Bucket List

Bucket lists are funny things; each bullet is like a goal but lacks any sort of plan that leads to achievement. Unlike a goal list, a bucket list serves as a list of things it would be cool to do but require more effort than I really want to put in.

I haven’t ever created my own list of things I’m too lazy to actually work for, so I thought I’d make one and share it for anyone to see.

  1. Set foot on all 7 continents, including Antarctica
  2. See the Wonders of the World, Ancient, New, and Natural
  3. Attend a live episode of “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me”
  4. Watch a baseball game in every MLB ballpark
  5. Learn Mandarin
  6. Learn Morse Code
  7. Receive an honorary doctorate
  8. Break a world record
  9. Run the Boston Marathon
  10. Hike the Pacific Crest Trail
  11. Climb Mount Everest
  12. Travel to space
  13. Learn or invent the perfect gumbo recipe
