Bucket List

A bucket list is made up of 100 (or in my case, probably more than 100) things one wishes to accomplish / see / do / etc. during their lifetime. In my case, some of them are silly and some of them are serious. Obviously this is all up to God so I'm cool with whatever He has planned for me, whether that includes the things on my bucket list, or not. :)
