Bucket lists

I think deep down, whether we use the phrase 'bucket list' or not, everyone of us has a list of things they would like to do or see before death.
Image result for bucket list quotesI have been very fortunate that this year already I have had the opportunity do cross a few items off my bucket list.
I went to Utah to visit Tiffani.
I saw the Mormon Tabernacle Choir not once, but twice
I heard 'Don't Look Back in Anger' live
I saw Richard Ashcroft play live.
This week I get to see The Avett Brothers play live in London (EEK!!!)
I realise how very fortunate I am to be in a position where I can enjoy these things, and I started to think about my own bucket list.
I started to think about creating a 40 before 40 list.
The only thing with that is that it then leads to a 50 before 50 etc....
So I decided that the best thing to do is to create a bucket list.
It will be a work in progress so I can add to it as I come across other things I would like to do.
This time, I shall keep the list on a tab at the top of the blog so that I can cross it out as I complete things, rather like I did for my 30 before 30 challenge.

So..... the big question. What is going to be on my bucket list. I hope to have 100 items, but so far I have only thought of 25. If you have any suggestions of what I have forgotten feel free to let me know!

14. Do a colour run

  1. When you come back to Utah, I've got a friend who does tattoos, my mom can teach you how to crochet, I can help you with your family tree (and then embroider it for you ) and i dream of a hot air balloon ride too, so maybe we can share that.

Turning 28.

Well. It happened. I turned 28. You know, ignoring a manic depression which lasted all of 20 minutes, I'm pretty ok with it. Rather than shy away from the fact that 30 is just around the corner, I've decided to confront it. Head on. "How?" I hear you ask. Well I have decided to celebrate the final years of being a twenty-something by embarking on a '30 things to do before I'm 30' challenge. I've been working on it for weeks. My friends here in Edinburgh have been really encouraging and I think together we have compiled a pretty mega list. Here we go (in no particular order) 1)Read the BBC top 100 books 2)Bungee jump (I should mention here I'm afraid of heights) 3)Go zorbing 4)Learn a new language 5)Visit the Sistine Chapel 6)Make a quilt (I've always wanted to. I blame Winona Ryder) 7)Visit Tiffani in Utah 8)Parachute Jump with Agata 9)Raise money for charity 10)Do the Great Scottish Run (ugh. The idea pains me.) 11)Sell something

Life of Lu 7/6/2012

I love Edinburgh. I think you should know. I love it truly. Every day I feel more settled. Every week I feel new friendships grow deeper. I really am content. So content that I sing. Poorly. I should apologise for that. I really like my new job. Sometimes I feel my head may explode with information. Then it digests and I feel capable again. It is nice to use my brain again. It does help that I have wonderful colleagues. They make it easy to love the job. I will be working with them for at least 7 more weeks. Then I finish my training. After that... who knows? Euro 2012 fever has taken over our wee flat. It bores me terribly but the boy loves it, so I pretend. I pretend quite well. I predict Russia to win. He reckons Portugal. I hope I win! I have a new cousin! And one on the way. I wish I could meet them soober than October. Hurry up October! I should mention that we're popping over in October. Pints? Anyone? Lastly, I received an amazing gift at the we

January

I found out yesterday that I was one of the winners of the photography competition that I entered as one of my 30 before 30. My photograph will now be used in a calender as the January image. How exciting! What do you think?
