Today is National Bucket List Day, What’s on Yours?
When we are born, we're born with a "bucket list". As infants growing up we don't realize that we have a subconcious "bucket list". The older we get the more our tastes and curiosities develop. In doing so it leads us to want to try things that we are really interested in before we pass away.
Stanford sums up the definition of "bucket list":
A bucket list is a list of the experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime. A bucket list is an itemized list of goals people want to accomplish before they “kick the bucket” — or die.
10 Bucket List Ideas
Fly On A Plane - if you've never flown on a plane, try it. It's a lot of fun and it's a lot faster then a train, bus or car. You also get to see a unique view when flying to your destination.
Go On A Cruise - I have done this once. I thought it was a blast. It was fun to see different ports of call everyday.
Jump Out Of A Plane - jump out of a perfectly good plane! I am still wanting to do this, here are some locations in Michigan for you to visit.
Try Sushi - fear was the only thing that held me back from trying this tasty, healthy dish. Get past the "mouth feel" and you'll be happy you tried it.
Go To A Professional Sporting Event - take in a game in Detroit. Detroit is passionate about their teams and if you've never been, it's time to find out what you've been missing.
Go To Vegas Baby! - just because "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas", it shouldn't scare you from a couple of days of good times and maybe winning some money.
Drive A Tank - it is legal to own a tank in Michigan. Find someone who owns one and ask them if you can take it for a spin.
Scuba Diving - I have never done this, I've snorkeled before. The only thing thing I would be worried about is the pressure and my ears popping. Otherwise, let's suit up and do some diving.
Set A Guiness World Record - why not? Break a current record or set a record in a new category you created. The picture above is the world record for largest fruit display. What can you do?
Run A Marathon - this is on my bucket list. I recently participated in my first 5K. It was a lot of fun. If we're running marathons we need to start training.
