Make your own bucket list

Has anyone here watched the movie Bucket List? It's one of those movies which makes you think what you really want to do before you die. What's your own bucket list? I want to visit Japan in spring and see the cherry blossoms. I want to dance tango (this is hard because I can't dance). I want to visit Antarctica and see the penguins. I want to love. I want to be forgiven. On another note, Tuesdays with Morrie is also a nice book about living life to the fullest.

My own bucket list? It's not as extreme as those in the movie but yeah, I just started thinking about my own list after I've watched it. Here's mine: - visit Paris - go scuba diving - go sky diving - give to charity - go on a cruise - eat exotic food (i'ma try this) Okay, that's about it for now. I really can't think of anything else yet. And oh, I agree with you about Tuesdays with Morrie. I love that book.

haha! nice bucket list. But it seems really expensive! I have another question: what are you going to do if you only have 10 dollars to your name?

LOL. Well, I guess that reveals to us that bucket lists cost a lot. :P

I'm fond of watching movies but nowadays, I can't give in to this personal pleasure because of two reasons. First, prices of commodities are significantly increasing (including movie tickets) while salaries and wages of people remain constant. Second, I really don't have the luxury of time to do everything I want to do. I'm a married woman with one lovely two-year old daughter. And I'd rather spend "quality time" with my own family (daughter and husband) during my free time. Anyway, regarding the bucket list you've posted; I guess I do have a personal list myself. I want to acquire a large sum of money legally either by saving/working hard for it or thru winning the local lottery grand prize. After getting my monetary prize, I'll be allocating it to purchase our family's own house and lot, furnitures, appliances, and cellular phones. Then, I'll be putting up a family business where we will employ mostly out-of-school youths and less fortunate relatives. Naturally, I'll be giving some to our relatives (mine and my husband's). And I'll also be saving up some of it for our daughter's education and her savings, too.

You're a very practical person and that's ok. I especially liked the fact that you think of others. :D

That's good! Hope you're well. Btw, I like your list. My favorite is "be a nun for a week". In my case though, I'd like to be a Jesuit priest. Jesuit priests move the heart. :D

I have had a bucket list for quite some time. Lets see: 1. I want to be a published writer I have had a few things published but nothing major and in a well known magazine. 2. To come into a large sum of money 3. To take my son and family to Disney World 4. To have my own business someday 5. To travel to someplace exotic 6. To ride on a motorcycle 7. To learn how to rollerskate (have tried in the past but need somebody with patience to teach me) 8. Since I have done alot of traveling I would like to show my son, mother, brother and stepdad some different places like Niagra Falls.
