What's on your bucket list?

The other day I got an email from my sister. It's one of those you pass around and mark what you've done on this "bucket list." I'm definitely into the "bucket list" mentality. That was what my "Adventure a Month" was all about in The Laptop Dancer Diaries. And if the list below doesn't give you enough ideas, check out Ian Usher's list of 100 Goals in 100 Weeks.

I'm all for "Just Do It" and living life to the fullest, but each bucket list is going to be uniquely yours. What have you always wanted to do? What's holding you back? I also think it's fun to add things to your bucket list AFTER you've done them. Start out the day thinking, "What will be on my bucket list at the end of today?" Then when you have an opportunity to do something you've never done before, do it, and add it to your list (complete with your X marking it done!) What's on your bucket list this week?

If you want, cut and paste this into an email and add an X to the things you've done............Just for fun

Hi Vetski! I just saw your blog. I look forward to reading it from time to time, I enjoy your writing. I also saw that you like SIDEWAYS which I watched 2 nights ago for the 96th time.

A-Man! Great to see you out here! I guess I'll have to forgive you for your conniving behavior...

(Actually, I respect the way you play the game, so I'm using the term as a compliment. Just wish I'd have been a little smarter!)

So what about you're screenplays? Do you have a site?

Adam Mares said...

I don't. The only thing I have of interest is my Africa blog from years past. There are some great stories in there. All 100% true. More or less.

sometimes, as you know, i complicate my goals and goal setting. The nice thing about this form is its simplicity. "shoot a gun" boom. done. I don't have to think about how it's going to make me a better person. Simply a list of things I want.

And, wanting afterall, leads us toward our truest selves.

I'm going to put some things on a list now.
