My Bucket List

Things I want to do before I kick the damn bucket.

I know I don’t look like it, but I love thrill. I love those situations that stimulate great fear in me. I love to feel a certain thin cold sweat trickle down my spine, beads of sweat forming on my forehead and my heart throbbing inside my chest with violence like a mad untamed cat. You know those moments of uncertainty when your stomach just feels bloated and full of water, those are the moments I am talking about.

As at today, I have achieved very few of those described situations and if I have any, they were not the once I long for. To remind myself of these things, I decided to then create a bucket list.

A bucket list is a bucket with a list of things that you wants to achieve/experience in the near or far future, but before you die – kick the same bucket. When I look at my bucket list, it should remind me to try and achieve at least 70% of it’s content. This means it should motivate me to work towards striking through the items one after the other.

So, things that my heart yearns to do before my leg kicks the same damn bucket and spills it’s contents are following:
