My Bucket List || Blogtober


Wow, I know what you're all thinking, October 3rd already!? Seems like yesterday we were all celebrating the new year, it's scary to think how fast life goes past you sometimes and it got me thinking about how I shouldn't take life for granted and that I should grab, take chances and do everything whilst I still can. I mean, being a twenty something year old and still look like you're 16 can have some perks but that wont help me to do things that I want to do with my life.

I find myself making lists frequently, from shopping lists to lists of my favourite colours in alphabetical order, I don't know why, is that odd? I just love the fact that I can grab a pen and paper and write whatever pops into my head (just like I do on here). I also love the fact that I can draw tiny doodles on them, which is what most of my lists consist of - 10% writing, 90% doodles.

Anyway, moving on to my bucket list. I've given it some thought and I've decided that the things below are all things I want to achieve before I turn 30. I think a nine year gap to do all these things is pretty fair, gives me time to sort things out and such.

1. Buy my own house - Because lets face it, as much as I love living at home and having pretty much everything done for me sometimes a little bit of freedom to do your own thing is all you really want. Plus, getting on the property ladder has been a dream of mine for a few years, my own house to fill with quirky things. And cats. Lots of cats.

2. Save Money - I am awful at saving, and I have family and friends who can back me up with this. I want to be able to have security incase something goes wrong (touch wood it doesn't) Time to start saving!

3. See the Northern Lights - I've seen pictures but I think seeing them in person would be a breathtaking and amazing experience.

4. Run a marathon - At this moment in time I can't even run for 5 minutes straight without  getting out of breath and/or tired. I definitely need to work on my fitness levels.

5. Go to Disneyland Florida - Because I'm a big kid and I'd love to explore, see and do everything!

6. Get another tattoo - I already have three but a few more wouldn't hurt right?

7. Learn to Drive - If some of you didn't already know, I can't drive. Being able to pack up my stuff and drive somewhere now and again would be nice.

8. Book a Holiday - To anywhere! Italy, Greece, New York! I just want out of the UK for a while.

9. Solve a Rubix Cube - It's always the little things that count the most.

10. Visit the Grand Canyon - How amazing would that be? Everyone can dream, maybe one day.

One thing I am nervous about though is growing up. The whole concept of it. When are you considered to be an adult 'properly'? Why can't I be twenty something years old and still enjoy drawing with crayons or watching cartoons and not have to worry about my mother walking in and thinking aren't you a bit too old for cartoons? No one is too old for cartoons!... I'm sorry, went off for a bit there didn't I?


Take each new day as an adventure. Take risks, spend money without worrying, eat ice-cream for breakfast! Do whatever you want to do, what's stopping you?

Saying that, I should really get out of bed and do something productive with my day.
