Since I seem to be on a death theme this week (please refer to here and here), I thought I would continue through it with this thought: What do you do if you’ve already accomplished your “Bucket List”?
In case you don’t know, a Bucket List is a rambling list of things you want to do before you die (aka: kick the bucket). Bucket lists are big now and everyone you talk to seems to have one … besides me.
You see, I’m not really into doing the same things as other people. I’ve never seen (nor read) any Harry Potter movies/books, I wasn’t all about The Hunger Games, I don’t like sushi, and I won’t even touch Fifty Shades (well, I am, but that’s a story for later). Therefore, I never created a bucket list … mainly because everyone else was doing it. However, a few days ago I was thinking about people’s bucket lists and came to a realization: I completed most of the things that would’ve been on my Bucket List.
1. Become a published author. (check)
2. Teach college. (check)
3. Have a baby. (check) (Ok, to be fair, I didn’t plan to do this, but whatever.)
4. Go to Italy. (check)
5. Start a non-profit and/or become a missionary. (check)
6. Own a convertible. (check)
7. Live on the East Coast. (check)
8. Have a house on the water. (check)
9. Own a bookstore. (check)
And, that’s pretty much the extent of what would’ve been on my bucket list. (That’s either really great that I’ve accomplished the things I wanted, or really sad … I haven’t decided yet.)
I’ve always wanted to go to a cruise to Greece, but considering the current economical and political climate (and, DUDE, there are PIRATES in them thare waters), I think I’ll play it safe and instead take my family to someplace safe like, you know, LegoLand.
Do you have a “Bucket List”? What’s on it (or what would be on it)? What have you accomplished from it?
