The 110 things I want to do before I die

Everyone has a dream that they want to fulfil in life or want to experience something that they wouldn’t usually get to experience, this is where a bucket list comes in. I have made a hundred bucket lists over my life but I either lose it, forget about it or I just keep starting a new one that also ends up getting lost in the abyss. I actually have a more recent bucket list in a cute little notebook somewhere in my house but I looked everywhere trying to find it and it is nowhere to be found, so I started yet another bucket list. I already have over 100 things on my list, some of which are partially doubled up so I will share those with you in the hope of giving you some ideas or just a good read. I will be attempting to complete most of these with the hopes of talking about each one of them a little more when I get there.

  1. Appearing on the front of a magazine isn’t all that. To everyone who knows you, they’ve seen your photo before, to anyone who doesn’t know you you’re just another face. My face was distributed nationwide to 400 offices. It may as well never have happened 😝 (but it made my Grandma very proud!).

    1. Hey Anna, thanks for the comment. I had never thought about being on the front of a magazine before until I saw someone else talk about it but whether it actually means anything or not, or if one person sees it or 100, I think it would just be an amazing experience and I would probably hang mine in my room just so I can say I’ve done it. It’s awesome that you got to do it, just to have that experience. 🙂 MX
