My Bucket List

This is a Bucket List and a Wish List because some of the things just Aren’t Going to Happen, but in a perfect world, they would!

And as with my list of fears and quirks, this list will be ever growing – and hopefully every once in awhile I’ll be marking some as “Finished”!

  1. Sky dive – that’s right, she who is afraid of everything wants to sky dive.
  2. Go to DisneyWorld
  3. Create and run an animal sanctuary
  4. See Green Day in concert Updated to add:  see Green Day in concert more
  5. Produce a benefit concert that brings in tons of money that I would use to buy stuff for homeless people, but also allows me to watch all of my favorite local talent singing things that I have dictated (or at least heavily influenced)
  6. Change someone’s life significantly for the better
  7. Pet one of every animal
  8. Go to France
  9. See REM in concert
  10. Meet Ellen Degeneres and hang out with her
  11. See the Indians win a World Series and the Browns win the Superbowl
  12. Finally find a hat that looks good on my head
  13. Get my third and final tattoo This has been updated since I now have 5 tattoos and want one more
  14. Experience life without wrist pain Cortisone shots for the win!  Nope, not a win. Just kidding.  Still with the wrist pain.
  15. Build the biggest collection of saint books in the U.S.
  16. Live somewhere with an in ground swimming pool in the backyard

  20. Live in New York City

  23. Own stock in Apple
  24. Go in a helicopter and live to tell
  25. Take a prize winning photograph
  26. Invent something
  27. Find a way to recreate Slush Puppy slushies in my own home (I have yet to find a slushy maker that works)
  28. Feel like I look good in what I’m wearing, no matter what size I am – whether that means losing weight so I feel like I look good or finding clothes that look good on me as I am, I don’t know
  29. Change someone’s opinion about something (it doesn’t matter who or what the opinion is!)
  30. See Justice served more often than not (I don’t know if that means changing the way the news reports things, or actually changing the justice system)

  1. Sandy, I could take care of a few things on my bucket list if I come visit you – New England in the fall, you and your family could catch me while I do a trust fall…I’m seeing some good things, here 😉 Seriously, though, if I ever do get to go there, first stop is your house! In fact, you just inspired another Bucket List thing that I’m about to add…

  2. #31 – we finally met in person a couple of years ago! Let me know when you want to come back to Atlanta! 🙂

  3. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this! If I can assist in completion of said tasks, please don’t hesitate to let me know!! Also, I wrote a bucket list a year or so ago, if you are able to assist me in any way, also let me know. 🙂
