Why You Should Have a Bucket List


           I’ve had a bucket list since sometime in High School.  I have always liked the idea of keeping track of my life goals.  I am a huge list-maker.  I am definitely the type of person that loves to have diverse experiences too.  I feel like having a list just helps you to stay on track for accomplishing as much as you can in life.  It kind of ensures that you have fun and do what you love to do.  If you are bored or you have a birthday coming up it’s nice to have a list that you can look at to accomplish something you really want to do.  I am always looking at it, trying to think of ways to check another thing off.  On the flip side, I know a lot of the things on my list may not be realistic so I won’t be too sad if I never accomplish them.  It just helps me to strive to live a good and fun life.  I am always adding to my list because I always think of things.  Or as I age, the things I want in life change a little bit too.  I think that’s okay.  When I accomplish something I check it off instead of deleting it because it’s more satisfying to look back at.  Also, I must add that there are tons of places that I want to visit and things I want to see and do but I don’t add them to my list because it would be way too long.  I just add the most significant ones.  Here is my list so far:
