Ever since I was a kid, I have been a day dreamer. I always dreamt of things I wanted, things I wanted to do or things I want others to do for me. I called it ‘my list’. Even though people say I am a grown up now, I am no different. I still have my list written in my diary which gets upgraded every now and then. The list doesn’t have a time line. Its just a list of things I hope to do in this life time.

Anyways, today I have decided to make my list public. Here is my Bucket list –

Get a job that not only pays well but I also love.

Travel to 4 other countries other than India.

Get to my ideal weight not size skinny mind you.

Get married to guy of my dreams and have a happy family with him.

Live in another country for atleast an year.

Learn Guitar.

Work or open a charity organization.

Write a song.

Get one of my works published.

Write a book.

Make a snow man.

Own my own personal library.

Run a marathon or even half.

Get my Dream Camera.

Get interviewed.

Visit as many places as possible for this list.

Go on an African Safari (if i cant then any safari will do).

Learn dancing (preferably Salsa or Belly Dancing).

Learn to swim and go for Scuba Diving in the Great Barrier Reef.

Learn to drive.

Go to a live concert.

Go to the top of Eiffel Tower.

Make a difference in someone’s life.

Donate my eyes.

Donate blood (I m ready to give, none are ready to take).

Learn to make cookies and cakes from scratch.

Fly a kite all by myself (i.e without Dad yelling at me, snatching the kite off my hand and flying it for me).

Learn skating.

Travel in a ship.

Paint on canvas and for once have guts to show off the terrible painting.

Kiss a dolphin.

Go bungee jumping or sky diving.

Ride a hot air balloon.

Go trekking (did it once loved it, wanna do it again).

Build a sandcastle.

Watch an opera or Broadway musical or play.

Watch a cricket match in the stadium.

Spend a day doing crazy things which I would never do in sane mind.

Get a tattoo.

Learn to cook many more dishes.

Go dancing.

Sing in public… something like karaoke.

Own an amazing pair of stilettos and learn to walk in them in lady like manner.

Own a house of my dreams and do the interiors myself.

Kiss in rain.

Have a candle light dinner.

Learn Spanish (I don’t know why but I love this language).

Go on a picnic (can u believe it, I have never gone on one?)

Travel in a ship.

Have pet dog or cat or any animal.

    Do you want to have two personal libraries??? 🙄

  19. lovely list..I have done so many things you have mentioned and it’s making me feel old to say the list..am I catching “soon to be 30” mania? or is it panic? or is it just another phase, or maybe another mood swing..I have never bothered about the age or getting old, so probably a weird mood playing along..and I am blabbering and ranting 😉

    I have touchwood got almost everything I have wanted so far..the only missing this is house of my own..bought with my own money ie..and I am working towards it..hope to have it soon..maybe a few more years? 🙂

  20. Amazing bucket list. Especially on the travel list. I would love to travel the world 🙂

  21. actually i really loved every single bit f it…and am sure every1 did.. because most of the things yu mentioned are the wishlist from everyone’s pocket!!!! esp the job…which at least we Indians never fall intoooo…..sweeet one mate!

  22. AAh nice list. Matches a lot with my list. 🙂

  23. Wonderful list there 🙂

    And about the donating your eye and blood, we have a drive for the same in our company this week, your are welcome 😉

  24. nice list..I wanna do a lot of those things…
    (P.S.-that snowman thing was so cute!)

  25. It’s too many of them but dream big as it says……….i think every dream of yours has some good feeling behind it… donating eyes in particular..in that case u have already achieved ypur biggest dream..thought itself means it.. 🙂

  26. Happy Happy Birthday Harini !! 🙂 Have a lovely day.

  27. Liked your list. Hope you take it seriously 🙂

  28. very interesting bucket list you got there .. not much you asking for .. so heres wishing you all th best and may god bless you with each of those wishes coming true…

    I have been blessed with a few of those things you mentioned coming true.. but let me tell you a secret HARDWORK can get you anything 🙂

    Al the best again

  29. I thought that I had commented on this post.. Turns out that I hadn’t! 😐

    Lovely list Harini. Donate your eyes? Kudos to you.
    ps: Call me when you head for that African Safari will you? It on my to do list too. 🙂

  30. That was a sweet list.. I have many of these on my list too!! 😀 Here is my list:

    Guess I will pick a few from your list and add to mine 🙂 ” Work or open a charity organization.” – good point.. African Safari and scuba diving @ great barrier reaf is on my list too!

  31. A very realistic list. Have you really not done any of those things yet? Amazing the difference… location makes for many of them. For instance, building a snowman (there people who have not)???

    haha… hope that makes sense.

    Go get em girl!

  32. so u want to go to eiffel tower twice??

    i believe all readers would also be interested in knowing how many of those in the wishlist have been realised.

    But a very interesting list, makes me think of a list for myself..I never had any written till date

  33. wow i loved the list and i love this blog 😀

  34. Wow … I’ve always thought to make a bucket list you need to know everything about yourself.

    Small note: most of the things are too abstract . Great people say you need to be specific if you really want to do it.

    Good luck with your list 🙂

  35. Ouch, the bucket is tooo heavy !! Nyways, nice list, hope you finish it soon.

    Add “Revise my bucket list every 10 years” to your list. 🙂

  36. purple moonbeam Reply to purple

    My list has a couple of yours 🙂 Now I’m going to find mine and post it!
    Great list, I hope you get to do all of those. But some of them you don’t need to wait for – like a picnic.. Plan one with your friends and go to a park and set it up in the shade of a tree! 🙂

  37. Hi,

    Hmm… how big is your bucket!! most of the things mentioned have been equally wished for, by me. i love to travel and click.
