney World
  • Meet Robin Williams
  • Build a Robot
  • Publish a Novel
  • Run 3 miles without dying
  • Weigh 130 pounds
  • Get a Masters
  • Build a Grandfather’s Clock
  • Reupholster a piece of furniture – DONE
  • Make a Quilt – DONE

Have you noticed every list has some form of “Write a book”? Writing is important to me but I just haven’t gotten to the point where I have written a whole novel. Lots of short stories and half-written novels. So that is still an aspect of my life I will priotize.

I would love to hear about your gotta-do-this list in the comments. What adventure is on the top of your list?

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The words in your article seem to be running off the
    screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to
    do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you
    know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get
    the issue fixed soon. Kudos http://Bing.org/

      Thanks for the heads up. It looks good on ie7, slightly worst on ie8, and the worst on ie9 and ie10. I bet you don’t see the sidebar at all. Ie9 and ie10 dropped the sidebar completely. I certainly have my work cut out for me. Have a good one.
