I don't have a traditional "Bucket List" because I have time table anxiety and I get panic attacks when I have to plan things 3 days in advance, so the idea of making a whole list of things I have to do before I die will ensure I just stay in my room watching bad reality TV on Netflix for the rest of my years. However, I do constantly add/deduct from a set of reasonable and unreasonable goal posts for each of my age brackets. I guess breaking the Bucket List up into 10 year chunks is just easier for me to process (it also makes procrastinating on Living My Life a breeze).
Growing up, I always thought 30 was the age where I'd officially be an adult. Like, have a mortgage, settled down with life partner, established in my fabulous career type of adult. Buuuut, I'm 29 and I'm not there yet. Clearly. And while I have achieved most of the traditional
Henceforth, the remains of My 20's Bucket List:
1. Go blonde
2. Travel by myself in a foreign country where I don't speak the language
3. Live by myself
4. Learn how to mix killer cocktails
5. Perform routine maintenance on my car by myself (i.e. no more depending on the Oil Change Fairy, aka Dad)
6. Learn how to use my credit card only in a life or death emergency situation
7. Fully realize that "life or death emergency situation" does not mean trips to the salon, impulsive travel, sales at Anthropologie, etc.
8. Write second novella.
9. Develop a functional wardrobe
10. Pull off [successful] Bank heist
11. Acquire Pulitzer prize
ok, so maybe those last 3 are pipe dreams. And I'm really, really close to checking most of these off my bucket list in the next 3 months (wow that was a lot of 3's in one sentence).
What's on your age-bracket-bucket list?
