The Bucket List

Posted by: Matt

I talk all the time about how what my biggest and most elusive dream in life (writing for a living) has already come true. That said, I still have a bucket list. No, I am not talking about a DVD of the 2007 movie staring the ageless Morgan Freeman and the increasingly old Jack Nicholson.

I’m talking about the fact that I am not done dreaming. There is still a ton of stuff I want to do before I die, and I’ll be lucky if I live long enough to do it.

My list (as it currently stands) is as follows:

  1. Learn Karate
  2. Learn to play guitar
  3. Learn a language or two (Spanish, then Italian)
  4. Learn all about wine (Don’t worry, I will use this power for good and not be a pretentious D-Bag about it)
  5. Learn to cook

Is this it?

No, not really. I left out any professional milestones I want to hit (like becoming a bestselling author and having a Jack Blank theme park inside of Walt Disney World), and I left out things that I consider a given (like owning flashy cars, traveling the world, and having 6-pack abs).

This list is comprised of the main things I want to do that will help me become what I see as the ideal version of myself. Life is an education, and as long as you’re still living, you’re never “done” (however much I might strive to be).


QUESTION: What’s on your bucket list?

    It seems my list should also include, “Stop overusing parentheses in my blog posts.”

    that’s a GREAT list Matt – however, we’re adding visit Spokane, WA and even better Zipline Interactive to your list ;)
