My Bucket List (100 Things I Want To Do Before I Die)

By now, you’re probably already bored of my travel blog posts. I do apologize, but I’m just the kind of person who makes a series out of everything. I like slicing the events of my life into chewable days so they’re not all one time, big time. Anyway, let me do something different today. I want to share with you my very own Bucket List. Actually, now, I wrote it down clearly saying it’s the “List of 100 things I want to do before I die”, but that’s about the same thing, right? I don’t have the 100 items on my list yet. I’m working on them, though. 🙂

I know some of you have a lot of travel goals this year (and throughout your entire life), but my Bucket List is a bit different from that. I don’t have a lot of travel goals on my list. And about my goals that involve going to another country, we’ll just see. As of the moment, I don’t even have a passport, so. HAHA.

Oh, by the way, this list comes in no particular order. I also don’t have a deadline for each one. I also don’t force things to happen. If I get to do them all, then awesome. If not, then maybe I’m just not meant to do them. 🙂

    It seems like I wanna do this, listing my bucketlist! I learned how to ride a bike around 10 years old and I enjoy biking so much! I want to meet an online friend soon. I have so many goals and I’m on my way crossing them on my list 🙂

      Do it! It’s fun. And after a few months or so, you can go back to your list and maybe cross off some of the simple ones. You never know. 😉

    I wonder what’s in the next half of this list. Hehe I agree, these are pretty doable. 🙂 Sometimes small/minor things make up the big things! 🙂

    Bae, share mo naman yung recipe na na-master mo na hehe I want to learn new dishes! I only know a few hehe Learning to bake is also one of my goals. I just need to buy an oven first haha

    It’s really not easy to learn a dialect! I know Bisaya but I just learned it over time. I don’t know how I learned it. But my parents/relatives say that maybe because I keep on hearing Bisaya from them hehe some of my relatives used to stay in our home back then. So maybe at a young age, I was able to adapt? Hehe

      I know it’s easy to learn a new language at a young age! Nako, actually super easy lang nung mga na-master ko and I don’t measure! I rely on my taste.

      I wonder, too! Nung ginawa ko to I sat down and wrote the craziest ideas I could think of. Crazy na sakin yung pumunta ng US kasi parang sobrang laking goal for me. Takot pa naman ako makipagusap sa ibang race kasi minsan hindi ko maintindhan. Haha. Iniisip ko pa lang interview for US visa, nanlalambot na ako. Haha.

      Thank you! Still waiting for the right moment to do this. Every time I hear “haircut for a cause” events, I’ve already gone to a salon the day before. I always miss those opportunities. Until that time comes, I’ll have to grow my undercut muna. Hehe.
