Bucket List

Image made using the A Beautiful Mess app

Do you ever have that feeling that you just get up, go to work, come home, go to bed and repeat the same thing over and over? Well I’ve had that feeling several times and I hate it, so a few years ago I saw the movie The Bucket List with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman and thought the idea of a bucket list was brilliant. It was easily 5 years ago when I made my first Bucket List and I’ve realised over the years that it’s probably always going to change and evolve as I change and evolve. So the list will probably change but here it is as of now. I’ve crossed off the items I’ve already completed and I’ll write a post for each of them in the future.
