My Bucket List

      Yes it may seem a bit silly for a seventeen year old to have already started writing a bucket list. The truth behind why I started writing one now is because I'll have that much more time (Hopefully) to check off the things on my list. Doesn't sound that silly anymore now does it?

      I have to give credit for the idea of posting this on my blog to my dear friend charity. She is an amazing girl that I met at school my sophomore year. She was just telling me the other day in chemistry class that she has a blog and that she blogs about her bucket list. I thought this was a fantastic idea, and in NO MEANS am I trying to steal that from her. Eventually I'll put the link to her blog up, but I can't find it right now.

      If you don't know what a bucket list is, here is my definition: A list of adventures both big, and little, that you would like to take before you pass away. This could be anything from going to another country, to trying ice cream for the first time. It's a list of dreams that you would like to accomplish, that you lay out for yourself to see and check off the items as you accomplish them.

  1. This is definitely an inspiration! (and it's interesting to see the things we have in common on our bucket list & even things we've both gotten to cross off on our bucket list [one together, it appears]) :) I should write all mine down! :D

    *Ever need to release a floating lantern, I have a few left I think ;)
