    i like the list tom, makes me want to write my own..anyways you should definitely donate blood, it is so quick and easy plus it saves lives. also i can teach you to juggle next time i see you.

  2. newfcollins

    A buddy already taught me to juggle. I’m in the process of mastering it before I cross it off my list.

    As for donating blood, I really want to, but my phobia of needles mean it’s going to be long and painful. But I’ll hopefully do it soon.

    Hey, been researching my own bucket list lately and came across yours… Even stole yuor first aid idea. I’m only at number 21, (and two of those may come off in the final draught!). Good luck, and I’ll keep an eye on your progress.

    By the way, he is my uncle and a great guy

    Haven’t Marge and I already told you to get cracking on the kid thing? Course…you gotta feed ’em.

    I was surfing around looking for bucket list ideas, when I stumbled onto your list. I love Earl Emerson!!!! He’s a great author! I am stealing your idea and adding it to my list too!!

    Glad to see someone else who likes him, no one I know does…. then again no one I know reads at the crazy speed that I do!

  12. What an awesome idea. This is a great way to set goals, and keep yourself busy. Gonna start a list now!

    My parents think I’m strange for starting my bucket list when I’m only 15, but in my opinion the sooner I get started the better.
    I was looking up ideas to add and came across yours, and must advise you to indeed read the Harry Potter books, they are amazing. I stole “Be on a game show” and “Learn to juggle”, and also got a few more ideas, thank you 🙂
    I just actually was able to cross off “Fly a plane” from my list, something maybe you could also add. It was one of the most thrilling things I’ve ever done. 😀
    Good luck to you!
