My ever changing bucket list.

I’ve been meaning to publish this page about my bucket list for a long time (so long that I’ve crossed things off of the list already), so today I thought “why not just do it, rather than think about doing it?”. I’m terrible for doing that, I would say that I’m very much a ‘think before you act‘ kind of person, and sometimes I do tend to overthink things…a lot, sometimes to the point that I go off of the idea completely. I’m sure that I’m not the only person whom this happens to, am I? There must be more over-thinkers out there, are you one of them?

Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't simply try to do things. You simply must do things. - Ray Bradbury

So anyway, I’m going to try not to ramble on and just get on with it (I’m discovering that I seem to have a talent for procrastination), this page will probably change a lot because I’m planning on crossing items off of my list as I complete them, and adding more as I find them…so I guess I should prepare for a life of adventures here and there! I may even add a photo gallery of completed items to this page, for the applicable ones of course.

Feel free to nab anything off of here and add it to your own, but I will ask that if you do then comment and let me know which one(s) you have also chosen as I’m interested in finding out about what other people want to do with their lives. Or link me to your bucket list page. Have fun!

I’m also going to add some of my ‘couples bucket list’ onto here with its own page, stuff I want to do with my girlfriend. If you want to have a gander at that then click here.
