My Own Bucket List

Ever since Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson appeared in The Bucket List, it’s become something people do to remind themselves of what they would like to experience before it’s too late. Until recently, I’ve shied away of thinking about a bucket list and it wasn’t because thoughts of mortality make me uncomfortable. It was a combination of two things – it’s difficult for me to know what I want and when I started considering what should go on the list, they seemed “small” and “silly” like visiting a Carnegie Library or buying one real antique or throw a pot. I started this page as a draft about a year and a half ago. Today I decided that I would publish this page and not “censor” the things on the list. After all, this is my own bucket list – it occurs to me that no one needs to sign off on it.

I plan on altering and updating it on an as-needed basis.

  1. Bake a pie (I like baking but for some reason the thought of making a pie crust intimidates me)
  2. Carnegie Library – Carnegie Community Centre Vancouver (April 24, 2015)
  3. Visit England again (Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford University, British Museum)
  4. Fly a kite
  5. Montreal Jazz Festival
  6. Okanagan Wine Tour
  7. Go on an old-fashioned picnic
  8. Travel to Porto Rico
  9. RCMP Musical Ride – PNE Agrodome Carnegie (August 23, 2017)
  10. Learn ballroom dancing
  11. Attend a formal ball (preferably a masked one)
  12. Spa weekend getaway in Victoria
  13. Join a book club
  14. Take part in a drum circle
  15. Learn calligraphy
  16. Visit Casa Loma, Toronto, Ontario
