To Do Before Death.

The title says it all, folks. Behold: a list of all the things I want to do before I die. Also commonly called a bucket list. Therefore, I present to you: my bucket list. And now you're bored and want to read the list so without further ado, here it is.

(Side note: This list is ALWAYS in progress, so be sure to check back every once in awhile for new additions!)

(Another side note: I am fully aware that some (most) of these things will probably never happen. I'm really not crazy. I promise.)

(Last side note, I promise: Some of the ones that have been completed have a link you can click on to read about the experience. In case you're curious.)

    1. I never got this comment...haha, I just now saw it when I remembered this post and went to go see if there was anything I could cross off. :-)

  8. AAAH!!! Eponine is on my bucket list too!! (though I think I'm probably getting a bit old for it now?) If you're serious about washing your hair in the rain, I will tell you I did that when we were living in the village for five weeks ... it was the only time I felt clean! SOOOOO, when you finish your student teaching, we'd love it if you would entertain the idea of coming to PNG and teaching our amazing MKs!! I happen to know the vice principal of the primary school quite well and would be happy to get you more information. ;) Then maybe you could wash your hair in the rain ... and we could get you further for #2, accomplish #11, have a great opportunity to do #24, and most definitely accomplish #50 .... oh, so much potential! :D

    1. Oh my gosh Mrs. Bowers I love you! You are cracking me up! :-)


Thanks for commenting! I always love hearing your thoughts. :-)
