I Has a Bucket


Noooo! They be stealin' my bucket. For the longest time, my good friend Boy had the first half of this image series on one monitor and the second half on his other monitor. It never failed to make me laugh.

For some reason, this popped into my mind today and then made me think of bucket lists. If you're unfamiliar with the term, a "bucket list" is simply a list of things you want to do before you "kick the bucket."

I've been wanting to write up a bucket list for many years now, but as I mentioned the other day, I'm still trying to narrow down my passions, what motivates me, and what matters to me. That's an incredibly easy thing for some people, but I am not one of them. I remember feeling like a deer in headlights when I realized I would have to pick a college major and that there is no such thing as a career path that encompasses piano-playing, math, history, writing, and graphic design all in one job (especially since I would rather chop off my own limbs than become a teacher). Having multiple interests is fun, but choosing between them is definitely not.

Anyway, dear friends and strangers, what are some things you have on your bucket list? Have you done anything from that list yet? Do you plan to accomplish anything from the list in the next year?

If you have a bucket list (or something similar) posted somewhere online, leave the link in the comments because I'm dying for ideas and inspiration, and oh yeah, I'm just really stinkin' curious.
