My Bucket List

Many, many times throughout this blog I have referred to ticking something off my bucket list. Finally, I decided to sit down a write out an actual list (divided into strange subcategories for apparent organization). I know I’m missing a million things, and everything is subject to change, but here is what I came up with. (A check mark for the ones I’ve completed) I’ll try to include a link to the things that I’ve written about.

If anyone has an idea of something I can add, I would ADORE the input!
