I was told I could never walk again after an accident back in 2013. After a long time and a lot of hard work, I took my first steps July 2017 with walking aids. Now I walk a 4 day walking experience, 2.5 km per day (called avond 4 daagse in the Netherlands). Def won the bet with my doc's.

My biggest bucket list goal (as I have many items on the list!) was to travel to all seven continents. That's right, including Antarctica! It took a lot of scrimping and saving, but over the course of 10 years I managed to get to all the continents! I hope that post-pandemic, travel will be more environmentally sustainable, as it has definitely helped me appreciate the beauty of the world and what we, as humans, need to do to conserve it.

I read that as "I've visited the 7 continents like I wanted, now let's impose travel bans for the good of the planet"...

I became a scuba diver, graduated from college, and earned a 2nd degree black belt. Now I'm working on fighting depression and insomnia. That will be my greatest achievement so far.

Congratulations on your accomplishments! Re depression and insomnia -- you'll have good days and bad, but gradually, you'll have more and more good days. Recovery is not a goal, but a process. Good luck! :-)

1. Bought a couple of my dream cars. Felt a lot less satisfying than the years of idolizing prepared me for. Sold and learned an expensive lesson about setting my life around posessions.
2. Traveled to Bhutan and returned with eternally valuable memories, lessons, perspectives and friends.
3. Supported a children's education charity abroad after learning about it in international news.

My advice: Check off your bucket list one achievable step at a time, and it may help you rewrite a better bucket list.

I'd always get an 'aww...that's so cute' pat on the head when I (starting around age 4) told grownups "I'm going to grow up and teach in Africa!".

Well,guess what, head-patters? I sure as sh*t did it and it's not 'cute' - it's hard work and frickin' amazing!

Lesson: never doubt the stubbornness of a child

I finally finished my song on the violin before sixth grade! The song is called "romance in f major" by Beethoven. I swear this is what Beethoven was thinking while writing this song-"I paid for the whole violin, so I'm using the whole violin." :D

Besides marrying Daniel Radcliffe I don't really have a bucket list, but I'm really happy that these things happened:
1. Met Donald Sutherland
2. Seen Aerosmith & Run-DMC perform "Walk this Way" live
3. Seen Lenny Kravitz live
4. Received recognition from the Senator for being a Pillar of Character in the Community
5. Raised a human being to adulthood (it was a little touch and go...especially after that attitude started)
6. Finally graduating college after becoming a single parent at 19

After having rabbits, a turtle, and a snail, I really wanted a cat. But, I was allergic to them, so I wasn't sure if it was ever going to happen. I became a cat parent in 2016, and again in 2017. I love my girls, and I take my allergy medication religiously.

I was born and raised in Texas. I moved with my family to Colorado 28 years ago. I'm getting on in years, and I had a desire to move back to Texas some day. I realised that dream in May of this year. I now live in a small community next to a lake. I'm enjoying my retirement in a quiet country setting.👵🐄🐟

Three years after our wedding we had finally saved enough to visit Iceland to see the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). Unfortunately, we didn't see the lights or the whales (we went whale watching) but did eat soup from a bowl made of bread. Cool.

Going to New York is my dream 16 years ago , because is New York City you can learning a lot. Example: I am from Asia ( I am not talking where from I am but Asia is my country 😔) , if I am And my kids walking, everybody say “Asia people Can not speak English and go back to your country “ . Or sometimes I going to Human Resources office because I am Asia nobody want explain with me what ever I speak English . And so funny what ever I am talking polite to always is looking me down . If I am joined Facebook too for ask help , they always say my grammar no good go back to your country , and somehow I can see they write because you grammar no good , will nobody hire you for working and if example I am to be teacher or paraprofessional I will no let my kids to be with her ( me ) . From this side I am some how think New York City is scary. And somehow I am think people living in New York is rude . I am understand no everyone like that but still almost I see , people living in New York is.

Have been fortunate enough to check a few major ones off my list... 1) Hike through Nepal to the summit of Annapurna 2) Travel across the Mongolian plateau on horse (and camel--not terribly fun) and 3) see Tibet and almost summit Mt Everest (I say almost because we could literally see it but were turned away due to bad weather).

I've always had a paralyzing fear of spiders. Well, I saw a kids educational program at my local theatre that had tarantulas, and when the kids cleared out, the program coordinator asked if I would like to hold one! It took me a few tries, but I eventually did, and it was AWFUL! But I did it, and even have a photo to remember it by! Smaller spiders still scare me, but not as much as they used to.

Travel abroad, for the first time. It happened when I was 20 years old. (I'm 21 years old now so it is still pretty fresh!) It was quite an exhilarating experience and very worth it. I guess the wait and all makes the memories that I made with my whole family super duper precious. My family have always been super busy since I was young so we didn't really get to go on a trip abroad together as a whole but finally, we did it! :D
