Bucket Lists: Hopes and Dreams

When you are lying on your deathbed, will you feel despondent or serene? Will you fight and scream for a second chance, or fade away with the current? Will you bemoan lost opportunities, or will you smile and say you did everything you could?

Our lives are caught up in work and school that it is hard to remember that we have friends to hang out with, places to go, and memories to make. With the coronavirus hitting, this is more than a perfect time to develop your bucket list for when everything clears up.

For those of you who don’t know – and I hope this group is few – a bucket list is a list of experiences or achievements you want to make before you die. It does not even have to be before you die. It can be a summer bucket list. It can be a July bucket list. Or a 2020 bucket list.

The bucket list is adaptable, is what I am trying to say.

And, honestly, like a daily schedule, it’s good way to remember that you need to relax and go out into the world and just have fun. Even if it is for one day, it beats having to sit around at home and work on your computer.

Anyways, here’s my bucket list. Not for the summer because I don’t have one – yet. But a bucket list before I die.

  1. Go backpacking in Europe with my friends.
  2. Read every single fiction book in my library.
  3. Participate in a good and fun scavenger hunt that I set up or my friends set up.
  4. Attend a One Republic concert.
  5. Kiss in the rain!
  6. Fall asleep under the stars.
  7. Get married/buy a house.
  8. Stay in a cabin by the mountain with my friends.
  9. Attend a party with my friends.
  10. Find someone I love.
  11. Find friends that will eat chocolate with me and watch Harry Potter movies with.
  12. Become a forensic medical examiner (er, maybe not possible, but I’ll try)
  13. Go to a good college/finish college.
  14. Have a Pinterest-worthy bedroom.
  15. Host an event for the community.
  16. Write a short novel that I am proud of.
  17. Get over what others think of me.
  18. Visit the Harry Potter set in London and take the Sorting Hat quiz.
  19. Give blood.
  20. Be happier.

That is my bucket list. I would be stoked to see what your bucket lists comprise of! Send it in through the comments or through my email. I can’t wait to see them!

Lots of love and dream on,

Jess
