We all have something that we have really want to do or to happen before we die, and sometimes we actually get around to doing them. So what did you achieve from your Bucket List already?
Share your stories below and include an image if needed.
I went back to school as a single mother and finished my college degree 🎓
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 won a watermelon eating contest. Yup not inspiring but hey I won something!
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.
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
going to china for the first time!!!! 3 years ago when i was seven, all my relatives live there so i was really happy to see them
Grow my own vegetables. Simple, but really fun and feels like an accomplishment.
I have swam with stingrays in the wild. Was so awesome, especially coz their were quite a few.
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
Going to Peru and Maccu Picchu has been on my bucket list for years. I finally went last summer and it was TOTALLY worth it.
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.
Never knew I needed it on my list but was handed the opportunity to sky dive and I did. Absolutely amazing, would do it again! (They also gave me a shirt and certificate after the dive)
I dreamed of going to Scotland. Ended up living there for three years. Horrible job, lovely country and people. Moved back to Scandinavia, but I miss Scotland A LOT
1. Raise and train a horse
2. Drive a NASCAR (18 laps at Fontana Speedway. I hit 146mph!)
At 52, purchased my 1st home without any assistance from friends for family.
Traveled to Europe and the Caribbean several times but still would like to go back to Europe when the Pandemic is over so I guess in about 2-3 years.
I always wanted to go bungy jumping so when I turned 19 my best friend at the time shouted me. I loved it that I have 2 jumps under my belt ready for my next one.
Went to see one of my favourite bands within temptation, even though I have severe social anxiety and claustrophobia, was worth it though and I'd do it again :)
I went diving in the Galapagos Islands. Simply amazing, both below and above water!!!
Starting to make comics to share to the world! Hopefully will start to share them in August!
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.👵🐄🐟
Stick my head out of a car's sunroof.
Become a truck driver. Drove for nearly 20 years. Been all over the Lower 48 and a great deal of Canada. Loved it!
Next on my list: bicycle across the U.S in 2021
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 (it was fantastic)
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 accomplished scaling up 69 ft high cliff without harness or rope than jumped off it doing 3 1/2 front flips into a dive
I finally just bought my first house, and it's a brand new build we close in sept. I'll be 39 next month....
i´m 39 now and i never lost my inner child.
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
This isn't much compared to what everyone else is saying, but I have beaten quite a few guys up hills when biking - all of them bigger than me! (I'm not even 5 feet tall) and most of them have lighter bikes than me, seeing as how I only recently changes to a hybrid bike have rode a mountain bike for over a year before than!
Really simple, but hang out with friends at the movies. Did it for my sixteenth birthday and had fun. Wouldn't trade anything in the world for that time.
I saw the entirety of Wagner's Tonight Cycle (multiple operas) live!
