Bucket List

We all have a great many things we want to do in Life, general chores seem the most important and they are easily remembered and get done promptly, the activities that are really important to us but the least important in a day to day basis tend to get forgotten until we are about to do them. I like to believe that by writing mine down I’m making it more likely I’ll try to make them happen rather than let them happen.

I’m not setting any particular time frame, or if I do its because I expect the goal post to change and I want a clearly defined target.

The idea behind unfinished, unordered list of things I want to accomplish is based on the film of the same name.
