Bucket List

 Pages 1 2 NEXT
 

I decided the other day that I wanted to sit down and write out a bucket list, thinking that it will give me some direction -something to cross things off of and feel like I'm completing. To feel accomplished in life, I suppose.

I have a few things on mine already:
Throw a message in a bottle into the ocean
Climb a mountain
Finally catch all pokemon

So my question to all of you is what's on your bucket list? What do you want to do before you die?

Lunge wildly at the Pope!

What do I want to do before I die? Well, at the very end of my life when my days are up, I want to mix every single hard core drug into one vial and shoot it up.

But uh... start a crime syndicate? That one sort of comes from a deep seated desire to get drunk in a really nice colorful suit with a bunch of thugs in equally colorful suits, while watching famous politicians getting dragged away by prostitutes so that I have blackmail on everyone in the city in a ritzy bar that I own.

I honestly have no idea what I'd do with all that blackmail. Probably ask for more colorful suits and alcohol.

I started writing my own bucket list the other day too, here's what I have so far:
Get married
Have kids
Travel Europe
Live in Perth
Watch Fremantle win a grand final
Watch an Arsenal match
Graduate university
Write a novel
Own my own house

Hmm... So far away
Have offspring to carry my genes on, maybe murder some criminals and become an avenger

Capacha: "it's over"
Wow that is scary.

* Destroy the reputation of my family and show the world who they really are
* Get to my Love
* Destroy the lives of the people who destroyed mine
* Travel
* finish my Book

Creating "things I must do in my life"-lists tend to just brign depression when you realize that so long have gone by and you haven't done "enough" of them.
I advice against doing so.

LOLOLOLO SO DARK N EDGAY XDDDDDDDDD
I'll just keep watching the papers for insane rapists.
To see if you've succeeded, of course.

Oh, and if you could write "NO JOHN, YOU ARE THE DEMONS" on the wall of the crime scene in your victim's blood, it'd seriously help picking out your case specifically. Just saying.

This is something we don't see a lot of on here. Grats on original topic OP.
Heres mine:

*Graduate from uni. Thats easy since it's coming up in a few months.

*Climb a mountain bigger than Cairngorm in Scotland. Seriously, Britain needs bigger mountains!

*Get something near to 95ish% of my body tattooed. Arm and half a leg already.

*Live in Iceland for a bit.

*Own this building http://www.findaproperty.com/displaystory.aspx?edid=00&salerent=0&storyid=23886

*Keep growing my dreads till the day I die.

Live in Perth? I live here and I've got to ask, why would you want to move to Perth?

OT - Go to Europe (I'm going at the end of the year)
Be in a band
Finally get around to playing D&D
Go to Wacken music festival

Taste-test every root beer I can find, then pair the best root beer with the best vanilla ice cream - including one made by myself - to make the world's best root beer float.
Uppercut a douchebag.
Join MENSA.
Many, many, many, many filthy sexual acts. Many.
See Scotland again. Then Ireland. Then Japan. Then just spend a couple weeks tooling around in continental Europe. Somewhere in the middle of all that, be in a live taping of Top Gear.
Gaming conventions. Anime conventions. Sci-fi conventions. ALL THE CONVENTIONS!!
MANY. So very many.

- Own a small house/farm that is essentially self-sufficient
- Set up a really cool computer network in said house, with lots of automation & robotics mixed in
- Form an active community around any program/tool that I write
- Create at least one mildly successful game
- Be debt free/financially secure

Asides from that, I don't have any goals. Maybe owning a canoe, or going hiking places. Life is more fun without too many commitments, and I'd rather just experience the fun parts without that much of a plan.

-build my own motorcycle and ride it across Canada
-forge my own "masterpiece" sword
-train in kendo and judo
-invent my own style of martial art
-visit Finland
-become a decent musician
-visit japan
-learn 2 new languages
-visit Mongolia

that's at least all i can think of right now.

This list is simple.
Love
and world domination.

-Graduate from uni (two years left; hope my wallet can handle it..)
-Move out of my current state
-Visit Russia
-Learn Gaelic
-Build my second computer
-Get married/cohabitate with my boyfriend
-Try every fruit and vegetable known to man

Palademon:
This list is simple.
Love

World Domination through love perhaps?

OT:
Wander from mid-Sweden (where I live) to Southern Sweden by foot.
Cosplay.
Go on a spontanious adventure.

Palademon:
This list is simple.
and world domination.

Get in line :P

OT:
- Reach 200 on my "hit"list
- Go wingsuit flying
- Go snowboarding as many places as possible
- Personally check the top speed of everything I get to drive
- And of course world domination!

Punch a guy I don't like so hard in the balls that he will never be able to reproduce and make children that I will also hate.

Spend an entire month, every day, researching and brainstorming the fastest ways to destabilize countries, and then form a basic plan of how I would go about it.

Be able to at least once know that I worked hard on something and deserve a break.

Visit Italy.

Learn Russian.

Become a successful and rich writer
Form a grand collection of video game consoles, games and paraphernalia
Go to Japan
Learn Japanese
Go skydiving
Perform various sexually deviant acts (e.g. BDSM, roleplay, orgies, exhibitionism, autogynephilia, etc.)
Take hardcore drugs

This is what I desire before I died-

Visit Japan.
Visit New York.
Meet the girl of my dream and be in a relationship with her.
See my superhero ideas made into reality (I will be content just seeing them in drawing form).
Visit a Xiolin Monk monastery either to be train (as if), witness their kung fu with my own eyes or to be enlighten.
Attend a live Jpop show.

Live in Perth? I live here and I've got to ask, why would you want to move to Perth?

I live in Adelaide... Really it's because I'm studying to become a teacher and I heard that it's easier to get a job over there. Also, the Fremantle Dockers are in Perth!

I kinda want to walk across Europe. Like north to south or something.

Write a book.

...That's all I have.

Th3Ch33s3Cak3:
Pee while standing up.

Well, you could do that now. Just make sure you're naked and in the bath or something, in case the piss flies everywhere.

  • Build, launch and maintain my own orbital satelite/space station. Maybe use it as a base for space robots that gather all that space junk we've got in orbit from where they refuel and such. Would be nice if they could work purely on solar power or some other renewable resource.
  • Build at least 1 robot.
  • Figure out how to use Vertex Buffer Objects in OpenGL.
  • Learn to use Blender properly.
  • Make a game. (That's not pong or a remake of super mario land 2. Already did that. Pong several times.)
  • Shout "FUS ROH DAH" in public.
  • Graduate from college. Seriously, I really have to do that.
  • Get a job (as a programmer). (After I graduate. Obviously.)
  • Do something useful.
  • Do something that's very elaborate and needlesly complicated and very dramatic. Also probably rediculously expensive.
  • Learn to drive a car, fly helicopters and airplains and sail ships, including sailing ships and submarines. Also get licenses to do so.
  • Learn Japanese.
  • I forgot to mention I want to learn to pilot airships too.
  • Build a quadrotor helicopter. Preferably small and robotic.
  • Take over every television and computer screen in the world to do an evil monologue. Like Eggman.
  • Fake my own death and disappear, only to reappear a few thousand years later. (Requires immortality.)
  • Gain immortality.
  • Add more stuff to this list. (Huzzah! One down.)
  • Make an offline bucketlist.

Difficult stuff
* Walk without aid again
* Find a goal in life
* Pilot a helicopter

Easy stuff
* Learn a language
* Complete novel, then rip up (no one shall see my genius)
* stop crying every time I hear this piece of music...

I don't find them depressing so much as motivating. Yeah sometimes it sucks to look at the lists and realize the things I haven't done yet, but it also motivates me to go out and do whatever I can to get to them. And I find it more important to feel accomplished off the ones that we do get done rather than being displeased with the ones we didn't get to complete.

Own every single PS2 game ever.
Have sex once at least to see what all the fuss is about.
Write a short story.
Fire a gun.
Go on a road trip with a best friend.
Get in an Irish bar fight.
Skydive.
Yell at a presidential candidate using Malkavian metaphors about how the US government sucks.
Fart in an elevator that has at least four other people in it.
Go to Japan.
Learn Drunken Crane Fist.
Learn Japanese.
Own a Saint Bernard.
Drive a Lamborghini.
Have something come of my rap album.
Get a tattoo of the original Playstation symbol.
Learn to play Bink no Sake on violin.

Live in japan for a year
Learn Bass
Have lots of sex

I idolize Batman. He is the only idol I deem worthy of my worship, and it should be the same for you. The hands of man have never crafted any other so close to the human ideal as the magnificent Bruce Wayne, and his glory shall bring fear to criminals far and wide forever and ever. Amen.

Good luck with Freo winning mate.
Also, don't bother living in Perth. It's not all it's cracked up to be. (EDIT: I see you're from Adelaide; yeah, move here ASAP)

OT: Save a life (not merely prevent death) through my direct actions.
Lift my own weight (not fussed how: dead lift, press it's all good.)

Be a Doctor (hopefully will help with the first one).
Do a one handed pull up with good form.
Do a one handed push up with good form.
Do a one legged squat with good form.
Run for an hour without stopping. (pace isn't important provided that it's not "jogging" it's got to be running.
