Bucket List Progress

In November last year I revamped my bucket list a little bit.  I basically added lots and lots and lots of things to it.  At the end of that blog post I’d assembled a list of 379 items.  Since then I’ve added more items.  The total is now 394.  And the completed total has increased too, from 44 to 53.  I’m working towards a few others.

The total list, except from a few private items, can be found here, along with how well I’m doing.

The purpose of this post, and of follow ups every six months, is to tell you all what I’ve been doing to complete my bucket list 🙂

Well, let’s start with item #21.  Make it to Christmas 2014.  I was having a REALLY bad year.  I honestly did know if I would survive much longer.  But I did.  I made it to Christmas.  Just about.  My depression is still really playing up, especially with recent developments.  Maybe I should add “Make it to Christmas 2015”.

Next up is item #28.  See Wicked again.


I went to see this in Southampton, and it was just as epic as the first time I saw it 🙂  I’m going to see Shrek the Musical this year, which will cross off another item on the list.

Item #39.  Host a giant, multi part RAOA contest.  RAOA is the Random Acts of Amazon subreddit, and I currently have a 13 stage contest running.  I’m enjoying it 🙂  And I like giving.

Item #49.  Try needle felting.  I was given a needle felting kit for Christmas and I had a go.  I liked it 🙂  Once I’ve moved, it’s a hobby I’ll continue I think.

Item #152.  Design a cocktail.  I did this when my friend set me a scavenger hunt in November.

PicMonkey Collage

It’s called a Passionate Kiwi.  It was yummy.

Item #184.  Complete a sudoku book.  This one isn’t ticked off just yet, but it should be by the next update.  Mum gave me a sudoku book for Christmas and I’ve been gradually working my way through it.

Item #190.  Make 1000 origami stars.  I’m not at the whole 1000 yet, but I’ve made a good start.    I have 456 so far 🙂

Item #258.  Zentangle a canvas.  I have actually done this…

…but I’m not entirely happy with it so I’m not checking it off the list.  I am working on a second piece.

Item #376.  Donate 10,000 grains of rice.  I did this!


…and I blogged about it too.

The final four are items that I’d already done when I added them to the list: see a circus, walk across Brooklyn Bridge, ride the London Eye and be on TV.

I think 53 is a good number down, and I’m getting them done gradually 🙂

What’s on your bucket list?


Note: 13th June 2016 – I’ve revamped the list again so some of these item numbers might be a little off.
