My Life List

Wow, it’s 2011.  How did we get here so fast??  Rather than jotting down my resolution for 2011, I wanted to work on my list of things I want to do/accomplish before I die.

I was inspired to come up with my “Life List” by my friend Ali, based on one of her recent blog posts. I’ve decided to put down in ‘writing’ my jumbled mental list of things that I’ve added to it over the years, but it’s nice to focus and really document them.  I included some of my completed items, as I’d like to keep track of them, but I’ve added a few more – just for kicks. 🙂  Who knows, maybe I’ll even blog about some of the experiences to aide in my ‘blog once a week for a year’ goal. 🙂

There’s a chance that I’ll add to the list as the years go on, but for now this is where I stand:

  1. Study abroad
  2. Graduate from college with a useful degree (yep, I felt this one was really important)
  3. Find a job that I love (2 for 3!)
  4. Adopt a shelter cat
  5. Go skydiving
  6. Snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef
  7. See an opera in the Sydney Opera House
  8. Get married
  9. Attend a rodeo
  10. Take a picture with a Canadian mounty
  11. See Bob Barker in a taping of The Price is Right

  12. Take a surf lesson
  13. Ring in a new year in the Sydney Harbour
  14. Procreate: Have one child, maybe two.
  15. Climb the Great Wall of China
  16. Visit the Great Pyramids/Sphinx in Egypt
  17. Ride the London Eye
  18. Take a ride on a boat to see Niagara Falls
  19. Enjoy a pasta dish in Italy
  20. Kiss (or touch) the Blarney Stone in Ireland
  21. Wear a kilt in Scotland
  22. Be an extra in a movie
  23. Be a contestant on Wheel of Fortune
  24. Go bungee jumping in New Zealand
  25. Go topless on a topless beach
  26. Go on a safari in South Africa
  27. Buy a house
  28. Witness the Aurora Borealis
  29. Live in another country for a year
  30. Mile High Club
  31. Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge
  32. See Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower
  33. Visit all 7 continents
  34. Blog once a week for an entire year
  35. Take my mom out of the country for the first time
  36. Run a half-marathon

Do you have a list? What are the top 5 things you want to do before you die?  I’d love to hear them!

    You’ve just convinced me that I must write a list of my own. Many on your list will find their way to my list too! Happy New Year Amy!

      This comment got mixed in with the spam comments so I’m just now seeing it. I definitely think you should put together a list and share it! 🙂

    Amy! You better not try to do #30 young lady!

    I’m so embarrassed. I did NOT do a good job raising you.

      Haha! 🙂 I’ll never tell when, where, or how – but it will remain on the list! 🙂
