“Bucket List; noun. A number of experiences or achievements that someone wishes to have or accomplish within their lifetime.”
People have different views on bucket lists. Some think they’re a bad idea, why make a list of things you want to do in your life when you’re not going to go to any effort to make these things happen?
But I think they’re a great idea. For the most part I believe writing a list of the things you want to do/see/achieve in life will inspire and urge you to go out of your way to make the things happen. I know some people won’t go out of their way to make the things happen but the majority of people will.
I know some people say, why have a list? Surely you want to experience everything the world has to offer?
Yes, I do. My list doesn’t stop here. I continuously add more and more to it, it really is never ending.
