My Bucket List

I recently looked through my old journal and found the bucket list I’d written years ago when I was 17… A big list of the things I most wanted to achieve before I die. It was cool to see what I’m now able to tick off, when at the time it was just a bunch of wild ideas. I’ve added some new things to this list and have removed some that are no longer important to me. Most of my bucket list is travel related but the latter part is more personal and I will continue to update this list as I go.
