My Bucket List

Yes, I’m aware that I don’t look like I fancy thrill but I do. I love terror. I love those moments that I regret ever getting myself into. And that is why I have a bucket list. It is blue in colour and plastic. In it are things I would want to do before I die. And death is certain. As certain as the fact that you have used a bucket at least six hundred and ninety eight times in your life. But whether or not I will manage to remove these items from my bucket before I kick it is uncertain.

When I look inside my blue plastic bucket, it should remind me to try and achieve at least 70% of the things therein. It should motivate me to work towards emptying it. And so, if you so wish, take a peep inside my blue plastic bucket:-

I know some of you are learned and are against plastics, but if you walk down Jogoo road you will be able to buy a metal bucket. So you have no excuse for not having a bucket list, and even worse, for not ticking at least 3 items off that list.


NOTE: My bucket fills and reduces based on daily life occurrences.
