Are there a few things that you need to do before you die? I'm sure there are, unless you think today is the day. Here's my grand list: 1. I've got to make a dude love me. Even if something goes wrong after that, at least a dude would have loved me once. 2. I've got to help someone in some big way. 3. I've got to do something really gutsy. 4. I have to drive 5. I have to graduate high school 6. I have to become an adult and become responsible 7. I have to know who I am 8. I have to change someone for the better 9. I have to have a random conversation with an interesting stranger. 10. I have to get old and talk about how "When I was your age, the first black president was elected"

What, no bungee jumping? No flashing people on a subway?

Nope, neither of those things for me. I couldn't bungee jump with this old body, I'm afraid that when the cord came to it's end, my spine would snap. It isn't in very good shape now As for flashing, I've already had that "pleasure" although it wasn't in the subway, it was in a drive through dairy. And, it was an accident

Well, as for John Travola and Julia Roberts, you also have to accomplish meeting this people before they die themselves, so I would make it a first priority! Do make sure they know they are on your little bucket list right there!

I'd hate to die with an unfinished book - it would be crappy not to know how it had ended. I'd have to come back and haunt my Mum until she'd read it and passed on the information! Seriously though, I'd like to die knowing all my children were happy and settled - and that my husband had given up smoking. I hope you find a dude to love you. I'm sure you won't have to MAKE him love you - when the right one comes along, he'll love you just because he does.

1) Enjoy Life. Humble I know. If I can succeed in making this goal true I will feel as though all I have lived through had relativity to my overall goal. I see no greater goal in life. I intent to maintain this as I progress along the way through life.

There are tons of things id love to before I die, but I probably will never get around to doing them or even have the chance to do them. Here are my most important ones:- 1. Go visit my home country Palestine. If i was to die, Id much rather die in my home land than on foreign soil. 2. Get married :D (cheesy I know) I havent really thought about that question so it took me a while to think, and even the answers I gave are not the only ones that I have in mind. There are other personal ones I dont want to share, and other ones that I just havent thought of yet (Which probably means they are not too important). I liked reading other people's answers. Thanks for asking, it opened a little door in my brain that made me think about what I really want to do ;) Good luck in achieving everything you want to do before you die

The first and foremost thing I'd want to do is meet my significant other. Once that's done, I think I'd be able to go in peace. But other than that... I'd like to write a story and get it published. I don't want it to be really popular or anything, but I'm just hoping that maybe a few people out there in the world will pick it up by some chance and learn something - anything at all from it. That would make me really happy. Though I'm still very young, I think I've pretty much done everything that I could possibly hope to do. Just a few things left, and I'll be content.

Hi. Last thing to do before i die? Well, of course make sure everything is properly and well arrange for my parent and family. Then would like to donate my money and organ as a charity. But the most important thing is to get forgiveness for the girl that I once hurt and loved the most. I guess that won't be hard to do. But i just hope to live long enough to be a better person and make sure I do good deed.

I've done plenty of stuff and I'm still young but I would like to own my own house for a while, record an album, and maybe some other stuff too.

Hi Sheepie, Well my dear girl when you grow old, there will be lots of stories to tell your cheildren and grandchildren of all the things that you have lived true and you can tell them about the old machine called "The Computer" and there was this thing call Mylot and how you used to write on it and have discussions on it with other people, they won't belive it, but that will be history.

Well nobody knows when will be his/her time to die but only God himself. Actually we do not know what date/months or year that would happen. SO definitely, we cannot have some preparations for that day. For me, I will just live my life each day to the fullest as it is my last..;-)

I would like to repent for all my sins because I know there's gonna be hell out there. I will make friends to those I hate. And forgive the people who hurt me. I would like to be a good friend and good family member. and lastly I would like to connect with my creator.

I wish my country should be in good position. i don't want to see any poors in my country. Every body should be able to survive their life without any problem. It's difficult but we can't leave as it is. If difficult means we have to face and we have to rectify that problem or difficult.

Before I die I want to travel the entire Philippines and the world. I want to do that with my husband and I want to learn at least how to drive. I want to fly, I will enjoy the rest of my days with my husband and my son. I want to see my family, relatives and old friends and tell them I love them, I owe them some chapter of my life and that I will ask forgiveness from those whom I've sinned. Anyway the last hour of my life will be spent with my husband because I want to see him before I close my eyes.

Well I do not have a long list of things to do before dying, The major thing I want to do is to repay all the loans I have taken from various agencies so that my family gets enough money to live comfortably. Another thing I feel I want to do is to live each and every second of my life meaningfully.

The number one on my list would be to earn plenty of money so I can set up something like a foundation or a program to help people get educated or perhaps to give livelihood.
