At 21, people look at me a bit funny sometimes when I say ‘that’s on my Bucket list’. Yes, I am young but I’d be lying if I told you I hadn’t thought about dying or that I’d been in a near-death experience that made me re-think my entire life (there’s been more than once). This Blog Post is going to be slightly different than my others as it will be an on-going post for if I need to add anything else or when I tick something off my list.
I’d also like to add that all of my bucket lists is stuff I feel that I am unable to do currently because of my severe anxiety so I will feel so much more accomplished if I manage to finish even 1 of this list.
I’m ashamed to say I live in England, and that I’ve never been. I have wanted to go since I first found out about them in a Geography Class in Year 7. (11 years old)
Drive on a real racetrack.
I love cars and it has influenced my life. I’d just love to get into a decent car and drive with reckless abandon.
Own a ’69 Beetle. (Half of the way there, I have a ’05 plate.)
I have wanted to own a ‘Herbie’ since the 2005 movie ‘Herbie- Fully Loaded’ came out in 2005. I’m kind of glad that my current love bug is as old as my love for bugs.
This has been a childhood dream that I alway’s hoped I would have done with my Husky, who sadly passed away in February. Although she is no longer with me, I will sled with a team of dogs, one day.
Visit all the Disney Parks.
Unfortunately, I have never been to any of them yet, Disney will always be a major part of my life and I cannot wait to experience it all and share my love with my daughter.
Visit Warner Bros. Studio Tour.
I mean who doesn’t want to go on the set of Harry Potter?
See Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
I’ve been outside the theatre, but that doesn’t count!
Look for the Loch Ness Monster.
Scotland is another place I have never been and there are a few places that I’d like to check out especially after falling in love with Outlander set in Scotland, but I need to check out the famous lake and look out for Nessie.
I want to go visit Vancouver as a lot of the books I have read have been set there and a friend who is an author lives there, I’d love to surprise her one day and just turn up and go for a coffee as we have never met in real life before!
See The Temper Trap live.
I would like to be able to officially say I have seen all of my favourite (living) musicians live, this one ticks that box.
Meet the Band of Horses.
I have seen these live, but I would love to meet them, get a picture and an autograph. their music has a had a major impact on my life and got me through some really tough times so I’d love to be able to thank them in person.
Touch a Koala.
A Koala is one of the animal’s that I find irresistibly cute but I have this vision of them not being the way I portray them in my mind so I’d love to touch and hold one.
Meet a REAL reindeer.
I have never, ever in my 21 years of life, seen a REAL reindeer.
I was debating on whether to put this on or not, as I would like to get married before I die. But it has to be to someone I really really love. I’m not a serial bride haha.
Take my daughter to see Frozen West End Musical.
I don’t care whether Amelia is 20 when we eventually get around to doing this but I will take her. For the memories and how much it’s impacted her childhood, Elsa and Anna are her real heroes.
Go on the London Eye.
I’ve been to London twice, and every time I have missed out on this opportunity. A part of my heart belongs in London and always will. Plus I get to go back to Hamley’s!
Publish A Novel.
Of course, this is on the list and this will hopefully be done sooner rather than later. A childhood dream I will accomplish.
Ice Skate the Bolero.
So this one is a bit weird but I have obsessed over Torvil and Dean’s Bolero since I was a child and I’d love to perform that act just once. I also cannot Ice Skate so the whole thing will just be an overall rewarding experience.
Roadtrip the entire UK.
I know this sounds ambitious but this is one of those things I’d like to do when I’m having my midlife crisis and any children I have been able to look after themselves, drive and travel my home country with the one I love.
Shave my head.
I think this is one of those things that I think everyone should do at least once in their life and I cannot wait to do it. It is going to be very liberating but not just yet guys.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading through some of the things on my Bucket List. Tell me in the comments what is on yours!
