The Point of Cool and Crazy Bucket List Ideas

The point of a bucket list is to get you to have a goal and to not let life pass you by. My friend Libby realized this very thing. She was writing things and decided one day to start living out the ideas she wrote on her bucket list. I have written my own personal bucket list and I intend to cross at least five of them off every year. I try to balance it between something fun, something random and giving of my time or resources. What does life really mean if you aren’t helping someone else? Yeah, I like to think oft as a well-rounded list. Honestly, like I stated before everything does not have to be, I want to own a private airplane and fly to Dubai, (hmm that doesn’t sound half bad). But until that happens I’m happy with doing things I can do and saving and preparing for other things that I want to do. So what is on your bucket list for this year?
