My Bucket List

The things I put in this bucket list should serve, in the future, to make me happy in one of two ways: 1) that I was able to spend my life in my own way, or 2) that I’ve done what I’ve promised to do. Although I look very narcissistic in this post,  I just made it up from my own head because I’m really fond of writing lists. Isn't it great to cross out something that you've always wanted to do? I created a bucket list just so I can keep track of things and because I like staring at them. As you notice, there are so many things that I haven't done yet. And I look forward to crossing them out!
