My Bucket List

The movie made me cry which is to be expected because the thought of someone dying makes my eyes well up. Basically the guy makes a list of things he wants to do before he dies, after finding out he has a terminal illness.
So I have challenged myself to make a bucket list. I am not sure if it will work or not because I am the kind of person that once I make a list, I get tempted to finish it. I don't really like half doing things. Here goes.

1. Bungee Jump off Royal Gorge Suspension Bridge, USA – 1053 ft (321 m)

Probably not the smartest Idea for me because I am terrified of heights, but I think it's something that I have to do before I die. 

2. Ball Room Dance In A Fancy Dress

Dancing these days usually consists of jumping up and down on the spot with one/ both hands raised in the air. Whilst I love this idea of dancing (because I am highly uncoordinated) I have always wondered what it would be like to sway around the room in a fluffed up fabric.

3. Sleep On a traditional Egyptian Felucca over night.

I love camping but there is something so cool about these boats. Last time I was in Egypt we did a cruise down the Nile, and whilst I loved living it up on a luxurious boat, part of me wonders what it would be like to watch fall asleep under the stars on a boat floating down the Nile.

4. Give Another Person Life

Eg. Mother hood. I've always wanted kids, and I am sure that before I die I will have kids. Even if I can't have a biological child, I would love to adopt. It's a little bit early for me to be thinking about this now though.

5. Go On the Cyclone Roller Coaster Ride at Dreamworld, QLD

When I was younger My dad, Brother and I drove to Queensland from Sydney, we got to dreamworld, lined up for about an hour and before I could get on the ride I chickened out and proceeded to watch my 8 year old brother (2 years younger than me) take my place. Ever since I have held my tounge and just gone on the ride. But this is the one ride that I chickened out of, and before I die I would love the chance to redeem myself.

6. Get A Tattoo 

I know my mum said that she will be "Deeply disappointed" in me if I get a tattoo, but I am determined to get one before I die. I don't want to get an all round one like this old fart, but something small that is unique, on my wrist, neck or back. I know it comes across kind of skanky or unkept but to me it just seems cool.

7. Run A marathon for Charity 

I'm not a champ runner, but I think with a little bit of training I could get it done. I've done a couple of charity runs already since last year, but I would love to have the achievement of running one before I die.

8. Hug 10 Random People on the Street

I know it's already been done but I'm the kind of person that when I am introduced to someone, I will hug them, unless it's professional of course. I need to put a limit to it, just for myself because I know that once I start, I wont stop.
