My Bucket List

Screen Shot 2014-04-18 at 3.03.43 PM

I’m hoping to cross a few things off my bucket list this summer. Here’s what I have so far:

  1. Graduate High School
  2. Graduate College
  3. Dance like in an old black and white film
  4. Take a hot air balloon ride
  5. Go to a ball. Better yet, a masquerade
  6. Make sushi
  7. Skydive
  8. Swim in a waterfall
  9. Read as many books as possible (a hard one to quantify)
  10. Be in a college marching band
  11. Order a coffee in France in French
  12. Ditch school
  13. Make a mistake. Then, move on
  14. Color my hair
  15. Try something you’ve wanted to do but never have
  16. Star gaze. Then watch the sunrise. Preferably with wonderful people
  17. Run a half marathon (I’m a realist…a full one is a stretch)
  18. Have the kind of night you should regret but don’t
  19. Go camping
  20. Cook a dinner appetizer to dessert
  21. Learn guitar or piano (or just be able to play one song)
  22. Have a Guinness in Ireland
  23. Get a tattoo
  24. Fall in love
  25. Take a multi-state road trip with friends
  26. Win a contest
  27. Attend an awards show
  28. Work at a coffee shop
  29. Go to a Cubs game
  30. Go to the top of The Sears Tower (I refuse to call it the Willis Tower)
  31. Get lost in a museum, preferably the Louvre
  32. Fly first class
  33. Explore Italy
  34. Have a NYE kiss
  35. Attend the taping of a talk show (Ellen or Late Night = top picks)
  36. Shop with a personal shopper
  37. Go on a sailboat

I’ll keep this post updated, adding and crossing things off my list. I’ll post pictures along the way

Enjoying a Guinness at the Guiness factory (although I prefer cider better)

I won a photo contest and got to meet my favorite band, The Summer Set. It was basically incredible

    Awesome list! Getting tickets for Ellen is near impossible (best of luck to you still!) but tickets to shows like Late Night are a tad bit easier for some weird reason. I hope you get to cross that off your list soon.

    And, PS, you totally inspired me to revamp my bucket list (thanks for the inspiration)!

      Thank you! I’ve had a running list for awhile and wanted to share. Happy to spark some ideas 🙂

    Great list! I’ve wanted to make a list like this for quite some time but just haven’t yet!
