Day 124: The Bucket List

by ashleighpenrod

I’ve never made a bucket list before. Now seems like a good time.

  1. Make an extraordinarily good meal from scratch, only out of things I grew myself.
  2. Give up cheddar cheese for one week (could coincide with #1, since I don’t know how to grow cheddar).
  3. Get a tattoo.
  4. Get the tattoo removed.
  5. Find a place where there’s no man-made noise—no cars, machines, airplanes, phones, kids, etc., and just listen.
  6. Name a cat The Freshmaker. It doesn’t have to be my cat.
  7. Learn a foreign language or truly revive that high school French.
  8. Make a grand gesture to the planet that somehow makes it better.
  9. Pay off my credit card (figuring this is a good before-I-die goal).
  10. Teach a kid something really, really cool.
  11. Come up with some better and/or more specific long-term goals.
  12. Finish Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid.
  13. Meet Oliver Sacks.
  14. Watch the sunrise.
  15. Get up before the sunrise in order to watch it live.
  16. Smile and remember.

That’s all for now. What’s on your bucket list?
