The Bucket Stops Here

by SimplySharpe on August 24, 2010

Today I was catching up on one of my favorite blogs written by a friend and mentor, Todd Schnick, and got inspired. It’s not unusual for me to be inspired by him. I just decided that it was 12:54 AM and seeing that I am still awake, there is no time like the present to act on inspiration.

If you have not already read his post (your personal invitation is in the mail) about creating your own Bucket List, read it now HERE.

I decided there was no reason I could not share my list with my loving readers, especially the ones that complain about my lack of posting.

Like Todd, I have never seen the movie The Bucket List. I will admit to trying to watch it, but it did not hold my attention. I understand this list may not hold yours and you should know it’s subject to change when I have some sleep behind me, but for now in all it’s glory, here is my Bucket List:

1. Write a book

2. Travel to Italy

3. Live outside the states for at least a year

4. Speak a second language fluently (Pig Latin does not count)

5. Have the financial resources to take my entire family on a trip around the world

6. Make a difference in one person’s life without anyone knowing who, what, when, where, why or how

7. Visit all 50 states

8. Move back to the place where it all began, NY

9. Let everyone I know how I feel about them for better or for worse

10. Host a talk show

11. Learn how to DJ

12. Learn how to knit like my Grandma

13. Paint something that I would be proud tohang on my own wall

14. Learn how to use a camera of the non point and shoot variety

15. Be my own tech support

16. Swim with dolphins

17. Run more then a mile

18. Be part of a movie — writing, acting or producing

19. Live in a clutter free, well decorated home

20. Design a line of comfortable, YET ridiculously fabulous shoes

What is on your list? What items on mine can you check off? Did you love every minute?

And as far as what is on my list… Well, that gives me something to think about and blog about too!!

I look forward to reading your list, Taryn!

I already learned something new about you… I knew all of the ones you checked off except #3. I know you travel often, but did not know you lived abroad for a year? Very cool!!

You can definitely be my partner in creation on #20 🙂

#11 is on my bucket list too. But right now I’m working on being a capoerista. I can only pursue one quirky hobby at a time. 🙂

That’s an interesting one. I need to update my own quirky hobby list for 2011 🙂
