The Bucket List

I love the idea of creating a bucket list. Giving myself a list of things I wish to accomplish at some point in my life would probably help me in living my life to the fullest. However, the one thing I hate is the idea of giving myself a designated amount of time to complete my list; to hell with that! First of all, I'm terrible (apparently) at meeting timelines and secondly, what happens after that due date comes and goes, is that it? Do I cease to exist? Do I stop living? Do I suddenly live a monotonous life with nothing exciting happening? To hell with that. I think of my bucket list as a sort of Tardis. Yes, I just referenced Doctor Who. My bucket list continues infinitely, it grows, it expands, it's somewhat endless and it's mine; I can do what I wish with it as I see fit.

Things I wish to do in my lifetime:
