Personally I have never had a serious Bucket List. I mean sure I’ve always dreamt in the future I would go Skydiving, meet my celebrity crush, go traveling around the world etc etc. But I’ve never exactly thought of a realistic bucket list that I can (hopefully) easily complete and feel satisfied with it all.
In some ways I don’t even know where to start! If I’d ever talk about a ‘Bucket List’ my Mum hated it! “Don’t jinx it!” she’d always say. But it’s important, some people are out there actually living their lives the way they want to and ticking off trips/experiences/goals that they have set for themselves and having an absolutely wicked time. Today I’m going to start that list:
This has always been a dream of mine. I have mentioned before in my blog that I have family out in Adelaide, and I have always, ALWAYS wanted to go and stay with them. Wether that’s for 2 weeks or 2 months. It would be a dream come true.
- Learn how to ride a horse
Im not sure why I haven’t taken a horse riding lesson yet but I have always wanted to! So does my boyfriend. Both of our families own/used to ride horses and we’ve always talked about how beautiful it would be to just go out on a stroll whenever we wanted. Moving onto my next point, I don’t think you could get a more romantic setting than watching the sun go down, riding a horse down the beach with the love of your life. The dream.
- Visit a medium or fortune-teller
I have always been obsessed with physics, mediums etc. I’ve had friends who have told me stories of their experiences and they said how accurate the things they know of you. I think it’s so fascinating and would love to experience it myself. Contact a loved one who has passed, know my future etc.
- Rescue a dog from a shelter
When I was born, I was bought into the world with a dog that my parents had rescued from the RSPCA (a British Animal shelter organisation), he was so lovely! Unfortunately when he passed away when I was around 8, we couldn’t bare not having an animal in the house, so we went to the Blue Cross (again another dog shelter) and we fell in love with the funniest looking, stumpy jack Russell/whatever he’s mixed with, called Nigel. He was homeless and bought into the shelter in the worst condition, beaten, loss of hair. It was awful. 11 years later and he’s still plodding along! We even Brought a puppy into our lives. But I feel rescuing is so important. There are so many animals with awful pasts just looking for their forever home.
Ah now this one. I want to pursue this. I want to be able to say I work for myself and myself only. Not having to answer to anyone, not being taken the piss out of, just being my own boss. Wether that’s being a successful blogger (hah I wish) or starting my own business somehow. I’ve always wanted to make this happen. And hopefully I will
Starting a YouTube channel I’m sure is something a lottttt of people wish to do. Everyday we watch so many successful YouTuber’s making videos for a living and opening themselves to so many incredible opportunities within the business. My boyfriend has always said to me “Do it!”. But man the nerves.
- Start a ‘True crime’ or ‘Where is’ YouTube playlist
I watch tonnes of True Crime and Where is channels on YouTube and I’m obsessed with them. I take notes, I do the research myself, it’s so interesting to me. Not only is it fascinating, it also spreads awareness of whatever subject you’re talking about, which I think is great.
- Take my parents on holiday
My parents are my rocks. They deserve the world and I’m still trying to figure out a way I can make that happen. If I could take them on a well deserved holiday, even just somewhere like Spain, I know it would mean the world to them!
I’ve never had a massive friendship group. I have friends, but I wouldn’t really say I have a ‘best friend’ as such. Wether I actually get to or not, but I would feel so so proud to be someones maid of honour.
Now ever since I’ve been a young teenager, I have ALWAYS wanted to have a baby. I used to watch ‘Teen Mom’ and ’16 And Pregnant’ all the time when I was younger. Seriously. I was obsessed. I still am to be honest. I absolutely cannot wait until I can start a family with the love of my life! Someone that is half me and half him. Ugh, so so so broody.
At the moment my ‘realistic’ dream car choice is an Audi A1. Sport version (or whatever the correct term is), in white with red interior. Ever since I set my heart on one, and me and my boyfriend looked at prices and stuff, I’ve seen them all over the place. It’s such a tease! I think in the near future I can afford to get one, hopefully. However when I’m a lot older. Obviously a Range Rover. No doubt.
- Visit the Love Lock Bridge
Luckily, my boyfriend doesn’t read my blog. Now I’ve said that I’ve probably jinxed it. Anyway, for his 21st birthday this year I want to take him away and I was thinking Paris. And I just think the Love Lock Bridge is the cutest and most romantic thing. I’d get an engraved lock that way it won’t wear out. So sweet.
- Take a photo every single day for a year /video
This is such a great video idea, collecting all pictures and 1 second videos, every single day for a year. To see the change in myself, or anything monumental happening on a certain day.
I am OBSESSED with anything and everything scary/creepy/paranormal. The lot. I am constantly watching ‘Real Paranormal Experiences’ on YouTube and different documentaries. So I’ve always wanted to experience something for myself! Wether that means I can’t sleep for the next few weeks! I’d find it so exciting.
So there we go! My first, official, on paper, bucket list!
I now have this for reference and to hopefully tick off within the near future! I didn’t want to be too dramatic with this, and I feel most of the things on my list can be easily completed!
I’d love to hear what you guys’ bucket list ideas and dreams are in the comments below! Or tweet me! Here’s a link to my Twitter.
Thanks for reading!
