Bucket List

Everybody seems to have at least one or two things they would like to do before they die. It could be anything, really; from little things such as trying a new food you have always wanted to taste, to something as big as leaving Earth’s atmosphere. Many people even create their own “Bucket Lists” with sometimes dozens of things they want to do before they “kick the bucket.” Bucket lists are an interesting and fun things to make, and they are helpful in keeping track of the many things you say you’re going to do. I believe it would be very neat if everyone took the time to create their own bucket list. Here are some of the things I have added to my very own bucket list, and I hope I am able to check them off before I go!

  • Visit Switzerland
  • Own an animal rescue/shelter
  • Rescue animals
  • Attend a concert of one of my favorite singers/bands
  • Take a beautiful picture of lightning
  • Own an ice cream parlor
  • Have a paintball fight
  • Go ice skating
  • Visit M&M World in Las Vegas, Orlando, and London
  • Learn to surf
  • Visit all 5o states
  • Visit all of the National Parks
  • See the Northern Lights
  • Go indoor skydiving
  • Go skydiving
  • Get a tattoo
  • Ride a Zipline

This isn’t all that I have on my bucket list, but these are some of the things I hope to do most.

If Anything was Possible…

What would you attempt to do if you knew you wouldn’t, and couldn’t, fail? If you were guaranteed to succeed in one thing, what would it be? This question is a bit hard for me to answer; what one thing would I choose to do? After pondering the many possibilities, I would probably have quite a few, I would have my thoughts narrowed down to one option. I would attempt to put an end to animal abuse and poaching. After all, if I was guaranteed to succeed, why not do something useful? Although I know this will probably not be ending any time soon, one can hope, can’t I?
