Looking for Adventure

adventure.png

When I was younger, I feel like I made all these plans of places I would go, things I would see, stuff I would do. A bucket list full of adventures, unforgettable memories, and traditional milestones that seemed so far away at the age of twelve. Honestly, the one I made in seventh grade was boarder-line insane (I wanted to slap P. Diddy because he was so arrogant), but I miss that type of excitement I had for my future and the goals that I set for myself. Sadly, my bucket list lately has been limited lately to find job, find somewhere to live, be a functioning human being. So today in true blogger-fashion, I am going to rekindle my excitement for the future and form a new bucket-list. I wanted to make a list of fifty, but I didn’t want to add things simply for the sake of adding items to a list. The forty-ish things I have below I am invested in and I am excited about. Hopefully this list can continue to grow (and shrink because I’m actually out here doing stuff). What are some of your top bucket list items?

THE LIST

  1. Travel Travel Travel: Morocco, Italy, Thailand, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Egypt, Zambia, Malawi, Bulgaria, Greece, Spain, Fiji, Indonesia, Cuba, Denmark, Istanbul, Portugal, (I’m pretty open to any and everywhere but these are the places that stick out to me the most at the moment
  2. Work abroad for about a year or so (no particular area, but still in the same field of study)
  3. Learn to swim

    1. I didn’t mean to hit reply… I wasn’t done!!
      I admire your list!! I’m not that adventurous. I tend to stay in a comfort zone! I rodeo (barrel race) and not sure how I’ve managed, it’s a tough sport! But that’s about as exciting and adventurous as I get!!
      Enjoyed reading this! Hope to see an update when you check things off!

      1. Thank you! I felt inspired to write a new bucket list because I miss dreaming big about the future like I did when I was a kid. I’m not that adventurous either (I can barely do roller coasters), but a few things on here I want to try at least once. I could NEVER do sky diving though or anything that is a big adrenaline rush lol
