Bucket List

I haven't seen this movie yet, but I think it's finally at RedBox so I'm sure we'll see it soon. For some reason I was thinking about it, about the whole "bucket list" idea. What things do I want to do before I "kick it"? I don't really know. I started thinking- it's going to be hard to do amazing things in my life if I don't have an idea of what amazing things I want to do. Not sure if that makes sense, but I usually live my life in a "fly by the seat of my pants" kind of way. I don't make life plans. I take it as it comes. Which I believe is good to a point- but I've decided I want a plan. A list. A set of goals to accomplish. There is no way for me to think of all the things I want to do in one day, so I've decided I will update this list from time to time as I think of new things. Please share your lists, goals, and ideas. I'm interested to see what others want to do.

The List ( in no particular order)
1. Have a family (truly the only one I've known my whole life I wanted to do)
2. Mission in Africa
3. See the Great Wall of China
4. Hold a monkey (I'm a kid apparently)
5. swim with dolphins
6. See the Northern Lights
7. Stay in an Ice Hotel in Sweden
8.Learn to play an instrument
9. See Israel
10. Adopt a child
11. Visit the Louvre
12. Visit all 7 continents
13. Learn to like exercise
14. Learn photography
15. Paint a mural- that I like
16. Deep sea fishing
17. Learn Spanish fluently plus one other language
18. Learn how to sew
19. Stomp grapes at a vineyard (like in A Walk in the Clouds..)
20. Become completely selfless (hey, this is a wish list!)

One thing to do AFTER I die: Be an organ donor & save someone's life! Incredible!

Can you teach me how after you learn to like exercise???? Way to go, organ donor. Can I have a kidney? You could do that before you die ;)
