Bucket List

In an earlier post I mentioned (I say mentioned, the whole post was pretty much centred around it), that at the end of August, it will be my twenty seventh birthday.  Now, since then I’ve been having a little think.  This new age means that there will only be three years until I am thirty.  Three years.  Only three years.  This is some scary sh*t.

Right, so with the rather large number hanging over me, I’ve realised there is quite a lot of things that I want to do before I hit thirty and everything starts getting a little more difficult what with children and the old arthritis setting in...  So to keep me on track and make sure I at the very least acknowledge and therefore attempt to complete these things I’ve decided to compile a bucket list.  Now I know a bucket list consists of stuff you want to do before you die, but mine is going to be stuff I want to complete before I turn thirty and stuff before I die.  I’m also gonna add some stuff that I have done to the bottom just because it will make me feel better, I’ll cross it through and stuff, I’m weird like that...

So here is my bucket list, it’s going to be available on a separate page of my blog so you can keep a track of how I’m getting on.

I’ve gone for a hundred things because it seems quite a popular number with most other bucket lists... If you can’t beat them join them.

Now I ain't stupid, I know that this is not 100 things, hell, I've done a maths degree, I know how to count to one hundred (I can actually get all the way up to 239 actually), but I'm leaving me some gaps, I know that there will be something I think of, something that I decide I must do, so as time goes on, I can add it all to my list :)

Let me know what would be on your bucket list, hell, if some suggestions are good I may just steal a few, I’m not above it... :)

  1. I absolutely agree with owning my own business. I was 26 this year, I also feel that need to start listing stuff to of my list though, is I want to be a fully self-employed, not working for anyone but me, wedding photographer by the time I am 30. Got 3 1/2 years to go... GONNA DO IT!

    Good luck with your list- sounds like you need to take a year out to go travelling!!

    1. I know, I could do with a good few years travelling really! But I'll get there eventually, there's so much to see



  2. Love your list. I'm the other way around...i'm almost fourteen! haha. Keeep up th great blog posts:D


  3. Donating blood is on my bucket list, too! I just see it as something so easy to do that makes such a difference.
    Love the redesign of your blog, it looks gorgeous!

  4. Such an awesome list! I wrote a bucket list when I started uni 3 years ago and have recently rediscovered it! It was so awesome to go through and cross off the things I have managed to do! :) have fun completing your list!

  5. I love your list. I definitely want to visit those places too. I've never actually written down an entire list of what I would like to accomplish, it's not a bad idea!

    BTW, thanks for the comment!
