On Bucket Lists

When I was little, I was super weird. I loved to make lists. I made lists of books I had read, books I needed to read, pet I’ve owned (I went through a lot of hamsters), people I knew, all sorts of OCD shit.
As a quasi-adult, and still super weird, I love bucket lists. Almost as much as I love itineraries. A few years ago I found an old notebook and set about writing a bucket list, to be checked off periodically as I fulfill my dreams. Because, I don’t know, I guess I expected to skydive or climb Mt Everest each weekend. It ended up reaching, like, biblical proportions, filling half the notebook, categorized into continents and activity types.
While I actually got to check some of them off in Central America, like learning to surf and going snorkeling in the Caribbean, there are still about 700 more I need to go ahead and get done.
It looks a lot like this one, actually. I’ve already done a few, but 25, 28, 38, 47, 78, 88, 133 140, 159, 163 are top priorities….so I guess I’m going to busy for the next 200 years or so.

What have you done that scares you? 


I'd love to hear what you think! Just try not to be an asshole.
