Bucket List

“Life Begins at the End of your Comfort Zone.” -Neale Donald Walsch

Inspired by The Domestication Project, I decided to write a bucket list. As the Domesticated Gal said, most 29-year-olds write a list of things to do before they're 30, but like her, I am realistic. These are things I want to do before I die, presented in no particular order:

-Plant a vegetable garden, in the ground, and eat an entire meal from its harvest.
-Harvest enough of one thing to can something, even if it's just freezer jam.
-Visit a castle in Ireland. And in England.
-Parachute tandem with a US military skydiver (like the Golden Knights).
-Eat my way across Italy.
-Be a Bridesmaid for a friend. (I have been in family weddings)
-Be a Maid of Honor.
-Be a Bride. (Maybe my Groom will take me on that Italy trip!)
-Be a Mother.
-Ride in a limo.
-Pay off all my debt (car-done!, student loan next, then house mortgage).
-Learn a martial art.
-Celebrate hanami (cherry blossom viewing) in Japan.
-Participate in an Improv Everywhere event in New York City (and see the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, Times Square at dusk, and a Broadway show while I'm there...).
-Go on another cruise, not during hurricane season weather.
-Watch sea turtles hatch.
-Visit Disneyland in California.
-See Club 33. (this is the item on my list that I am least likely to be able to do)
-Tour backstage at Disneyland or Disney World.
-Take a helicopter tour of a major city like NYC.
-Experience the Grand Canyon.
-Zip line through a rainforest canopy.
-Live in my dream house.
-Eat caviar.
-Attend the midnight screening of a movie on the day it opens (done-saw The Hobbit in IMAX at midnight on opening day!).
-Get a henna tattoo.
-Attend a murder mystery dinner.
-Watch all of the James Bond movies.
-Take a fitness class.
-Re-learn how to knit.
-Swing dance more (done-going to weekly parties at I've Got Rhythm!).
-Hand-make all Christmas gifts one year.
-Play paintball.
-Plant a geocache.
-Get paid to cook.
