Un-Bucket List

I know there is a movie (I have never seen) about a bucket list. I read plenty of posts about completing bucket lists. I have written my own lists of 5 year plans and goals. The thing is I try to do things I want to do rather than focus on what I haven’t done. So when I came across a blog post with a bunch of crossed off bucket list entries I thought why not an un-bucket list. Yep, a list that lists the things that some people would put on a bucket list, but I have already done. Let’s see how this idea works out.

UnBucket List:

Stay up all night and watch the sunrise.
Hike a mountain in New Mexico.
Ride an elephant.
Ride a camel.
Go on a cruise.
White water rafting.
Visit Washington DC.
Visit New Orleans.
Visit NYC.
Get CPR certified.
Visit another country.
Buy my dream car.
Complete a degree.
Find my soul mate.
Drive cross country.
Buy a house.
Go camping in a tent.
Write a script. 
Go to blueberry festival.
