Things I'd like to do.

The Bucket List

One of the most expansive bucket lists I have come across.

‘The Bucket List.’
‘Things to do before you die.’

An old craze that appears to have been resurrected, as seen by the brilliant ‘An Idiot Abroad 2.”

After stumbling across a few lists others have orchestrated, it got me thinking.

So here’s 27 (there’s no way I could come up with 101! But I’ll keep adding things every so often) things I want to do before I die.

  1. Visit America 16.05.2012 – 24.05.2012
     Viva Las Vegas! I ticked number one off my bucket list in May 2012 when flying over to Sin City for Spencer & Rachel’s ‘Fabulous’ Elvis inspired wedding! Well That’s Nevada ticked off the 52 states list anyway!

  2. Set foot on every continent
  3. Have the confidence to actually write some comedy material
  4. Have the confidence to actually stand on a stage and perform some stand up
  5. Become a internationally known successful comedian
  6. Come out of the casino having actually WON some money
  7. Re-learn the guitar
  8. Be in a TV show audience
  9. Run a half-marathon 17.03.2013
    Warwick hosted it’s first ever half marathon event in March 2013 and in order to cross an item off my bucket list, stupidly I signed up. My main targets were; 1) not to die and 2) actually finish. I can safely say I completed both of these targets and even surpassed the second by finishing in under two hours (1 hour 52 minutes and 15 seconds to be exact!) I’m so stupid I’ve signed up to do it again in March 2014!
  10. Run a full-marathon
  11. Get fit
  12. Check Facebook no more than twice a day
  13. Tie a secret to a balloon and let it go
  14. Go to the World Cup (and preferably see England win it)
  15. Become a fashion hairstyle icon like David Beckham
  16. Bury a time capsule
  17. Do 100 press ups in one go
  18. Do 100 sit ups in one go
  19. Get a six-pack
  20. Visit Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (again; this time getting a photo)
  21. Bungee jump
  22. Enter and win a competition
  23. Go to Stonehenge
  24. Shake hands with the President of the United States
  25. Visit all 50 States in America
    States I have visited: Nevada. Only 49 to go!
  26. Be an extra in a movie
  27. Learn Spanish.
    Ok, so this is a bit of a weird one. I learnt Spanish in Year 6 at primary school , but now my understanding of the language is ‘Hola!’ I think it’s time to start learning again!
