Bucket List

Most of us have one. A Bucket List that is. And ever since the 2007 movie, The Bucket List, staring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman came out, a lot of us have actually decided to write it down. (Side note: if you have not seen that movie, stop what you doing right now and watch it. It is fantastic.) I’ve always had dreams and aspirations, as well as random adventures I’ve wanted to partake in, but until the beginning of this year, I had never written them down. So here it is, my Bucket List:

As you can tell, a lot of my list involves travel. I’ve really been bitten by the travel bug lately, and want to make it a point to visit as much of the world as possible while I am still young and able. I am at a time in my life where I am more free than I have ever been, and have less responsibilities than I will have in the future. I plan to take advantage of my freedom while I still can. Moving to NYC is just a step in my journey, and I have never been more excited to see where it takes me.

I will continue to add more to my list, and to cross things off as I accomplish them.
