Bucket List Confessions

Humpday Confessions, Ryan Gosling

If you’re one of the cool kids (or wannabe cool kids), you know that on Wednesdays we wear pink link-up with Kathy for some Humpday Confessions. And if you’ve somehow been hiding under a rock and have no clue what I’m talking about, then I am not so silently judging you.

Humpday Confessions, Judging you

I confess that I have an incurable case of wanderlust and a strong desire for adventure. I spend most of my days lost in a never ending stream of daydreams about traveling the world and trying new things. Now, if only I could get paid to daydream and travel. I’d be a very happy camper!

Because of my insatiable desire for travel and adventure, a few years ago I created a bucket list. I haven’t exactly been successful at crossing things off my list, but I’m a procrastinator. It’ll get done… someday.

Here are a few things I’ve yet to do:

Sky Dive

And you better believe I’m going to look just like this man because I am the villain hero that Gotham deserves.

Bucket list, Sky dive

Scuba Dive

Somebody has to find Nemo! That fish is like Carl from The Walking Dead. Nobody ever knows where he is.

Swim with sharks

You might be thinking, “This bitch is crazy!” But I’d be in a cage, so it’s basically like a zoo in reverse. 🙂

See the Northern Lights

Take a cross country road trip

One of these days I’m going to pile into the car and just drive. Hopefully, it won’t be because I’m actually living in my car.

Bucket List Confessions, Cross country road trip

Take an Alaskan cruise

Learn a new language

I still can’t decide what language I want to learn. If it was up to me, I’d learn them all. Yup, I’m a nerd.

What’s on your bucket list? Do you have any suggestions for mine?

  • Don

    My bucket list includes:
    Bungee jumping
    Running with the Bulls
    Backpacking across Europe
    Visiting Tokyo
    Writing for a movie or tv show

    • I totally want to bungee jump and backpack across Europe! I’ve been around the UK, but never made it to some of the other places I want to see. 🙂 That last one would be awesome! Then I can say that I read your stuff before you made it to Hollywood. 😀

  • I wish I swam so I could scuba dive! I dream of doing it in the Great Coral Reef. And swim with like a Great White? You are crazy!!! The Northern Lights would be something amazing! That GIF for the cross country trip, amazing. Alaska is on my bucket list!!!! Hummm…my bucket list…haven’t given it much thought but probably road bike across the country (prolly need a month or more), instead of jumping from a plane – learn to fly a plane, and see the redwoods in California.

    • Ooh, road biking across America would be amazing! I’ve thought of learning to fly a plane also. I have a friend who’s a pilot and he pretty much has me convinced that going up in the plane at sunset is the best thing ever. 🙂

      Haha. I knew some people would think some of these were crazy, especially after I read their bump it lists a few weeks ago. I’m usually up for trying anything one.

  • I can’t do most of these things on your list. My fear is a real struggle haha. I might jump in the car and go somewhere…but I prefer to stay on the land. Not above it, or in the water with all its scary creatures. Nope. No thanks.

    • Haha! That’s how my sister feels about it too. She’s more the type to take a trip than try anything risky. I’m the oddball in the family. 🙂

  • I’m going to admit there are several things on your list that I would not do….the shark and the sky diving doesn’t really do it for me 😉 I would like to see the northern lights and maybe scuba diving at a reef. It is so hard for me to make a list like this because I would have something like “see all the countries” 🙂 Thanks for sharing your list!

    • Oh, yes! Seeing every country would be on my list. Hah. All I think about is traveling. 🙂

  • Monica

    Great list! I definitely am not going anywhere near sharks or scuba diving but I love the rest!

    • 🙂 I’m glad that you can relate to a few things on my bucket list. I think a lot of people would avoid the sharks.

  • my friend just went to see the northern lights. her pictures are amazing!!!

    • That’s so awesome! I’ve always wanted to see the Northern Lights. Where did she go?

  • kathy @ vodka and soda

    diving is THE BEST. i went when i was in Jamaica and we headed out to trelawny which has an amazing dive site. it didn’t hurt that the dive instructor was hot and i ended up sucking face with him…while my boyfriend at the time was back at the hotel in mobay HAHAHAHAHA! (i was 18 and stupid and my bf annoyed me).

    thanks for linking up:)
    Vodka and Soda

    • Bahaha. I love your stories. You were such a baller! I dated a few losers back in the day. We’ll just call that being young and stupid. Thankfully they went on to be someone else’s problem. 🙂

  • Learning a new language is definitely on mine and my husbands bucket list as something we want to do together!!

    But dang girl- you are crazy! Some of these things would just scare the crap outta me!

    • Haha! I’m pretty sure my mom would agree with your sentiments. I’ve always been somewhat of a thrill seeker I suppose. 🙂

  • Michael

    I am in COMPLETE agreement on items 2-6! The craziest thing on my bucket list? I want to see a tornado in person.

    • I actually and unexpectedly experienced a very small tornado in person! Hah. I remember watching the sign to a Wienerschnitzel fly away and thinking it looked like the drive-in scene in Twister. I’m glad I’m not the only crazy one around! 😀

  • Everytime I read someone else’s bucket list, mine grows! Swimming with sharks would be awesome yet terrifying! x

    • Yay! I’m glad that I can contribute to your bucket list! Now, if only I could convince my boyfriend to join me on at least half of these. Haha. 😀

  • I’m a fraidy cat so I don’t think I would do anything on your list! And I hate road trips, I just want to get there already! I’ve never gotten to visit Europe, so something as simple as that would be great for me!

    • Haha! I do hate some road trips. It’s really all about the people you’re going with and the tunes your jamming out to. Personally, some of my favorite times have been jamming out to boy band music in my car with my friends. Haha. 😀

  • Kelli

    I want to take a cross country road trip but I want to go slow and do it on my time.

    • I would love to just take my time and stop wherever and whenever I want along the way for however long I want. That would awesome! 😀

  • Amy

    Ooh aye, I’d also learn ALL the languages if I could, just got the 3 on the go at the minute! Loving the Alaskan cruise too

  • I could never skydive. Too scary for me!

    I’m really not sure what would be on my Bucket List. Probably to travel more.

  • Spanish! I feel like that is SO useful, especially with what a melting pot our country is!

    • I’m Hispanic, so I actually already speak Spanish. It does come in handy, especially in Texas! 😀

      • Oh yay!! That’s so awesome. Me and the hubby-to-be are definitely thinking about taking like 6 weeks to go to Costa Rica to go to an immersion program. Maybe next year!

        • That would be awesome! Costa Rica is on my list of places that I want to visit. 😀

  • Some scary stuff on here! I know there’s lots I want to do, but right now the one thing I can think is that I would like to see a firefly (or a whole host of them).

    • I really miss seeing fireflies. We used to have a lot of them around here when I was little, but they’ve disappeared. I watched a documentary a while back about how light pollution killed off many of the fireflies. 🙁 I’d love to see them again!

  • Having just completed a cross country road trip, I definitely agree it belong on every bucket list!! Learning a new language is great – I have done this but would love to take it to the next level and really master it! Taking an Alaskan cruise would be amazing too! My fiance has his scuba diving license so if that’s not motivation for me to get mine, I don’t know what is haha

    • I’m so jealous that you completed a cross country road trip! 🙂 That’s amazing. And I really want to get my scuba license, so I’m trying to plan for it this year. 🙂

  • Amanda

    Fuck noooooooooo to shark diving. You ARE crazy! bahahahaha

    • Haha. I’m sure I’ll be thinking the same thing when I find myself face to face with Jaws! 😀

  • My friend took an Alaskan cruise and LOVED it! She said they saw all sorts of cool stuff and a castle! I think the castle may have actually been in Canada, but whatev it was on the cruise, so it counts as part of the Alaska part. My boo thang loves to scuba! He taught it for 10 years in FL, if you crave wandering and adventure, that may be the job for you!

    • Haha. The castle totally counts as part of Alaska! 😀 Oh, wow! Teaching scuba diving sounds like an awesome job. 😀

  • Love this list! Skydiving was one of the best (if not most terrifying) things I’ve ever done, and I’ve swam with sharks, but they were nursing sharks and stingrays, so it wasn’t too scary. Not sure if I’d be able to be with big sharks in a cage though! I tried scuba diving, but during training, I kinda had a freakout while clearing my mask, but I’d definitely like to try again. I’m with you on the road trip, and I think the place I’d most like to visit is Australia!

    • Oh, yes. I’ve heard that it’s very easy to freak out when you’re learning to scuba dive. Hopefully, I won’t have a random panic attack. 🙂 It sounds like you’ve done a lot of fun stuff! I really need to start on my list. 🙂

  • Hey Girl, I love the mad men GIF! We are def. the koolest kids ever for linking up to hump day conf.’s! And I cannot tell you how hard I laughed at the parachute photo! Love that hahahh!!


  • I want to see all 50 states. I think a cross country road trip will need to happen to help me with that.

    • Definitely! It would be amazing to just take your time with it and enjoy each state. Someday.

  • I just don’t know if i could ever sky dive!

    • My mom thinks I’m crazy for even thinking about it! But I have to do it at least once. 😀

  • I totally want to take a cross country road trip!!! I have my route planned out and everything. Now I just need the time and money to do it!

    • That’s awesome! Which way are you thinking about going? Any must sees along the way? I wish we could just get paid to travel. That would be ideal. 😀

  • love this! i have a whole list of things i want to do before i am 30. or before a baby, lol. i want to skydive too – that pic is hilarious. and the road trip gif made me laugh so hard

    • These are mainly on my list of things to do before I’m 30, but I’m so behind on the list and only have 1 1/2 more years. I decided as long as I do them before I actually kick the bucket I’m good. Haha.

  • I love your bucket list, most if not all of those things are on mine! I would also love to visit all 7 continents 🙂

    • That’s definitely on my bucket list too! 😀 I think it’d be amazing to travel all over the world. 🙂

      • Hopefully one day we both will be able to 🙂

  • love your bucket list! so brave, i don’t think i could handle skydiving or swimming with sharks. i definitely would love to visit every state, and travel abroad. confession: i’m lame, outside of the us, i’ve only ever been to canada! :/

    • That’s not lame! I haven’t been to Canada. 🙂 Besides, we have so much to see in the U.S. already. It’s a lot harder for us to travel to other countries because of the big ticket price to get there. Meanwhile, people in Europe can travel by train or cheap plane rides. 🙁

  • really|really} good.|
