My bucket list

I was inspired by The Traveling Writer’s post on writing a bucket list. She said it’s not just a list of goals but of dreams.

Unfortunately, I’ve never gotten around to writing a bucket list, mainly because I was afraid of disappointing myself by not crossing out every one of the wish.

Couldn't find a photo of a real bucket.

Still, life’s too short to think about me letting myself down so here are a few that I hurriedly jot down at work (and now). Not in order of importance:

  1. Go on a round-the-world trip
  2. Learn all six official languages of UN: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish
  3. Be fluent in languages I’ve learned
  4. Go on a cruise
  5. Publish a book–hardcopy or e-book
  6. Be an inspiration to someone
  7. Live right next to a lavendar field
    • Make my own lavendar-scented oil
  8. Live in X-country for at least a year
    • France
    • Japan
    • Taiwan
  9. Make my own ice cream
  10. Watch a musical
  11. Watch a French musical
  12. Have and raise kickass kids
  13. Skydiving
  14. Travel solo
  15. See the New7Wonders_of_the_World
  16. Be in a happy romantic relationship
  17. Do standup comedy
  18. Get invited on a TV show
  19. Host my own travel show (I love you Ian Wright!)
  20. Be referenced on Wikipedia
  21. Be an entry on Wikipedia (please be nice!)
  22. Have my own travelling tarot reading stall–so gypsy!

I’m sure the list would grow. That’s why we’re alive.

What would be on your bucket list?

    1. Thanks! I think writing a list is therapeutic. Share with me yours when you’re done.
      I was in a lavender field once. It buzzing with bees. :D
