bucket list goals

19 January 2015

         To be honest, I'm not actually sure how many of the pins I've pinned on my Pinterest board "Bucket List" I'm actually going to accomplish in  life.  Perhaps only a few, but I thought it might be fun to show you all some of the things I want to do.  I've been thinking maybe I should organize them into categories, maybe like "Goals to do before I turn ___" or something.  I think bucket lists are great, and in all honesty, this coming summer I'm definitely going to make a list of things to get done in "Summer of 2015" (Who else thinks that sounds just positively amazing?) and get them done.   Maybe I'll even do a post on it to keep me on track.  Because even if it be only a few, I want to accomplish at least a couple things.  So yeah, these are some of my goals/bucket list. 

1.  Watch the sunrise at the beach

OK, so first things first. Watching any sunrise is indescribably beautiful.  It's so pretty, it feels like it fills something inside of you.  Something you just don't get enough of.  And personally I think that watching the sun slowly come up over the horizon and splashing out across the rolling waters would be p.e.r.f.e.c.t.i.o.n.  I don't know, sunrises are just my thing I guess.  :-/

2.  Have a silly string fight 

GUYS. Would this not be the most epic thing ever? Like I have no words to even describe why I want this, I just think it would be so amazing.  But, I guess it also depends on who you're with.  I would definitely want to do this with some of my friends who I'm comfortable around (aka best friends) and have a blast.  But imagine this - a HUGE blogger meetup where we all meet and we all have a silly string fight. WOAH. Just woah. 

 3. Learn how to do a cartwheel  

 Listen, I don't think you understand why I want to do this even. Sure it would be nice and fun and yadda yadda, but I've been attempting at this ever since I can remember.  Ever since, you guys. It has literally been a goal as long as I can remember. I've tried and tried to do this, by  myself, against a wall, and with my friends (who can miraculously do it with such confident ease, it's quite astounding), yet it has never worked. It's honestly so frustrating.... anyone understand? The day I learn how to do a cartwheel will be so monumental I'll probably go buy myself an ice cream cone.  And mentally add myself to the Hall of Fame. 

4. Shop at the Mall of America   

So this would be the definition of fun. And tiredness. And confusion. And hectic.  But those discouraging facts aside, wouldn't it be so amazing?  Apparently it gets the most visits of any mall in the world, so personally I think that would be super exciting to shop there.  Wouldn't it be so cool to just walk around in there with tons of shopping bags on your arms? Yup, I would definitely be in my element.  I'd probably have to split into a three or four day trip though, to get into all the shops and spend all the time I wanted in there :-D

5.  Walk on a frozen lake    

o-o. This. would. be. amazing. And this is probably the only one out of these five that I'll probably accomplish this winter. (Unless I suddenly learn how to cartwheel) And the only reason being I live in a climate where the winters get unbearably cold and the summer turn out unbearably hot.  But then again, "unbearably" is an exaggeration. Some of the people that live near to us actually have a pond and were going skating on it a while ago, so, hmm...maybe I should pay them a visit. ;)  Though, if I do endeavor to do this, I would have to have a picture taken of me or something.  Seriously though, wouldn't that look so cool with you just standing in the middle of a frozen pond? 

So there  you go. Five of my goals/bucket list that I want to accomplish. I tried to pick out the relatively more realistic ones, because unless something major happens in my life, I'm not seeing how I'm going to ride in a limo anytime soon. Just saying. 

So these were some of my goals, what do you want to accomplish? 

thanks for reading ♥


  1. I love summer bucket lists! :) I've only ever really watched the sunrise once, over a cornfield after pulling an all-nighter, and it was lovely (not counting the times I catch a glimpse of it in the mornings before school). I'd love to see more of them. That's actually something I really want to do this year: more sunrises. :D Your other ones made me happy :D I've actually done them all. The MoA is always fun and there's lots of interesting people/things to see!

    1. Same here :)
      Oooh, sounds fun! Yes, I do tend to catch the glimpses of it in the mornings when I rush out the door, (sometimes pausing to just stare awestruck :) , but it's usually in the summer because the sun comes up earlier then. Me too :)
      That's awesome! I'm sure there are plenty of things to see there :)

  2. Great list! I agree, I would love to watch the sunrise more often. With a nice cup of tea in my hand too, right? ;)

    I've never had a silly string fight, but it sounds flippin' AWESOME!!! We can have one together. :D

    Cartwheels are fun. :)

    The Mall of America is kinda fun.....I've been there quite a few times because I live near it. The prices are outrageous though. Nickelodeon Universe and Sea Life Aquarium are the best parts in it. :)

    And walking on a frozen lake sounds sooooo fun too! Thanks for inspiring me with your post, Autumn. :)


    1. Yes, that would be absolutely wonderful! I'd probably take a picture :D
      AWESOME, that would be the only word to describe it :)
      Yeah, I'd figure the prices are crazy, but, hey, at least I can say I went there. :D
      Aww, I'm so happy I did <3

  3. These goals sound awesome and I really wanna be able to do a cartwheel too. Throughout primary school everyone would be doing cartwheels on the grass and stuff, and I could barely even do a summersault. Bucketlists are actually such fantastic ideas!! My friend and I did make one for this summer, which is happening right now where I live, although they're a little more like dares than actual life experiences...

    The Life of Little Me

    1. Yes, same here. It's so frustrating not being able to do one while everyone is just cartwheeling around the yard :D They definitely are! Awesome, hope you complete it!

  4. Love your list! :) One of my goals is also to watch the sunrise at the beach (and snap some pictures of course:). I had the opportunity last summer, but sadly, I slept in. Hehe.

    Cranberries and Crescents

    1. Aww, you were so close! But yes, sleep is very important :P

  5. I really want to cartwheel!.....One time I walked on a frozen pond...does that count? :) XD.

  6. I love this bucket list so much! I'd love to shop at the Mall of America and walk on a frozen lake, too -- you've given me quite a few ideas to add to my bucket list!


    1. Aww, really? I really want to do those too :)


    That sounds like fun! A sunrise on a beach is something I would love to see as well.


be you. be nice. be amazing.
