    From the movie of the same name, a bucket list became the list of things one wants to do before s/he kicks the bucket (so to say)...I thought it would be interesting to see what others have on their lists;

    Mine is as follows in no order of importance:

    1. go to Thailand
    2. meet several cyber friends in person
    3. meet HH The Dali Lama
    4. do a duet with a dear friend of mine (her idea which she shared several nights ago)
    5. help this friend prepare to audition for The Voice (wish I could do it myself, but my body would not hold up)
    6. finally get my guitar playing to not sound like ducks in heat
    7. finish and have published my book of poetry, and a children's book that I have yet to start
    8. finish a diagnostic tool that I have started a few months ago
    9. start working in watercolors again
    10. finish my Masters Degree in IT management (only a few credits so far)
    11. get as far as possible on my Six Sigma certification

    Hoping all of you get many things on your list done!

    Heh… not that this is relevant, but I started one over ten years ago and quickly became addicted-- unfortunately now I have no idea how to get rid of them.

    And recording an album is actually really easy-- just download some free recording software, get a Blue Snowball and then maybe a used keyboard at a yard sale, and you're pretty much ready to go. I've made about four albums now, mostly while sitting on my bed.

    Well I have never really thought about things I want to do before I die, but just sat and thought for quite some time, and could only think of a very select few that I think I would want more than anything to do/ be able to do.

    1. Learn to love myself
    2. Have more confidence/ improve confidence, self esteem etc
    3. Learn a foreign language
    4. Have enough courage and confidence to sing (whether it be at a karaoke, or what, I used to love singing but I can never sing in front of people)
    5. Travel the world.
    6. Get some poetry published or write a book. (this one will most likely never be done, I cant write to save my own life, *shakes fist and curses dyslexia*

    So really nothing major, or special, I do hope eventually I can accomplish 3 out of those 6... If not more.

    To be me till whatever comes, and still be me through that for as long as who I am can, and then strive to be me when I cant. The end is inevitable, it'll come how it comes. Not at my hands... not unless it is my direction.
