My Bucket List

When I turned 30, I got my arm inked. It’s something I wanted to do for years, but wasn’t brave enough. Now it’s 80% done, I’m so pleased and proud that I did it!

It’s made me think though, what else is on the to-do list? Why don’t I get stuck in?

So here it is: My unfinished, ever-growing Bucket List.

  • Buy a piece of art that makes my toes curl with happiness.
  • Go on a cruise through theĀ Mediterranean.
  • New York needs it’s own list: Enjoy a bagel in Central Park, re-enact Sleepless In Seattle up the Empire State, visit Tiffany’s, see the Statue of Liberty, get my photo taken with bad-ass homies, eat New York pizza, catch a Broadway show, NYE in Times Square.
  • Wee on the Hollywood sign.
  • Meet Midget Elvis in Vegas.
  • Mardi Gras in New Orleans, yo!
  • Marry my best friend.
  • Learn to play guitar. Properly. Rock out.
  • Befriend an old person. Make their life magical.
  • Sort my fingernails out.
  • Introduce a child to Pop Rocks. Video them. Put it on YouTube. Get 100,000 views.
  • Pompeii.
  • Ride a mechanical bull.
  • Shave my head.
  • Help to make someone else’s dream come true.
  • Acquire a set of Crown Lynn pink polkadot plates like my grandmother had.
  • Send a postsecret in to postsecret

Some awesome things I’ve already done:

  • Drunk a pint in a tiny Irish pub, goaded on by tiny Irish men.
  • Made it into The Sun for ‘stalking’ a pop singer. Long story.
  • Visited [the outside of] Anne Frank’s house.
  • Reverse bungy. Didn’t lose my lunch.
  • Taken a rickshaw through Singapore.
  • Loved and lost.
  • Full arm tattooooooooooo!
  • Gone 230km/h in a car.
  • Been on TV in at least four countries.
  • Ridden the London Eye.
  • Pole danced while eating fried chicken.

So… Suggestions for what I might add?

  1. Ring the fire alarm in a building. I’ve decided if I get to be 80 years old and I still haven’t done it, I’m going to “ring and run” (or motor scooter-it as may be the case).

  2. poor old people. to live their whole life not realising that if they only had their own 30 yr old friend, their life would be magical..
