Bucketlist: What's on yours?

What's on yours? Bucket lists are lists people write of all the adventures, trips, and skills they want to accomplish or complete before they die. Climb a mountain, visit a volcano, skydive, get a tattoo, fall in love, go on a road trip...these are all common goals.

Ever since I saw the movie The Bucket List with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson I have wanted to create my own bucketlist. It's good to set yourself goals in life and be aware of how much you really can achieve and what exactly it is that you want to get out of life. I know that my number one goal is to simple: be happy.

As the saying goes, life isn't a dress rehearsal. You have to grab every moment and opportunity to do things you only dreamed of. A bucket list in years to come will also be fantastic experiences to share with your own children, your grandkids, and of course an unbeatable life experience to share with whoever you complete some of your bucket list goals with.

My passion in life is to travel and experience different cultures, food and music. I love to speak different languages, I speak Spanish and German on top of English and Irish. I have a lot of travel related things on my bucket list. I want to go to Machu Pichu in Peru and witness an entirely different civilization. I want to be spontaneous and:

I don't want to be one of those people who at the end of their lives are full of what ifs. I want to accomplish goals, pursue my dreams and not live a standard life of living to work. I would love to find my passion so I wouldn't have to call work, work! I think I am already combining them by studying makeup and journalism.

It's evident in my bucket list as two of my goals are as follows:

1. Get an article published in a newspaper or magazine.


2. Do a makeup course, which I am already doing and will have completed next March.

Something that I have always dreamed of since I ever imagined getting married would be to have fireworks at my wedding. I've always loved fireworks and I just think that they would be the most magical thing on the most special day of your life.
