Writing a bucket list

“Man is a goal seeking animal. His life only has meaning if he is reaching out and striving for his goals” -Aristotle

When you think of a bucket list you may think to write down the most extraordinary things in the world. Some people think this is what a bucket list is meant to be. It isn’t entirely. For example in my bucket list I had “Get into university”. A bucket list could just be a list of things you want to accomplish, a list of people you want to meet, activities you want to do. It’s yours and it can be anything.

Creating a bucket list can seem daunting so within this short blog post I want to get you guys thinking about what you could put into yours, some of the suggestions I am going to give won’t be extreme but bucket list worthy all the same.


1.       Go rock climbing.

2.       Climb a mountain.

3.       Run a marathon.

4.       Watch a football game at a stadium.

5.       Get a degree.

6.       Dress up and go to Comic Con.

7.       Learn to play an instrument.

8.       Take a dance class.

9.       Master the art of Photoshop.

10.   Take a yoga class.

11.   Bake a cake.

12.   Take part in a self-defence class.

13.   Do a first aid class.

14.   Learn to sew.

15.   Go camping.

16.   Go ice-skating.

17.   Go hiking.

18.   Go horseback riding.

19.   Go stargazing.

20.   Get something you have written published. 

21.   Get a pet.

22.   Learn to cook.

23.   Pass your driving test. 

24.   Volunteer your time to others.

25.   Learn a language.

26.   Go to a shooting range.

27.   Learn how to work a coffee machine.

28.   Read a book.

Above is just a short list of some of the different things you could add to your bucket list, I tried to keep it simple and generic but you can make it as extravagant as you would like. I think having a bucket list is so important. Once you start writing one you really do realise how much you can do within this life. You can also do several different bucket lists if you would like such as a 2 year bucket list or one that has everything you want to do before you die. The choice is completely yours. Just do whatever you feel comfortable with. Always remember a bucket list is like a blank canvas and you can paint it with as many colours as you would like. Don’t be afraid of putting something outrageous or something others may do on a daily basis.

I wanted to try and write a short bucket list, I hope you guys all liked this post, feel free to drop a comment and share your bucket list below. If you would like a post on my own personal bucket list let me know and give this post a share. Peace and love x
