Bucket List

Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot about bucket lists on Facebook, more specifically in a few groups I’m in. I’ve never really had a bucket list. I’ve always said things were on it, but I’d never made one. Well, I made one. I think I have around 120 items as of today (2/6/14,) but will add to it as I think of more things.
