15 Things To Do Before You Kick The Bucket

 Whenever I see bucket lists, I always wonder why the 'bucket'? Do you need a bucket to complete all the things on the list? Do you pick what you want to do out of a bucket like picking out of a hat? Or does someone just really like buckets.. As any self respecting 21st century girl would do - I googled it.
The English idiom 'to kick the bucket' means 'to die' - and there you go, a pretty self explanatory way of explaining why bucket lists are things to do before you die, and now I know. And since we are on the topic here's mine.

1. Save a life - this might sound a little cliché, and I'm not trying to sound like a hero obviously but being a student nurse it's kind of in the job description at some point in my career..

2. See all 7 continents, all 7 wonders of the world and all 50 states - long shot, but travel, travel travel!

3. Make a giant slip and slide - they look incredible in my opinion

4. Get a tattoo - a small one (sorry mum!)

5. Run a half marathon, or a colour run or something to that effect - start off small right?

6. Stay in a tree house in a forest somewhere

7. Learn to drive - hopefully will achieve this in the summer, fingers crossed 

8. Learn to play the piano - I have a keyboard... the rest is easy right?

9. Donate blood often - because of my height I couldn't give blood until I was 20, so now I am, I will do it often as I can

10. Witness a White Christmas - snow is my favourite thing, so of course it's on my list

11. Get to 10,000 views on my blog

12. Get a job on a Paediatric Cardiology Unit - a childhood dream, if a lame one

13. Be a good cook - I've said this before.. I'm not great 

14. Own a horse or two - another childhood dream ofc has to be included here

15. Raise a lot of money for a charity - like GOSH or UNICEF

Some are big, some are small, all of them will happen hopefully! Let me know what's on your bucket list :)

Happy reading!
