The Bucket List

Bucket List

Welcome to my bucket list. Let’s face it, everybody has one in some way shape or form. Call them goals or what ever you like but we all have those things that we want to accomplish, wether it be for the long or the short term. I thought I’d add a little zest to mine by putting it out there for you all to witness. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m most likely won’t put EVERYTHING out there, but certainly more that I’d normally be comfortable with. And I’m not just focusing on the long term stuff like you normally hear when people talk about a “bucket list”. You know, the stuff they want to get done before they die. That just adds an element of depression that I don’t have time for. I’m going at it with 3 main motivators. First, I honestly believe that when I write things down it tends to imbed into my brain a little better. Second, making my list public will hopefully give me with a little push since I’m sure many of you will be asking about my progress (please do!). And lastly, I honestly hope that I might inspire you to make some progress towards those things that you’ve been wanting to do but haven’t quite gotten around to it.

With all that being said, the format will be simple. I plan to post an initial list of goals that I hope to tackle. I’m going to try to be as specific as possible and include an indicator of long term or short term (within the year). The list will update and change continually with additional items that I’d like to complete. Individual articles will be tagged as “bucket list” accordingly so that I can discuss my successes, and challenges along the way. Okay, enough said. Let’s get to the good stuff:
