“Every man dies – Not every man really lives." - William Ross 

I couldn't sleep last night so I decided to create a list of goals, things I want to achieve, places I want to visit, fun things and stuff I've always wanted to do or try just for the hell of it... hence my own personal Bucket List. 

I also came across this site, Personal Excellence and they go more in depth of what a Bucket List is and why it is good to create one. 

Think of The Lox's song "24 hours to Live"...

If you had twenty four hours to live just think
Where would you go?
What would you do?...


I'm not saying you only have 24 hours but people tend to live their lives just working or living paycheck to paycheck and not taking a step back to think what it is they really want to do. We only get one life... make it count! After thinking of what you really want to do then the next step is actually doing it. Easier said than done.

I started off with ten items on my list then I kept adding on and adding on and before I knew it I had one long a** list... 92 things to be exact! 

One more thing, people often say 'don't judge me' right before they know they're about to say or do something to give people a reason to judge them.

So... don't judge me as you're reading some of these items, lol. Check mine out below, they're in no particular order and some of these I look forward to checking off really soon.

* UPDATE: Crossed of items = Completed!
