before I die

I've always had a mental bucket list, but I've never taken the time to write it down. Over the past few days, I've formulated a concrete list of all the things I want to do before I die. A good deal of them have to do with traveling (what can I say, the world is a vast, beautiful place.) and I may or may not have completing a bucket list on my bucket list (ironic much?).

There's so much I can do with my life it makes me dizzy with wonder...

While we're on the subject of doing things, I wanted to share this quote I came across the other day, in response to youth who complain about not knowing what to do.
"Go home, mow the lawn, wash the windows, learn to cook, build a raft, get a job, visit the sick, study your lessons, and after you've finished, read a book. Your town does not owe you recreational facilities and your parents do not owe you fun. The world does not owe you a living, you owe the world something. You owe it your time, energy, and talent so that no one will be at war, in sickness, and lonely again. In other words grow up, stop being a cry baby, get out of your dream world and develop a backbone not a wishbone. Start behaving like a responsible person. You are important and you are needed. It's too late to sit around and wait for somebody to do something someday. Someday is now and that somebody is you!" --John Tapene

What's on your bucket list? I'd love to hear what you want to accomplish with your life!
