The Bucket List

So the past few days I've been thinking a lot about the things I want to do in life. The things that aren't necessarily "common" or "usual" or "expected" to do, but the things I want to accomplish, see, or do. I decided to come up with a list of things I want to do before I am 50. That gives me ~22 years to accomplish it. So here's the list, in no particular order.

My Bucket List

1. Visit Europe
2. Travel to Hawaii
3. Get my bachelor's degree
4. Learn how to drive a motorcycle
5. Ride in a helicopter
6. Meet a celebrity
7. Go to Ground Zero in NYC
8. Become a community leader
9. Have a second child (this one is still up in the air)
10. Make a difference in a child's life (that is not my child)
11. Trace my family roots back as far as possible
12. See my son graduate high school, college, and get married
13. Compete in a triathlon
14. Run a 5k
15. Ride a "Tour for the Cure" race
16. Teach my child about his family members that have passed before his time
17. Fly in the cockpit of an airplane
18. Sky dive
19. Swim with the dolphins
20. Buy a bigger house
21. Get my master's degree
22. Become a certified CPR instructor
23. Plant my own garden (and actually have it grow!)
24. See the Grand Canyon
25. See the Las Vegas Strip
26. Visit Australia
27. Organize a community group
28. Visit Alaska
29. Travel to the Virgin Islands
30. Take my child to Walt Disney World

I will be adding to the list as more things come along, and updating as I can cross things off also.
