Can I Get a Shovel With My Bucket?

My Bucket List started in 2007. I had never seen the movie and actually didn’t refer to it as my “bucket list” at the time. It wasn’t until later that I called it what everyone else is calling it. Thanks Warner Brothers!

I’ve added (and taken away) items over the years. I’ve also rewritten it during several different exercises since 2007. I’m adding a tab so that you can easily get to it in the future. The below list is a combination of everything my tiny brain feels I need to accomplish in this lifetime:
