My Bucket List

For as long as I can remember I have always believed in living life with no regrets.  When I was in college in California I made a bucket list, and slowly chipped away at it.  I have had so many great experiences so far from it, such as sky diving, moving to New York, repelling into a cave, and driving cross country.  Now that I live in New York, and have started another chapter in my life, I decided at the beginning of this year to revisit my bucket list, and add to it.  As you can see, I have included things both Big and Small, things that I can do this month, and things that will take years to do.  I figured that if I was going to be sharing with you daily, I might as well let you enjoy the journey I am on through working on my bucket list.

  1. Nice list, makes me want to write mine down…I always just say things are on my bucket list. Cheers and have fun getting through these.

  2. Thanks. Having them written down helps me focus on what I want to do. I’m one of those people that like to check things off my to do list, so this works for me. Good luck with your bucket list as well. 🙂

  3. Hi Denise, came across your blog and I really like your long bucket list. How has it been going? Read your post about French – it’s one language highest on my list too.

    Just completed a dream of mine – an iPhone app (adream) where people can share their dreams and goals in a fun way. If you own an iPhone, hope you’ll find it useful to achieving your goals 🙂 it’s my little dream to help people achieve theirs in this way..

    Best, Ray
