My Bucket List

It's been something i've thought about before, but have seemed to find reason to put off actually creating one. Well, I know someday I am going to die. And I intend to die with a smile on my face.

This whole thing started because of I said to my friend Joël (Male From Australia) that I am bored. I recently finished my classes, have nothing that I HAVE to be doing. And he informed me that I’m not making the most of my time. He also suggested I make a list of things to do before I die.

So I did. I just jotted down a few ideas, and then they started pouring out of me. All these things that are important for me to try to squeeze into my life at some point. And not just write them down, but make an effort to check them off.

Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman did it in 2007, and look how happy they look.

Troy and Abed from NBC’s Community did it during their freshman year of college (their list consisted of classic college film moments that constitute a great freshman year of college.).

So, why shouldn’t I have a list of things that I want to do? I talk about these plans; road trips, adventures, things that probably seem really random to other people.

Well, my dear Joël.

I would like some time to announce my list. And while I understand that the “List” is meant to be kept private… I don’t want to keep it to myself. I want my friends and family to hold me accountable for at least trying to make this stuff happen. So, I’ll work on it until January 1st, 2011 (or close to then… I may be on the road traveling that week, in which case it’ll go up as soon as possible) I’ll post my list as it is at that point on my page. And as I accomplish things, I’ll check them off while adding new things as I’m inspired.

Feel free to steal my ideas from my list and use them in your own. The list shouldn’t be mine to keep, but to share and hopefully help spawn new and awesome ideas for you to want to do while you’re still able to smile.

Someday we’re all going to die.
Until then, I’ve got stuff to do.
