How I Plan To Live

I may only be 20 years old, but I don’t believe it’s ever too early to make a bucket list. Some people may think it’s morbid, but what’s wrong with writing a list of things you want to achieve or do in your lifetime?

It’s less about the death and more about the living, and here’s how I plan to live.

  1. Travel – Australia and America really appeal to me. I’d love to make a whole trip touring America, visiting every state and Australia is the dream. Also, Niagara Falls is a must see sight.
  2. Sleep under the stars – There’s something about the sky at night, with all the stars shining. I love the sight. There’s so much out there in the world, the whole universe and it does fascinate me. Sleeping under the stars just seems like a really amazing and peaceful experience that I’d love to do.
  3. See One Direction Live – Complete! Several times over actually… It doesn’t matter that it was my younger self who made this one, even at 20 I still love seeing them live! Who wouldn’t be amazed to see the biggest boyband in the world!?

  4. Play an extra in a film – I take this back, I did it and I can tell you all that I am not a natural actress! I played an extra in a Christmas scene for my housemates student film, so I can count this one complete too.
  5. Get a tattoo – Still thinking this one through… all in good time.
  6. Disneyland/DisneyworldNow I’ve been to Florida twice and both times, it was incredible. I feel that it is the ultimate theme park experience but even so, I’d still love to visit Disneyland Paris!

  7. Have my writing published – Also complete! Work Experience with the Bristol Post meant I had a few articles published in the newspaper and online. But as a journalist, I do plan to have many more articles added to the published list!
  8. Rescue a dog – However much I’d love a puppy, I can’t help but think of all those dogs living in dog homes after being rescued. They all deserve a loving home with an owner who loves them and I would definitely qualify for one of them! Just need that house of my own before I can save them!
  9. Act in a play – Complete! I was a monkey in my Sixth Form Production of The Jungle Book, which I loved!
  10. Go to an outdoor cinema  – I may have gotten this idea from Grease, but  (in good weather) it would be such a fun experience!
  11. Go to an outdoor concert – the music filling up all the surroundings and the cooling air would be a perfect setting to see my favourite band!


I know I made a Bucket List a few years ago on this blog, but I have since changed my mind on a few things I wrote. This is a much more refined version of how I plan to live.

What would you put on your bucket list?
