Reposting My Life List Here


Since there is a chance that Tumblr may not be around forevs, I figured I would snatch up my name here on WordPress and add my life list here too.

I have been working on my Life List lately. You know, the list of things I want to do before I die. I hate the term bucket list. It’s stupid and I don’t really care for buckets anyway… why not a bowl list – I mean, they also say life is a bowl of cherries, yea? (But that’s a silly saying too) Or why is it not called a paint can list? I don’t know about you but I don’t EVER plan on kicking any bucket. My death will involve a blaze of glory, me all pissed off, yelling and lots of explosions. That’s a fact.

Anyway, I am starting my list and have decided it should be at least 100 items long. The below list is not at a 100 – yet, but hey! I just started! I am putting my list out here on the internet in order to keep myself honest as well as document stuff as I accomplish it. I may not be able to get an achievement unlocked noise when I do it in real life, but posting it to my blog will have to be good enough.

Here is the beginning of my list:
