Since there was a thread titled Bucket List in the Teen Forum, where only teens can post, I renamed that thread so I could create a new Bucket List thread for the rest of us, and hopefully there won't be any confusion between the two threads.<br><br>
This was because I wanted to post my own Bucket List (the list of things you want to do and places to visit before you die, or kick the bucket), but I don't have much in the list just yet. I'll get started anyway.<br><br>
1. Visit Italy.<br>
2. Visit Japan.<br>
3. Visit Greece.<br>
4. get a dog<br>
5. get a poem published in a prestigious magazine<br><br>
I'm still thinking about the rest of the list... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/popcorn.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Popcorn">

I really hate the terms "bucket list" and "kick the bucket."</div>
</div>
<br>
You're a bucket.<br><br><br>
On a serious note, I don't get the idea of making a list of things to do before you die, you could die tomorrow, so if you want to do something, do it now.

I like this idea. Yes, we could all die tomorrow, but some things we want to do we're not ready to do today, they take more planning than that, or we're simply doing other things at the moment. So what's wrong with a life to-do list? I've got one, and I'll post some of it when I get back from work. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:">

1. Build my own natural house with my own hands<br>
2. Grow my own organic food<br>
3. Travel somewhere tropical (Thailand, Hawaii, South America)<br><br>
I have never actually made a bucket list before, and now I'm going to sit down and really think about it. It's inspiring because I totally am the type of person who does what I want to do with my life, so this may be a good visualization exercise. Thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I love reading these. It's so fascinating to see everyone's dreams and goals.<br>
Small goals for now:<br>
- Get to Chicago to visit friends<br>
- adopt a cat<br>
- make sure friends in other states know when I actually do die

This is a cool thread. I've never actually made a list, although I have some things I'd like to do. I'm gonna do some thinking and post later.

I don't really have many, maybe that explains why I'm so unmotivated all the time.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:"> I do want to live by the sea one day but I can't see that happening for at least 10 years.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Yes, but as such, it's kind of my favorite. I peed on a cathedral in Europe and on Mt. Fuji (I'm counting it as a holy site) in Asia. There aren't a whole lot of holy sites in N. America that I know of (except maybe American Indian burial grounds, and I'm kind of scared ghosts would come after me...) so I haven't done that yet, and I have yet to visit S. America, Africa, or Australia. But there will be weeing, don't you fret. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

Not a lot I really want to do, but building one of these (or something similar) has been a dream of mine for quite a while.<br><br><a href="http:" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ENIhmDskmY</a>

LOL, a couple of my friends worked in Yellowstone Park during summers while we were in college. They joined the IPIOF club.

1. Be happy.<br><br>
I think that covers it.

True, but what's in your bucket list that would help you to be happy? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Just out of curiosity, why those places in particular? I always like to hear why people want to visit certain places? Or if they even know why...

Be the very best person I can be, try to do a little bit of good (for myself, for my friends and family, for the world) every single day.<br><br>
Everything else is just extra.

Number 4 I can understand, the other 3 are overrated. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

OK. Here goes... The first two I've already started.<br><br><br>
1. Become fluent in Spanish (I’m actually working on this now, I’m at the stage where I know enough to get by pretty well, but I’d love to <span style="text-decoration:underline;">truly</span> know the language).<br>
2. Get a PhD (originally, my goal was go back to school, but I’m doing that now. This Masters seems never-ending though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">).<br>
3. Run a 50-mile trail run. The more I’m getting into running on trails more than roads, the more wonderful (although impossible) this seems. I can’t say I have much desire to run any further than I have (half-marathon) on roads, but to me there is something very appealing to doing one of these crazy long trail runs one day (<span style="text-decoration:underline;">in the far, far future</span>). I can’t even imagine the sense of accomplishment in finishing something like that.<br>
4. Go hiking/backpacking through Argentina & Chile.<br>
5. Do a multi-day bike tour through some Mid-Atlantic or New England states.<br>
6. Become knowledgeable in plant identifications. Folks who can go hiking and point out what every plant/tree they see is always impress me. The problem is, I’m not always focused enough to take it slow, and do this when I’m out in nature…. I’d like to work on that.<br>
7. Travel as much as I can. I hesitate to list specific places, as there are many throughout the United States and the world that I’d like to see…. And some that I’d like to visit again.
