It's My Life - My Bucket List

I've occasionally seen things online or heard things that others have done and thought, 'I'd quite like to do that' but I have never sat down and actually thought about what I would like to accomplish in life before I die.
Watching Karl Pilkington in the second series of  'An Idiot Abroad' was a great insight to some of the things people consider to be a once in a lifetime experience also proving that what one person may find a thrill, another finds a horror.
Bare in mind I am only 21 and should have many years left to do whatever it is I come up with, here is my list:

1 - Skydive. [DONE!]
(Starting off with something I already have booked and will most defiantly be able to check off my list. Originally it was a 21st birthday treat from my Dad. The training was attended and I was hyped to jump but 3 times due to high winds it was cancelled. :( Sad times. I’m hoping to get it done in the next couple months though, especially with the weather getting better! Check out my Just Giving page for sponsorship details as I aim to raise as much money as possible for the amazing Ape rescue center, Monkey World, in Dorset.)

2 - Go to every Disney resort in the world. 1 down. 5 to go. 

3 - (To the displeasure of my Mother) Get many more tattoos.
4 - Own my dream farmhouse in the south west countryside.
5 - Raise and Train a Border Collie as well as my Granda did.
6 - (To the displeasure of my other half) Become reasonably fluent in another language. Spanish or Portuguese, preferably.
7- Compete in a Jiu Jitsu tournament.
8 - Learn to Skateboard. I have the best teacher!

9 - Ride a horse.
10 - Go on a super long road trip.
11 - Travel to all 7 continents.
12 - Eventually overcome my dislike of children crying/ making unnecessary noise and have one of my own.
13 - Be the best housewife ever. 
14 - Stay alcohol free for the rest of my life.
15 - Learn to cook properly.
16 - Work on a farm driving a tractor/combine harvester.
17 - Become semi self-sufficient. Solar/wind power, grow own food etc.
18 - Go on a Snowboarding holiday, staying in a log cabin. In Canada.
19 - Get back into a good fitness routine.
20 - Find out alot more about my family tree, as far back as I can.
21 - Walk over hot coals.
22 - Visit the Playboy Mansion.
23 - Attend a UFC event in Las Vegas.

24 – Survive a Zombie infestation.
25 – Do all the popular outdoor activities. Eg. Zorbing, Paintball, Rock Climbing.
26 – See beautiful wild animals in their natural habitat on an African Safari.
27 – Have a room in my house completely ‘floored’ and ‘wallpapered’ with mattresses and filled with pillows so I can literally dive into bed.
28 – Be an extra in a film. 
29 – Feed a Lamb.
30 – Drive a Bugatti Veyron.
31 – Get a reading from a physic medium.
32 – Buy and rent out property.
33 – Go on a proper camping trip, complete with campfire and ghost stories.
34 – Make a friend...
35 – Have a ‘Lost’ style experience on a desert island. (Maybe minus the actual plane crash though.)
36 – Get better skin.
37 – Climb a massive tree.
38 – Overcome a fear. But not my one of butterflies ‘cause I think they’re pointless anyways.
39 – Win. At something. Anything. Preferably the lottery...
40 – Meet a real life pirate.
41 – Make my own homemade ice cream and bread.
42 – Visit the Harry Potter attraction seeing as I’m too old for my letter inviting me to join Hogwarts to arrive now.
43 – Stay with that one special person forever.
44 – Fire a gun.
45 – See Animal Testing abolished completely worldwide. [Sign the Lush petition here!]
46 – Get my teeth straightened.
47 – Keep updating this blog regularly with interesting posts.
48 – Photograph an MMA event and have my photographs published or be employed by the UFC.

49 – Stay overnight in a haunted house.
50 – Donate a considerable amount and/or help with animal charities.

Phew! There we have it. It only took me around 36 hours but I have finally completed my bucket list. Admittedly there a few ‘silly’ additions to build it up to the big 50…
Have you got a bucket list? Or considered writing one? If you haven’t, I highly recommend it. If you have, I’d love to read them so please share in the comments!  (They are open to the public to comment even if you don't follow this blog) Thanks for reading and I hope my list inspires you J

    1. Great list! There are a few on there I like and I'd really like to do as well (14, 26, 42 etc). I can't wait to go to Disneyland as well, happening next summer hopefully!! Good luck/have fun completing it.
