My Version of a Bucket List

Last week, I talked about a list I made in 2010 of things I wanted to do before I graduated college. [To view the post, click here.] I then promised to make a new list, a sort-of bucket list if you will, to share with you.

I love lists and literally cannot function without them. I am square.

So, without further ado (sorry for the subcategories, can't help myself) -

24 Things I Want to do Before I turn 24

Domestic Things
1. Start a garden
2. Go 1 month without shopping (food and healthcare items excluded)
3. Craft with my old 4-H ribbons
4. Make chocolate oatmeal cake
5. Put all of my CDs onto my iTunes account

Good Citizen Things

Traveling Things
16. See Stoney LaRue (carryover from my college list)
17. Go fishing
18. Visit Joe in Stillwater, Okla.
19. Return to Manhattan, Kan.
20. Go to a baseball game

Personal Things
21. Read 3 non-fiction books
22. Lose 20 lbs.
23. Buy a new laptop
24. Watch The Hatfields & McCoys

I really tried to look for attainable, but challenging goals! I have to admit, coming up with 24 things was hard, so thanks to my friends for helping and inspiring me.

Do you have your own bucket list? Did I miss something important on mine?

Until next time,


  1. Ok I can help with 3,7, 16 and 18 can be combined with 7.
