The non - movie Bucket List.

11:46 PM

My teenage dreams were washed away by the 2009 flood. That included tons of angry and romantic journals plus my treasured Bucket List. I still remember a few items from my list though, like kiss under the rain, win a nobel peace prize, get a tattoo... and other things I'm too embarrassed to mention. (Kiss a celebrity etc. :|)

Although this might all seem sad, I'm actually glad that it happened.

I probably saw life a whole lot differently then. The contents of my list would probably be things I wouldn't even want to do anymore or worse, is 90% filled with romantic items. :))

So now that I've changed, morphed a jillion times and have finally grown more accustomed to my own skin, I decided to take another shot at it.

So here's my Bucket List. They are arranged in no particular order. I also kept it at 50 items, just because I actually want to do all of these and not just die trying.

Here goes...

I say we go on a journey of crossing these out together.

  1. This is such a great idea! I definitely need to think about my own bucket list :)

  2. Hey Alexa!!! :D Goo, I'll wait for yours <3

  3. The Buddy bucket list! :) These are a must cause I want to go on an adventure with you:
    44 (Cause this will the best birthday party ever! Haha!), 43 (We can do this in Cebu or somewhere else in our country), 36 (We have to save up for this), 33, 24, 22, 19, 17 (with Elena!), 16 & 12(Help me face my fear of falling), 12, 11 (Pretty soon cause this is pretty near)

  4. Eks, I know. I Have to work on a piece :))

  5. I definitely agree with number 32. In fact, I have done it and there is no waste in it. We should be thankful that some people dare to teach Tango since people say it is really hard when you are not a native from Argentina, that the movements are sensual but complicated. Last year I travelled to the country and stayed in one of those Buenos Aires apartments because I wanted to learn how to dance. It was absolutely difficult but in the end I got it!

  6. Sama ako sa #50!

  7. I love your idea of #47. But your #1 is also my number 1. :) nice blog btw..two thumbs up to you ^_^
