My bucket list

What is a bucket list? Before the age of 18 I had no idea what a bucket list is and what is it used for? Well, basically, bucket list contains all the goals that people want to achieve, dreams that people want to fulfill or activities that they want to experience at least one time in their entire life.

Why do we create a bucket list? I started creating a bucket list when I was 18 but the contents were not very well expressed, dismally. Nonetheless, three years ago when I started to work part time and make money from my own in order to no need to ask money from my family when I need something and it was quite damn hard at the beginning and I realized making money isn’t that simple, I also (heartbreakingly) realized that I need something to remind me not to mess my life up or spend most of my time catching up in a flurry of day-to-day activities. As a result, an efficient bucket list came out. Bucket list isn’t only a tool to remind me to stop taking everything for granted, but it also demonstrates those accomplishments that I have been achieving in the past 3-6-9 months and what my upcoming goals for the next 3-6-9 months are. To be more precise, I am now in a committed relationship with bucket list lol.

The main objective of creating bucket list isn’t to instill some kind of a race against time or to create aversion toward death. It visualizes the fact that it doesn’t make any sense to limit our existence within our physical years on earth, even there is a fact that lifespan is short and we cannot know what will happen in future. Hence, why don’t we maximize every single moment of our existence and live our life the fullest? Does it make any sense to you

So hereby I want to show you my never-ending work in progress. It will be continuously altered, updated, contemplated and rejuvenated. Before you even ask: YES- I know my bucket list is huge and YES- I do think most of the ideas in my list are crazy and YES- I truly believe that I can complete everything on it before I die (jk but i hope). The bucket list has completely changed my life (in a positive way) and hopefully, it will do the same to those who has it.
